Long ago and far away (before the internet), I was lucky if I came across one gorgeous fairy sculpture per year. Now with the internet and in particular, Pinterest, they are waiting for me everyday! And sometimes more than one. Here are four that I have collected recently. Let’s take a look and analyze them for our new sculptors out there.
Here is the Frost Queen that is from Deviant Art. I love the drama created with the black background and the various shades of white, including the hair, as well as what looks like glitter-enhanced wings.
Even her body has a shimmer to it and her pose is very soft and gracious.
Her “gown” appears to be a tulle-like material and it’s flow adds a softness and brings the viewer’s eye in and out of the picture like a painting.
Even from a distance, her eyes are very expressive. Look closely at the knees and you will see evidence of a fantastic sculptor. You can almost see the knee caps and the leg bones, but yet they maintain a certain amount of grace and believe-ability in the pose.
Great work of art!
Next is a beautiful sculpture from forgottenhearts.com. This fairy is also presented in a lavender “monotone” with her wings and her hair matching. She sits gently on a branch, and her hair is perfectly in scale and this artist too shows remarkable ability in the gracefulness of the fairies legs and arm poses.
The contrast against the real-world green is amazing.
I wish I could see a frontal view of this doll’s face. If anyone know the artist’s name or have other pictures, please feel free to post them below.
This beauty is from tatteredfae.blogspot.com. This fairy’s focus is her eyes and I love the hairstyle. It’s quite elaborate, but believable and in scale. She too has a very believable pose. The little skimpy outfit she has on matches her hair perfectly and it too is very believable.
I cannot tell what her wings are made of, but whatever it is, it looks tattered enough for someone who spends most of their days flying around gardens and forests.
Her facial features are very sweet and yet very dramatic. Love her to death.
