Butterfly Dream by Katerina-Art Butterfly Dream by Katerina-Art
Fantasy portrait of one of my all time favorite fantasy artists maria j william :iconsijeney:
One look at marias art and you can see why i love her art so much, it's
beautiful,inspirational and creative :)plus she works with pencils
which i love :heart:

I was so happy when maria gave me the green light to use one
of her beautiful personal photos to draw her,i always wanted to
draw a geisha and i loved marias asian make-up and dress in
her photo and i had inspiration and ideas right away what to do
especially with the background .


I have been working on this portrait for weeks between moving
and just late last night finished the background and butterflies :)

Hope you all like it :)

All pencils 2h ,2b,4b,6b on 8'3x10'7 vellum bristol board 2006

This is very pretty! You've done a great job at getting the texture and shading just right for the clothing, and the butterflies are quite pretty! :) You can tell that it's Maria too! :) Keep up the beautiful work!
