After The Fall: Messenger /Waiting
Had a story in my head and thought it could work as a shirt/hoodie combo-
Each year, after a season of growth, the old oak tree picks his most beautiful leaf and sends it to his lost love… The messenger, in return for carrying out this task, lives among the oak’s branches-

I love fall, and tree people (and birds), so- Hope you dig it too…
Here are some bigger images-

I love your ent, but it does seem kind of morbid to me to see him sitting on a tree stump. hehe

I loooooove autumn too!

Beautiful work! I like your color choices and the way the two designs seem to be telling a story together.

Thanks for voting!

I am a teacher by degree, not by trade. I still have the eye implants in the back of my head. And the pun directory is still installed on my cranial harddrive.

So many details! The tree man reminds me of an Ent from LOTR.

...or perhaps Telperion, mourning the loss of Laurelin...

Maybe you two should take a break from this naysaying. Personally, I think everybody deserves Galador tidings.
