WOT -the Green Man by ReddEra WOT -the Green Man by ReddEra
EDIT: I added flowers and butterflies. Did not add the scar though, will later. It is odd that the scar is not in his official description. That's how I missed it.

Someshta, also known as the Green Man, was the last of the Nym. He was set to guard the Eye of the World for the Dragon Reborn.

I never had a clear mental image of him. This was the closest I could get.

I will be posting cards of my choice to post for teasers.
These are three from the Wheel of Time card deck that I am making.

The watermark is just in case I end up using this in an official deck.
let me know what you all think.

This is pretty good! I've never had a clear image of the Green Man as well, but you've captured him as close to what Robert Jordan was trying to get at in the books =)

This is wonderful. I imagine it's what Rand may have seen in Rhuiden when the Nym walked the fields as the Ogier and Aiel sang.

I always envisioned him being much larger, more "muscular" if I can use that term for a plant creature still composed of leaves and the like, just larger..... I don't know, we all see things different anyway, esp like you said he was hard to picture.

Anyway, another very good piece as always! :-D

Sure, that's a valid interpretation... but I'd have thought it a little different, although like you said, it is hard to picture exactly.

A beautiful piece indeed - I always liked his character especially when we see him again during Rand's trip back through his ancestors memories in Rhuidean in The Shadow Rising. I had trouble with the imagining him as well and finally settled on the "Treeman" characters in Gamesworkshops "Warhammer" game. Really do love this piece! :)

Huh?! I can't believe I can't remember. I use to have all the books but when I split with my ex he took all my books! So, I only have the last two with Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson, New Spring, and Cross roads of Twilight...I believe that's what its called. He took all my Drizzt books too. ;p I'll have to grab a new one and re-read it. I know most of the story off by heart. My brain just needs a jump start. lol. I thoroughly enjoy your art! I really love this series and you do the characters a great justice when you draw them!! :iconhugheartplz:

He's the one who guarded Valeres Horn and those stuff they found : )

I've always pictured him more like a three, like the ents (or what they are called from LotR), probably just because I read those books first, and I've seen those videos : P
Realy nice done though : )

Oh okay! That helps more! Now I know what book that is...I'll be able to find him better.

And I can see what you mean about the Ents. They are wicked characters and you made a perfect reference in that regard to bring the Nym to life. I really loved the LotR's series too. Amazing. Everyone is so obsessed with Twilight...but LotR and WoT series are really thee best series ever. Twilight doesn't come close. My mom loves it. She's obsessed with Edward. He creeps me out I wouldn't want a guy that basically stalks me and is so up my rear I can't breathe. lol. I love to read. Sorry for rambling! ;p

Hehe, I agree with you. Twilight is so damn overrated! Wish they made some epick videos about the books to be honest!

Yes!! It's so awesome that you agree! It's hard to find people that aren't so madly obsessed with those stupid movies! I even think Stephanie Meyers is getting old too. When I see a book that has her name on it in big letters and then the actual author in little print...I get irritated. It's like the authors need her endorsement to make their books worth while?! The comments say if you loved Stephanie Meyers books you'll love so and so's book. And I end up not getting the book for that very reason.
