Sketchbook - Gnomes and Faeries.

Some recent doodle activity.

Lovely work, as always!

Those are some pretty fun and unique gnome hats! The tallish fez-looking one on the right amuses me. :)

I really like how your nude faeries and other females have more in common with Botticelli's Venus than the twiggy and top-heavy nudes in a lot of recent fantasy and comic art.

Thanks Emma
I really appreciate that. For inspiration when drawing nudes I often look to sculptors such as Gerhard Marcks and Aristide Maillol and artists like Augustus John and Frank Brangwyn.
