Night Shade by MisticUnicorn Night Shade by MisticUnicorn

----------------------------
The shade blinked at the bright glow that had invaded her dark solitude. She swatted with a clawed hand, but the light flew out of reach glowing even brighter. The shade grabbed once more and the light was suddenly gone. She slowly opened her hands and stared in wonder at the tiny figure crouching on her palm. The thing seemed fearless as it smiled brightly at her, and for the first time the shade felt something she had never felt before... she felt... joy.

This is a contest entry :)

The figures were drawn in pencil and then painted digitally using stock images as inspiration.

This is quite amazingly beautiful with the complimentary colors of the yellow & the blue.
Their expressions, reactions & the little lights of pixie dust is quite enchanting. This MUST go in ur art book sug! :hug: =D

Thanks :D It should make it in, I'll have to see how it works when I get the formatting all done.

Welcomes. =D It really deserves to get into your wonderful art book,
I know that it will take a year or longer to get it done. =D :hug:

Any ideas on how to do the formatting if I ever get around to doing
an art book of my artwork? I like the same things as you do...well
if you include my interest in Mythological beings, Ghosts, Gargoyles,
Fairies, Elves, History, Mermaids & Angels.
