  I’ll be honest, I can’t think of anything more fun to draw then some one tromping through the woods… and as a result you’ll find many a panel of Tesana + crew doing just that.  Besides it being the perfect excuse to scribble trees and live vicariously through my characters (because lets face it, […]
