Green Butterflies by vladimirsangel Green Butterflies by vladimirsangel
"Loki laughed, and the butterflies gathering above them fluttered uneasily at the sound."

Watercolour paint, indian ink, coloured pencil. And a little help from the steampunk'd god of mischief.

Dedicated to ~RattytheDevilDog , who had to put up with him, and to the Asylum that spawned him, and to Dr Geof, whose sketch is on my wall.

The study sketch for this one is here: [link]

No-one. No-one would do that. Especially not near Baldur whoever heard of such a thing :P

Thankyou very much! This is the most complicated thing I've painted in a while so I'm really glad the details came through.

... And here's how it turned out! xD
So awesome - and such GREAT detail! Your use of color is very nice. Bold choices, bold result.

Thankyou! So many people I know don't think watercolours can be bold. I love how bright and clean the colours can be.

Thankyou very much :D I hope it was worth waiting for. My work goes a little slowly these days, mostly because I'm in a writing phase more than a drawing phase.

I love how subtle the coloring is. Although if I was that butterfly on his shoulder, I'd be freaking out that I was surrounded by flames.

Thankyou! (And I am seriously hoping the butterfly - a sorcerously created carnivorous breed - is flameproof)

:XD: I would definitely hope it was! Although...if it's carnivorous, imagine the havoc a flesh eating flame proof butterfly could wreak on this unsuspecting world! :evillaugh:
