Balance of Nature by HereticOfDune Balance of Nature by HereticOfDune
Felt like trying something different. Kind of reminds me of some old faerie book I would read when I was little.
Basically Fluttershy has got the animals taken care of and Treebeard is doing his thing. No references of any kind while drawing so the Treebeard is my take on the character.

Got the scroll texture from here:[link]

Edit: Unmodified sketch: [link]

pippin: what happened to the entwives?
treebeard: we lost them
merry: o I'm sorry for your loss.
treebeard: no, we lost them! one day they just up and left. have you heard any stories of trees moving anywhere near the shire?
pippin: *remembers the old forest at the edge of the shire* ... can't say I have

and now I just realized I'm making a fool of myself with that comment by being completely off the wall random, so I'm gonna make this the actual comment post.
amazing work as always. your take on treebeard is rather unique, and he actually looks like a sapient tree instead of just a face strapped onto a treetrunk. fluttershy looks amazing, but her facial structure looks rather reptilian

No problem. My Bob Marley music may have temporarily leaked into the part of my brain responsible for drawing.
