Painted Moths by Lichida Painted Moths by Lichida
Happy 11th Birthday DA! :)

This is my entry for this super inventive contest. I loved it the first moment I read about it and I'm excited to have this piece be a part of so many wonderfully creative submissions.

The picture was a real challenge, especially because of the strange assortment of lines, but I have to say this was one of the funnest pictures I've done. :D

EDIT: I realized I had a fatal mistake of perspective on the butterfly that was sitting on her lips and immediately decided to change it. Sorry for the slip-up. >.<

PS. Thank you to everyone who has fav'd and/or commented on this. Your support is awesome. You are the best!

thanks :D i thought i should ask 1st considering it is yours to begin with! ;P ill put your name and say its yours in the description with the link for yours when its done. :) and sure ill send you a link when its done! im sort of turning it into a pop-art style drawing as the shading on the face will become seperate sections and will be multi-coloured. Although the main areas like the eyes, hair and lips will stay the same! I hope i can do it justice as yours is a high standard! :D

I know it was not an insult but the comment was not helpful or important for the artist ...you should first say something about the drawing ...critique or something...everything else should be secondary ...

there are tons of unhelpful comments on this page, if the artist was specifically looking for critique they would have checked that option off when uploading. Besides, since this piece is a DD I doubt anyone would have the time or patience to read through the flood of comments.
