Artwork Description

The Treewalker is so named for its ability to climb trees. Treewalkers often band together in order to graft artificial branches into the sides of massive tree trunks. They grow the branches in ascending spiral patterns so they can reach the trunk's upper limbs, allowing them to travel from tree to tree.

I like this - the creature is very inventive, and seems quite at home in his environment!

Thanks for your kind words, Alice. I made a small maquette of the creature out of a modeling compound called Sculpy. Then I took photos of the sculpture from a bunch of different angles in order to figure out the shading.
