Monarch Fairy

Prompt: Elizabethan fairy
prompted by: Nicole Cadet, during Sketch Fest #46 (January, 2014)

This is a finished version of a sketch!

For the prompt "Elizabethan Fairy". Drawn in dark purple ink with coloured pencils on paper. I wanted to take on this prompt because I thought of some of the costumes in the Thumbelina 1994 cartoon I loved as a kid. The original paper drawing for sale measures approximately 6.75 x 8.25 with plenty of white space to crop in a more standard frame size. Available on Etsy.


Nicole Cadet says: This came out so pretty, so much cleaner (lines and colour) than I expected from the original sketch (I expected rough washed of colours as I've not seen your art before)! It feels so delicate! Gorgeous work ~ Reply?

     bytheoak replied to this: Thank you! I used the smallest nib I own to get the fine details. Glad you like it :)
