This is my entry for the Fairy Contest [link]
Model used :iconeledhwen-stock: [link]

Over all I'm pretty happy with the way it came out but I'm not so happy with the face though, I think it should have been closer to the model. Also the whole thing might be a bit too green.

I also wanted to participate in this contest (but didn't make it, like always...) so I know the photo you used as reference.
I think you did a really good job making a fairy out of her! She wanted to see her connection to nature, so the branch- and leaf-like wings and the horns are a great addition! The wings really look amazing!:)
Also like how you used her pose to let her read a book. I'm a fan of your extremely clean colorings, this must always take you a lot of time.:D
And I really love the combination of red and green in this one.:heart:

Thank you. :)
I really wanted to do something different with the wings, so I'm pretty happy with them.
I've never thought of my drawing as being clean. ^^;

Wings concept is really creative.

You're welcome
Don't worry about the face, it's not easy to reproduce exactly a face of a real person in a drawing ! And in fact, I have a blue eye to the right and a brown to the left :giggle: In any case, it's a wonderful drawing that you have made here and I think that the colours are perfect even if you think that there is too green. Cheers for this beautiful picture and thanks a lot for your participation ! :love: And I have to say that the clothes and wings are very original, you have a lot of imagination :)

I think I would have done it better if I was doing a larger drawing, it came out quite small. I deliberetly chose to make the eyes green, partly to fit in with the theme and also since I couldn't tell what your's were from the photo.
Thank you very much. :hug:
