Faery Kiss by arwenart
Mixed media for this. Ink, markers, colored pencils, and paint. I loved so very very much working on this. Really dig the colors. The border looks so strait in real life, and no matter what I do, how many times I scan it or rotate the thing in photoshop, it still looks crooked to me. Maybe I'm walking crooked in real life, and it's just as crooked there. LOL
I've been asked a lot how I got things to look like they are behind the wing or how I got them to be visible through the wing. Easy as can be. The pearls, for example, were painted after I colored the wing. When they dried I blended the colored pencil of the wing over them. Works like magic. All you need are Q-tips.
