EDIT: Wow, this is the second time this piece has gotten a DD. Thanks so much!
Please visit my main account ~nolwen as I don't use this one except for an online portfolio.


Azoulas, Guardian of the Forests and Woods, from my Guardian series.

Hand dyed wool felted over cheesecloth with inlay of moss and leaves.

Prince of the Wood by ~AncientGrove. The suggester wrote, "I really like the mixed media in this piece; combining the wool (hand-dyed, no less) with a layer of actual moss and leaves just serves to make this piece all the more natural. Put it on the right actor and give him a crown to go with it, and it's as if the woods have come to life." ( Suggested by Glomper and Featured by Kitten-of-Woe )

Nice cloak, assuming it's a cloak. I've seen it called a dress and coat so far so why not cloak too? How big is it?
