The Plant Spirit by AlectorFencer The Plant Spirit by AlectorFencer
Pfew. After the pc crashed, I'm glad I finished this picture today. I've been planning this sheet for ages and finally got around to it. The Plant spirit is now one of my most favourite creatures. At the beginning, I wasn't pleased with the wolf face but the more I merged it together with the plants, the more I liked it.
I'm still not sure whether I leave the face like that because I got some further (comic) plans with it. *rubs hands*


And if someone is interested in Plant Spirit ACEOS, here are the first three.

I think I remember seeing something like this in a movie, but I can't remember the name of the movie, T~T, but the creature kept on attacking this strange girl while she was trying to get to this giant eagle spirit. . . . .idk, but this is a cool drawing!~

Lady in the Water is a movie that has this sort of creature in it. Freaking awesome movie and freaking awesome drawing.

I have question. I really like this art. Can I use it on this web side please:

Your arts are AWSOME *-*.

It is very amazing how this character gives me some kind of enchanted feeling. The colours you've used are very beautiful. The only thing that bothers me is that his/her face is white and all the other parts of the body are greenish, which makes him/her look pretty weird. But that is just my opinion. This character is still breathtakingly beautiful, no matter what colour his/her face is. The details are incredible, they really make this character look mighty and spiritual.
(Sorry for my crappy English, I extremely seldom write comments in English that are this long.)

Wow, your stuff really improves throughout the years. Neat pic. That's something I always forget to do when I make new characters. Make a page like this, doing size ratio and just a pic of.

man that looks awesome, wondering if you wanted to help me with SHADOWRUN, its a cyberpunk game with elves and trolls and spirits, im looking for some wolf spirit ideas and came across this beautiful piece of artwork.
jpfallen Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2009
have you seen lady in the water? it looks like a version of the wolves in that movie except they were all grass
A-lie134 Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2009
^^ I really love this guy!! He has a really nice design, and he kind of remind of Mononoke ;p (I think you already have heard something like that lol, but he looks totally like he would pass in that movie -well if you made a mix of those white wolves and the ForestGod, you would so got something like this XD)

Anyway great work on him!! :D
youjustdealwithit101 Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2009
I like this. But you know what it reminds me of?
The evil creatures off of Lady in the Water.
They're called Scrunts. They have grass on there back and can flatten themselves so no human can see them.
They are supposed to kill narfs or sea nymphs.
tenshi632 Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2009
great art is really awesome but I would have used a stag redeer caribu not one such a wolf to show a plant spirit but is just my opinion
TornxDragon Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2009
So beautiful..
I think this is where the inspirationfor the Scrunt from lady in the water came from...except the plant spirit isnt evil! but very very beautful!! :iconspazhugplz:

I love your plant spirit. All your paintings are really beautiful and i love that often you paint the polluted city message with your plant spirit.
I like this concept you have, a really creative idea. I find a lot woulda put leaf symbols or something on the wolfs coat, but you decided to let the vegetation take over the wolf. its really beautiful and i think it shows a stronger image of the "plant spirit" idea.
that and i :heart: the colors =)

Your character looks like a hero version of the Scrunt from 'Lady in the Water.'

redravern Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2009
great work, seen something a bit like this in a move i think they called it a Scrunt (where do they come up with these names)

He's beautifull!I love how he's not just,"one with nature"but is nature himself.
Getaro Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
I would really like to know..
A wolf is fast, plants don't move at all.. so, is he fast or does he move kinda slowly?
Also; is he an agressive or more like a passive spirit? (I hope you know what I mean..)

Dein Pflanzengeist ist wirklich ein wunderschönes Wesen. Er strahlt eine gewisse Ruhe und Güte aus, finde ich...
Und nein, er erinnert auch mich nicht (!!!) an "Prinzessin Mononoke". Obwohl mich auch bei diesem Pflanzengeist, wie beim Film, die Fantasie und tolle Umsetzung begeistern...^^ Reg dich nicht zu sehr auf, weil die alle keine Ahnung haben!^^
Ganz liebe Grüße, prayer:-*
AlectorFencer Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2008
Hihihi. Vielen Dank! Ich bin froh, dass dir meine Umsetzung des Pflanzengeists so gut gefaellt und dass er dich ein bisschen inspiriert. :D

Stunning character. I've looked at the other art of him and the concepts, and he is just amazing. The plants over his body look so hard to do. Probably takes awhile, huh?

Great artwork and character. ^^
AlectorFencer Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2008
Thanks so much! :hug:
Yeah, it takes a long time to paint every leaf individually. :D
PaleHok Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm not sure why, but the plant spirit reminds me of Akira, or Princess Mononoke. o_o You did a gorgeous job with the vines by the way, that must've been a pain. And that face is so pretty cc:
