Butterfly Digital Painting

A digital painting of the book character Violet in her Halloween costume, as described in the book. This was made when I was trying out several different styles for the character, but it ended up being more realistic and detailed than the book series required. However, it was my first painting made entirely in photoshop and it was fun to discover what the tool can do. Skin and different materials, such as glitter and sequins, were an interesting challenge that I was happy to figure out how to portray.
