IF (Illustration Friday) 6/27/14, the topic was Beard. I had a hard time with this one, so I did some research and brainstorming as to how I could adapt the topic and make it something I would enjoy working, while still relating to the original subject. At some point I came across imagery that depicted the Green Man, who was represented as a disembodied head with a leafy or gnarled branch-like beard. I used these images as a reference point, and drew up my own sketch which is what is depicted here. I'm not completely satisfied with the image, but I'm glad I kept it simple this week, as sometimes I can go easily over board with these projects. The image is entirely digital, done in Painter.
