This is a colorized version of an original pencil drawing and has never been published. This portrait of Niniri is another one of my pieces that will have to be redone at a higher resolution because I saved this one too low. Duh.
Happily, it turns out that A Distant Soil‘s most loyal supporter, Allan Harvey, has the original pencil drawing, as well as several other pieces, including cover art. He is scanning all of them and sending me high res digital copies.
If you also have any A Distant Soil art in your archives, I hope you will help out our digital restoration! Thanks!
