Done entirely on photoshop. I have no idea how long this took since it was spread out over soooo many sessions over a very long time.
Well, originally I had my Star Fairy picture, which I started to hate within a few months of finishing it. I ignored it after that until several months ago I decided to do another fairy based on her. Through different design phases it changed quite a bit, as these things do, but the original themes remained. Descriptive titles failed me, for fear of being repetative, so I named her instead - the first thing that poped into my head!
Instead of forests, lakes and mountains, this fairy prefers the depths of space, resting on mountain top or drifting asteroids.
