There is a great behind the scenes video here, showcasing the R&D DD did while building these assets and performances, check it out here: fxguide: The many faces of Malelficent
I worked mainly on Thistlewit (Green Faerie), and Flittle (Blue Faerie). The images I'm featuring here are of Thistlewit, who is based on the actor Juno Temple. Texture work consisted of facial scan cleanup and general skin texturing of the body and missing areas. Here are some screen grabs of the texture maps in progress:

The texture and shader approach was straightforward and simple. Aside from utility maps, the standard diffuse, spec, bump, displacement and single sss color maps were used.

In addition to skin textures, we also were tasked with creating the costumes. Each character had clothes made from plants, primarily leaves and flowers. I developed a small workflow for getting a leaf look, and the images featured here show some of the workflow.
