My Fairy Story…The Beginning

For my post this month I’ve produced some samples of the type of art work I’d like to use for the fairy book I am going to write. I’d like to make the book mainly illustration with short story bits to explain each illustration. I don’t have a complete story yet, but I have many of the characters created and drawn already.

For the last couple of months I’ve been drawing the same scene and using different mediums to see which one I should continue to produce for the entire book. I was hoping I could get a little help from my friends and get your opinions. You’ll notice that not every scene is exactly the same. I was also experimenting with different ways to make the final scene for the bubble fairy. And before you say he doesn’t have wings he can’t be a fairy, this is a different kind of fairy book and you’ll see in the end why I call him the bubble fairy. Who knows, maybe I’ll add wings in the end.

So here they are the 4 scenes in the mediums I thought worked best. Let me know which illustration you think would be best in my fairy book.

  1. Hi Robin! Looks like we both put fairies on our blogs today. *L*
    These drawings are wonderful!!! I think it depends on what look you are going for as to which medium you choose. Also it depends on which medium you are most comfortable with using. I like them all but I think kids would like the most colourful the best. Great job!!!!

    • Thanks Trish, I’m pretty comfortable with all the mediums I used but like acrylics the best. I agree for children colour is great, but I have a fairy book that has a lot of drawings with no colour and I think they show every bit as well as the colour. I’m still not quite sure what age group I’m looking at for this but I’m leaning toward 8yrs and up. I’d like it to be very versatile in respect to the audience. I’ll have to check out your fairy stuff now.

  2. Thx for your post, I really enjoy your blog. Long time lurker, first time commenter, you know the drill. I tried to share this one time before, I don’t think it posted correctly…hopefully it will this time! is my website.
