Mystery of the Tooth Fairy by jermilex Mystery of the Tooth Fairy by jermilex
Legend tells of a mythical creature that creeps into our rooms while we sleep as children and checks under our pillows for lost teeth and exchanges them for coins. But what does this creature do with it's recently purchased treasures? Maybe it's no fairy at all. I snapped this shot while my son was sleeping and discovered the truth of what lurks in the shadows... waiting.

I really love this scale of hues! I'd like to use it in a paint in an attic with internal artificial light and external moon light.
It's a pleasure see your artworks here.
Please take a look at my portfolio

I choose to continue envisioning my fairies as ethereally beautiful immortal girls with wings and magical powers...but I got a good laugh out of this. Funny and creepy

O.O Wow, I never thought of that! XD I love it! It's so much better than the smallish bug thing that my mom always told me. My daughter doesn't believe that a small bug person sneaks into her room anyway, she thinks it's the blue monster thing from Monsters Inc. I might just show her this picture, she'll love it! Great job!

something about this picture makes me wonder if the little monster dude is going to shove that tooth into its own mouth (he looks like he has quite the collection already)

very nice picture btw

I love it! Very creative and imaginative. :D I think I far prefer your Tooth "Fairy" to the traditional little bug person. =P (S)he's so happy looking. Heehee! I also really like the little glowing lights on the Fairy, as well as the other lights throughout the painting. :)
:+fav:
As a side note, this little guy reminds me a lot of the many monsters in Monsters Inc. Which is a good thing. ;)
