Tree Spirits by astral-phoenix Tree Spirits by astral-phoenix
After having no idea what to draw, I took a pencil and started drawing whatever it was, that my subconscious was hiding away... I ended up having this little cute face looking at me from the sketchbook page :)
I continued drawing and I have drawn the roots of the tree... Then I knew what I was drawing, and continued the whole thing untill it was complete.
I love trees, and admire their beauty and wisdom and I love the elementals and I do believe trees have spirits....

--------------------------
Please FULL VIEW :)

So anyhow, it's not anything very spectacular but I hope you'll like it...

Comments are always welcome of course :)

I had this idea for a long time, and tried it out, but it didn't work. I was very impressed when I saw this work!
The title is just perfect. I also admire trees.
You expressed your thoughts perfectly. It started with a sketch, but without knowing it, you told a lot about yourself :)

The best thing about trees is that they're so versatile. This pic is eerie yet somewhat cheerful at the same time; it makes one wonder the perplexities of it. It kinda looks like the faces on the left and right are sniffing the neighbors. ;) Very creative design overall! :trout:

I like this drawing a lot, it's interesting. Sometimes it's nice to just draw whatever is on your mind, it sometimes makes some very interesting drawings :)

It's great - the whole rooted-sprouting theme is eerily set with the scene being at night. Very subliminal in the way the mind snaps awake after midnight.

Very interesting concept, which you have managed to pull off in a very professional fashion. Apart from the excellently detailed tree, the depth you have used in the piece as a result of the good gradient shading gives the third dimension. Nice work :)

Great idea! I really like the cute style, and surreal feeling. You might want to try blending to remove the pencil lines - Try a blending stick (basically a tight roll of paper), they're cheap and worth the effort! Keep up the good work :D

I don't like blending that much, but I might try to make it a little bit smoother. :)

Beautiful. I love the differences in all of the tree faces. I adore the tree that sticks it's nose out to smell the flower. The moon is beautiful and rounded like a crater in the sky. I can't find anything that needs improvement. I love it just the way it is.

i like the shadows in the background ... my fav face is the one near the bottom that has 3 bits of curly hair. the girl who has legs and arms that are also part of the tree is cool because i have never seen something like that on deviant... every time i look at it i see something new!!

This is one of my favourites of your drawings. The shadows and shading are so realistic, and the spirits are so lifelike. For consistency's sake, I would have shaded the lower half of the background slightly darker, to continue the nighttime-ish feel that you've got going on with the moon and the darkness at the top. Well done!

Thank you so much ! I was wondering about that background myself, but I think for now I will jsut leave it as it is... it was only ment to make the tree stand out a bit more :)

thanks again ! :hug:
