The Caretaker

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Date: februari 2008 Medium: sketch and Adobe Photoshop I have made this picture for a contest on Elftown, I have no idea if I have a shot at it. But in the meanwhile I'm pretty proud of this one. It's the first one I attempted at extern sources of light. Shadowing was cruel, as you can see, you can't see much shadowing. It's because I tried to blend them so it would be subtle. But subtle is a overstatement here I'm afraid. Well. I like the colors, the mouse and the wings. And if you ask, what does a mouse so high in a tree? Then I have to tell you that's not a tree but a bush. So. The caretaker is a fairy who's soul purpose is to take care of nature and animals. They have their little territoriums which they guard. This caretaker is a female who is a little over enthusiastic about her work. The animals get sometimes irritated by her cheery appearance, but they love her nonetheless. So this mouse, normally shy and not liking being touched, let the fairy touch him. ETA: did not win
