Mushroom Elf

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

A tired little elf resting under a mushroom.  I think in the back of my mind as I drew this was a page from my favorite childhood book of poetry illustrated by Gyo Fujikawa: "Up the airy mountain,    Down the rushy glen,We daren't go a-hunting,    For fear of little men.Wee folk, good folk,     Trooping all together;Green jacket, red cap,    And a white owl's feather!..."                                    - first stanza of The Faries by William AllinghamHis feather is red instead of his cap, but I wasn't really trying to illustrate the poem anyway, it was just influential.  The coloring was actually done in Photoshop - my first attempt at coloring anything on the computer.
