Hello DragoArt members and visitors! Today we’re going to do an awesome and fun tutorial on a Gothic pixie. Everyone knows that pixies are the same thing as fairies right? I haven’t drawn a pixie in a while. I think when I was like nine years old was the last time I drew a pixie. I don’t really like to categorize pixies and fairies. To me they’re all the same. I mean I think pixies might me smaller then a fairy but I don’t know. Anyways, I looked at some references online to get my pixie right. I found a lot of interesting images of pixies and fairies. Some pictures I saw were both of the fairy and pixie specie mixed together. To me I find that odd because both of these species are kinda the same. I made this tutorial out of inspiration due to the Final Fantasy games. Yesterday my brother and I got a new game system and the Final Fantasy XII game. It’s the Playstation 3 system. So me and him sat down and played Final Fantasy all night long. We had so much fun. Some of the monsters were like fairy looking things. So I came to my computer and thought to myself, what about a pixie character? Not only that, but this is my third tutorial for my little sister. So I thought hey why not draw a female gothic pixie for her but in a cute way. I wanted to draw one of them and share my work with the members and visitors I get on DragoArt. So I did and here’s the process of the coloring and shading of the being. The first attempt on coloring it was all red and some green. Now, after the image colored scheme, I though to myself, “too Christmassy”. So I started over and began to do a different color scheme. This time I did black, red, and green. I used mostly black in the image so the Christmas look would be cancelled out. So I was satisfied with the current color scheme I had. The shading came out well too. I had some flaws when shading, like screwing up on my light source. I fixed the light source problem and began to highlight. This step came out to be well done and perfect. Then after all the shading and stuff was done, I thought I was finished. But then I figured out I was missing something. I forgot to add some pixie dust. So I added dust to her dress and some floating around the glowing ball of magic held in her hand. Then I realized I was done. So I guess that’s it I mean there’s nothing else special about the image. I colored her and drew her out using my Wacom Intous3 tablet and Adobe Photoshop CS3. Now I will let you all go, I need my time to finish other tutorial =D
