Monarch by Vilva Monarch by Vilva
A gown of sorts, this time inspired by the Monarch Butterfly (one of my favorites)!!:la: I wanted this one to look more regal and elegant so that it stays true to it's name!

Since I've been asked about medium multiple times, I'll just say here that this piece (along with the rest of the butterfly series and 95% of my gallery) was drawn completely in photoshop CS4 with a wacom tablet. The paper textures are added in afterwards for the traditional feel :aww:

Also, since it's already the 22nd where I am, happy thanksgiving to those who celebrate!!:tighthug: Here, have some virtual pumpkin pie! :pie: :chew:

This design is so gorgeous and instantly recognisable as a Monarch butterfly!
I love your free style and the fact that your models actually look happy and having fun in what they're wearing!

This is really beautiful! If you don't mind me asking, how do you get the paper textures for your backgrounds?

Thank you! :hug: I actually got these a long time ago, but I remember searching for 'free paper textures' in my browser. In fact, here's a nice texture compilation site I just found through google search xD! [link]
