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.
