Stunning. The flowers are magnificent and the butterfly is really hard to tell that it's not a photograph.

I admire your skill with digital painting. :D This almost looks as though you used a traditional medium to create it.

Thank you :) I tend to work in much the same fashion as using traditional media (which was where I cut my teeth in the long gone days of my youth). It's nice to have the flexibility of digital, though. The undo button is my best friend lol.

The detail... THE DETAIL!! Although I don't like butterflies close up, I still adore their colours and patterns... and that is why you are a master at capturing the true beauty of your subjects :worship:

I love the delicacy and detail of this. I can feel the butterfly's 'fur' and the powder on it's wings, and the cool soft petals.

Thank you for your comments, Sandi. This was a very enjoyable piece to work on--the butterfly was exacting, which I like, and the flowers were especially fun, just pushing the paint around to shape them before detailing. I love using the smear tool for some things! :D

Frequently when an artist enjoys the work on a painting you can tell, because it seems to come out so well. There just seems to be an extra fluid, pulled together and even happy feel to the whole thing.

And my mother who was saying that there is no real art made by computer O.o ! I'll show this to her :X ! Amazing !!! Realy great ! I realy love it !

Wow, thanks! I hope she likes it. Digital art is a fantastic way to express yourself...for me, it's the only way. I just don't have the time/room/patience with the mess of traditional art anymore...this has given me a chance to paint again :) I hadn't for several years, till I found Painter IX and bought a tablet.

Thanks for your comments :)

This is so good, it's just amazingly well painted. It looks realistic, and has such a soft touch with your brushstrokes. Really like your use of contrast to bring out your subject

I removed this pic from my messages, cause I thought it was just a bug pic. But now that I took a look through you're gallery i noticed many pics i hadn't noticed before, cause i had removed them thinking it was a photo. But this one is deffenitely the most photo looking of them! Wow, I'm so amazed of the realistic feel of it. But there is something thou, can't put my finger on exacly what, that shows that it is drawn. But I love it =^_^=
