Butterfly Fairies by SvenjaLiv Butterfly Fairies by SvenjaLiv
My version of this month's reference from #Draw-Along, provided by *bedo92000 - thanks for letting us use it! :hug: I changed it quite a bit though. I've been wanting to draw more fantasy-style stuff anyway so I turned the butterflies into two little fairies. :aww:

I didn't use any references aside from the photo. The fairies' bodies and faces are tiny; the faces are about 1cm in diameter so it was a challenge, especially with colouring pencils since they're less accurate than graphite. And I haven't really been using colouring pencils in years, because I'd kind of given up on them. I think I like them again, though! This one was a lot of fun and never got boring.

I hope you like it!
