After I sculpted Isabel (the masquerade ball fairy) I realized that I'm pulling away from what I wanted to do originally, and that is to make a more primal/tribal/natural depiction of faeries. Don't get me wrong, I love Isabel and she was loads of fun to puff up with finery and feathers, but she's really not how I see the Fae. So, in effort to escape the slippery slope to Disney's Tinkerbell style, I ran back to the deep forest as fast as my little legs would carry me.
|I wish I knew how to take good night setting pictures. This blurry one is the best I could snap, but you get the idea of how she glows.|
Her eyes only have pinpricks of black in them for pupils - otherwise they are luminescent green. There's something quiet and mysterious about her, something light with a touch of dark and it's a good step back towards how I wanted to depict my faeries. :)
