just captures of progress of the blue butterfly - this is at 20% (download for full 20% res) but really the resolution is so large and I hardly ever zoom in over 50%... i just keep large just in case I somehow manage a worthwhile piece that's worth giving a lot of detail to.
my technique really is just messily paint and keep the mistakes lol...
progress 1: general butterfly shape & colour established
by progress 5 I've started cleaning up and veining the butterfly
6-8 is mainly texturing and I added some colour from the girl's lips
and step 9-10 is just kind of putting in some extra details to make it seem more real.
