Leanan Sidhe by liiga Leanan Sidhe by liiga
Edit 04.02.11: Fixed shading in a bunch of places, the image should flow a million times better now. :aww: Print file also updated.

A birthday gift to ~Uvaydra, finally catching up with my promise to draw a sexy guy for her. Happy birthday, Sheena!

Leanan Sidhe are a somewhat ambiguous type of fairy. On one hand they are akin to muses, picking an artist to inspire, making him or her live a shorter, but more creatively intense life. On the other hand, they are similar to succubi. I had a little fun trying to capture a bit of both.

Also while I'm at it, here's a link to a Giftart contest run by `iggygirl: [link]

Corel Painter 9, Wacom Intuos 3, a few days here and there.

May be reposted for as long as my name and preferably also a link back to my gallery are provided along with the image in a clear manner. No commercial use without my written permission. No modifications.

I say you succeeded quite nicely in capturing both sides of the Leanan Sidhe. :)

Maybe it's just the painting style, but Mr. Sidhe looks a little... furry.

I did leave his arms a little hairy looking on purpose, though it's more to do with him trying to be a manly man regardless of the whole fairy business than actual furrydom. :D
