It has long since been my opinion that if butterflies and moths are caterpillars and worms when they first come into this world; then it stands to reason that winged creatures such as faeries would also have some sort of metamorphosis to go through as well.  I mean to say...they aren't quite human and they aren't exactly bugs either...so I suppose they would have their own way of changing from an infant into a full-grown faerie.  That is why you see the caterpillar clothing on this little guy... There was nothing easy about these leaves.       I like things too look as realistic as possible, which can be difficult in Photoshop.  It's kind of hard to see at first, but this little guy has a bit of camouflage going on.  Just like any small bug-type creature he needs to protect himself from prey. I really love the look of watercolor...but my talent starts at sketching and ends before watercolors.  I find that I make far too many mistakes, and watercolor is very unforgiving.  Photoshop, however, gives plenty of room for mistakes and hundreds of corrections.  So, as I work in Photo Shop it is important to me that I get an effect that is as close to watercolor as possible For more details on this project, please see my website:  www.fromhere2daydreams.com
