Fairy brother and sister!
So- these little friends have been in the works for a long, long time. Finally- I have a girl and a boy finished!
Of course I already know I need improvements- I'm a super-perfectionist- their ears don't show thru the mohair! As I was making the wigs I thought to myself, "How did I NOT know the ears wouldn't be long enough, what was I thinking???" I'm very happy with the chubby bellies, feet, and hands. I can't wait to make a few more and try different skin and hair colors. Next project- rainbow-haired centaur girl... no- I swore my next project wouldn't be so cutesy. I'm good at doing cute- and to my dismay that's the thing I'm best at. My art is cute whether I like it or not. I can manage an elegant style, but "edgy," dark, or scary is beyond my abilities. Do not ask me to do abstract.
Anyway- I am looking forward to getting more work done.
