Ginger, this is lovely, great colors

Jane Grant Tentas said...

lovely composition! But not a butterfly species I've ever seen here in NH :)

You are right Jane, there are no butterflies like this in NH. But there are in Brazil. I have seen them and they are stunning. Since the whole illustration is a composite of scenes from a book I illustrated the characters are partly fictional, but the cycle is accurate.

Hey Ginger... You've done it again! This is so beautiful and wonderful! Wow! That butterfly is terrific. Love your caterpillar character. Great expression. That cocoon is so cool. Love the silky look and the texture. Nice!

Heh, amazing work on the cocoon itself. I looked at a few while considering my own work and thought 'naa, looks too hard!'

But you did it with ease :)
