Queen Mab by bluefooted Queen Mab by bluefooted
Colored and done! The first watercolor I've attempted in a while - and I'm rusty at it ;)

is the name "Mab" a reference to something? cos I feel like I've read about a Queen Mab recently...

This is beautifully done. It reminds me of Yoshitaka Amanao from Final Fantasy fame. I have to ask, what is the story behind the piece?

This should be in a book somewhere. She's so proud and aloof (typical fairy), that the natural beauty of the raven, and the raven guy I suppose, pale in comparison. Just what a queen should be.

MAB! You witch

I really like how mab is looking out- she's got her sights set on something you can't see (in the distance).
Poor guy, he's so broken below her.

I love her dress and the feathers around her waist and in the wings. Yet my favorite part is the tree. The big one she's reclining on is full of character. It really makes the picture. Great job with everything.

This is truly wonderful! You've done a magnificent job with the watercolours. I positvely love it. The subject matter isn't bad, either. You've done a great job personifying Mab and... His name escapes me, but it starts with an F or something? Either way, great job.

Perfect! Exactly how I imagine her, although, for some reason I always see her wearing purple....

But the guy is great, I love his wings!
