As most of my recent pictures, this one started as a playing around with colours and brushes because I wanted to get used to digital drawing and painting again yet I had the Plant Spirit in my head all the time.
This one was done really quickley.

I don't have so much to say what explains the picture because it is a random "happening" again. I didn't plan it.
It is roughly another concept painting for my story line. If you can remember one sketch of my sketch dump about the plant spirit, there is a very similar to this one.
There are more pictures in my head about it and those will be planned and better described.

For now, I just can say that I love mos so much hence I put as much as possible into the picture.
And yeah, I was depressed earlier today and moaning how well concept designers can paint backgrounds and foliage and now I did this picture without reference. Funny, isn't it? XD

I think the banana shake I made today helped me a lot to push up my fantasy. lol

Wow. The highlights on the trees and the sun streaming through the leaves really bring this to life.
