Woodland Fairy Digital Drawing

Hola fairy followers!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything with wings…or on the way to having wings, so here is a drawing that I created quite a while a go. I started to digitally paint it, then I decided I liked it much better in black and white. I’ve edited the drawing slightly on Photoshop, but I shall be adding more detail to it to make it a delightful digital drawing! Instead of typical butterfly wings she shall have wings of a leafy aesthetic.

I have a couple of other drawings to show you but I still don’t have a scanner, alack and alas!

Fairy Tale Art Competition – Voters choice

Hi everyone! A couple of weeks ago I entered a Fairy Tale Art competition on Fineartamerica.com hosted by fairy-tale artist, Philipe Fernandez. I am happy to tell you all that I came in 1st place for the Voters Choice Award! So thank you to everyone who voted for me and put up with my blogs …

Painting in Progress – Fairy!

Hello all, Good morning hope you aren’t too cold in the dastardly Winter weather. Yes, I am being typically British and always complaining about the weather – the frost looks pretty though. As you know if you have read my blog before (if not hello, welcome take a look around) a lot of my art …

Hello Fairy Followers!

I haven’t updated for a while – sorry about that – I have been busy being a Father Christmas like soul making babygrows and cushions then send them off to their new home. I didn’t really have anything new to put on here so today I have a treat for you all. Although, if you follow me on facebook  www.facebook.com/pages/Graces-Creations/221906364510343 (there’s the link there if you don’t :P) you will have already seen it. I have a new fairy on the way so here is the initial sketch for you;

ImageHere is also the beginning of it being coloured;

…naturally it’ll probably look completely different when completed but as usual I’ll do a ‘painting in progress’ report as I go. “Report” sounds completely boring…they are quite interesting (Promise!) I actually like the sketchiness of the first picture, I think it’d make a good graphic design for a T-shirt or bag, so I’ll be sure to keep that version of it and have an experiment with it as a design. Oh isn’t being an artist fun?

At the moment I have also started doing a course in graphic design and web design which has taken up a lot of my time, but hopefully when I complete it I’d be able to make a fantastic fantasy fairy website and lots of fairy motifs as well. We shall see!

Anyway, have a lovely day and please tell me if you’ve seen a partridge in a pear tree and please take a picture of it.

Until next time Fairy Followers!

(I really am quite strange)

Hello, My painting isn’t finished just yet but I’m just going to share some painting in progress photos with you. As you can see there is so much more to add to it. It’s quite bright, it hurts my eyes a little staring at it for quite a while, I should probably sort that out. …

Fairies, Ducklings and Penguins

Hello alll! I haven’t updated in a while…or shamelessly self promoted as some might say! Well, it’s September now and I’ve been busy designing some Christmas cards and give life to new fairies (obviously!) So first things first here is the latest addition to the fairy family, I call her the Fairy Queen. She looks quite …

Quick Update!

Quick Update!

Hello Fairy Followers! I’ll be away for about 2 weeks from Monday so it’ll be a bit quiet from myself! I’ll probably come back with many sketches to share.    By the way if you fancy looking at any of my older art I have a deviant art account (I actually remembered my password) apparently …

Good Morning fairy folks! Today I’d like to introduce you to Rose my lovely new fairy friend.  To create this artwork I first sketched  with the help of this stock photos that can be found on deviantart http://darkdreamfae.deviantart.com/#/d35fywo. I think that drawing traditionally and painting digitally is one of my favourite ways to work these days. Although, …
