mindblowing background! whoah. Colored pencils & any sort of decent background = no as far as my work goes. Yay for you, nice job.

WOW!!! *blinks eyes in amazement* That's...wow! And I'll just leave it at that.

I agree that this is a very cool concept. I also like the background your painstaking work shows. I adore the wings. I also like the star in the moon idea.

A fantastic Piece! The flowers are really beautiful, and i must agree with some of the above comments, your color-choice for the flowers was superb. You have a true knack for anatomy as well, fantastically done! (Excellent work on teh SHAPE of the wings also. that's often quite difficult.)

I have to say, I love this Moth Fairy better than most conventional fairies... Do you have prints available of it?

Well, fairy is a general term... And in some circles, elves and goblins are included under that name, as in: 'the fairy folk'... (that division makes it much more interesting) so, your new kind of fairy is great... I sure wouldnt say "oh its only one of those"... And all of the fairy pictures ive seen were actualy not based on butterflies and little girls... Almost every single one i actualy bothered to look at was based more on "nastier" insects, i actualy based some of my fairy folk on hummingbirds (no feathers).

I really admire your technique (espceially with colored pencil).. and you have a great understanding for how light shines, reflects etc.

This is an awesome concept. Well-deserved Mod's Choice.

I really do like the moth idea. Her body is a really nice shape, and I think you did fine on her face. I just love the little feelers. It seems to me that moths are like your plain cousin. They’re nice, but no one ever pays attention to them. Stupid Swedish super model cousin...

Congradulations for having the patience to do something like this.
The veins in the wings look very nice.
As for taking the time with the face, perhaps leave it for a while if you get frustrated and come back to it some other time?
My sketchbook is full of sketches and not enough finished drawings though... *laughs*
