I really feel sorry for them! Really great work!

Great looking scene and story

looking good. But the composition is alittle odd. Looks like it has 2 focopoint going on there, 1 is the farries, and the other one is the man on the road. They both are at the corner of the picture. It makes me kinda confuse to where to start looking at it.

I didn't get thru the whole thread but I noticed everyone mentioning the lighting. I actually like the lighting because it moves your eye in a circular pattern around the entire composition which is what the artist probably wants. The glow on the fairies leads to the slightly lit, open path between the trees above them. The faded light in the background moves your eyes back across the picture to the dark figure in the background. And then the little spots of reflected light in the water puddles move you right back to the fairies.
So you've basically got sort of a 3-dimensional circular composition. Having an extra light source on the fairies is no different from a movie director using lights for dramatic effect.
I think it works for this image.

You have no idea who I am, of course, but I've been following your work for years now and I think it's great that you are still posting work here on CGTalk.

Anyway the style of the fairies reminds me of Edouard Manet's Olympia, 1863.

Or even more, a piece called "Centaurs and Dryads" by, I think, Paul Manship.
At the lower resolution I can really dig it although I do see how the lighting is a little "undone" in spots. If the fearies were a wee bit darker then the light coming from the flower could be brought out a lot more on their figures.

At the higher resolution I can see many places where it's real grainy and things don't blend right but I do that all the time if I know a piece will be presented at a lower resolution.

Very nice, love the idea, great story behind it.

I knew the moment I saw the fairies that it was a Stahlberg. Wonderful work, Steven. The concept is so disturbingly fantastic. Keep it up!
