Anima: Fairy of Darkness by Wen-M Anima: Fairy of Darkness by Wen-M
original concept sketched in 2007, went through a few changes but the feeling remained the same.

When I sketched her as a full adult in 2007, she had a black night gown type of thing, with a veil over her face. I never got it to work right though, hopefully i get to work on her adult version sometime later.

second change was when my boss ordered the fairies in 2008, this time I gave her a more gothic loli dress, quite similar to this one but she didnt have the feathers or the belts on the back, and she was holding an umbrella instead of the candle =]

last came this design, the skull on the hair and the candle were both last minute additions. the chain for the waist area was also done only in this design. I particularly like the opening of the shirt in the middle of the torso.

the stars at the end of the belts came from the first sketch in 2007 =]

her name is Xianne, thanks to my friend :iconjinh-yuhn:

I think it's pretty awesome, but maybe an orante gothic candle holder or staff holding the candle would work better?
Or not. Whichever.

Hmm.. looks quite interesting, but her face is rather unfitting.. It makes the picture worse, you could make it better..
But the pose and the colors are beautiful ^^
