Well, this is my second entry in this contest, and hopefully the last one. I was kind of deceived by my first proposition, seeing the global skill level of people in here. So as ideas continued to flow I decided to take my chance again, in the way I know best, my Blackout technique.
This illustration is fully traditionnally-made.
Introducing The Godmother, colossus of the Life Plan, a giver of life and a destroyer. She represents the passing state of Greenscale's philosophy, she gives life energy to rise and civilisate, and she slowly takes it away as the tide of Time pass away.
She's basically made of a bright cocoon restraining a boiling essence of life, surrounded by floating stone vestiges of passed civilizations and lifeforms yet to come. She wanders along the endless jungles of Telara, inspiring and decaying beings.
