this was pretty much the only idea i had for the contest. a treant with a newborn. the way i imagine it the treants out live even the longest lived of elves. however, newborn treants are rare even for elves to see or the world would be practically overrun by treants.
first sketch of the main subject of my contest entry. sorry for having no sort of background yet. i really need to get a move on even though i'm sure i've got hardly a chance.
