Homeland by BettinaMarson Homeland by BettinaMarson
Thought I might enter this into the James and the Giant Peach competition, since it's a bit of escapism that I invented in my mind. :)

Edit: Wow! I made it into the top 25 / semifinals!! [link]

This is an illustration of the dust walkers - earthly spirits of the world. Whilst the star children came down from the celestial stream in the sky, the dust walkers are native spirits of the earth.They are strongly connected to the earth, with the ability to manipulate the elements and harmonise with the land. They make their homes in mounds in the earth and form small tribes, with no more than seven members per tribe.

I thought it was what would happen to the giant peach pip eventually.. And they were insects on top of the mound of that.. But your story's good too!

This is a beautiful painting, and I love the colours. But doesn't the chimney with smoke coming out of it seem a bit contradictory if they are earthly spirits?
Congrats on getting into semifinals by the way ^^

Haha thank you! Nope, they are magma spirits so they radiate heat and smoke. :)
