 A fairytale styled illustration. Fairytale imagery is one of my favourite genres but I always imagine it a little darker or gloomy than the Disney depictions of it. Having read The Brothers Grimm fairytales the way they were originally written is probably an influence. I do prefer it this way to the cartoony style anyway. It took quite awhile to paint with a bunch of tiny details around, pretty happy with how it turned out though :).

I looked around alot for some fairytale artists but could find very few. I found one illustrator that specializes fairy art and used the idea of hers to have the image inside a ring, and kind of referenced her toadstools aswell. I did the sketch ages ago though and havnt been able to find that fairy artist again. If anyone knows let me know. :)

:-) Dane ashley goulter replies: "Thanks 2. I did spend quite alot of time on this one and took a bit of a different approach to the usual way I paint. Im very happy with the result. I managed to make myself feel less restricted by my linework and just let go with the pigment. Being so organic I didnt want it to feel tight and mechanical. So much time spent doing lots of little details, it was worth it for the result though. Fairytales, Brothers Grimm, Jim Henson. Whatever I experiment with those are the genres of art I always find myself coming back to. Glad people like this one 2."
