Titania and the Changeling

"The boy had wandered into the woods. He was lost, probably on purpose, by his parents, and had followed the inaudible music of the faêrie, and had found passage into their realm. It had caused a bit of a stir in the court, but Titania had found the boy amusing, charming even.
The traditions would not approve, but she was the monarch, so who would dare oppose? The child would therefore be raised as one of the folk. He had demonstrated a strong affinity with the folk, and he would be initiated to their arts, their manners.
Indeed the court dared not question. After all, as part of the Faërie, the queen's whims were fleeting. Hopefully she wouldn't keep the young one too long."

This one took quite a long (but enjoying) time to execute, hope you enjoy it!
This time, I tried working with a large document size (5000*9000px give or take) but I think it pays off in terms of having a good finess of detail.
