Lady Faun :: Earth [JAC] by stinawo Lady Faun :: Earth [JAC] by stinawo
Done for #JoGees current art challenge: Create an elemental character based on one or a mix of the four elements; earth, wind, fire, water.

I chose to do Earth and when it comes to the classical elements, mythology almost always comes to mind. I've drawn minotaurs but I've never drawn a faun and thought this challenge was the perfect opportunity to draw up a lady faun. Since fauns are usually associated with forests anyway, I decided to design her as a Mother Nature type character...think "Fern Gully" or something similar.

She has a gem that gives her all of her Gaia-like abilities. In my character's universe, some female fauns are born with the gem embedded into their forehead. All may show exceptional skills with magic and have a deep understanding of the forest and all who dwell in it, but only one can be chosen to act as queen or head priestess, the highest divinity rank.

I love using orange and brown palettes with bright hues for these kind of characters. Yep, she's a ginger. ;P There's twisting vines and branches everywhere, from her horns to her hooves, and leaves to cover up her upper lady bits....for all of you youngins.

This challenge was fun, as are all the other challenges and this totally makes me want to draw more fauns....
