Delicate by Zindy Delicate by Zindy
It was about time to do a new fairy. I wanted to try and go really dark this time with my colour pencils, which seem to be my weak spot with this medium.

I very much enjoyed creating her. It's based on a photo of the lovely Evangeline Lilly. I find her beautiful and delicate, with that natural beauty. I gave her red brown hair though her dark brown is beautiful on her. This drawing was much work and for some reason I found it rather difficult to just do what I felt like on this one. Maybe because I had this perfect image in my head, which I didn't feel I could get down to paper afterall.
My scanner wasn't very nice on the colours, I had to correct them as much as I could in photoshop but still it lacks the life of the colours somehow, like it lost it's warmth.

Thanks for all your lovely comments and faves on the wip, it definitely made me more motivated:

Hi there! your work is absolutely amazing! I'm opening up a hair salon and my theme is all about pixie's and fairys... I was just wondering if I could get your permission to use this amazing picture as the face of my business cards?
