Hello all!

Working on a series of fairy illustrations, so I thought I would post a sketch or two.

Touch-ups and coloring are in store for these three, after which they will truly pop. They will be featured on numerous print products and clothing items.

Those are quite nice. But they do look a little chubby.

Yeah, they do look a bit husky. Maybe that's what you were going for making it look like baby fat to make them look more childlike. If not, I'd make them a tad slimmer.

Yes, the intent is a baby fat/cutesy look. These are meant primarily for female audiences, who appreciate fuller figures in depictions of women and girls.

There is nothing wrong with a chubby girl. I approve of all three.

Chubby is different than fat/obese. However, I suppose most audiences would expect a slim pixie figure when they hear "fairy". That's the modern mindset for you.

Great illustrations. :smallcool:

I like them, and I urge you to ignore all the "slimmers".

Hey, if I ever get my custom-made colouring book going, may I use these line drawings for it?

Thank you. I shall do so. Women already have a hard enough time with body image.

And No, these are not available for reuse. They are for sales items, for printed products and the like. However if you would like to hire my services, please contact me via my website in the links below.

Boo. Fair deuce.
And as it'd be a home-printed colouring book for handing out to my cousins at Christmas, I don't think I'll be getting professional commissions for it, thanks :smalltongue:

Then I must be a female inside. Those are the hottest fairy's ive seen online in a long while! WOOO for full figured!

The line art is nice and clean, the hominid portions are good. The top two are leaning back slightly, which makes sense for the wings. the bottom one is standing ruler straight, which makes no sense for a winged being. but thats my only nitpick, and its a small one. Poppa likee!

Hmm, I like these fairies! Usually they are drawn in the "starving waif" image.

Just think of them as fairies who date hobbits. Good food, good friends.

Hey, if you don't already have a name for this series of fairies, I have one for you. Sylvan Svelte!

Well, fairies aren't supposed to be human, and they do have an insectile influence at least a fair bit of the time, so it does make sense for them to be depicted in certain interpretations times as rather angular.

As for these, about the only thing I have to say is that the first fairy has a mismatched level of thickness to her thighs. Her right (and our left) thigh seems to be almost twice as pudgy as her left thigh, which just seems unbalanced, so I'd recommend reexamining that if it hasn't already been caught in the touch-up process.
