Birth of the Faeries by jezebel Birth of the Faeries by jezebel
A new piece that I've been working on (off an on) since yesterday morning. I think I'm finally calling it finished... though I imagine I'll come back later and find all kinds of stuff I don't like. Hehehe.

Odd, you never really see a female satyr, do you?

Because in greek mythology, a female satyr is a nymph.

Well you got me there ;-) I dunno, I think I may be stuck in that mindset that a nymph has to be all foresty, if you get me, like she has to have the green skin and the ability to blend into the treeline. I need to expand my frame of reference ;-)

Somehow I missed this. I think the best thing is that it is very consistent. Some of your other pieces relied heavily on reference and once you tried to paint from your imagination it seemed a little off in parts (or that's how it appeared).

Of course I always have a crit but it's not so bad. I think her back is a little too straight, which makes it seem kind of stiff. Of course, it could also appear though she just perked up to look at the fairy emerging. I dunno though, it just seems with her leg pulled up to her chest a slumping posture would be more normal.

Anyway, I love the bark texture and the light shining off the grass and the little dew drops on the spider web. :D

Yeah, I definitely agree with everything you said. :D I do often have a problem blending my references seamlessly into the entire composition at times. And yeah, her back is too straight - in an earlier version it had more curve but I ended up painting over it a bit as I worked on the bg some more, and I never fixed it D:

I love the concept of fairies being born like this. The way you drew the fauna's legs are also quite amazing. I love the texture. And the look on her face...the expression. Beautiful piece.

Wow I really love it, the textures are so wonderful... the bark is so rough! And I really like how you shaped the faun/satyre, most people make them really human, they can't move away from our own anatomy but you took it a step further with her legs and her ears and horns! I love it!

Also the detail of the waterfall up high in the sky is awesome!

the concept is great but the rendering is less...
dont misunderstand me, i used to study your tutorials for a long time and you are one of my fav artists!
but here everything looks so flat. the corners are painted as if this was a collage. besides, there is something smooth around the character's silhouette.. it's kinda disturbing.

however, the face and fire things look really nice.
all in all an outstanding painting.

jezebel Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2007
I think the thing you're seeing around the character's figure is a faint glow. I dunno if it's really "disturbing" but it probably isn't done as well as it could be :)

As for the collage thing, I'm really not sure what you mean by that. Can you explain?

:iconblood-brush:
blood-brush Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2007
i mean each part of the painting is like applied with glue to the canvas. the character, sitting on the trunk as a front layer, then the tree, behind the tree the 3 mountains. i cant sense any space between these "layers"

but maybe you wanted it the way it is, so nvm.
do you have msn? D:D
Reply
:iconjezebel:
jezebel Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2007
Yeah, I can see what you mean by that. I plan on going back and playing up the details in the foreground - I think that will help tie that area together a bit. I'm not very good at painting areas of grass so it ends up looking a little weird when I try. The separation between the foreground and the distant background is definitely intentional, as she's supposed to be sort of on a slope.

And yes. I do. ^_^

I love the imaginnation here :) Her expression is perfect and the glow is so magical.
Details are important like the waterfall pointed out above, and those lil mushroom - yay.

I think I'm seeing what i wanna see - but it looks like a figure on th cliff above the falls...

Great work. The details are excellent. Her expression appears very accurate. And the waterfall being blown by the wind looks great.
