Like the image accompanying this post? I did too! In fact, I’m in love with it. If you go to [Den3221’s Deviant Art Profile], you can visit the insanely talented artist who designed this fairy image. You should check out his gallery; there are plenty of other images to die for, including a colored version of this very fairy. If you think Den’s drawing skills are divine, just wait until you see the colored drawings he’s done ;)
