Faery Elementals: FoxFire by maina Faery Elementals: FoxFire by maina
Still rushing to get all those prints ready for Otakon. I wanted to do a series of faery elementals. (it's a bit cliché, but I never really did and elemental series, so I wanted to do it for fun) I've got everyone of them sketched out. But this one is the first to be finished.

FoxFire is her name and of course she's the Fire Elemental.

================
Lineart: pencil and inks
Colors: Photoshop CS

Note: I want to thank everyone who's been commenting and faving my art in the last few days. I've posted quite a few and because I'm rushing to get all of my prints done, I don't have much time to comment back. But I really appreciate every single one of your comments and I do take time to read them! Thank you very much!

I found these drawings years ago through an image search of some kind and fell in love with them[link] I downloaded them and designed a huge tattoo for myself based off of them, but lost the original files when my computer died. Now, years later, I have found them again. Wow. The universe works in mysterious ways.
This series is beautiful and I have admired it for years.

=D Awwww~! She is so beautiful! I love th colors and the flow, so beautiful and amazing! This is digital correct? How do you get the lines so smooth? What do you use? I would LOVE to know. I have a drawing tablet but don't bother using it because the pictures are soooo pixelated due to the fact I only have paint. (ew) Anyway, once again, very beautiful!

Thank you so much!!!

The coloring is digital. But the lineart itself was done with pencils, then inked and scanned so that I could color it all in Photoshop after. =)

I love this! One thing I see is that her arms seem awkwardly placed, I'm not sure if it's realistic for the arms to raise up that high. I could be wrong though. Her left calf looks like it's in front of her left thigh as well. Other than that it looks good!

Beautiful, her expression is amazing, as if she's caught up in the passion of the fire. And her legs transferring into flames, swirling around her, just beautiful. Her wings are beautiful too.

I love your technique.....I wonder what type of paper you use to sketch them out? do you then scan it?

For these I sketched and ink the drawing in my Canson sketchbook. No particular paper. And yes, I scan it and color digitally. =)

She has the bestest swirliness ever! She just flows so effortlessly across the page. I like her hair. It's not one of the things you notice first, but it really is a great style!

Lovely sense of lighting on the figure. She seems just a bit dissassociated from the background, partially because it has texture and she is so smoothly colored, but the texture helps with interest in the background.... So I just I don't have any suggestionns on how to address that. It is just an observation. Overall, nicely done.
