Genius Loci: Watching tree

"For two days we've been closing in and it never let me out of its sight. I don't mind stones watching me, but trees - trees are crazy."
— Sfina, Areal traveller

This is a reworked older piece of Genius Loci. Every now and then, things about the world I'm developing change and some artworks need to be updated; here, I decided the Area does not have a daytime, and it's always night. See the old version in my Artstationa account: www.artstation.com/jenniferlan…


Check out Genius Loci on my blog Starmaker's Gaze.

I find Genius Loci very interesting entities, even though they are mostly unheard of nowadays. But I did have the opportunity to document the physiology of the Genius Loci on the Superpower Wiki. 😉

Interesting, I had no idea such a site exists. Naturally it's not exactly how I imagine it - a genius loci is pretty much the worst thing that can happen in my world - but I agree that the idea is pretty cool. Perhaps with the foreseeable rise of Indian and other Asian entertainment products we'll see more of them again, the West has become a little de-spiritualised.

Yup, now it is all saturated with Zombies. But I don't care. LOL. 😂

I like "smombie" - a mixture of smartphone + zombie. They don't know I exist of course, but I meet a lot of those :D

Reminds me of one of the more recent DC Comics stories called DCeased, where the corrupted Anti-Life Equation had been bonded to Cyborg, and once he returned to Earth, the people around with cellphones, had started to get mind f**ked by the ALE itself, turning them into living Zombies.


Aside from that though, there are indeed different types of Zombies, like these guys shown below. My personal favorites are the Metazombies and Mutated Zombies, the Zompire, and finally, the Zombie Lord, which are far more rarer compared with the Vampire Lords themselves.

Not bad - the article illustration for the Zombie Lord is kinda un-frightening :DI think Undead Machines are favourite material. If (big if) I have a plasma gun.

I love putting eyes on plants! I never feel watched by them though, so I guess I'm just playing. Or maybe it really WAS their revenge to die on me...
Thank you!

This reminds me of that Google computer that dreams. I ran your art through the dream and got this: deepdreamgenerator.com/ddream/…

Keep up the amazing work!

That's pretty neat, thanks for showing me. There are animals everywhere in there! Peacocks and deer and fish, it's really cool. I should try putting some other images through that.
