Assignment: Make something out of wood. (Any kind will do; twigs, sticks, toothpicks, etc)
Materials: Sticks, reeds and pinecones I gathered on my walk around Greenlake, a few strips of Tshirt (I figured all-cotton material qualified), hot glue to keep his parts from crumbling, a little wine for coloring, PS for touchup.
Inspiration: I'd started out trying to make something that'd be disturbing to come upon on a lonely walk in the woods, but I think he turned out to be more happy wood sprite than Blair Witch. So I added the disgusting strips of material to give him a little more gravitas and hung him from the nearest thorn branch.
