Faerie February by katiedesousa Faerie February by katiedesousa
Hello everyone~ I promised to have something done by the end of the month, and I very nearly kept my promise! It didn't seem appropriate to me to upload non-halloween art on halloween, so I waited a day (cough-it-had-nothing to-do-with-me-screwing-up-2-paintings-and-taking-forever-to-churn-out-something-decent-cough)

This particular piece was inspired by the wonderful work of Brian Froud, I just recently bought his World of Faerie and I'm sooooo in love with it, I absolutely had to paint a faerie of my own. :)

This is for *jisuk's 2008 Calendar project, there are some other really great artists involved and all the proceeds will go to charity! Go here for more info.

Another good thing came out of this painting as well, I found some tools in Painter X that I can almost control properly :D They include the Acrylics Captured Bristle, and a couple Blenders (just add water, and a grainy blender that added some lovely textures).

Painter X, Photoshop CS3, Wacom Intuos3

OOOOOOOOOwwwww, very lovely. The delicate frills at he top of her bodice is so pretty. Her hair is very well done. It's wonderful how she seems like a dreamy manifestation.

A most interesting young lady. She's looking at someone with love in her eyes. She seems to be wearing her best fairy gown but I get the feeling, if rejected or betrayed, those large lovely eyes would become frightening filled with hate and those slender white arms with the long black nails would become talons dripping with blood. Mess with this girl at your peril.

She's so intensely beautiful, I love her face, the markings around her eyes, and just how -alive- she looks.

I'm also very fond of her petite form. I always imagine fae to be incredibly petite and just sort of ..well... flat for better aerodynamics =)

But this is incredible, you're a great artist :D Now I must check out the rest of your gallery, immediately =)
