Goblin Nights, Fairy Bites by LouisaGallie Goblin Nights, Fairy Bites by LouisaGallie
Once upon a time, a wily woman known as =Mercuralis mentioned that she'd like to see how I did the glitter in my other Labyrinth paintings. I wouldn't be surprised if it had been thirteen months since I decided I'd make a "quick" tutorial for her (ok, so it hasn't been quite that long) because somehow what was going to be a short and sweet painting with oodles of glitter turned into something much more involved.

Actually, I rather think it's one of the best paintings I've done to date.

The tutorial itself can be found here: Goblin Nights Glitter Tutorial

Goblin Nights, Fairy Bites by *phuriedae. From the suggester: "Beautiful, sexy, mysterious, and sparkly--a gorgeous piece of Labyrinth fan art that (for once) isn't all about Jareth!" ( Suggested by MelissaFindley and Featured by aunjuli )

I love the fairy feel of this skirt! The colors, the style, the feathered edges and I like the style of the bodice, the gold edging, the leathery look.  I like how it complements Jareth and the blown-in-by-the-wind feel of that touch of a cape there.  Gorgeous!  The fairies are adorable! Wish I could see the castle a bit better, with her so bright and center stage I just miss the castle and I wish I could see it better so I could admire it a little more. The feather earring is a bit distracting sometimes, which is unfortunate because it's an excellent feather!  :-)

I am simply amazed at the detail on this painting, it is magnificent. The only part I don't like is the dark castle in the background, in my humble opinion it would have been greatly enhanced by painting the moon in full white or blue color with some dark clouds around it. I seriously like the fairies, they show attention to detail.

Thanks for the critique! You make a good point - it's not ideal to have almost a third of the composition with all dark values. At the time I believe I didn't want anything to distract from the main subject. If I was going to go back and change it I would probably bring the moon in behind the castle and brighten the sky up just as you suggested. The things we learn with time :)

Exellent job here! I love the colors that you added as they compliment here. There is a sort of sexual vibe within her, yet a sort of innocence that cannot be denied. I absolutely love this! Thank you for sharing this with us :).

You might be interested in knowing that a Russian website is featuring this painting as a download for the Sims 3. You'd think they at least would credit the artist. [link] to see the collection of 'femininity and beauty' that this has been 'featured' in.

While the entire shebang is gorgeous, I find myself drawn more to her expression than anything else. The tilt and wideness of the eyes and the almost feline grin are fantastic and very mood-setting alongside her surroundings.

Absolutely incredible! It really is nice to see amazing labyrinth art that isn't solely about Jareth (though he is great) It's just nice. She looks absolutely phenomenal here, the detail you put into everything is mind-blowing, including your effort in making her look like the actress. Amazing work! Kudos!
