Butterfly Tutorial by Siluan Butterfly Tutorial by Siluan
Hit the download button if you want to see the full size!

This is the promised butterfly tutorial, and it is strictly a butterfly tutorial, you won't find anything about painting knotworks or gems here. But if you're interested in this, I have another tutorial that deals with these subjects: [link]

Also, the finished painting can be found here:

Thank you so much for sharing your expertise! This is a superb tutorial.

I'm wondering how you got the lines of the support veins to show so well. Did you do separate washes around the veins, mask them, or go over them with the right color? On the top two wings, the veins stand out lighter than the rest of the wing, while on the bottom two, the veins appear quite dark though the light area. If you simply followed your pencil lines with the brush to darken those veins, that is very delicate work! 

Thank you again! :D (Big Grin)

Everything is described in the tutorial - probably much better than I could explain it now... (as I painted the picture 2 years ago). I'm afraid there's no special trick to it, though. Just a lot of patience and painting with small brushes...
