I really love the art; it's very inspiring and unique. I thought the signature makes this look more legit and like a true famous artist has done it. They kinda remind me of those tinker bell fairies except in a more vivid and realistic view. I thought the stamp of authenticity was not very necessary to put four stamps; one on each of the girls. However still stunning work you have inspired me to draw. I hope to see more of your art in the future. Can't wait to see what else you have in store. Keep up the good work ;)!
What do you think?

This is an awesome piece of art. The hair is stunning especially the way it seems to flow. The faces could use a little work. Maybe you should make them a little more narrow and long. The feet could use a little practice too. I love the designs on the dresses They suite the butterflies perfectly. The moth looks good as does the Blue Morpho. My favorites are definitely the Tiger Swallowtail and the Monarch But the originality is obvious. It is stunning, elegant, and Beautiful. c: Keep up the good work Vilva! :D (Writing a Critique is hard) c: But it's worth it
