? 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:
The magical realm of Terratoff is ruled by the faun race, as they were the first creatures born into the world by "The Mother Tree". One day the Mother Tree rotted, and from that day on she passed on the rot to her children, creating the plague that infects magical creatures known as "The Rott". It was prophesied that the "First Faun" and her children would play a crucial role in restoring their world back to life and defeating "The Rott", so long as their bloodline kept the crown. 

Gloria is one of the more recent Queens from the bloodline of the first faun. She represents revolution, and is best known for rescuing hundreds of human men, women, and children from the clutches of Rotten soldiers that enslaved them. 

You see, humans cannot contract "The Rott" because they are not creatures of magic. BUT Rotten creatures can teleport inside of a vulnerable human body and effectively posses them. The Rotten then use the humans as disposable body armor in their war against the pure "Winnow" uninfected creatures.

Gloria discovered that by calling out the Rotten creature that possessed the human by name, it could be purged from the body, returning control to the human soul within. Thanks solely to Gloria's tireless efforts to rescue and recruit mankind to the cause, the Rott has been pushed back farther than ever before. 

Sadly, her glorious reign was cut short, when she was murdered by one of her own daughters. The start of Terratoff's main story-line begins shortly after her untimely death. She is shown here with her eyes shut, as is the custom in Terratoff when creating portraits of the departed.
