I just loved the idea that "how about picking a feary and put it on a hummingbird... ?" xD Somehow they fit perfectly together x)
Plus, I love faeries :D

They do fit perfectly together. I love that you chose the seemingly most harmless bird as a raider mount. :)

Hehhe, true xD
Actually I love the hummingbirds :D But it is funny that at first I didn't know that it is called as hummingbird and not "kolibri" x) Since we call that little bird like that in my language :D
Plus they look cute ^^ They are the "owner" of the fastest heartbeat in the world ;)
Plus the fastest wing-beat too I think ^^

I love hummingbirds as well; they are such fascinating creatures with very mysterious little lives. Yes, they do have the fastest heart and wing beats. :)

This is great! It really tells a good story.
What medium did you use? pastels?
Reply
:icontanathiel:
Tanathiel Featured By Owner May 1, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
Well :D
The mediums used are the following:
white pastel pencil and pitt pencil
mechanical pencil with a 2B lead

But I have a F.A.Q., that will answer this question perfectly:

Great fantasy work! Love the colored paper u've chosen, it's got great texture & it sets off the whites & pale blues brilliantly! Love the idea of the fairy on the hummingbird. Excellent job with the wings especially!

I got the idea from a pic, where I saw a little humminbird, but in a different angle :D
So, I thouth, why not I should put a fairy on it ? ;)
The paper is really nice I admit :D I use it ever since :floating:

That looks wonderful. I like the background colour of the paper that you use, it really does suit the mood of the piece, and shows off the highlights and shadows nicely. Good job :)

It is a bit small, nearly an A/4 size :D I love to work on these kind of papers :D
I can make highlights and shadows better :aww:

Some artist hate this kind of style though ;)
Anyway, thanks for the comment :D

Nem értem miért van ilyen kevés watchod és favod... Értetlenül állok előtte, hisz (bocs a puritán szóhasználatért) odabasz amit rajzolsz, és elég populáris is. Nem értem... Nagyon jókat rajzolsz.

Szerintem egy kicsit szocializalodj. Jarj oldalakra, favolj ami tetszik, watcholj es commentelj. Szerintem ez a megoldas :)
