Christmas Fairy (Red & Green)


The first of the colored version, "red and green", of the "Christmas Fairy" is finished.  It's nice to finally get around to doing a festive holiday-theme fantasy work.  It's lighthearted and cheerful and just pretty with no deep meanings to go do research for. ^^; (Refreshing!)  Anyhow, I gave my "red and green" fairy a nice earthy brunette and brown eyes -- I think she's lovely with warmth radiating all around her.

Next, I'm going to do a "blue and silver" version with platinum blonde hair for the girl.  I'm guessing that this one will be a more ethereal, otherworldly look.  I hope it doesn't get 'too cold' in its look and feel.

  2. Thank you!! ^_^ Not too many artists have done the candy cane stockings this way (They do the horizontal stripes in red and white...) and I definitely wanted the 'candy cane' look for her. XD
