Garnet by redheaded-step-child Garnet by redheaded-step-child
Garnet is the second in my new series of Gemstone Fairies. Garnet is one of my favorite gemstones, and is one of the birthstones for the month of January. I have to be honest, this is my dream dress! :aww:

The reference model for the Garnet Fairy is from the lovely and will be entered in their huge Fairy contest, along with Tanzanite. Wish me luck! :D

All of your gemstone fairies are really beautiful and well done, but this one is my favorite. I like the deep wine red color.

This is good! The colors are rich and beautiful. Everything about it flows together in a stunning way. The contrast of red, white and black is wonderful. :D

I really love how you made the wings to seem so other-worldly, but natural in both pose and fashion the colour choice is perfect and the way the gown flows is lovely.

Thank you! I'm glad you like the wings, I find them a bit hard to do sometimes. :hug:

Love the dress, really! But the wings are more attractive to me somehow, perhaps the way you draw them?

Thanks! I wanted to get that dark feeling garnets tend to have. They look deep and dark, then the light hits them and they flash with color. I love this stone a lot. :)

Being a January baby, I have to say I'm a bit biased but this piece is spectacular!

That dress is absolutely amazing. I especially love the detached sleeves and all the ruffle detail. Red normally isn't my favorite color but I don't really think there's too much. The lighter shades on the dress and the moon help to balance all the bright red of her dress and wings.

The way you did her face is amazing. It's small but I can still make out her expression. My only complaint would be that the arm holding the glowing orb looks a bit awkward, like she's holding her forearm away from the viewer.

You make my birthstone happy. *thumbs up*

I'm always so happy when people like how I paint things that mean something to them! I love this dress too, I would love to have one like it if there was anywhere to possibly wear it! :giggle: I'll have to focus more on keeping my anatomy natural.
