Butterfly of Ill-Omen by Leyna-art Butterfly of Ill-Omen by Leyna-art
"Red butterflies are ill omens. Get too close and they will summon deadly fiends. Blue butterflies lead to good fortune!." Final Fantasy X

Lulu from Final Fantasy X. The background is meant to be the Forest of Macalania from the game.

Just a quick fun painting to get back into the habit of painting, and to celebrate finishing the game.

I used *NikxStock 's lovely stock as a pose reference
[link]

Corel Painter X and Wacom tablet.

Edit: 17th Jan 2010. Finally revised this. I repainted the background and butterflies and fixed up a few minor issues. The background is still rather sketchy, but I'm less inclined to wince when looking at it :).
The original painting is here, for comparison: [link]

Edit: 9th March 2010 Thank you so much to *Miyukitty and ^rydi1689 for the DD!

Butterfly of Ill-Omen by *leyna55 The suggester wrote: "This delicate, detailed piece has a uniformly cool color scheme, which immediately draws my eye to the one anomaly - the red butterfly. Lulu's bewitching stare seems drawn to it as well, although her stoic expression gives us no clues to whether or not she fears its inauspicious presence... An eerie and beautiful tribute to Final Fantasy X!" ( Suggested by Miyukitty and Featured by rydi1689 )

Thank you! Yes, her costume is lovely (though I'm convinced she uses a little helpful magic to keep it on during all that fighting and walking :D)

Thank you! I was really happy with the way the colours turned out in this (more or less by accident, which a smidge of instinct). Now if only I can learn to do it more consistently :)
