Here is a quick colouring of one of my recent Butterfly armoured maiden sketches. The basic sketch was pencil on paper which I scanned in then used photoshop to layer things up. I used some photos of forests and jungles jumbled up as the background and played with some colour jitter in my brushes which is quite fun. Apart from the base sketch below, there is one with that sketch as the multiply layer and then a variant with the sketch run through a 'cutout' filter. I like the brighter metallic colours that the Butterfly culture uses with the dangling gems and geometric engraving. The sketch is very front-on and not as dynamic as I would like, but she has a decent level of believability going on.
