Iris Faerie by PuppyGirl Iris Faerie by PuppyGirl
FINALLY! Done with this commission piece. Sheesh. This took way longer than it should have. It's coloured pencils, acrylic, watercolour, and airbrush. I suck with airbrush so I keep it to a minimum. For some reason, when I saved it to jpg, the colours degraded and became less vibrant. It looks way more washed out than the original.

Anyway, I have no idea who the model is. Some girl off of a gothic usenet group I think. I wish I did know because I think she is really pretty. I had a lot of artistic freedom with this. A guy wanted me to paint an iris faerie for his wife for her birthday. He told me on Friday and I have laboured a good part of the weekend. Yeah, it don't look like it. I had some trouble with her wings.

oh my! this is literally fantastic. i really like the way you draw the eyes and her jewellery also the colors are so vibrant and hazardously orgasmic for the eyes! improving the sky with sun would make this terrific, i recommend you to work on the wings' black parts also, cause they looks a little 2d for the rest. :thumbsup:

It's 11x14, I think. Glad you like it! That girl really is pretty. I would love to find out how to get in touch with her. Would love more pix of her. I had to slam this out in 3 days. Which, for you, is an abominably long time but I work so sloooow.

She's got real attitude, heh. I love the color blending on the wings, actually, it makes them look like gossamer.

Thank you, my dear!! You always leave the sweetest comments!! Yeah, the people I did the piece for loved it. And here is the cool thing. I get to keep the original. They only wanted it to use for her online character in some role playing game. She was playing a punk rock iris faerie. I offered to send them the original but they said that they only needed a large copy of the file to print off and to use on her character sheet. So that's fine by me. Maybe I will auction it.

Thanks sweetie! You really make my day with all the nice comments!! The hair was actually the fun part to draw!! I know it doesn't look like it but there are 12 shades of blue and purple mixed into it. I just tried to blend it a bit.

You best stop it afore I get a big head. I actually had some trouble with the wings. I wanted them to be like the wings that NeNe Thomas draws but they ended up looking like puffy baloon things so I just threw on a few stripey bits in blue and then smeared them with lavender and it turned out okay. It was a happy accident. Heh. The hair was kinda fun. I like to make streaks of different colour.

Love ya sweetie!
