Thanks to =lazybutt for creating a poem for me to accompany this piece! I only gave him a theme - wishes, new beginnings - and this is his beautiful interpretation of the mood - which I think compliments the piece well, without trying to match:

From the middle of the night
and the clock rung mid—
I heard the tower overhead:
The Girl, The Girl is Free!
- Brennen aka =lazybutt

Dedicated to *zoesobel since she's the pink diva!

Thanks also to =memod for his honest critiques to help me along.. and *LongStock for her beautiful stock photo for me to draw from!

Stats:
-Referenced Sugar World 3
-Looked at various photographs of tree bark to get an idea before I painted that part
-Rest was done from my head.

I created one brush for this project, for the tree bark, based on a splotchy watercolor painting I did in high school.
Rest was handpainted with a round hardedge brush, varying opacities and pixel sizes. Mostly 1px, 100%.

This is the full size of the painting - Fairy, mushroom, grass, flower, leaves, vines, the little mushroom monster, and most of the tree is painted as pixel art.
Submitted to the Genesis Art Collection Project for #Digitalmedia.

The Journal CSS Template featuring the fairy is located here.

I'm a little partial - fairies and mushrooms are two of my favorite things, lol! But, even so, this piece is magnificent

I believe that mushroom is edible, but I am not sure. Is this a fly agaric?
