Ancient Protector by AncientSources Ancient Protector by AncientSources
Ancient Protector in Persuit
Conte and White-out on Paper (17"x22")

He protects the forest.

I love trees, so moving trees are the next natural step. I didn't have any reference for this except for his hands, I looked at my own.
