The Only Light Here... by ShePaintsWithBlood The Only Light Here... by ShePaintsWithBlood
Falls From My Face.

I think I only left that title because it was so pathetic it made me laugh.
This has been done for awhile, just had to erase a smudge by the eye area (and the Knote here has no eyes, the droplets just fall from its face) Sorry for more Knotes, this is a good ref to how their fronts and feet look though. Not all of them turn into trees at the tail end however.
I just left the watermark on this time without the text. Hopefully that causes me no trouble but I doubt it will.

Time: About five hours?
Tools: Acrylic on canvas, thus the awful scan.
Reference: None.

Knotes this piece and the blood are copyright© ShePaintsWithBlood, Aria (me) :blackrose:

Out of all the Knotes, I think this one is my favorite. I absolutely love the concept, and the use of color in this is wonderful. :heart:

This is lovely. :heart: I like the weird, swampy type feel the beast has.

I really like the concept and colors in this one:) Is the creature crying? Anyhow, simple and very beautiful piece:)

This was wonderfully executed! The picture looks so fluid and well-done. Is it supposed to be a nature spirit?

Thank you very much!

Knotes kind of actually embody a number of things. This one might have come from a chopped down forest or perhaps a forest polluted by the bodies of dead children. Usually they come from tragic circumstances and then bring "peace" or some kind of good thing to the area they choose to inhabit. Although they are not often the most chipper of people to meet. :blackrose:

Naturally! :hug:

Hmmmm...so they're like guardian spirits or protector gods? They do, based off of your description, remind me of some deities I've read about.
