What a stupid title. lol I couldn't think of something better, really. XD
This was a very, very quick concept picture I did about the Plant Spirit and I know I could have put more details and colour tones in but it was 1 o'clock in the night and I wanted to finish it. Dead lines for the win.

With this picture, I wanted to show something very special about the Plant Spirit, which is the heart. The plants which surround the plant spirit cover its heart, the most vulnerable part and source for the plants to live.
So, the vines and other plants which the spirit let grow, belong to it hence it can feel if someone stepped on a little leaf or broke a vine.

When running really fast, the spirit can merely jump out of its coverage aside some main vines which belong to its being, like an aorta but come back to surround the body as soon as the spirit stops.
Without the coverage of the plants, the spirit is just something like a ghost, something nonmaterial and untouchable. The heart is the only excisting thing beside the plants.

To me, it seems you put enough detail and color in to kill something, like the viewer, and (hopefully) send them to somewhere better, like the Plant Spirit's realm. Anyway, yeah, this is incredible, it is hard to believe that you are human with human hands when you can create such crazy good drawings with those same hands. Keep it up, AlectorFencer, you are beastly awesome at whatever you do to do this kind of art. Peace.

This plant spirit is really original. I love the color and depth in all your pieces. I hope one day to be half as talented as you!
