After yesterdays release of a fairly old video I am happy to also release a new one from a rescent painting today! The initial sketch was done as part of a daily drawing routine I started in December 2016: Every day at least one character drawing. I Liked how it turned out, so I decided to make a painting out of it. There are more fairy characters like this one and I think I’ll paint a few of them too.

Due to some technical issues I couldn’t import the Camtasia recording into Premiere, resulting in a worse quality… gonna switch recording software for future videos

The Golden Birch, one of the largest trees found in the country, houses one of the strongest fairy societies recorded. Their city spans the whole tree, from its roots up to its crown. The magical nature of the Golden Birch helps to sustain and protect the fairies. In turn they protect the tree from vermin, woodcutters and sometimes overzealous scholars (I still feel the sting of their little spears ). Part of their defensive force is the Crown Watch. As their name suggests they are mostly stationed in the high crown and the far branches of the tree, keeping an eye on the outside world. Depending on the level of threat they either engage directly or report to the deeper layers of the tree to call for reinforcements.
