Star Fairy


Digital, photoshop 6 wacom.

An older attempt at doing a wallpaper.

An elusive type of fairy, these strange creatures flit from star to star, dancing in their corona. Occasionally they come to rest on high mountain tops, far from the eyes of others.

Another beautiful piece

And here we have another beautiful piece of art I really like this as she looks on at the falling or shooting stars there could be some more glow and sparkle in a few areas maybe 2 or 3 sitting stars. Her wings and of course the falling or shooting stars that would be a very nice addition to this and I like your style for how this is

More glow and shine on some of the stars and such



This one really captivates me! I love the endless stars and how you made the wings almost look like constellations. Really creative stuff! Good job!

Better colours

Unlike the other 2 I've reviewed, I like the colour scheme you've used.

However, I feel it needs something more, a bit more detail like your other ones.

Also, the wings look really messed up, and not symmetrical at all. I know its hard when you've got it at a weird angle, so maybe you should have taken more time over it. However, although their positioning is wrong, they actually have a nice feel to them, with the white outlines.

I'm not too keen on the shooting stars. When I first saw it, I thought the fairy was crossing the road :P

Those wings were a pain! She's sitting at an angle, so I had to have the wings at different angles too because they all go off in different directions (the upper pair fanned out and the lower pair more held together). I started with the wings on one side, copied them then played with the perspectives of the copes for the wings on the other side. Very fiddly. I think the bit that messed up the most for that was that I made her right wing too long (up and down), as we look at it. Stupid wings...

Thanks for the review.

Not your best

A shame that you got a little carried away with the background of this piece - a few too many stars and perhaps a little over eager with the spray can tool. Still, let's not dwell on this too much. Perhaps darken that area down a little and pick out one or two, using a corona effect around them, to make use of the background.

The shooting stars look good, as does the fairy. A nice try to pick out the gossamer like wings that this creature has and a good use of this corona effect. Perhaps using a moon would assist with the lighting effects in this piece?

Ah, such is the over enthusiasm of a gal with a new toy... *sprays stars everywhere*

Thanks for the review.


I love how you have a story line behind most of you pictures it really adds the effect when you're thinking about them. As I said with the other pictures I have reviewed, colour, not so much shading on this one because it's mostly all light and the sparkles.

Only bad thing is the congestion of stars they're all too cramped, maybe some spreading out and bigger and smaller ones.

EchoRun responds:

I suppose most of my pics have a story because that's a big part of how I design things, how I put things together. Gives them a bit more life. :)

Yes, the stars were a work in progress at this point - my recent stuff is much, much better then this! *grumbles at the current lack of a scanner*

Thanks for the review.
