    Excellent work, very Gothic. Background colours are obliterating some of the butterfly. Great!!!

  • Thanks Mike. I love blending hand-drawn art with computer enhancement.

    A very ornate design and the colours are beautiful. I like the metalic effect of the outline too. Not too sure about the red eyes, they seem to draw the eye away from the overall design which really deserves the attention. Nice work.

  • Thanks Marion! The eyes are my tribute to the Mothman. He does try so hard.

    Amazing – I agree with the 1st comment – transpose this onto a Tshirt – your creativity and colours on this would work a treat…

  • I took your advise, I’ve now got a few shirts up.

    That is unreal, the butterfly stands out so well :)

  • Thanks. It was pencil drawn then scanned and recolored.
