So excited to finish my first piece for my Patreon! I don't have many supporters yet but it's really helped to make sure I am doing work for myself. Anyways this piece started off by being inspired by The Kingkiller Chronicles where Kvothe meets the Cthaeh but then it morphed into my own thing. Red hair, butterflies, and trees in fairy land still stuck. No fancy brushes to help with grass or textures. Mostly all done with a basic brush except for where I used a hair brush for the character's hair. I'm happy with this in that it's a good representation of what I hope to do with my Patreon pieces which is more hours invested, no shortcuts, extensive reference, and stuff that you might hang on your wall.

beautiful work! I'm trying to figure out the patron thing myself but I'm not finding it very intuitive..

Thanks. Yeah the Patreon UI is pretty aweful and I feel like it's still a hurdle to get people to support on there. Seems like people prefer kickstarters.

Love the apples hanging from the tree-spirits back/head.  

This is great stuff - looking forward to seeing other Patreon works!

Thanks Melissa. In the books, the Cthaeh knew everything that had happened and would happen and used that knowledge for evil.  Made me think of the tree of knowledge which eventually led to me putting in the apples and the snake just as another fun reference.
