Artist ARTIST Profile: Faerydae

I create all kinds of ACEOs / ATCs / Sketch Cards as well as doodles, paintings, sketches, and drawings.

I even sculpt - but I am a really slowwwwww sculptor! LOL!

In any case, I've been getting more and more back into comic art here and there - although I prefer doing fantasy art.

I also sell a lot of pin-up work so be warned if you do a search for my work ... nudity is something I do not steer away from, I do a lot of nude pieces. I just like to let folks know ahead of time that all my work that I sell isn't necessarily safe for work or for kiddies to view!

Welcome to site.

I love your work, Faerydae, i especially like the sculpture of the pumpkins, they look fantastic.

As for the nudity, it's very tastefully done and looks beautiful.

You should post up some pictues of your favourite pieces here.

Rob.

I don't see any problems with any of your Sketchs or drawings.

I see it as, the more people that can see your artwork,the better.

So post to your heart's content.

No real rules here, just try to post things in the proper places, especially with the more adult stuff.

It is okay to post ads, links to auctions, etc here too.

Welcome aboard and looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Mike.

Okay - cuz I do a LOT of nudes and pin-up art ... so it's good to know what the basic rules are lol.

Um, likely to not post a lot of my adult stuff in the adult forum (and thus not post it here) because I'm seeing a lot of stuff that is more pornography oriented - whereas my stuff is more erotic art and pin-ups ... most of the reason it would be labeled "adult" at all is just due to the nudity really (something I personally don't get, but I abide by western society's hang ups about nudity when it comes to what is okay to post where. lol).

But if you are set to see mature images on Flickr, you can see every card that I've ever made up on my Flickr. But all the nude pieces are set to the mature moderation level.

Smile Faerydae's WIPs (works in progress)

I figured that since I'm sort of newish in this area still, I would post the things that I am working on for fun!

It's probably the collector in me, lol, but I always *love* seeing other artist's works in progress on their desks - it's always so inspiring and fun to get that little peek at what they are going to be unveiling in the near future!

Anyways ... here are some of the cards I started on yesterday ... hoping to get them done today along with a larger commission painting ::crosses fingers, knocks on wood::: LOL!

very nice stuff

I notice there is a space for you signature on the "Dawn" card
- did you somehow leave that space ?
-- or white out an area for your signature ?

do you pencil first ?

I'm betting that you need to set your account to see mature art ... I do a LOT of nude and sexy work ... pin-ups, etc ... so you'd likely need to set that ... I have I think over 200 pictures in Flickr, pretty every thing decent I've created is shown there.

I white out the area for my little akm and it was drying still when I took the picture lol. And yup - I pencil first. This one I was just throwing out real quick, so I laid a little harder on the penciling than I like ... so there are some ghost lines if you look REALLLLLY close lol, but nothing that really bothered me or that I felt detracted from the card.

Got a lot of nice stuff, and you've got a lot of commission options. I was just wondering, for your card sized works/commissions, do you use just blank cards, or do you have specialized custom cards made up? Like, regular blank fronts or a fancy art bordered front, with a designed back or a biography back, etc.

Thank you , that is kind of you to say. I've just been using blank cards ... I have thought about just printing a bunch of cards off to use ... but then the backs can get a little messy. Although I do make double-sided art cards - those I tend to pour a lot more of myself into, so I don't do as often as my sexy pin-up doodle-art cards.

But I just recently noticed that a few comic artists seem to have printed blanks that appeared to have been purchased from a printing company of some sort but I have no idea where they get them done, or what the quality of the cards are or how sturdy they are, or how archival they might be.

I'm kind of picky - in that I want my card to FEEL thick, like a card (I like them sturdy) and I am a NUT about archival quality in terms of what I use to create art - I want it to look as good 100 years down the line as the day I made it, if it is stored properly and taken care of (not allowing direct light to hit it often, protecting it from UV and water and smoke damage, etc.).

I also want a surface that can take a licking - I throw all sorts of mediums at my cards a lot of the time ... so finish can be an issue as well as weight and texture and tooth - and I'd imagine that I'd be hard pressed to find any printing company that can meet all my demands and needs and desires - but I could be wrong!

I do print archival stickers for the backs as well. But ALL cards have all my data on it - my website urls, my ebay id, esty, artfire and zazzle urls, my signature, the state and country and the month and year that it was created - which is usually everything that traders and collectors seem to want available.

The whole comic card world is VERY new to me - the border thing is totally not common in the ACEO and art card world that isn't based on comics ... so it's just really new to me that anyone would find that either appealing or as something that would add value or interest ... up until the last few weeks, I'd have thought it to detract from the art and to be pointless LOL, so I am learning, allbeit a bit slower than I like!
