Withyjack by ursulav Withyjack by ursulav
At long last, having completed my lengthy move across the country, I can paint again! So here's my latest vaguely Froud-ish oddity, which is basically a glorified doodle done solely because I-can-paint-again-damnit. It's a withyjack. They might be a type of fairy. They might not be. I don't know. It might be a male or a female--again, I don't know. They have very elongate limbs for wading and catching fish or something. It's entirely digital, in Painter and Photoshop.

And now you know just as much about it as I do.

this is speactacular. reminds me of a dream i had long ago--i seemed to be in the amazon jungle--this shaman put a wooden mask on his face and the eyes lit up with fire...

Ever read the Chronicles of Narnia? This guy reminds me of a Marshwiggle uncannily. Although the only marshwiggle (Puddleglum) you meet likes to wear a tall pointed hat and his nose is like 6 inches long. Maybe this is Puddleglum's long lost cousin from Madagasgar or something...:)

When I saw the title my mind went "Withywindle?" which, of course, is the name of the river that went through the Old Forest in Tolkein's Middle Earth. Of course now that that tangents over, I will say it looks amazing. The limbs and the look...just great.

Awesome. His arms and legs look like half-dried bamboo...I wish my glorified doodles were this good.
