Made for the "Butterfly" contest at :iconmanip-contest:

Proudly won the First Place Advance :iconmanip-contest-award:

I started to feel tired with fairies and elves related stuffs, so this time I came up with a different idea. It was such a hard work back then to play with the liquify tool just to bring a slight smile to the mod, but it's all worth my try. I also decided to manipulate only half of the butterfly as I found my little magician somehow enigmatic that way, and fortunately enough, it's accepted by Mrs Donna.

This is a cute idea, and very well manipulated, it all looks good together, background, foreground and very-foreground :D - love these colours together.
The design on her face looks very nice too, I love the little wing on her left eye, this looks great - well done :)

OMGosh my dear sweet Melanie. everytime i come back to this i just can't believe what you have done to it. i went and checked the model out to see what you ment by the mouth and you did it girl. you made those lips smile. :) i also saw you changed the models hair. WOW what a difference. it is fun to see that taking different parts from different models can come up with something as wonderful as this. i looked very closely to the butterfly on the face and it looks just like it was painted on. unbelieveably wonderful. i just can't find anything that needs improvement. :heart:

Thank you :D. This piece is by far one of my most favourite, and truly which I had to put the greatest effort. But it brings me so much fun. I was like changing a dozen of hairstyles until I finally found this blond, and it was this hairstyle that made the Magician idea burst out :). I have a bad habit of playing around with no initial idea and waiting for the unexpected things to show up in my mind, and this work is the most succesful play-and-wait :P
