I really like this little fairy. I have copyrighted her and named her Lia. She will be in a storybook of mine in the future- so do not take her. She is my intellectual property. This is my first attempt at a steampunk type piece and I hope you like it, although I think I could have put more detail in. She reminds me of Amelia Earhart. I was pressed for time though so maybe I'll revisit this piece later on.
This fairy is just one way to use this technique- I challenge you to find another way to use a transparent element in your own drawings! If you were wondering what the thing I used for outlines was it is a japanese brush pen. you can get them at most art stores.
