The Crag sleeps for decades and when it wakes it is foul tempered, intolerant of others and destructive to anyone who invades its space, which is wherever it wanders - due to its dominant darker nature.
There is a certain Enchantress who can subdue the ‘Hyde’ part of an elemental beast and bring out its better nature.
This was done almost entirely in Flash with the brush and fill tools - the only thing I added in Photoshop was the texture. I created many symbols of grass clumps and leaf clumps so as to speed the work up. Each major part of the Crag beast is painted separately so that it may be animated in the future. Now that I mention it it occurs to me I could have done the same for the branches of the head-tree aswell for extra motion effect! Maybe someday ...
