|Autumn Wind Fairy|
The fairy should have a name, I think maybe Ember, the fairy which brings fire to the leaves and carries that burnt leaf scent through the air as a sign of Autumn. Sort of matches the whole flowy red hair and orange red breeze which she lightly walks on. I find it cute for a last minute idea.
On the left is original version of Ember, the burning leaf fairy. This version is improperly aligned, but you can't tell unless you get in close. I almost like her shade in color better in original than in new, but again, can't remember how I pulled it off. To the right is the base image when no tweaks had been made beyond alignment. Again, digital programs saved the day when it comes to bringing life to a picture. Mediums used were predominately watercolor pencils, used for the sky, wind, and hair. The faerie's skin, and dress were done with Prismacolor pencils, and her wings were colored with chalk pastels with hints of colored pencil.
