Thank you.

This is my entry for the "Green man / Earth woman" contest held by :iconmanipulatethis:  Our New Challenge: Green Man/Earth WomanGROUP NEWS
Good Evening To All You Wonderful Members!
If you may have noticed that I've already posted the current entries for the "Altered Fairy Tales" Challenge; HOWEVER the challenge is not over. It ends on Sunday, June 10th at 5:00 Pacific Standard Time, so those of you are still trying to make the deadline, do so.  It'll be no problem adding your entry way before the judging begins.
I'm going to be traveling most of Sunday and Monday, so I thought I'd go ahead and get some stuff done around the group before I leave for the airport.

Looks great. I like the overall blending hue you went with, and the texture pulls everything together. It occurs to me though, that the blue leaves could possibly benefit from standing out a touch more, they offer the potential for a striking color contrast. Good work! :)

Thank you very much for your nice words! :flowerhugs: by Helen-Baq
You're right for the blue leaves, that's also why I put a link to my original work here : Green-man  which is larger than this one and with more blue parts ;)
When I worked on this creation I made it as I feel it, and after, I realized that it was not enough focused on the face regarding on the special contest request, so I cropped it ;)
But maybe I could have put some more blue leaves after cropped the work, so the contrast color would have be more present :)

Anyway, thank you very much for your constructive critique, I appreciate it! :hug:

Does the Green-man have braces?
Mahhona's avatar
Braces ? Why do you ask about that ? No se... 
iibrickelii's avatar
It just looked like it. It's still cool though.
Mahhona's avatar
lol :laughing: Well in fact, I first tried to clean his teeth so they were very white :D But it looked very strange and it didn't fit with the general ambiance.
So I decided to durty them, as the green man has no toothbrush and as he is part of a tree so he normally must have some small pieces of forest dust on the teeth :D
But I would never thought that it could look like braces! :laughing:
