It was recommended that I check out the sketches of this artist, and am I ever glad for the tip! The sketches were pretty good, but the finished illustrations are very imaginative and ethereal. He really seems to connect with that fairy energy, and most of the poses and colours he used in his pieces capture that magical, other-worldly feeling you get in the pit of your stomach. He currently has a couple of books out, information on which you can find on his own sites. Links below.

This is his website, feel free to check out more of his work: http://www.art.zaprasza.eu/Author.php?user_id=78

A digital fantasy artist with some very enchanting illustrations. There is a very soft quality to the pictures that is slightly reminiscent of a hand-drawn piece, which I enjoy.

As a warning to those who will follow the link to the artist’s work, the first illustration is of a nude fairy, so be prepared for that.

Fairy artist. I apologize for the text across the pictures, but I got them off of the artist’s website and if that’s what the artist wants who am I to complain.

This is an artist that I do not really like that much. She has skill and there are people who like her work, but I’m not one of them. To me her work looks kind of creepy or evil… the unseelie court maybe. But here it is anyway for your pleasure!
