don’t you just… hate it when you’re drawing a tree and then it turns into a weird lesbian fairytale thing…
ALTERNATE TITLE: YOU MAKE ME MOIST
OK STORY TIME because this concept had a pretty interesting process, actually. my best bud ~blouse
did this really cool illustration where she illustrated her biggest flaws, and i wanted to copy her!! so for the past whatever i've been grappling with this idea of personifying 'possessiveness', since it's one of my biggest flaws (next one will be 'flatulence' (just kidding)). for a while i was stuck on the idea of depicting it as some kinda da vinci-esque male-wolverine hybrid--men are possessive, wolderines are possessive, ya get it--but it always fell flat. and then after looking at whimsical forests (as usual) i started drawing this creepy tree lady and tied the two ideas together. despite being an atypical combination (a woman and a tree??), not only did the concepts mesh well, they told a story--a possessive tree that wants to be watered and nurtured constantly saps the life from all the other stuff in the garden (and the person she's possessive of, too).
i really fell in love with the whole concept and figuring out how to depict a woman and a tree as possessive instead of the usual 'seductive' role, but i'm still pretty disappointed with my illustration skills (or lack thereof, hah).
ANYWAY, apologies for going all arty-deep there. ENJOY!!
