Paint the Town Lovely by LuxDani Paint the Town Lovely by LuxDani
I am totally in love with this style.
Simple. Colourful. Edgy. Grungy.
Hellllllyes.

So this is an entry for :iconanimals-of-color:, their Valentine's themed contest: any animal that is/made pink and purple.

This morning I painted a different entry. Then once I scanned it, adjusted it in photoshop, I realized that I hated it.
Looked like a juvenile colour-me, with a really fruity theme. Therefore I scrapped it.

This is much more suited to me. :heart:

I love the paints dripping from it's wings, and the little white butterflies coming from it

I love how these color combine so well together! The butterfly's shape adds even more harmony and softness to it. Great!

I like the two little butterflies that are outlines in the trails. The butterfly itself looks awesome.

Oh wow. I literally said, 'It's so pretty' out loud when I saw this. Absolutely GORGEOUS work. I love the grunge look, especially since I've never seen it done on a butterfly before.

I'm doing all right. Lots of stuff's been going on in the past few months (which I won't go into here,) but I'm still alive and somewhat-sane, haha.

I like the splatters. Did you use watercolor?
Reply
:iconluxdani:
LuxDani Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thanks. :)
I used mostly watered-down acrylics for the splatters, with a little bit of purple watercolour because I didn't have the paint to mix that kind of colour with acrylics.

This is amazing, I love it. The colours just work so well with the design and the patterning. It would make a great tattoo :D Good luck with the contest

Usually I'm not a girly-colour kind of person, but I'm rather fond of this. :)
I'm still not quite sure about the little white "negative space" butterflies though...should they be black? White? Non-existent?

ArtofBekSutton Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
To be honest, I am not sure they need to be there, they work, but I would say they are not necessary. I also wanted to point out that it looks a bit like a tiger face in the wings of the butterfly :D it looks pretty awesome :D
