Ancient Realms by TrollGirl Ancient Realms by TrollGirl
Made for :iconellygator:'s contest - [link]

Once a benign queen of faeryfolk, one day she was possessed by an evil spirit, inspired to build an item to crush wills and enslave, the Ankh of Dreams, through which the mind of every creature in the kingdom could be reached an manipulated.
The Dark Fae Queen established her reign of terror over the kingdom, and no one could escape it.
When finally the Crusaders of light and the Sky Wizards, joined their forces and subdued her, they could neither kill her, nor shatter the Ankh. So she walks the hushed halls of her castle, wanders for centuries, neither mortal nor ghost, dreaming of the day she'll rise again and crush her enemies. Her faithful minion had been turned to stone by the years, but the hellish spirits within the Ankh wait for the day to strike again.

watercolor, pencils, some photoshop

Ow, wow O_O
I love the design of the ankh + dreamcatcher :D
The fairy is lovely and the imp/gargoyle's *thinks* I doubt "cute" would suit here, I just like him then :XD:

Also, great textures :D The steps, the ankh, the background.

And I love the story :)
(I saw one typo: reached an manipulated => and)
