I was very confident to give this work 5 stars on both vision and originality. The moment I saw this I was sure of it. I don't think I've ever seen a fascinating personification of a mushroom such as this (besides Toad from Super Mario--because that's all I can think of!). You chose a common part of nature as a subject and fabricated it into something so extraordinary.
The imagination you have is incredible. You created a natural yet surreal world; something out of a fairytale book. I'm looking at the mushroom character and I see a story, yet untold (which is why your title fits well). You've given the mushroom such a captivating and peaceful visage which makes me appreciate everything around her/him. Everything harmonizes; from the varied, glowing, spheric embers to the silent, purple and hazey world around it.
What's also great about this is not only do I see one world, but two contrasting worlds...uniting in tranquility: the city and the forest. You had a nice idea in including the city in the background--it accentuated your subject's verdant surroundings even more.
I think this is a charming and exquisite piece of work. It was beautifully, intricately well done with some powerful creativity and I enjoyed it!
I love the colors you've used here. It's a brilliant piece. She reminds me of Toad from Mario, but not annoying, or weird, or short. On second thought really the toadstool head is the only similarity : P
