Rose Fairy by Ironshod Rose Fairy by Ironshod
This new gothic style fairy is based around a theme of roses and thorns. Beauty and pain. The fairy is draw to the beauty of the flowers. Like a drug they entice her, but the thorns scratch and her sadness remains.
Or of course you might think it means something entirely different :) That's the great thing about fantasy art, it can mean whatever the viewer wants it to :)

I used a photo of the lovely *faestock as reference when painting the figure. I hope she comes back and posts photos on DA again soon. They have been a great source of inspiration to many people, and are always a pleasure to look through.

I simply love this. The details in the face are fantastic. It's not cartoony like so many fairy pictures are. The blending of colors are beautiful.

Are you Anne Stokes or someone else just asking not saying your the real person? Because I love her art, yes I'm a fan of her/your art. :D

Your art is just so amazing! The anatomy is flawless, the color balances it out, and the shading is absoultely perfect. I also love the color choices.
