Self-explanatory. A shaman named Moon Cougar, whose girlfriend, Sunhorse, sold me some sweetgrass.

Hello from the critique club

An interesting image that contributes to the challenge

What an amazing character! I like the portrait itself, a really interesting looking character whose pose also adds to the impact. The snake is rather macabre but adds another layer of interest telling us some more about his roots together with your title it reveals all. I can see you must have deliberately gone for a high-key effect, I'm not really sure why, to be honest the blown out background and important elements such as the bend of the snake ruins the overall effect for me. I would rather the whole image was toned down and the skin tones made to look more natural. Thanks for an interesting entry Susan

Not much of a portrait person, but this is just supurb, love the angle is at and the composition, makes me want to be there to see what he is up too.

I like how he is colour coordinated, beard and all. Fascinating.
