Butterfly Maiden by chasing-butterflies Butterfly Maiden by chasing-butterflies
A little something I worked on yesterday for fun :D Turned out so nicely I'm going to offer it as a print as well!

I purchased this rendered background by mmebuterfly on renderosity, but it was a little small for what I wanted to do and so I painted in a lot more of the sky on all four sides and added more details to the ground.

The elf maiden is a stock photo from *Lisajen-stock. I kept the clothing pretty much the same as it fit well with what I wanted to do, but the body, hair and flute are completely repainted.

Butterfly Maiden by `chasing-butterflies is a beautiful example from the digital mixed media galleries. Perfect lighting, and a gorgeous atmosphere make this a wonderful work of surreal - fantasy. ( Suggested by enchanted-black-rose and Featured by cosmosue )
