Blue Heron Fairy

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Kathleen Hardy

I wanted to do a piece with a Native American fairy in the image of a blue heron. Originally I was going to create her with blue-grey skin, but as the idea coalesced more in my head, I decided to give her large blue-grey wings and normal skin tone. I went back and forth a bit trying to decide on the medium, but eventually went with color pencil on dark grey-green paper. This is one of the most detailed backgrounds I've ever done in color pencil.
