Pencil drawing given a sepia tone in PS. A3 sized (29.7x42 cms.). Over 50 hours work involved and I suspect there are still some bits that need more work.

CREDITS FOR REFERENCE PICS USED TO AID THIS DRAWING
Thank you to Stuart Dunlop for allowing me to use two of his photos of dog roses [link]
And thank you to Michael Herling of Garten Databank for granting permission for me to use a photo of a dog rose (used three times in the drawing). [link]
Link to the emails granting permission from both Stuart Dunlop and Michael Herling. [link]
The ladies/fairies in this drawing are based upon the images of three models. All the images were magazine tears from the same magazine (POP, Spring/Summer issue 2005).
The model with the raised arms is Shannon Click and the photographer of the original image is Lachlan Bailey.
Kim Noorda is the model for each of the two fairies; I've greatly diverted from these images in my drawing and there's little resemblance to the original pics. Original photos taken by Willy Vanderpierre.
The final face with the wispy hair iis based upon an unnamed model from a gucci ad. Sorry that I can't provide further information here. Link to WIP and those source ref pics. [link]

I hope I've remembered everything!
