Hi everyone, I present you my first serious project of 2006: a small fairy irritated. It is a personal work to review my technique in general. I received quite a lot of critics lately which made me ask questions on some points (sharpness of detail, positions of the body, the colorizations) because I became more and more tempted by the speed-painting, and I passed less within time on my projects.
For the subject, I investigate the "cheesy-fantasy" ( I love this expression ) with humor because I find this caricatural and sympatique universe as a genre of universal soup of the imagination which misses cruelly spices with the ages. I did not find story which Would characterize why the small fairy is irritated, but I found that good-looking and intérressant diagrammatically (I investigate my style through this type of faces).
At the technical level, it is the almost homogeneous mixture (50 % - 50 %) between photoshop and to painter. Since I have the two I often worked with the one or with the other one.
But for this drawing, I wanted to use the best of Painter for the natural painting and the best of the retouch of colours with photoshop. The original is a rather big file, foreseen to make big printings.
