Character I invented and designed for the Dark Crystal character design contest in 2017.
Full description:


Some say he is as old as the forest. Others claim it’s much older and it was he who planted it in the first place. When questioned on the subject, he just smiles mysteriously and changes the subject: “If you make a left turn behind that oak, you will find delicious wild berries.” Beyond doubt he is a caring, if small, protector of the forest. He is also an avid collector of everything the forest gives. He uses his long fingers to pick out interesting items from the forest floor, examines it carefully and hides in the basket.
