The Butterfly Pool by Saimain The Butterfly Pool by Saimain
's albino character Stormshade, falling prey to my infamous glowy butterflies and excessive foliage, bwahahah. ^___^ A painting that's been in the works for months now, and I'm pleased to say that it's finally finished! Thanks so much for your patience, Gillian.
My wrist hurts.

I love the unnatural colour you gave him (or her), it shows that he's been out of the sun for a while and just adds to the prettiness of the picture...

:worship: you are too amazing.

Do you paint each leaf by hand? My brain keeps telling me that it has to be photoshop - no one can possibly be this talented, but I still believe that results like these can't be made so perfectly in photoshop. You're like... Amazing. I wish I had your talent.

You're modern day Michelangelo or something....

Thank you. :) Yes, I paint everything by hand. Photoshop does not create anything itself, it's only a program with brushes and a color palette to mimic traditional media.

As I've noticed, after beginning to use Photoshop myself. It's insanely difficult to operate, but very neat.
