Based on the idea of the tree I started to think of other ideas we could do with a forest such as forest spirits like the ones from Princess Mononoke and the Spiderwick Sprites.
I had a go at drawing one that I found on Tony DiTerlizzi‘s blog about the Spiderwick Sprites he drew. I really like his work because of the use of inks to colour his drawings. I also really like designing characters based on plants and nature so seeing these drawings was quite helpful.
I then came up with this piece of art based on our tree creature idea and what the environment would be like. I used markers and watered down black ink to colour this. I only coloured the little tree creature because I was originally going to colour it all but I decided to do it in grey instead.
We also had the idea of two volcanoes one being small but powerful and the other being large and not so powerful, so this is just a drawing based on this idea.
I also started this drawing which I might do digitally later on
I also started a pinterest board because I really like the tree idea.
