    Lovely theme... I still have to think about my own interpretation of "faeries" but this definitely will be fun *__*
    Thanks to term break, I'll definitely will have time to participate! (Has to develope her digital painting skills).

    @Joey-b: Good start. But at the moment, she looks more like a beauty queen than the wonderful and dangerous queen of the faeries
    @Gothique: This sounds exiting and it definitely will be a lot of work.

    @Daestwen: Is it allowed to add Oberon somewhere?

    Lunchtime roughs. Going traditional, fairy wise that is...

    Edit01: Playing with colour using texture overlays, Just an experiment but it gets a watercoloury feel. I'll probably go with the one on the left. Using a texture Bluefooted pointed me toward ages ago and a few of my own.

    Edit02: Well, it looks like I'm working this one up for now. Progress of roughing the linework. I'll probably do another tidy up before doing the colour very much similar to the test earlier but with more detail.

    Edit03: Still working on the line... Changed her proportions slightly. She's making fairies! It might over-complicate things though... not decided yet.

    Removed the last edit, to put in this one. Line almost finished. Just tidying up now. Still not sure about the little fairies, but I'll leave them in for now. I wish I'd started this in pencil now rather than digital.

    Edit04: A bit of colour... sort of. Not really representative of how it will end up, but I'm experimenting with a watercolour look.

    Edit05: Final

    Oooooh ;P Brilliant topic choice - I'm in on this one too

    Great idea's so far...Like yours Posh, both really beautiful, the one on the left looks more coniving and Titania-like than the one on the right...but I love the pose of the one on the right. can't wait to see more.

    The temptation is just too strong. Guess I'm spending my week drawing fairy queens.

    Here are my first sketches. I'm really not happy with her wings yet D:
    Chow 146 :: Queen Titania

    And a really bad scan of the sketchbook page I made to develope the character:
    Chow 146 :: Queen Titania
    I like the face on the top a lot. The body sketches where made to find a queen-like pose for the final illustration but they doesn't look royal enough...

    I tried to go a not really traditional with the design. She only wears wood, spider webs and bird feathers. The crown should remind of a snail-shell and I think she'll get dragonfly wings.

    @Espenbuy: Reminds me a little bit on Holly Short from Artemis Fowl.
    @Poshspice: Beautiful sketches. Really traditional. I like the left one a little bit more.
    @Joey-b: Awesome hair and a really evil face.

    Awesome! Though I like your mummified Gnome in the box best.



    I think I will give this one a shot as well. I don't usually draw fairies, but I had an idea flash a couple minutes ago... we'll see if I can pull it off.
    Sketches to come later... so try to contain your excitement as long as possible. LOL!

    Here's my first entry ever.
    This is what I've come up with so far. I'll polish it up in PS later.

    Edit - is it okey to post this in my sketchbook or do I have to wait until the challenge is over?

    You're perfectly welcome to post your wips and stuff and even your final in your sketchbook, well before the round is over. I do. :]
