Thistles Faerie by LunaMiel Thistles Faerie by LunaMiel
Wow, this is a bit old, maybe like a month or two. xD;

Just a gaian commission for Thistleluff who ABed an auction I was in. Her request was pretty simple and nice. Just draw a faerie, and use blue, pink and yellow.~ The art was to be used for her wedding website, which can be seen here. <3 [link]

Lineart with Staedtler pigment liner, colors in PSCS1

Why thankyou Chi~ :heart:

Haha, everyone has been so kind as to comment me. I don't know whyyy. ;o;

I'm just in college for graphic design right now. Maybe after I get my degree (or lose my scholarship) lol I'll go to SCAD or another good art college for animation.

As for coloring, I mainly just do my lineart on paper, put it in photoshop and set the layer to multiply and just color with the regular round brush. Try to make a lightsource so the shadows match up alright. For the wings I used select and made a gradient. I hope that helps. ;o;

Please don't kill me, but her arms seem too long, and her legs are a little too short..

I must say though, I love the coloring style, her hair, and her dress! Super cute!

Sweet little faerie. I like the shape of her wings .. if I try to draw nice wings it usually ends up looking like .. uh, I dunno. Different than yours xD
How about adding some fairy dust or something? Just an idea ..

Oooh haha, the commissioner did specify that she wanted amybrownish wings. So... it wasnt all my idea, I like butterfly/insect looking ones personally. <3

I would have added a slight BG or something, but she didnt want one because she was going to edit the actual image into her website. XD

Pretty, shiny colours. 8D Legs look slightly odd to me though. Hard to describe. Sorta like the foot that's closer to us looks like it's farther away or behind. Or something. Still really pretty though. 8D
