Artwork Description

Mistletoe is a forest guardian (and fellow Capricorn), who enjoys long walks in the woods, snowy days, and seducing women lucky enough to get caught under his antlers. During the rest of the year, his tattoo changes to match the seasons, budding in spring, growing leaves throughout the summer, and shedding them in the fall.

Yes, the roots go down much farther than just his waistband.

Painted in just about a day and half in Painter IX.
I used two of the lovely ~LinzStock's images for reference: Link and Link. http://linzstock.deviantart.com/art/Elven-Taylor-85-60270877 .

He looks chilly. I'd love to warm him up.

Inspired painting, he is like Cernunnos,the ancient european god!

To see him transform would be awsome!

Beautiful! I'd love to see a four seasons sequence, with the tattoo (and setting) changing as you describe.

Art at its best.
