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.

Gorgeous work, as usual!
My love of this piece is that I see that the fairy and the rose are one and the same. She is beautiful and draws you to her, but her thorned wings and heart can draw pain.

Bonjour,
J'aime tellement votre travail, les couleurs sont resplendissantes, les  effets d'arrière plan sont superbe.
J'adore tout, tout, tout , les roses ainsi que les épines et la jeune fille qui sera blessée d'une manière ou
d'une autre.
Merci de votre partage
Amitié
MorikaneBye

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

Very Inspiring
Captivating, Hypnotic and Mesmerizing
I find to feel and look through her eyes feel her look back and through into me,
Your a Pure Born Natural Anne
and in this example it certainly shows you were certainly in the zone of your own element and true potential,
I have only just discovered your art,
And although maybe not all might be of my personal cup of preference from a critical perception so to speak from which I mean not to be at all,
This certainly one of my favorites
From which there are still yet quite a few ,
