This is an ink wash drawing from way back in art college, sometime in the late '90s. I was very experimental with mediums back then. I remember finding it very hard to control. It does create some beautiful shapes in the shadows, but you can't fix your drawing when you make a mistake.
The Askafroa (Swedish: wife of the ash tree) also known as the Danish Askefrue and German Eschenfrau, is a type of legendary creature in Scandinavian and German folklore, similar to the Greek Hamadryads. The Askafroa is the guardian of the ash tree. The Askafroa was thought to be a malicious creature which did much damage, and to propitiate her it was necessary to make a sacrifice to her on Ash Wednesday.
