“If you look hard and long, you can find us. If you listen hard and long, you can hear any of us, call any of us, that you want.” He added, “The madness was to teach you something. You should mind the lesson.” - The badger to Daine in her dream
FINALLY finished Daine up! She is my favorite of the trio, the first Tamora Pierce book I read, and the reason I have a lifelong love for animals. Started this cover first before Alanna and Kel but finished it last because I wanted to get her just right. Daine is riding her pony Cloud, and has a bow in hand ready to shoot. Numair is flying by her side in a (more colorful) falcon form and the Badger god is in the background. I choose to focus on patterning and cloth to reflect Daine’s growing up in a small mountain village- and it also relates the threads of Wild Magic itself.
