CED - Fairy Universe

When I think of cosmos it brings to mind other universes. I love fairies and elves. This is The Sleeping Fairy. My daughter said she looks dead. The pony tailed hair and red background idea is from one of my favorite Spiderwick Chronicles Cover. My original drawing is very different from this. As you can see from my sketchbook I drew her twice. I decided to use the first one. Also notice the hair is different the arm position is different. I guess everything is

So I'm sitting here thinking, "wow, gorgeous" as I read what you had written. I couldn't help but laugh out loud when I read your daughter's comment because there is no way I thought she looked dead. Her wings are awesome, I like that they aren't identical in colour.

Oh no, not dead--contemplative! :)

She came out beautifully, I love the vibrant wings and the detail in the braided hair.
