Zombie Tree by Matakoura Zombie Tree by Matakoura
Meet another native from Miirdan's world! However, this creature is known as an Eieth-tha....and to cut a long story short it's basically what happens when a cannibalistic tree tries to eat a human (or other living thing) but can't finish the job, meaning the two individuals (the tree and the person) are fused into one. Tree zombie! Yay! :D

The main character from the new comic I'm working on (Fold) may also be one of these.

This is done in gouache paint, on Bockingford A4 watercolour paper. 

Enjoy!

I like the interplay of light and shadow.
Her hair and the textures of the tree are very well done.
It's an all-round interesting image.

Like I said: Everything.
I also love the fact that I cannot find a single spot of black in the color scheme other than the lines (and her hair) and that makes me so happy you have no idea.
The color scheme works very well, did you use color theory? Because I'm definitely seeing a play of complimentary colors that you managed to pull off very well! I applaud you :D
Keep up the good work!

Haha thank you! I'm glad to appease your colour palette XD 
I definitely did! I like to use colour theory, it really adds a lot to an image. Thank you so much for your feedback! :D

So surreal and cool. I love the texturing you used for the bark and leaves. And the colors are so beautiful.

I like the texture on the tree, and the way the woman is painted.
But especially the overall dynamic composition of it.

I love the way the girl fits in so well, the way her hair is connected with the tree. Also the colours and the stile is really amazing. : 3 Keep it up, buddy.

Love the whole concept!

The idea of this creature becoming one (humantree creature)
The composition and colors are amazing, with this subtle atmosphere of night. But what I really loves is the movement and texture, like a fluent action
:clap:

Great artwork!
