So sketching out these fairies has been a zen little exercise, and I found (big shock) that good reference and sometime spent on the outfit makes a huge difference. So it is also a bit of visual library building and all that, but I was finding the poses kind of stiff. I liked the birds, and the outfits but all of my little winged people were just sort of looking off-page. I rounded up some photos of people playing with / hugging horses and I'm trying to incorporate that to add a little interest / emotion in the drawings. Seems obvious - and yet.
