The story sounds wonderful and if you ever write it down, I will be happy to read it. I love dragons (I'm actually currently illustrati...



I will not be often on DA in the future. You can find me on Instagram and Art Station if you need to reach me.
Instead of doing a sketch every day as I did last year, this time I’m working on a full-color painting. I’m also struggling with the Cintiq Companion that is not cooperating. 😅 There is a terrific lag as I work in Ps CS5. Just this took over 4h. 🤞🏻 It holds until the end.

This painting features a Russian inspired Leafy Seadragon Mermaid.

Size: 18” x 24” at 300 ppi
The second artwork in Every Girl Is A Princess Project.

Cinderella will be about forgiveness. This one is inspired by Meghan Markle, 20s, Mucha, Art Deco, and Art Nouveau.

Watercolor, ink, and gold leaf on hot-pressed watercolour paper. Size 12” x 16”.
MerMay2017 Softcover Art
I’m working on publishing the 2nd Edition of my MerMay2017 Sketchbook. This one will be 8.5 x 11 inches in trim size. It’s 76 pages long. It contains The Littlest Mermaid drawing and a blurb about each character. There is also plenty of white space for your own sketches on each spread. Finally, you can remove the pages and frame the illustrations in 8 x 10 standard frames.

I love a multi-purpose book. 😊


artofMilica's Profile Picture
Mili Fay
Artist | Professional | Varied
Hello! Hello!

I'm Mili Fay and I'm a recovering perfectionist. I love illustration and portraiture. I'm a huge fan of fantasy 🦄, and my greatest inspirations are Monet, Walt Disney Classics, Drew Struzan, Maria Pascual, Stephen Silver, Peter De Seve, and Claire Wendling.

Join Mili Fay Art Fan Club for contest, free art, books, and to stay in touch.

I trained as a classical animator at Sheridan College (2005), then decided to continue as a portrait painter (I sold my first portrait at 13) and a freelance illustrator/publisher when animation went digital. 😫

In 2011 I created Mili Fay Art, because I have this idea that I can save the world with art projects. 🤓 Now, I'm mainly writing and illustrating my own stories. I like to create a variety of art and I choose my style and tools based on the project. I love traditional work, but since getting a Cintiq Companion I'm beginning to enjoy digital painting. 😱 I love drawing characters. Do not expect to see architecture and machines... unless they are necessary to the character's story.

I'm currently working on an illustrated fantasy series Warriors of Virtue, about: a reluctant princess, her cousin, and sister who join with elemental spirits to prevent a war with the dragon people; and a hermit dragon-prince who is forced to rejoin Ardanian society and reevaluate his convictions.

You can find out all about me, the special projects, and the awards I won at

❤️ THANK YOU ❤️ for all the Favourites, Llamas, etc. Sadly, I'm too busy to respond to all your generous gifts individually. However, if you leave a comment or send me a question I will try to answer it ASAP. Sometimes, I'm not on DA for weeks, so if you need to reach me the best way is through Facebook (Mili Fay Art not my personal page) and Instagram (

My commission rate is US$30-50/h (it depends on the ownership rights), portraits are US$50/h and are private for all my customers (the ones you see in my portfolio were painted as gifts). For an idea to what that works out to in terms of finished paintings, check out Mili Fay Art Etsy Shop. Feel free to query me. You may be lucky to find me between projects.

Hi! Do you take request?
artofMilica Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2018  Professional General Artist
Hi! I usually have a contest on Instagram. The first person to get through wins. However, at the moment I'm working on a fairy-tale project. I'll likely return to the superhero/villain contest in September or October.
