i changed that terrible sketch of mine :shrug:

Painter, ~40mn



I haven’t done a daily sketch in forever! Photoshop CS3 with Wacom. Click the thumbnails to see full size.

       Finished 1hr 30min:
       45 minutes:



50 minutes in Gimp


It was suppost to be the crawling caterpillars turning into a winged beauty(butterfly). But the 45 minutes came alot sooner then expected, so I just finished off the c-pillar.

the reason I did a butterfly is because I am constantly trying to make myself a beautiful person. Not how I look, but thing such as being a better human being, helping the enviroment, etc. And I think the more I do to improve myself the closer I am to becoming a butterfly!

Good work, guys.


ugh, It’s been a while since I last contributed… just had to do this one as I found the subject to be rather inspiring :slight_smile:

I guess the painting is kind of selfexplaining; To feel the comfort and safety in ones situation, but always longing for more, for the next plateau - the realisation of ones potential.

Anyway, used about 45-50 minutes on this piece… :slight_smile:



You know, I did not want to like that, but I could not stop laughing, so I had to admit defeat. Good job.


Hehe, thanks Glenn :slight_smile:
Thats my journey of life :wink:
