I just finished my latest work, for an art friend, Denise. I asked her to do a couple of photos for the pose last Autumn and one was perfect for adding a bunch of butterflies and the butterfly key. I wish you could see the shine of the key but it doesn't show as much on the scan. It's been one of my more time consuming drawings, I started it around Christmas and put quite some hours into it. It was almost like I couldn't finish it because I felt there were always something to add or make better.
I decided to try some more realistic butterflies this time to fit the realism of her. While the butterfly key is made up I wish it was real as I would love to own one.
I am going to use the concept for a darker drawing later this year.
Made with Faber Castell soft charcoal pencil.
