Fairies

Too much frolicking can lead to troubled friendships. Thank goodness for caring, fairy friends to help us out in these trying times!

I wasn't planning on submitting anything for fairies (my last illo took too long and life was crowding in), but I started sketching last night and this is what I pulled together. Once I scanned it in, that rose color was flaming hot (which it isn't in the original), but a little computer fixing made it tolerable for the eyes. My husband has been wanting fairies with flip flops ever since I drew one without them (the flip flops were my son's idea), hence the flip flopped fairies.

I think they're great. And hey, it's getting flip-flop weather.

they're just lovely! such a great idea drawing fairies with flip-flop :) and I especially love the one with eye-glasses, my littlest little daughter have to wear it now and she's really looks like a fairy with it.

Oh, comme elles sont charmantes, ces petites fées sur fleurs ! Elles sont trés printanières et bucoliques, j'aime beaucoup !

I like that you've added a story to the fairy prompt. The fairy in the flower is really nice, and I like the shape of the wing and the hair on the other fairy.
