Dandelion Magic by merimask Dandelion Magic by merimask
Okay, so, here's the story behind this fairy. It always seems like magic to me, when the dandelions start blooming everywhere. It's like one day there aren't any and the next day, the fields are FULL of them.

What if there was a little fairy responsible for getting the dandelions going? What if her only job was to go about looking for grassy fields and magiking a single dandelion there? You know, it only takes one and before you know it there are thousands of them...

So I did this watercolor of her. She's like the spirit of early summer...buzzing bees and the smell of warm grass.

Noooo, kill the dandelions! I make a habit of plucking them all from my yard. Damned things will overrun the grass if given half a chance. Curse you, dandelion fairy! *shakes fist*

Er, oh, and I like how all the lines seem to expand outward from the dandelion; really makes it the center of attention. *yoinks it out of the ground* MWAHA!

You win the prize! :-) I am glad you noticed...everything in the picture is arrows, pointing to the flower. The shape of her hair, the wings, her splayed fingers...even the open space in the trees.

You deserve a cookie! *hands you a virtual choc chip cookie*

Yay for cookies! ;) And it proves your artistic skills that you succeeded in pulling it off! (The focus on the dandelion, not the cookie. :D )

dandelions are not weeds! *pouts and plucks some of :icontreyos:' eyebrows to see how it feels* :P is gonna tell Izzy your picking on faeries again.

Actually I kinda like the dandelion faerie. She makes everything so bright and cheery. I would like to see the faeries of the dandelion seeds that float about a little later on. And the little arrows are a nice touch!

Gah! She already knows I'm OCD about the dandelions; she keeps laughing at my obsessive removal of them 'cause she thinks it's cute or something. ;P
