Fairy Song by cosmosue Fairy Song by cosmosue
Please Full View a few detail shots > [link]

I debated what category to put this in because the trees in the very very back were rendered first and painted over. Everything else is painted, no "stamp" brushes used - I love brushes don't get me wrong! But wanted to do a piece w/out them. The trees closer to the front are painted by hand, all the grass, flowers, etc etc.

Ref (and very tiny amount of over-painting for the hand positions) for the lovely fairy is again *Lisajen-stock :heart:

This one is for all my friends & and the staff over at ~DMchat

*Edit - Print File was updated* Sorry if this comes through again.

This is definitely one of my favourite fantasy art pieces!  The wings are so graceful and the flowers against the dark background look lit up!  Beautiful!

It is probably a company that has purchased a license through my agent =)

I love the color scheme. It's restful and mysterious:)
LittleMissGloomy Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
This is very beautiful. The pose makes me feel like I can actually hear her playing and the colours, all the pretty blues and dark green make it feel so very magical. The sparkles on the grass are probably my favourite part, I love anything sparkly.

Would you mind if I used just the fairy, nothing else, for a photo manipulation, I looked through all the stock photos and well...None of them look very...fairy like...according to my Amy Brown sense of fairys anyways. Lol. Thought I would ask your permission first, the only place it will be used is here on DA, and printed once, on regular paper, to put in my portfolio (I am in the application process of a Graphic Design job right now)

Thank you for your time. =)
cosmosue Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Actually I cant grant permission to use my work for your work, then it would not really be your work in your portfolio...the link to the stock is in the description, so you can choose a photo of theirs and repaint it or photomanip it =)
PhantomShadows Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Alright. Well thanks anyways. =)
