This started as a temp version, but actually I may never finish this one because the snail would never wind up as cute in inks. It's a pencil sketch of a little fairy (whose wings don't yet totally exist) and her pet snail. The snail's collar is made of flowers.

She's mainly naked because I couldn't figure out what clothing to put her in. Plus I wanted to prove to myself that I could draw a human-form body without having to cover up the difficult parts with clothes.

She doesn't yet have a name, but her snail's name is Gnuup (pronounced newp).

Aww!!Its a little pet snail with a faerie! It reminds me of my pet snail Pokey. I really like this picture2

:-) Jenny Rowland replies: "Aww, you have a pet snail? Lucky... I had one, but he, erm, died. Eheh."

Our pet snail was named Molasses. He lived in the bushes in the backyard, and I remember when we brought him in the house and set him on the kitchen table and let him crawl on a can lid (I think that's what it was.) He eventually departed from our habitation, sadly (not sure if "running away from home" is the best term to apply to a snail; similar thing happened with our turtle.)

:-) Jenny Rowland replies: ""Molasses". Ouch. Must've been bad for the poor thing's self-esteem. ;P"

Oooooo, I love her and her snail and I want to be her. And she needs a name, rawr. I want to see the other faerie, too.. Email it to me!!! pan@pixie.net! Raaaawr.

:-) Jenny Rowland replies: "Nooo. Only one person got to see it, and person didn't like it, so now *nobody* gets to see it. ;P It was different from the usual ones anyway, the only thing the same was the style of the wings..."

Would you mind if I put this on my snail tour? It's just so cute. Please mail me of you want it removed.

:-) Jenny Rowland replies: ""Mind"? Heckno, I love the idea! Tour! Whee!

Kinda makes me wish I'd gotten around to finishing her, though. Heh."

its so cute! I love the snail! and the fairy is so cool
(This is completely off subject, well, maybe not, but is the snail dust snail ever gonna have a name?)

:-) Jenny Rowland replies: "Nope. At first I did want to give him a name, but I've gotten used to him not having one, so now he never will. 10

Othersnail has a name! Be happy with that!"

constructive critism: I think the right foot might look a lil' better if it was slanted outward a lil' more.

Your drawing is good, but her head is to small. Not much but enough to disturb the peace.

:-) Jenny Rowland replies: "Really? I thought it was moreso a problem with the legs... bah, evil-looking legs."
