Hi Amandar and welcome to the forums!
The story concept for your piece is so great and I like how you have interpreted it. If possible I would like to see more of a connection between the spirits and the tree and they don't feel like the same entity. Also, the lighting in your scene is a little confusing especially with your mixture of styles (although the mix isn't a big issue to me if that's what you want your style to be).
If you balance out your light and shadow a bit better and maybe bump up the sun rays I think it will grow into a great piece.
@rcartwright Thanks for the feedback! I'm really glad that the story came through and the image works.
@mikecañas Thanks for the feedback! I agree with your comments on lighting, that's something I need to work on. When I get some time, I'll go into the original and try to add some more contrast and clean up the lighting.
@hannahmccaffery Thanks for your feedback! I was aiming to add emphasis to the stump with the extra detail, although I might have gone a bit overboard.
@gary-wilkinson Thanks for the feedback! I definitely need to work on my lighting skills... I'm seeing a lot of comments re: a mix of styles, and I understand that might not always work, I'm also not sure if it's something I want to worry about. I've struggled with "what is my style?", trying all sort of different styles and approaches, but I think this might be my style. That doesn't mean that I shouldn't work to refine it though.
All night the fairies dance, leaving almost no trace when the morning comes. That is, except for a magical circle of small mushrooms. .

Hey @amandar nice work! I'm doing folktale week too!
I like you concept here. It’s a nice way to show rebirth. I don’t think i’ve seen the topic handled this way before. Also your piece also falls perfectly to one of the folktale week’s prompt: into the forest.

@amandar I flipping love this Amandar.
The first one has such a friendly, huggable feel to it. I'd like to see what else these lil spirits get up to

Welcome to the forum, this is a lovely piece!
I love the bark texture and the trunk's expression.
