Oak king by Ironshod Oak king by Ironshod
As some you you may already have seen I've been working on a set of artworks with the theme of an enchanted woodland. It is just like a normal forest but if you go there and take the time to look closely you might find the creatures are a little unusal

The green man is a classic and woodland based subject so I thought one should be included. This is an oak based tree image with celtic style branch designs. I imagine him emerging from the trees and looking down over the enchanted wood as a sort of guardian.

You can view some others in the set here ...

This screams Obadhai from Dungeons and Dragons. He's the God of nature and the elements. Love it!

I'm pretty sure this is actually his Holy Symbol in the D&D 3.5 Player's Handbook. In a much less well drawn manner, of course.

It is similar in composition to your spirit of Yule,but the expression is mischievous rather than jolly. Double-fave!
