The fairy, as she bathes herself in the sweet necter of the flower. Spreading pollen from one flower to the next. This image was a test to see how close I could get to the great Boris Vallejo.

1997 Prismacolor pencils

Boris Vallejo nothing! Never much cared for his work, personally. But this! Wow! I stand in Awe. *Bows in the presence of a master...* I was taken aback at first by the lack of fleshtones, however, they more one looks at it, the more one likes the aesthetic. Keep up the good work! P.S. This is my first comment on anything in Elfwood, even though I've been browsing for several day.

I say you got pretty close.

This is a type of picture Vallejo would do, and it reminds me of Vallejo. But the style of coloring is a bit different. I am quite impressed with it, though...I like the color that you used. It's otherworldly, perfect for this image. I also cannot believe that you did this with primacolors! Wow! The flower is very nice, besides the woman herself. Wonderful job!

I was thinking the same thing as some others when I first saw this, Boris Vallejo! I agre ethe coloring method is quite different, but the style is reminiscent. Great work!
