It's the final day of #MarchOfTheFauns ! Time to find out what happened to Wynne the albino #faun .
.
.
STORY:
Princess Wynne lived a quiet and peaceful life within the castle walls for most of her childhood. Her albinism made her skin and eyes sensitive to sunlight, and kept her from venturing far from home. But Wynne didn't mind, she was quite content to live at home with her sisters and her pet owl, Witta, reading books or wandering the gardens by moonlight... But Wynne's peaceful days would soon come to a devastating end. One fateful night her eldest sister, Jacandy, returned from a personal pilgrimage forever changed. She had made a deal with the Rott, promising to trade them Wynne in exchange for a new and powerful magic. Their mother the Queen tried to intervene, but Jacandy cut her down without hesitation. Wynne was dragged out of the throne room wailing in terror as the members of her court were slain around her by the Rotten hoard. Jacandy had her locked away in a gilded cage while she claimed the castle for herself. For years Wynne never left that cage, as the lonely days turned to weeks, and the weeks into months, her constant exposure to the Rott appeared to be taking hold of her too.... or so it seemed. The Rott spreads its poison by rotting the host from the inside out, corrupting their spirit with the flesh soon to follow. Wynne was clearly being transformed, her antlers had become gigantic branches that coiled around her body, her eyes monstrous orbs of light, and her flesh began to erode off her bones... yet her spirit never wavered... For the first time ever, a creature of magic was rotting from the outside in...

STORY
It was common knowledge that Terratoff owed it's liberation from the Rott to both Queen Gloria and to mankind. By rescuing, then recruiting humans enslaved by the Rott, Queen Gloria formed the human vanguard that drove the Rott back into the "Dark Lands". Since humans are not creatures of magic, the magic of the Rott had no effect on them. Together, Gloria and the humans brought about a new age of rebirth known as "The Restoration Age". As her eldest daughter, and an incredible warrior, it was expected that Jacandy would one day inherit Queen Gloria's crown and leadership of the vanguard. But Jacandy never cared much for humans, since they were not creatures of magic, she believed Terratoff was not meant for beings such as they. She resented relying on them to help keep the Rott at bay. The fact that any human could best her at fighting a Rott, no matter how powerful she was, filled her heart with a darkness that slowly grew into hate. She and her mother, the Queen, frequently argued over the role humanity should play in their defense. Jacandy could not trust them with the lives of her people, but Gloria believed in their potential and fealty to the crown. Finally, Jacandy had enough with the endless bickering and set out to find a way to eradicate the Rott...once and for all...no matter the cost.

STORY
During the "Restoration Age" of Terratoff, the Winnow (pure) creatures of the realm lived in relative peace and harmony thanks to Queen Gloria. It was she who turned the tide against the Rotten army, bringing mankind and Winnow together in partnership against the great plague that corrupted magical creatures from within.
.
.
But the peace would not last forever, fate would have Terratoff slip back into darkness yet again... starting with a grave betrayal. .
.
The return of the Rott began on the night Queen Gloria was brutally slain at the threshold of her throne by one of her own daughters. A witness but unable to intervene, Nema's heart broke as her mother's blood was spilled...her sister lost... her family destroyed.
.
.
Swept away by the royal guard, Nema's life was spared that dark night. Though she yet lived, there was no time for her to mourn for her mother, for the shadow had only just begun to spread...From the ramparts she and her soldiers saw the Rotten army marching across the land... coming to take the castle. Their forces far too great to overcome. .
.
To save her people, Nema abandoned the castle and fled under ground into the dark with her followers...where they would wait in hiding while the Rott reclaimed and spoiled the land.
.
.
Though all seemed lost and her soul filled with grief, Nema quietly took on the mantle of the crown, and began to devise a plan to restore the Winnow back into the light. Using her powers over water, she started speaking through puddles in the dark tunnels, hoping to reach someone who could help... even if they had to travel across the realms to find them...

New sketchbook and a last minute faun for #MarchOfTheFauns!

Finally got my West African Giraffe faun sketched out for #marchofthefauns!
West African Giraffes are one of the most endangered subspecies of giraffe with none in captivity and only 400 in the wild, eep!

The only problem with the “desk-page-turner-robot” is that it turns to the next page whenever it finishes reading the page it was on. It’s like when you watch a movie and he text goes by too fast or too slow!

It's a brand new #MarchOfTheFauns #faun #drawing !! Today I decided to remake a piece from my #Terratoff "Unicorn Cult" series. You can read the entire mini series on Patreon.com/Terratoff .
.
This piece is available in my Etsy store (HeatherHitchmanArt)
.
.
STORY:
Every few hundred years or so, a female faun is born with a single twisted horn close to the center of her forehead. These fortunate creatures are often worshiped as goddesses, because it is believed by many that their single deformed antler grants them the powers of the unicorn. These powers include immunity to "the Rott" (a horrific plague that terrorizes their world).
.
.
This goddess rose to power some time after the sacrifice of the blue haired unicorn faun to the Rott. But this goddess was different than the others, not only was she born with a humble heart, but she was also quite clever. She knew that her safety was at risk since there was still much hate for her kind for their claim to "god-hood". The numbers of the cult that worshiped her had dwindled, mostly due to other fauns shaming or harassing any faun that claimed to be a follower. .
.
Before any harm could befall her and her people, she lead her followers into the woods, never to be seen or heard from again. Many believe that they still live and thrive under the protection of real unicorns, who took pity on this poor creature and recognized her humility and love for her faithful and misguided followers.

Happy #MarchOfTheFauns everybody! Today's #faun #drawing is of the glamorous and strong Princess Jacandy!
.
.
STORY:
Gloria, the late Queen of Terratoff, had three daughters. Jacandy was the first born twin from her first pregnancy. Out of the three sisters, Jacandy is the strongest and most serious in temperament.
.
.
Known as "The Sword of the Kingdom" Jacandy is the most powerful and mentally sharp soldier in the land. Her leadership and courage were undeniable from birth, and she quickly found her place training to fight the magical plague of their realm called "The Rott". .
.
All expect her to become a great leader of her majesty's armies, maybe even Queen herself someday. She is the most respected and trusted of the three sisters. She and her raven companion (Beshiltheeni) bring comfort and inspiration to their subjects when they walk the streets. .
.
Jacandy is a determined but somewhat quiet creature. She does not like to waste words, but definitely has a flair for the dramatic when she does have something to say. She doesn't like surprises, but she's always prepared for them. Although she can sometimes appear outwardly cold, Jacandy relishes expressing herself through fashion. She is known for wearing elaborate (but still functional) armor on the field and at court. Her favorite colors are silver and gold. .
.
Being of the metal element, Jacandy's powers include superior strength and resilience. She is able to manipulate the minerals in the earth to cause small local quakes. She can also channel electricity freely through her body and throw lightning bolts at her enemies, though this is very draining on her.
.
.
Jacandy takes comfort knowing that her life is basically already planned out and she can focus on training, but little does she know that her journey is about to lead her down a new and darker path...
