Metamorphosis by katat0nik Metamorphosis by katat0nik
Medium: Prismacolor colored pencil, ink
Size: 2" x 3.5" (business card size)

This was my first business card size drawing. It is supposed to be a Day of the Dead/Dia de los Muertos butterfly that is guided home by the candles' lights. As you can see, she is a happy little butterfly...and she casts a heart shaped shadow.

Indeed it is, I learned a lot about Day of the Dead a few years ago and have been fascinated with it ever since then :D

Wow, I'm a big fan of skeletons and roses, this would definitely make a memorable business card. I love it. To improve this piece I would say, more detail in the skull. Either making it look like a real skull or one of the crazy Day of the Dead skulls would be AWESOME.

Thank you so much! I loved working on this, but that skeleton is so small this was the best I could do at the time on the face, it's just a few millimeters wide :D And you're right, a Day of the Dead skull would've been awesome!!

Blissfully composed and energetically rendered; the subtle suggestion of a heart formed by the darker blue of the background and the inverted hearts in the flames are hallmarks of a born designer; perfect balance and captivating details...
