Autumn Rite by bonegoddess Autumn Rite by bonegoddess
I don't draw faeries often...and I'm not sure if I've ever drawn boy-faeries before...

this pictures combines all of my favorite things: the moon, rocks, moss, spirals, oak trees, snails, ivy, sunsets, ravens, hares, sticks, antlers, and badgers.

He looks incredible and has shades of Cernunos about him. I love the woodsy colour of him and the way he blends and melds with the forest behind him.

I love this, it gives of a really Celtic vibe for some reason. You are amazing.

an amazingly wonderful piece! I love the stuff of Faerie and you definitely bring it to the table here! The overall green tone really lends itself to the mood of the piece :D

Kind of reminds me of Pan from Pan's Labyrinth. Magnifcent!

The reds and greens make for great contrast and an interesting lighting concept.

I like the green glowyness on his horns and hands. And I especially like the composition of this. Is so pretty. There aren't enough boy-faerie drawings out there. Not good ones. Yay!
VulpineVampiress Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Woots!! Your designs always continue to stun me...the faerie is just rawkin, and yet I love how natural everything is. I mean, everything is still so earthly and natural but there is a lot of mysticism to it. You truly do have an eye for colour and balance ^.^

Much love on this one! *offers you a pink bow-tied badger* lol

I like the red accents and green highlights, great use of compliments.

I have never seen a fae like that before, and I love it, gosh darn it! Faeries are always these pretty, perfect little child-models, but this guy is a funky little hybrid of a million things, but he's still really pretty. I think I like the ravens best, you just got their movements so perfect. The little squatting guy, trying to decide if he should fly over to his mate, and the other girl (yeah I decided the sexes, so what?) is so curious about the necklace thingers. The composition is so safe and comfortable, it just feels like a nice, happy place to be. Thanks for sharing this with us :D

I just sat here playing "spot the snail"....HIGHLIGHTS FLASHBACK.

Seriously, tho -- awesome stuff! I especially love the textures and color of the leaves and sky

I'm digging the straneg combination of elements, and the concentration on that frogman's face. ; ) I have a thing for amphibious fae since I did :thumb39609581: for a magazine a while back.

sorry, that was;
demonicaljakkal Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2007
This is really amazing, the way you coloured it, it looks so soft and all those pretty details.
arkansasmezzo Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2007
The webbed feet are a fantastic detail - I'm glad I gave this piece the attention it invited.
ministan Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2007
Wow - that's a beautiful piece. Gorgeous colors and layout. It's very reminiscient of Charles Vess's work.
voya Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2007  Professional General Artist
Yesss! Very nice. The symmetry here is great, but it also feels natural. Great character and your colors are so rich. Awesome work.

Wow.. this is really neat!
kaleadora Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh, how beautiful! Such a unique faery, I love his design. The hares are maybe my favorite part, especially the one on the right looking all mesmerized. And d'aww, that little snail is precious. :) Lovely colors, as well, I like the red and green theme accented by the blue sky and golden hill.
Javadoodle Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
Just... wow. :drool:
maxwell-heza Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2007
Wonderfull, how delightfully reminiscent of Froud

Amazing piece :)
Arianna-Rumakzbostwo Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2007
the cleverly placed bowl was a nice touch XD
Tizrak Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2007
Badgers! Badgers! We don't need no steenking badgers ... well, actually ... The badger fits in nicely. Sorry, couldn't resist the movie quote. It's a wonderful picture! :)
DevinRichard Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2007
Nice pic!
ming85 Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2007
beautiful, it shows that you liked drawing this and all your favourite things. There are so many colours, but remains calm and balanced. i like the way the faerie has the 'unnatural' colours, like the slight greenish glow. His design is great, don't worry! I really like his tatoo and face, and stubby fingers ofcourse. You are a master of colour, especially on the rock, which looks amazing. And the realistic size of the moon ( i tend to always draw it HUGE) gives it a special atmosphere. Great work!

I like your fetishes and the way the one raven is looking at them. :) And the fairy's frog legs.
gas-eosa Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2007
Amazing! :drool:

Superb :D
Leodragon Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2007
I love how you made the greens really stand out, and the horns are ever so funky ^_^
radymrys Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2007
I think the color scheme fits very well with this, for some reason. Love the pose and composition.
JessKat-art Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
For some reason my favorite thing about this pic is the hare that looks like it's about to jump. Great coloring.
morkalavin Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2007
