Summer Night by Monica-NG Summer Night by Monica-NG
The night of Summer Solstice it's my favourite night :) In my city we go to the beach, jump the fires, take a bath in the sea and see the fireworks.
But surely my fav summer solstice was when I was as a child in my grand-dads house in the mountains. There they says that the veil of this world and the world of the fairies is very thin! :) And people can see the fairy realm this night. I and my sister danced with candels and fire under the stars with music.

I dolled a scene of a human bard that has lost this night in his way home and he found a fairy circle :3 He sings and plays the lute and fairies and nymphs dances and sings too. Maybe he has lost in the other world forever o_o

The bases are mine (Equidna & Einherjar) :3 [link] I painted and pixelled all the scene :3 I got some references of the tutorial of ~tata-s-z celtic knots for the frame.

I spent a totally of 4 days finishing it :3 All the fairies has complete details and outfit that in the composition are partial hidden by the other figures. :)
Used PS CS4

Sorry for my crappy English :meow:

EDIT: Thanks a lot for the DD!! I know I got 3rd place, but I'm so honoured by this! :D Thank you!

It is more than incredible...excellent! I believe that mermaid tail was a toughest part to do?

:iconmonica-ng:
Monica-NG Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2010  Professional General Artist
I think that the mermaid was the first figure I done. It was not so difficult: you have to draw a scale pattern first, then, place it following the movement of the tail and finally, make them shine scale by scale :P The most difficult part was the dancer and bard, because they are the main focus of the composition :D

Maylar Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2010
Oh, I see...I thought scales must be though, you know. But, I do understand how the dancer and bard were the hardest part. Luckily, it turned out great :)
