Poof, Linda Smith (2D)

Title: Poof
Name: Linda Smith
Country: United States
Software: Photoshop

This is a painting I did for IFX Fragile Things monthly challenge for August. I had a lot of fun with it and have always wanted to paint a blue butterfly, but had never been pleased with what I did in traditional media.

References used were several dandelions from my "lawn" and a poor roadkill butterfly that was on the grill of the car (it wasn't a blue butterfly but it did have nice wing patterns). I had fun keeping the kitties out of my references.

I can't believe no comments on this. This is an absolutely gorgeous piece. Tremendous.
Keep this in mind when training animals: If you beat a cat with a loaf of bread, there is *no* way you'll ever train him to make you a sandwich!

The Mood , the Atmosphere, The Quality and Idea of the Image is perfect! This is revolution image in your artworks i think, you style is creatures funny monsters ( i like them all too) But this is really Image with deep meaning!
I hope you will not stop to draw that way!
Good Luck, exelent mark from me!

It's really a wonderful piece, Linda, love everything in it: mood, colors, setting... I can't believe I missed it when it was posted, but I've been rather caught in my own things recently...

Congratulations on a well deserved victory!

Thumbs up Amazing

This is so feary like. I mean, it is really gorgeous. It seems night but there is light in the air. Did you want to create a moonlight effect?

oh my Thaldir I never saw your post, lol now who needs to apologise *embarassed here thank you my friend for the compliments

johndowson - I was not sure exactly what effect I wanted to create with it, I was concentrating so hard on the butterfly and the dandelion (gave myself a blister painting it ha ha ) I only added the background at the last moment. Once it was in though it did appear a bit moonlit and I may have subconciously enhanced that. Thank you for the visit and the very kind comments and compliments
