Ok.  Here’s the painting.  I had a lot of fun experimenting with layers in this one.

Tada!  I really enjoyed making all the butterflies, especially playing with the different effects of the layers.  I even figured out how to do a screen capture.  So now you have a speed video.  You’re welcome!  If you want the full length version, you got to become a patron, but you can enjoy the speed video for free.

I also just got the postcards for my patrons.  If you want it, you got to go sign up.  And yes, I am trying to bribe you with postcards of my artwork, but hey, you get a new one each month.  Consider it a trade.

Hidden Reflection

Hidden Self

Sorry it’s been a little while, I’ve dealing with a sick household, but look!  There’s a new one.  I think my favorite layer is the glow layer.  I can create interesting effects with that ability.  This was definitely a very involved piece, but I have GLOWING BUTTERFLIES!  Hahaha!  Hopefully you enjoy it.

You can look for the PDF of all my layers and the reference photos on my Patreon page, and this is painting is available at my store.  Leave any thoughts and comments below.  I love hearing what other people see in art!

We’re up to number 4 in this series.  This has been fun to create and I’ve been starting to think of how I want to put everything together once I’ve gotten all the pieces out.  What ideas do you guys have?  I’ve been playing with the idea of putting a book together with all of these together along with my thoughts.  What do you think?  What would be something you’d like to have as a way of see all of these together?

As usual, you can buy this at my store, and then look for the reference photos and the PDF of the layers on my Patreon page.  I should have that up early next week!

I’m Back!

I know I’ve been gone for a while.  Ok, fine.  I’ve been gone for a year, but I’ve got something new for you.

Drum roll…

My Box

Tada!  This is a digital art piece.  I had lots of fun with it.  I have an idea for an new series, and no, I haven’t completely abandoned my previous idea.  It’s just on the back burner for now.  I’m not explaining the meanings of my paintings until the series is complete.  You’ll have to wait for that.  In the meantime, take your best guess, and anything you see in it, and put it in the comments below.  I love hearing what other people see.
