I'm speechless. This is officially the best illustration I've seen in two months :)
I love the way the branches wrap around him. It makes the composition look very organic, like an art nouveau poster.

Great style! I love your devotion to details and vivid coloring. This reminds me a bit of works by Jim Fitzpatrick.

I the most certainly do!
Its interesting that in alot of ancient slavic texts he is described as walking until his feet were sore, as he had to travel from the underworld to the mortal realm to bring spring back. But he is also always described as having a horse or riding one. So while this may at first seem absurd, if you think about it you could interpret that he was a Centaur. which is just soo cool
