This i was inspired by a few sources through my life. One of them was a wood-gnome creature - in an old computer game, i had once, called Quest For Glory 4: Shadows of Darkness set in and old Russian/Transilvanian town (I would love to have that game again, working properly) - and it was called a Domovoi. It was shaped like a regular person only as far as it did had arms and legs and torso, but had big feet like i included and a big nose and mustache and stuff. I also saw, somewhere while walking on a forest path, four branches reaching up like i included in the drawing. I immediately thought i should do a creature with branches like that coming from its back or its head ... This also feels influenced slightly by that guy who does those big books like 'Good Faeries and Bad Faeries' whose name escapes me. I also always envisioned him to be a long triangle ... so i added ears to his knee/ankles to complete the shape started by the nose.
