I know a bank by SteveDeLaMare I know a bank by SteveDeLaMare
(Wow a DD! I'm very honoured, thank you


Celebrating the 400th year of the death of William Shakespeare (April 23rd 2016)

I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine:
There sleeps Titania sometime of the night,
Lull'd in these flowers with dances and delight;
And there the snake throws her enamell'd skin,
Weed wide enough to wrap a fairy in:

Available as a Commemorative Signed Limited Edition Print
(16.5 x 23.5 inches, Limited Edition of 150)

*ahem*
It's so nice to be appreciated...
So anyhow xD The donkey face - it's a fantastic donkey face. I think the realism of it is very impressive, considering they actually have awkward faces in general. I love the different between the fairies, the different hair colors and what not - but also the interesting translucent element to the wings! I also very much like the little creeping man in the background on the right - it makes me sort of think of Puck (which I don't know if you were going for, but if so, yay?)

Yes it is Puck, watching the spectacle before he goes back to report to Oberon.."My mistress with a monster is in love."

I was like "this looks like it's from Mid Summer Nights Dream". This is beautiful and I love the color palette.

I saw the "ass-head" and instantly, "Midsummer Night's Dream" came to mind.

Wonderful work.

This is my favorite play of all time to be honest. You capture this all so well. Beautiful details, beatiful colors, really loving all the expressions! I love the detail of the light going through the faerie's wing and coming out a rainbow, awesome!
