Here again this self published writer dwells into the unknown by trying her hand at photo manipulation. As I love to create fantasy worlds I chose to adapt a tutorial that helped create a fantasy scene using a fairy. I know, I know. One might think that fairies are overused these days. Yet they are also a bit expected in a fantasy & magic world. No harm in creating another right?

Here is the stock photo provided by Faestock at Deviantart as the base. I also used butterfly wings from Jinxmim at the same site as well. The rest of the stock photos are from Pixabay. The model uses her own makeup on her eyes, shoulders, and also on her fingers. Which to be honest was annoying to work with so I ended up painting over those areas. I also removed her floral barrettes to add my own flourish to her hair.

And here is the finished artwork I wanted to share with you all. To save on mobile users bandwidth I didn't upload the full version but instead a medium-sized one. Of course I can be biased here but I think it's very pretty. I love how the light enhances the wings. What I dislike is how the hair falls a bit too strangely on her arm. I need to work on how to airbrush that more properly. Overall it gives an autumn look and feel. Which is great, it's my favorite season.
