“I Told You There Were Fairies, Connor!”
Posted 4 years ago and submitted by Mariya Prytula | Share link: http://illo.cc/59735


With spring on our heels, I wanted to revisit an idea which came to me during Inktober. While hiking in Colorado, I noticed a lovely lantern in front of a big boulder, which seemed like a perfect place for fairies to live. Their friends soon joined for a party, and it wasn’t long until neighborhood kids went to check out all the hullabaloo. Only the resident owl wasn’t too pleased!

I’ve enjoyed making this piece so much that I’ve put together a step-by-step for your viewing pleasure, which you can find at the link below.

Happy wanderings!

Mariya has the exceptional ability to make fantasy more vivid and vibrant. I love the subtle texture and the outrageous detail and realism, as well as the simplicity of it.
