So this next tutorial is going to be based on a popular figure known to lots of hippies and the like. The 'Green Man' represents the spirits of plants, foliage, and tress, or more so basically the spirit of growth and prosperity. He is a legendary deity who originated from Europe and the British Isles. This man is most commonly seen in most medieval art and church decorations. The character has a body (or commonly face) full of foliage, from leaves, branches, fruits and other green growth that you see outside every day. I had fun drawing the details of the leaves and trying to customize the face in a manor where you get the feeling of an old man within a mask of foliage. I went ahead and added a rustic – granite background to accent the ancient characteristics of this guy. You should try to draw the guidelines as accurately as possible, though it isn't necessary. Anyways, I've got to get going on my other tutorials that I know you'll love. Stay tuned and let me know your thoughts on this tutorial or if you've heard of 'the Green Man'! Peace and love!
