This went wrong somewhere by hellcorpceo This went wrong somewhere by hellcorpceo
I painted this on livestream, and it STARTED OUT as a totally serious picture of a faerie king. Then *Bailiwick began insisting that owls lived inside his bark crown, and, well, this happened.

~Nhyra and ~lacklusterXX share blame as well, for encouraging me.

I regret nothing.

You. are my newest inspiration! I love the way you paint. I've been trying to figure out brushes and settings to where I can get this painty effect :heart: I love that it's tree bark he's wearing, and the whole concept is so creative!

Not sure if he's thinking deeply about important matters, or he's trying hard to ignore the fact he has owls on him and posing for you.

I like his facial features! and the overall looking.

I love it. Perfect. It's what you'd expect of a fairy king. He has no patience for the matter at hand, but he's perfectly accepting of those little creatures who don't fear him.

it is still serious. just . . . be-owled. besides, one can imagine various serious explanations for the owls. they could be his faithful minions, or some line of shapeshifter servant that finds owls more convenient because of the bark crown.
