Grey Fairies by Jellyneau Grey Fairies by Jellyneau
This is my entry for GreyFairie's 2012 Birthday Bash Contest - 'WTF is a GreyFairie?' - [link] The premise - what exactly is a GreyFairie, anyway?

Here's my theory. A GreyFairie is a fairy for the grey haired. A GreyFairie is there for the elderly person in need. The lonely, the neglected, the sad. That is what a GreyFairie is.

This was drawn on A4 Bristol paper with graphite: 9B, 6B, 2B, 2H, 5H. I used some lovely stock images as reference for the fairies - two by :iconpieceofmestock: [link] & [link] and one by :iconfaestock: [link] The lovely elderly lady was drawn from a reference on a geneology site. I hope I've done her justice.

Enjoy! :D
