Druidic Prophet initial base mesh.
About all I had time for this weekend. Will likely adjust some flow a bit more before putting in Mudbox or... The design is taking into account another influence, the 'Gaiking' character from old school anime like Mazinger-Z, and Giant Robo, albeit more organic in this creature. I'll need to add asymmetry and foliage to the branches. Considering putting in a splash of Egyptian details if I can't find enough Elvish reference. Started looking at some Brian Froud, the artist behind The Dark Crystal. The far right shows a loose sketch, but it has pretty much the broad 'look and feel' I was looking for, worked out. I'm thinking a lot of details will be embellished in the sculpt phase.
