Flower Fairy


I hesitated to post this one because it is a little more tossed-off than the stuff I usually like to share, but I am sick of looking at that Supergirl cover with its predominance of red, blue, and yellow. Superheroes sure seem to like those colors for their little outfits.

This is just a very quick sketch I used to experiment with in Painter and Photoshop. It was drawn in blue pencil quite roughly on printer paper, inked with 0.3 and 0.45 Pigma markers to clean it up, and colored in Painter. I used Photoshop for clean-up, overall adjustments, and to create the background design.

That's all for now.

Very luminous. I love the fades of different colors throughout her body. I wish I could figure out how to do that.

I need to do some more experimenting with Painter, I think. Your quick sketch and coloring job is nicely inspirational. :)

I love it when you do this kind of work. I love all your work, but when you do fairy tale type stuff, It's stunning! great image. I love your latest fantasy covers too. Wonderful! Are you inspired by Edmund Dulac? He is my favorite artist of all time.

Your superhero covers always look wonderful, but I do prefer your "tales and legends" illustrations more. I love the colors of this little one.
