Flying Trilobite Fossil III



Oil on shale, pencil on bristol and some digital painting with Photoshop and an Intuos 3. Copyright Glendon Mellow 2009.

You can see some making of posts and this image as my 2009 blog banner at my blog, The Flying Trilobite.

It was trundling toward some crinoids when it was tragically covered in mud and fossilized. Normally I have painted these with bat wings: how do the insect wings compare?

while I do like the skeletal fossil with bat wings, I truly love this insect-winged version. And yeah, it makes me think of fairies. Cool fairies. Not sissy fairies. Love it. oxo
