Just another forest fae by metasilk
Just another forest fae
My husband brought home some very absorbent paper. Turns out this paper is terrible for watercolor but not too bad for chalk or pastel or colored pencil. It's quite white and has some tooth and can handle some pressure. So I stayed up way too late last night just trying it out.

I'm pleased with the trees and the background lighting (though not so much the angle consistency). I think I like the skin tones too, though I know there's room to improve. Other things that I would do differently next time are the glow and the wings (though the wings really stumped me; I need to use references next time for a more plausible angle).

I never had my art on the wall of a coffee shop b4

Little art, big wall. I forgot that I hadn't framed one, so might add it later.



I put up "Winter Wizard", a sketch of a frog, "Unexpected", "Bombardier", "Coffee, Coffee, Everywhere and Not A Drop To Drink", "Stone Window", "Snow Fleas", and "Have Frog, Will Travel". "Wren Voyage" lost its hanging thing, and I ran out of frames, so "Voina", "Love Is Love", and a few others aren't up after all. Didn't finish the mermaid one yet and decided I just don't like "Birthday Candles" enough. (It was fine when it was just ink...) ...

Most is for sale; prices are posted at the bakery or email me.

Wanted to thank you for your comment one the whiny person's post. It's like...yes, seriously. Not everyone has the MONEY to buy stuff whenever they feel like it. That girl's post really ticked me off; it came across as very self-righteous and hoity-toity for lack of a better term. :blush:

Your reply gave me some hope that not everyone sees things moneywise.

Well, hey, thank you! ... I dunno what else to say. I wanted to give respect to encourage respect, but lay out the considerations people might be missing, knowing the reply-ee wasn't the only person who could read things. OK, I admit, there could have been some off-screen expostulating as I tried to figure out *what* to say... ~wry grin~

Here's to some unlooked-for success for us both, eh?
