If you've read 'The Wise Man's Fear' you'll know who/what Cthaeh was. This scene was inspired by the encounter between Kvothe and Cthaeh, while he was in Felurian land. I chose to depict Kvothe in the most traditional look he has throughout the book (at least in my mind) although at the time of this encounter he didn't have his lute with him (nor any clothes, for that matter...). In some other details I was also not completely faithful to the scene in the book (the path deviated more from the tree, for example, but that didn't work visually in one single still image). The clouds were also not present in the book but I thought it worked well for the concept.
Rendered in Vue, as always.
