the pumpkin fairies.. by neurotic-elf the pumpkin fairies.. by neurotic-elf
*tribute to one of my fav bands ever*

about a week ago, while listening to their haunting melodies, i was reading their story as well + i was inspired to draw this.. they first appeared sometime in 1989, as "the pumpkin fairies", till they were renamed -about a year after- "slowdive", and used that name till they were forever split, in 1995......... :(

this is one of my biggest -in size- detailed drawings in watercolors + markers.. :nod:
but tonight i'm in such a baaad mood (which actually matches perfectly with the heavy dark clouds outside) , so even though i know i should have worked some more on this, i didn't...... :depressed:

that gives you no excuse though to be gentle on me.. :)

i'll probably edit it some more.. but then again, maybe not.. :clueless:




to K.A... despite of his stubborness.. :heart:

i luv the fact that u got inspired to draw and color this picture, cloudy days(in my opinion) are the best type of days. ur art is very creative and extremely good, i wish i could do somthing like this.

um, I only have the Slowdive's cds, I don't own any of their songs as Pumpkin Fairies, cause I never found one.
:O_o:
Search for Slowdive and if you still can't find many of their songs, I'd be happy to send them to you !!
:aww:
