unfinished greenman Picture

For a while a few years ago, I was really into the mythological figure of the greenman, and I did several pieces incorporating the theme. This is one of those pieces I did back then and never got around to finishing. I was going to add more vines and leaves on his torso, as well as a background, and something coming out of his extended hand, perhaps a flame or something. I wanted his face to portray sort of a mix of malevolence and good humor. You never know with those fairy types what their true intentions are, at least in the older fairy stories before they got all Disney-fied. I figured I'd go ahead and post it so I added a toned background in PS. Hope you guys like.
