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!

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 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'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.

This is really amazing, the way you coloured it, it looks so soft and all those pretty details.

The webbed feet are a fantastic detail - I'm glad I gave this piece the attention it invited.

Wow - that's a beautiful piece. Gorgeous colors and layout. It's very reminiscient of Charles Vess's work.

Yesss! Very nice. The symmetry here is great, but it also feels natural. Great character and your colors are so rich. Awesome work.
