This one was inspired partly by the spruce trees that i get to admire on my way to the gym. i tried to draw them without looking much for reference and more trying to transmit the feeling of my experience. Mainly I wanted to do a counter part to the Midwinter Rite, another hooded character, only older, wise and cunning. This would be dark a piece. The schemata or schemas are simplified constructions of the mind about reality and thats is what the trees and branches represent here, not quite realistic although they did take quite a long time to fashion before i was happy with them. The simplified shape of the hooded figure is also repeated in the trees, making the apparent connection to nature.

Additional notes:
There may be some blurriness in the preview image and the effect gets emphasized because of the technique, but it does not extend to the actual file. That being said, to achieve a particular look I do work in small resolution which is native to the MS Paint. In order to meet the size requirements, which will allow for larger prints for example, the pixel dimensions have been scaled up for these limited editions. If you have purchased an edition and would like the small image or have any questions, please contact me via email: info@mikkolyytinen.com

Wonderful concept. Drawing the trees from your experience of them gives them a new dimension of 'reality.' 'Tree' becomes almost elemental as the hooded character becomes 'Tree.' ⚖️⚖️🙏⚖️⚖️
