Peachy People

The following collection of digital collages were an odd set that came about when I was having a partial peach craving, or more specifically a desire to smell peaches during October. 

Nouveau inspiration of pretty ladies with their forms displayed partially inspired the first collage.

Each peach person for the first and last illustration were made using selections of a peach image as texture, using a quickly drawn form sketch as a guide for shaping the pieces.
From this black and white sketch, to using it as a guide for texture placement (right). 
Ms. Peach

A plump and cheery peach lady sitting in the peach tree. She's kind of meant to look like a wingless fairy or some sort of small being who lives and hides among the peaches. The top two were made to look like a sheer shawl wrapped around her top and bottom, with slight variations between them.

The bottom two are displays of two subtly different bikini bottoms. Personally, the less green covering the peach color, the better she shows up on an already green background.
Peach Spirit

This particular collage reminded me of Aeris from the Mora story, specifically because of the leafy hair style and jungle garb entirely made from greenery. 

This little peach spirit watches over every precious ripening peach till it's ready to be plucked or planted.
Peachy People

I used more than peach images to create the third collage of a couple of jungle dwellers doing daily routines. The man warms his hands next to the fire he had just started, and the woman searches for flowers and herbs to pick.

These all can fall into the category of peach people, little forest spirits or fairies.
