Here's the cover of Tales of the Perilous Realm for comparison. As to what the figure is, I've never really formally identified it as dragon or boggart or spriggans except as something which fits the world of the Tom Bombadil poems, where Goldberry lives under water and her mother is some form of river spirit.
 -

If you think this is too generally fantasy and not Perilous Realm- Tolkien-specific enough, I'll find something else. I've just never really liked the purple tree.

Varnafindë, if you want to try to make it green just for the fun of trying, please try. Thanks.

Would this be a better tree?

 -

Then there is the option of having it transparent, if you like ...
Centered ...

 -

or left-aligned

 -

The original picture had less than 16 colors, so I changed each value of purple in the palette to the corresponding value of green, and hoped that it would give a similar overall impression.

Here's the centered version again, just to show you what the transparency will look like on the darker grey background ...

 -

I think I'll recommend it with the original white background after all.

Thank you Varna, squaring it off was an excellent idea. []

[] My copy of LotR is the one with the Pauline Baynes slipcover, showing a view framed by black and yellow trees. Sadly, now defunct, after years of heavy reading. []

A bit late with the reply here. I wasn't gone all that long for Oxonmoot, but it sure seemed to leave me with lots of catching up to do once I returned home.

I think since Varnafindë kindly played with the colour of my original avatar here, I will go with that new green one, aligned left and without the white background.

If I may,White Gold Wielder. Thanks!

Surely green is a more appropriate color than purple for the daughter of Tom and Goldberry.

Would it be considered 'too similar' if I were to re-do my own with a higher quality image now that better ones exist? People were always nagging me to back in the day, IIRC. However, I don't want to waste my time if it's going to cause avatar-confusion with the gallery and all. Do let me know, WGW. []

Thanks, WGW.

After some internal debate, I think I'd like to have this one please. []

(Hopefully it displays properly and I uploaded the correct file-size one, I haven't done this in a while! Feel free to poke me with a stick if I messed up somewhere! [] )
