Really magical feel to this. Lovely greenery in the crown and blue white delicacy to the fragile moths.

wow... love how you have wrapped so many elements around him, especially things of the night and deep shadow -- moths turning into other flying creatures, moss and lichens, stars and mists...

beautiful...

Thank you very much, Charles! 
Sincerely, selection of elements which could be featured for material incarnation for Master of Visions and Dreams taked around two years for me)), before I thought that I really can draw him, also some impressions from life)  
Feanturi are especially complicate theme for depiction)

Yes, complicated! ;-)

I will say that, in spite of the number of different elements you've included, the composition still holds together well. There's a flow as they seem to stream up from the bottom and circle around his head.  It is very clear that he is in control of all of this, rather than a sense of being visually overwhelmed.

As always, beautiful work!

Какой интересный Ирмо у Вас получился. Окружение нежное, воздушное, сказочное такое - цветы, бабочки (кстати, совершенно прекрасные)... А сам он не кажется ни женственным, ни чрезмерно мягким - этакий воин на страже сновидений.

Очень нравится, любуюсь :-) Спасибо!

EKukanova Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2016
Спасибо большое!  атрибутику-детали очень долго собирала.   А сны, они ведь очень разные бывают..)  мне вот Ирмо представляется почему-то немножко сродни Локи, если бы Локи был хорошим))

:iconfairyng:
FairYng Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2016
Добрый Локи?! Ну, я не знаю... Локи - классический трикстер, а Ирмо - кто угодно, только не жестокий шутник и не обманщик.
Разные они, совершенно разные.
А, да, я же не сказал, что хотел: ваш Ирмо прекрасен. Я уже давно заметил, что умение передать мужскую (именно мужскую, то есть мужественную, с долей брутальности) красоту у художников - большая редкость. У вас - получилось, за что большое спасибо от представителя сильного пола. :-)

А по моему очень даже любит он пошутить, и чувство юмора у него весьма специфическое)), такого порой пришлёт...)  А то экскурсию устроит куда не просили..,  ну, может это он со мной так)   Хороший- потому что всё таки держит себя в рамках)), ну и красоту тоже дарит, 50 на 50, как-то так)    И потом, я же сказала "немножко", а не Локи вписавшийся в легендариум)
Спасибо большое за тёплые слова! приятно знать, что и сильный пол одобряет:)

О, интересно. Я вообще особо не задумывалась о характере Ирмо, он мне представлялся кем-то вроде целителя-утешителя. Но да, учитывая, что нам иногда подсовывают сновидения, почему бы Ирмо и не походить на Локи? В любом случае, Ваш мне нравится :-)

Ну, мне Мастер Снов и Грёз представляется персонажем довольно сложным и многогранным, не таким уж исключительно благостно-медитативным))   И спасибо за поддержку...
