Sarah Emma Edmonds II: Transformation, Step 7

My focus at the moment is on making the left third of the woods dark, threatening -- almost the sense of having been scorched by fire. To that end I've started adding some black to the trunks and limbs I want to have appear the darkest. This portion will be representative of Sarah Emma's childhood, dominated by a father who clearly resented the fact that she had been born female rather than male, and characterized by her constant frustration and bitterness at never being able to win his approval.
