Butterfree by Landylachs Butterfree by Landylachs
This is a request made for :iconyukito-chan: :hug: Hope you like it! ^^

I don't think I've drawn Butterfree before, but drawing it definitely made me appreciate its design and why it's one of ~yukito-chan's favorite Pokémon 8D

I had a lot of fun coloring this one, think it was good practice. I think since Butterfree is made from primitive shapes it helped me focus on trying to convey the roundness of its head and body.

I really had never realized how cute it was until drawing this. xD

Butterfree is from the Pokémon games from Nintendo
Made with Gimp
2010

Butterfree is one of the cutest bug types of pokemon IMO. The coloring is so nice and soft it looks like you water colored it, you never cease to impress me LadyLachs!

The soft colors in this look awesome ^_^

Butterfree is SO close to being my favorite Bug pokemon. I trained one named Desla and used her to sweep Infernape, Groudon and Darkrai in one match. :lol:

Ahh~ When I was a kid, I was disappointed that there wasn't a real butterfly that looked like this. :)

Thanks! I was going for officially with this one. :) Figured if it was just a head shot like the others, it'd be pretty silly looking xD

^___^ You're welcome! I'm glad you like it! 8D

Hahahaha yes you've made me realize how massively cute it is xDDD It's eyes are at such a cute angle they could name that degree after butterfree, its hands are so little and cute, it's body is basically made up of two spheres which automatically makes it cute ... everything about it is pretty much made up of cute xD

I will probably take a break from Pokémon unless someone really wants a particular one. xD I have some other things I want to color and also need to get started on your painting! 8D

They are really good practice and fun to do, though, so who knows!

Now you're just being an art machine xD :hug:

I love how you put subtlety in there, the violet to teal feet and soft lavender wings. It really works with butterfree :D

haha noo I did Luxray a day or two ago and just didn't upload it until tonight xD

Thank you! :hug: I was experimenting with the subtlety with the coloring, I'm happy it fits Butterfree. :)

Now I can go to sleep xD
