? WHAT IS #MarchOfTheFauns? For the month of March 2018 I am creating one of a kind faun and satyr drawings all month long! Its called #MarchOfTheFauns , a monthly themed challenge to celebrate and engage with the online fantasy art community. Specifically, I explored and expanded the lore of fauns within my own IP, a magical world called "#Terratoff"
STORY: STORY: Blue Hair is known to his kin as "The Beautiful Rott". He seems to be the only Rotten creature in Terratoff to have kept his beauty despite the magical plague. He may look handsome, but do not be fooled! Blue Hair is no longer the sweet child he once was. In fact, many consider him to be the most manipulative and dangerous Rott of them all!
Long ago, Blue Hair was a gorgeous and vibrant child, singing and prancing wherever he went. He had the voice of a cherub, every shimmering chord he sang a bewitching note of perfection. But all of that changed when the young fawn grew into a buck... His once haunting voice cracked and croaked as his body and voice began to mature.
Blue Hair's heart was broken, he tried EVERYTHING he could think of to save his voice. He was eventually caught trying to mutilate himself in a final desperate attempt, but it was far too late. Ashamed, Blue Hair vanished into the dark lands, the realm of shadows and home to the Rott.
When Blue Hair finally emerged from the darkness he looked perfectly well, somehow even more dazzling than before. But all was not well... Consumed by vanity and wounded pride, he would stop at nothing to regain what he lost. Using his enchanted flute to lure them away, Blue Hair hunted down and possessed unassuming human singers. Every voice he stole eventually became a human life lost... until he found a voice so enchanting and unattainable that none other would suffice....
