The wood sprites came about as part of an effort to infuse the enchanted forests of Elanthia with a necessary spark of life. Though we could have gone any number of directions with their design, it seemed like an appropriate place to utilize a somewhat traditional but popular notion of what denizens of the faerie realm look like - diminutive and delicate, colorful, nimble and capable of flight. In keeping with the blue-tinged forests, the coloration of the wood sprites is cool in tone with an animal theme; their wings borrowed from butterflies and their speckled skin influenced by vibrantly colored rainforest frogs.
Fairies, Sprites and Frogs.. Oh my!
