Oona by RadiusZero Oona by RadiusZero
Yaaay! I completed my first ever fairy piccie! :floating: Surprisingly, this didn't feel as laborious/time-consuming as the Parasite Eve pic I did just previously. :P

I've no idea what happened with Oona. O_o Originally, I was going to try to duplicate the look of Oona from the movie "Legend". But I guess Oona had other plans in mind. :O_o: She wanted a more earthy look with huge retro hair, ala 80s style, and war-camo paint all over her face. So yeah, this is THE REVAMPED-KICK-ASS VERSION OF OONA. :slow:

I really liked doing a fairy. Initially, I was worried about doing one since I consider my art as dark art and I didn't want to fit into the cliche of a 'dark artist'. I tried hard bringing some intense colors and other elements to make Oona unique. I also got the chance to experiment with color more, which was definitely fun!

All righty, time to work on my next piece. It's convention season so hopefully I can squeeze in a few more pics soon. :)

Thanks so much for commenting here. And yeah, the ratio between comments and faves is funny. :giggle: Although, I'm extremely happy this pic is getting a lot more attention now. I was very proud of it when I first posted it. I didn't know how people felt about it however since only a handful commented on it.

It's actually mixed media! :) I call it 'fusion art'; it's a combination of traditional and digital media fused together. I grew up as a traditional artist, you see. Then I got into digital medium during my years in college. I enjoyed working with both and hated having to choose between one or the other. Thus, during my senior thesis project I began a series called 'Birth in Space'. There, I started to explore the fusion of both worlds. I guess, for me, I felt there was such a division between traditional artists and digital artists that I wanted to create a bridge between both worlds and declare to the world that it doesn't matter what the piece is made out of. Rather, what's important is the concept and the emotional/personal impact it has between artist and audience. :)

Why don't you put a bit of effort into your comments? You comment the same thing EVERY day, on EVERY Daily Deviation, it gets too repetitive.

You did very well. "Legend" was an okay movie, but I loved the scenery and story concepts. Oona was one of the few tolerable characters.

:love: Your colors, I looooooove your colors.

I like how it isn't in your face about it being a "fairy", it seems more like the older stories about faeries. Where they aren't all wishes and happy sparkles, much more the 'be careful what you wish for' eat your heart type of faery. Did I mention I love it?
