Hi! I’m here waving at you this week because we’re hoping to boost our Supporter count. When we removed most of the ads from NG in January, our goal was to hit 4,000 active Supporters in 2020. We’re making steady progress but are coming up about 300 people short! If you have $3 per month or $25 per year to spare, please consider becoming a Supporter today!

Spent a fair amount of time working on this, as before it is a colour experiment although could potentially become concept art depending on how far I get with my current project.

looks cool :) so whats the story on this background and the flares on the far right are those monster's eyes?

Jindo responds:

The story basically is that we have this fiery entity using its powers to take control of the 'forest' depicted; the roots (or tentacles) entangling the creature's 'attacks' (depicted by thicker, warmer branches sprouting from the top-down) are the work of the forest itself as it fights for continued independence. I didn't think so far ahead as to why this is happening but I guess it's fitting that we're only aware of what we can see.

The flares to the right are indeed the monster's eyes, I chose not to give it a fully physical image so as to imply that it is not of this world + create a feeling of superior strength and power as the creature is not bounded by a physical body.

Thanks for viewing and for your comments!
