Poison - Faerie Art SCULPTURE by pixiwillow Poison - Faerie Art SCULPTURE by pixiwillow
Third time 'is' a charm . . .
I started this piece and finished it over three months ago . . . then destroyed it and started again, twice, before I was satisfied with what I had achieved. I'm really pleased with it this time, and feel like I've accomplished my original vision....a feral hunter / savage warrior. She is dressed in tattered leather scraps, and carries a blow dart gun and darts which she is lacing with the poison from the skin secretions on the dart frog. Both the frog and fairy are original, one of a kind, sculptures, created in polymer clay and mixed media. She rests on a moss covered base. Don't you just love her wings? I think they are the best I've ever done, as far as being fairy like . . . similar to something you'd see Brian Froud sketch.
The piece is being auctioned off on ebay : [link]

I love the poison concept of this fairy, the striped tail, the thorny wings, even the look on the face, the way the hands are, and that dart is so cool too. Impressive.

I think one of your best skills you have is your ability to convey a strong emotion in just the face and eyes. This one is a strong example. Wonderful work

this is awesome ... i didn't realize it was a sculpture for some reason.. way to read the title, right?

i love it much better than some photoshopped piece..
this is a rare scene for a faerie.. great attitude..

the wings are so unique..
