Here are some shots of the progression of the new piece. This will be part of the Enchanted Visions Project and I'll have it on the Etsy shop also as soon as he's done. I've been wanting to do a "Fairy Dude" for quite some time now, this will probably be my first of several. I love the challenge of making a masculine looking fairy, and I'm digging this guys vibe, he's no Tinkerbell.
|I transferred the original sketch onto a sheet of Crescent Hot Press illustration board, then I paint liquid frisket on the areas I want to keep white. I use a cheap throw away brush because that frisket is a mess.|
|The herbs are brewing!|
|Started working greens and earthy shades into the background, when it dries, I peel the frisket off and start adding colored pencil work.|
|I got a lot done so far, but still have a long way to go. His weapon of choice? A bronze bladed Fae crafted dirk. My weapon of choice? Berol Prismacolor Pencils of course!|
I hope you like Crimson Wings so far. I hope to get more done on him this week.
