an illusion or fabrication of the mind; especially : an unrealizable dream

Made this on my iMac using Adobe Photoshop CS, a tablet, stock photos from sxc.hu and some that I purchased.

Sort of supposed to be a companion to a piece I painted almost a year ago just called "The Forest Fae" but I'm thinking she needs a better name... I will submit her soon, as well as "Hidden Flame", the first in this series of three.

I don't know what she is. You can't see her ears or wings, is she human, fae or elf? Sprite? Dryad? Spirit? Ghost? Strangely, the other two pieces also lack any real defining traits.

So for now I'm calling her a Chimera.

Maybe they're all Chimeras.

I'll leave comments on, even though I won't have time to respond to any that aren't questions.

I like the sheer butterfly wing silhouette thing on her face. And she looks kinda like one of those adorable Japanese Harajuku girls; you know?

A chemira usually is a creature with body parts from many different species. The word Chemira means something like 'Many body parts' Its originally a beast with a lion's head and body, a goats head, and it's tail is that of an upper part odf a snake that originated from greek mythology , but there are chemiras in other cultures too that differ in appearance. As for the other's I'd have to look up in Wikipedia, I suggest you do to XD. 83

Beautiful work. She sorta reminds me of water...because of her deep blue eyes. But, no idea what she'd be lol. Keep up the awesome work.
