Thread: Updated WIP - Butterfly from a while ago (now with text.)

  1. #1

    Updated WIP - Butterfly from a while ago (now with text.)

    I took it off the WIP section a while ago, thinking it to be a dead end painting. I recently noticed it again and started back in on it.

    It's three layers from a reference photo. Using crayon and blending with the knife or even soft blending with the crayon pressure low.

    (EDIT - Going to slowly try to recall the progress as I went, per the request of one of our new forum members. So it will be a while before I update with a new image. I will be moving things around to accommodate the text. Hope it's helpful, enjoyable and informative.

    Adding some text to each of the screen shots to explain some of your techniques and settings would make this a very good tutorial.

    I enjoy seeing what people like you come up with. I am tryin to learn how to draw and how to use the tool and things like this are very enjoyable.

    Well done. I particularly like how the "focus" is on the butterfly and flower with the background looking like plants that are out of focus for the camera.

    The focus effect is what I like most about the picture as well. I will try to go back through and give you an idea of what I was doing and when.

    Might take me a day or so to remember exactly.

    Breathtaking! I love the way that you made your version of the butterfly unique, but still captured the essence of the original subject. I love it!
