|Sugarspice the Autumn color fairy|
This illustration dates back to about 2009. Mediums used-colored Prismacolor pencils, and chalk pastels. The colored pencil was used for the leaf, fairy, and surrounding border; while the chalk pastel was used for the wings and sky.
My favorite parts of this illustration is the outfit and the wings. The wings are oddly radiant, and all at once soft with the combo of chalk pastel and colored pencil; mixing the chalk colors in patches helped it look like those air brushed fairy wings you can purchase for costume.
Note, if you look closely you'll see the fairy has solid eye color, no pupil. I left it that way feeling it fit her plant base nature better, her eyes a bright green like the chlorophyll of plants.
As I mentioned in the Autumn Based Sketches post, this illustration matches up with the style I drew Grace, the Autumn leaf fairy, no doubt a friend of Sugarspice. Here's image to Grace for style comparison-Grace, the Autumn Leaf Fairy
