ROUND #158 :: The GREEN FAIRYDESCRIPTION
The GREEN FAIRY
This one has been requested a few times, so here you are. The personification of absinthe, often referred to as "The Green Fairy".
Illicit, mysterious, and often thought of as an aphrodisiac and narcotic (both of which probably aren't true), the Green Fairy was a symbol for artists around the turn of the century.
Let's see your own interpretations. Keep in mind you don't have to do this in any specific way - If you don't want to glamorise drinking, feel free to make her the villain in the piece. Think she's treated unfairly? Make her the hero.
Just keep in mind she is Absinthe Personified, so you will want to tie in elements into your drawing to make that clear.
Please double check posting guidelines!
ACCEPTANCE TO POLL WILL BE BASED ON THREE CRITERIA:
1: DID THE ARTIST FOLLOW THE BRIEF? (allowance for creative takes will be made).
2: IS THE PIECE ARTISTICALLY SOUND? (Is the illustration "finished?" - did the artist pay attention to anatomy, perspective, other fundamentals?).
3: IS THIS ILLUSTRATION THE BEST ONE?
SUBMITTING YOUR ENTRY:
1: You must submit ONE full sized image.
2: Make sure your name and CHOW # are EASILY READABLE on your entry.
3: Use the Standard format (Below);
PLACE THE IMAGE IN A FRAME WITH YOUR NAME/TOPIC
SAVE YOUR FILE IN THE FOLLOWING FORMAT:
THE REST IS EASY:
1: No comments before poll is set. They WILL be deleted with utmost malice and petty grumbling.
2: Sit back and enjoy the show. BYOPC (Bring your own popcorn)
3: Good luck to all.
Please review these helpful reminders if you have not done so already.
