Purple fairy

purple fairy

This fairy is a really good image for practising hair and this was coloured when I was just starting to get a handle on how to create highlights. I ought to try it again and see how it turns out with another few months of Copic practise under my belt.

The thing that I really like about this is how the wings turned out: the combination of the light blue-green to violet blending with a solid coat of Wink of Stella of the top gives a really nice effect.
