Happy Sunday to all of you!
It has been a few weeks since I've posted, and I apologize for the delay. I am correcting this immediately with this new video today!
This is a recently completed, personal project, titled 'The Green Man', which is my take on the male counterpoint to Mother Nature, or Gaia in most Pagan religions and cultural groups.
-He is essentially a Pagan elemental Nature Deity.
The Green Man is usually depicted as a man made out of leaves. He is associated with the stag deer for virility, is also known as Cernunnos or Herne, (among other colorful names), and is sometimes depicted wearing the horns of a stag as well.
I have five stags in my rendition at the Green Man's feet to represent the five points of the Pagan Pentagram, representing in turn the different elemental energies in their belief systems.
I've long held a fascination for Pagan religions (and comparative religions in general), and felt drawn to paint the Green Man for some time. Finally got to it!
I hope you enjoy the video, and look out for more involved video tutorials on this project in the near term. Some awesome digital projects coming up soon too!
Thanks for stopping in, and have a great week everyone.
