I think a little girl in red would look pretty cool. Butterfly wings or not, the red would be a good contrast to the greens. A little girl would be much better than a mean old ogre with his battle axe.
She has her back to us, but here she is. The pool by this point was filled with folks, some of whom were unphotogenic, so I had to leave out most of the pool. It had got a little later so the light wasn't spilling over in the same way it was in the other one.

Love that shot, she adds a sense of scale and the red really works well - her pose is interesting too!

This looks like good fodder for a Piet drama presentation........

butterfly wings and magical light have to be played with, even if it ends up not working..

I had thought of something like that! Thank you for it! I also thought of dragonfly wings...Her back being turned gives a good opportunity to find her the right pair.

I liked the color of them, matching the top part of the image. It is actually a side view of a butterfly with the wings duplicated and flipped. I think the image has too much saturation, but I guess the genre calls for it - definitely outside of my normal zone.

Fantasy work lets us dream in new colors.

The water sprite but no wings? Or Piet’s first edit minus the water sprite?
