Acorn by SelinaFenech Acorn by SelinaFenech
Another fairly simple fairy portrait. And it's a DUDE!!! Finally drew a male fairy, many thanks to homnoct-stock [link] for the beautiful pose reference. Playing with technique and mediums and colour again.

I love him!  I've actually used him as a character in D&D and he's one of my favorites.  Thank you for the inspiration! 💚

I've been a fan of this piece for ages, and it's only just occurred to me who he looks like; Ben Lee.

Wow..a guy fairy!! Cool!!! I love the colors, and he looks great, but one critique...his right foot/ankle looks odd.

Other than that, it is fantastic! :D
Aredhelsforest Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2006
I recognised him! :) I love the way you made him a fairy, Selina!
nellmckellar Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2006
I've always been a bit frightened in drawing male faeries, as I'm afraid it would look a little crass or a little gay! But you've managed to pull this off perfectly! He looks so masculine and cheeky :) Really love the woodland-esque colour scheme too.
Well, you've given me some confidence and inspiration to give a boy faerie a try- so thanks! :hug:
elvyrus Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2006
Hey! Nice work! It looks believable, and you managed to give him a masculine look with the wings. A lot of times that doesn't work too well, but you've done a great job.

Amazing work, I really like the wings. :nod:
AngelsChilde Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2006   Writer
Wow, fantastic! I adore the wings *want a pair of her own* !!

Nice work. His wings are really marvelous. I especially love how you did his skin. I only have two minor critiques. Hs hand sizes don't look like they belong on the arms. (i.e. the left looks a little too large and the right looks a little too small) Also, I think the left foot looks a little rubbery and sinewy. Other than that this is still a great piece.
emochick-siobhan Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2006
beautiful, as always (and what do mean 'simple'? do you know how long it would take me to do ANY part of that?)

*DROOLS* He's Smexy! Wonderful work Sel! Good to see another guy creep into your collection!
IndigoEve Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2006
I love how saturated his skin looks. I know you've probably been asked a million times over how you did the skin tones and how you make it so vibrant. It sounds as though you've been layering it over and over again in watercolor and then adding in the highlights with...white acrylic? Am I right? I've never been able to get watercolor to look as saturated as I want it to be like in oil and acrylic paintings, it's always seemed impossible. But I've never been able to really have the guts and do oil and acrylic paintings either, so this would be my own doing.

wow awesome!! :D you definately needa do more guy fairies xP like, a girl and a guy fairy dancin' together over water x3 sounds kinda weird, but i bet it'd look nice ^^
Laiyla Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2006  Professional General Artist
This is simply stuning! You did a good jobon the proportions and the shading

Selina - just by playing with other techniques you improved even more - its INCREDIBLE - love it! Your style is WONDERFUL
Mydian Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2006
The one foot seems too small, or oddly positioned. Maybe the legs are too short too? But otherwise, he's gorgeous!!
songbird24 Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2006
wow...i saw this on your website, but it still looks great~!

Malczewska Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2006
he is sweeet :)
Teenzo Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2006
I love the colors and the pose. Everything is really well done except there is something wrong with the right foot; the ankle connects funny and the arch lost its shape. Otherwise, I want one!

Isynia-Artessa Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2006  Professional Digital Artist
Beautiful Piece. I would love to see this fleshed out more.....more of a background, to see how he spends his days. The tatters on his pants are very convincing. I love little elements of texture in paintings. And the vibrant colors you use really pop. Well done. What exactly were you wanting to experiment with? You mention that you are playing with technique and mediums. What was different in this piece for you?
SelinaFenech Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2006  Professional General Artist
This peice is a lot darker/more saturated compared to my older watercolours I used to do. I'm leaving a lot less white of the page showing through, instead doing heavier all over washes to take the overall darkness of the artwork down so I can add highlights in pure white opaque paint. Not sure if I like the result, have been trying it a bit lately though, it's something I will probably continue to use but in a slightly more subdued way in continuity!

SelinaFenech Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2006  Professional General Artist
I mean simple in that it is just a fairy, no background elements, only one figure, no story behind it, just a fairy :p
