The Moth Fairy by Stephanie Smith

Currently unavailable for purchase

Part of my New Years Resolution was to make more quick artwork and participate in more RB challenges. This is my first submission for the awesome Bubbler Portraits group, a portrait of the lovely LaNanDeSha. This image is based on two of the photos she provided to the group. She’s such a cutie, I was feeling a little extra-inspired. :)
