The adult faces are less sweet and arnt suposed to be seen that way.They are elder, strern ,noble ,remote,powerful, mysterious and they dont trust humans who have wandered close to the border of their world to spy them. Even the children are wize and solemn,but here are moments of innocence and happiness.
You do miss some details,but those are surprises for those who buy my works. I do want to make some animated gifs or quicktime thingies that wll rotate the figures. Just another one of those things on my list to get to someday!
One of the things I appreciate/respect about your work is that, I feel, your characters show the darker side of Faery. Happy, shiny, sparkly Fae are fun, but it's nice to see a dark and (possibly) more realistic take on the denizens of Faery. Not all of them are going to be made of gossamer and flower petals. So your characters/figures force you to see and (even grudgingly) acknowledge the darker aspects, too.
Love the idea of the rotating images. I've tried doing that with a couple of my masks using the video option on my camera. But I totally 'get' leaving surprises for the lucky buyers of your work. Can't fault you there.
Yes they do, as I do The sweet winged fairies are whymsical imaginings. I think they are really glamours. but the meanings of words get homogenized. Such as "goth" changing from a germanic people to, horror to punk, all the way to frilly japanese girls in bonetts!
The woods are full of shining eyes and unheard voices. They are dark ,but not evil just other and too wilde for convention. But it would be boring if everybody made the same kind. The glitter pusses are fun too.
yeah it will be cool if I can actauly get the gif thing done!
