A personal project that took quite long in between everything else, was a really good learning experience, and probably filled my quota of drawing mossy rocks for 2 years in advance. (Not that it means I won't turn around and paint some moar mossy rocks like 3 days down the road. >_>)
Anyhooow. He's meant to be a shapeshifter, currently sporting a form suitable for long happy fluttering around and not a whole lot else - hence the peculiar proportions. The stuff wrinkled around his waist in a horrible mess is quite expensive clothing, and the patterns on the feet and hands are a way of promise to those he's been dealing with that there will be no further shapeshiftery shenanigans going on, as changing would obviously disrupt the markings.
