hmmmm found this on the hard drive just now while looking for something else. forgot all about it! at the time, this wasn't anything like what i was 'sposed to be doing so i put it aside for later, and later apparently never happened.
in any event, now that its rested for almost a year (!) and i see it again with somewhat fresher eyes -- hey, i kinda like it! maybe we'll finish it up after all :-)
here i was trying to come up with something for Phil Brucato's Deliria project, i think we were looking for something for next book after Deliria, the Aelder Fae.... anyway i was hunting around for some type of ethereal being semi fairy-ish but with the look of something also alien to human thought.
sadly, the follow up to Deliria, a book about the Aelder Fae, never came into being because Smoke, Mirror and Muse couldn't hold it together - infighting is the ruin of so many promising enterprises! --- fortunately, i am happy with what i've done, and as a result of working with Phil on Deliria, i have some of my favorite pieces because of it!
here we're playing with the concept of creating a russian religious icon type portrait of one of the Aelder Fae.
get ready now as there is a plethora of renders here with me exploring this and that - goblins, fae, creatures and such all related -- but not LOL.
