Butterflies by JustABeautifulDream Butterflies by JustABeautifulDream
This is my version from this month's reference from :icondraw-along:

The photo is from :iconbedo92000:

No idea how long it took me to draw this but I would say something around 10 hours. It was a nice change from the portraits and I really liked doing it.
But now I have to go back to portraits. ;P I found such a nice reference a few days ago...

-14cm x 19cm
-Bristol Board
-3H, 2B and 4B pencils

What a brilliant idea! I never thought to take a reference and break it into 3 sections with one section being the negative of the original image. The amount of detail in such a small space is just incredible! :clap: I was almost positive I commented on this earlier in the week. :ashamed:

Thank you so much!!
I'm a fan of breaking a picture in three parts and I wanted to draw something in negative for a while now. Now I did both in one picture. :B

Welcome:hug:

I'm good thanks, and you?
I have started a Jennifer Lopez drawing, I've had it on my desktop for a few weeks, just kept finding other pics I liked better!!!
LOL
And you, are you drawing anything at the moment?

I'm good thanks.
haha I know what you mean. There are always so many things I want to draw...
Yes, I do. Two faces but there isn't much visible from them. But I'm really slow at the moment so it will take some time until it's finished. :)

Have fun watching the movie! I'm really far behind with them, I stopped watching them after the 5th movie I think.

I'm good thank you. I have finished a drawing I started some weeks ago but can't upload it because I haven't gotten an answer from the photographer yet. :(

I honestly can't wait, I'm such a Harry Potter geek :laughing: David is the same, it was him who got me started ... pair of big kids :D The sixth movie is the Half Blood Prince and I actually found it a real let down, it's been my least favourite by miles :(

Oh no :( I hope the photographer get's in touch soon.
