The last one of the pictures for the fairy book. I painted this for my mother-in-law, Erika. My wife InÚs and I made an album-like book with fairy pictures of the young grandchildren of Erika. We first took photos of the children (our niece and our youngest son), then I printed them out and painted the background with water color pencils. At last I merged the two pictures on the computer. The picture shows Anna flying over a field of flowers.

I really like the way you've merged the photos with your artwork, it's worked really well! 2 My one bit of advice would be to have maybe altered the legs a little, the position otherwise seems a little stiff... but overall I'm really impressed!

And the children must have been pleased! 2

WOW!! The picture is beautiful!!!! The little girl is soo cute!
But It is slightly obvious that you took a pic of a girl and merged it with you work. It does look beautiful, But with your talent you have to start trying to draw faces or you will never be able too.

Well, the idea of the "fairybook" was to have a photo album AND a fantasy book for a present to my mother-in-law...
So I decided not to draw the fairies but get photos of her grandchildren and merge them with paintings... and here are the results

I like your picture allot because it reminds me of when I had my own real butterfly.Also how I always wanted to know how it felt to fly like one. I'm sure many little girls have dreamt about what it would be like to be a butterfly.

The legs look very stiff. She looks like Hermione put a leg locker jinx on her. Bend the legs!
