Basajaun - The Teacher or the Man of the Forest

I’m looking to join in with this challenge

Ever since I watched the Baztan trilogy I love the idea of a yeti/big foot/sasquatch who protects people in the forest and teaching humans how to herd and forge weapons I’m using this idea to look at doing the archetype of the teacher/man of the wood/man of the forest.

I’ve drawn a picture and am wanting to do an uber stylised version similar to the art of Johannes Helgeson (who I love)

I’ve drawn a basic idea except this has human hands in the end I wanna use koala hands cos they look real weird

Look how bloody weird that is

Much love


Just done the blockout so much more to do

much love

Quicky update done a really rough cloth/equipment blockout


Made some changes to the head !

Thought of making his left arm a tree prosthetic with rocks, trying to keep away from metal only want to use it sparingly on the model, as I want the metal to be hexagonal pieces of metal

Done most of the body now
