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.
