The grasses and bugs are so real that they lend great credibility to the dragonfly fairy. Does she just like the feel of stiff grasses or is she making a fort to play it?

The precarious, narrow castle and the strangely stony hills in the background are far less real, like they belong to the world of the fairy more than the familiar trappings of nature.

well she is in fact endevouring to hide behind the grasses, she is shy but also just a tiny bit curious. The pond is intended to be a haven of tranquility which is home to a host of wild creatures and a shelter from the more harsh and barren landscape behind. The castle symbolises the power and tyranny of mankind......

Yeah, that's cool. I like the towering and unnnatural qualities of the castle. It's imposing and impractical and spear-like.

:D I do like to draw impractical buildings and other things :D
