Devious Garlic Fairy by jane-beata Devious Garlic Fairy by jane-beata
It's a Garlic Fairy! Isn't she cute? This is a portrait of ~Tactical-Genius that was made as a part of my DA project WEEKLY DEVIANT PORTRAITURE FREE OF CHARGE - hopefully she doesn't mind a little fantasy styling experiment! It's done in watercolor, Ecoline & Copic multiliner on 230g paper (21 x 21 cm / 8.3 x 8.3 ").

The depth of this piece is stunning. All of the layers you were able to create in the "hair" were so separate and yet seem to fit together very well. The two-tone style really draws attention to the brilliance of the blue and the warmth of her skin.

It has a quirky, offbeat character, and she seems to thrive in that, from the knowing look in her eyes. The "hair" almost looks like an onion, which is intriguing and creates a really funky shape for the painting to be modeled around.

The large, swooping lines are fantastic, controlled enough to not be sloppy but free enough to not be restricting to the blue beneath. Some of the puzzle-piece-shapes in the background are distracting because the lines are thick, but that's simply my preference as an observer. Different people will appreciate different elements of this piece.

My favourite part of the piece has to be the grin, though. The way that the cheeks pull up and the laugh lines are etched there permanently by your hand... the everlastingness of her weirdly perfect smile.

Oh my goodness! I.. I really don't know what to say! I'm so- I ADORE this!
The color is absolutely stunning and the fantasy theme is PERFECT! Really; SPOT ON! <3
I don't think I can convey in words how warm this made my heart feel. Like being in love all over again~. And I really can't explain how much the fantasy design really does connect to my heart.. And the shades of blue are just so magically stupendous! Beautiful.

I can't thank you enough, Jane. Thank you, thank you!

I saw on that journal page that you might be able to ship the finished pieces to the individuals, so long as they pay for the shipping? Might you be willing to part with it? I would absolutely love to have your work on my wall~. ^^

Blue isn't just your favorite color but it's also mine, I think the connection was made subconsciously (: I'm happy to make someone happy and really glad you like my little experiment (:

Of course, if you want the original, it's yours, note me your address (:
