This is the background for a character concept study I am doing for deviantART. The character is a forest spirit or a faery, representing the Amanita mushroom known as the "Death Angel," one of the most poisonous mushrooms in the world. The theme of the piece, dictated by deviantART's "ConceptWorld" group, is "Beautiful but Deadly." Amanita will be an elegant Deco-style fashion model. Do stay tuned for the character's appearance, but don't consume that mushroom.
