? 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"
During the "Restoration Age" of Terratoff, the Winnow (pure) creatures of the realm lived in relative peace and harmony thanks to Queen Gloria. It was she who turned the tide against the Rotten army, bringing mankind and Winnow together in partnership against the great plague that corrupted magical creatures from within.
But the peace would not last forever, fate would have Terratoff slip back into darkness yet again... starting with a grave betrayal. The return of the Rott began on the night Queen Gloria was brutally slain at the threshold of her throne by one of her own daughters. A witness but unable to intervene, Nema's heart broke as her mother's blood was spilled...her sister lost... her family destroyed.
Swept away by the royal guard, Nema's life was spared that dark night. Though she yet lived, there was no time for her to mourn for her mother, for the shadow had only just begun to spread...From the ramparts she and her soldiers saw the Rotten army marching across the land... coming to take the castle. Their forces far too great to overcome.
To save her people, Nema abandoned the castle and fled under ground into the dark with her followers...where they would wait in hiding while the Rott reclaimed and spoiled the land.
Though all seemed lost and her soul filled with grief, Nema quietly took on the mantle of the crown, and began to devise a plan to restore the Winnow back into the light. Using her powers over water, she started speaking through puddles in the dark tunnels, hoping to reach someone who could help... even if they had to travel across the realms to find them...
