Dark Butterfly by tohdaryl Dark Butterfly by tohdaryl
I don't know why this was in my head when I painted it out.

What is it trying to tell me?

This piece is pretty amazing, dont know why Im writing a critique if theres nothing wrong with it, but I will anyway lol.
I love the light in it, the way it makes the skull stand out like that against the darker backround. Also great is the dripping effect effect down his shirt of both light and dark.
The way the flashes of light look like wings in great, makes him/her? lol look like and angel of death or something like that.
The skull is done great, looks very old and decayed with the skinny look it has, the light reflecting brighter on the sides is also pretty cool, really makes it jump out at you.
What do you think?

This is a very amazing piece of artwork.
I orginally thought(at first glance) it was just another butterfly drawing meant to look cute but when I took a closer look I was truly surprsie.
When I saw the skull head and the body of the skull and the "butterfly wings" had a bright and eerie effect. I thought this was a wonderful thing that the artist has made.
This art has it's own style and the colors are wonderfully chosen.
I think this has it's own beauty. A strange beauty if you will say.
The artist had a wonderful vision.
Beautifully done work.

Hello, I had sent you a note regrading if I could use Dark Butterfly in a project that will be bringing music and art together. The music that your picture would be with is Raise your Weapon by Deadmau5. The reason I'm asking you again because I haven't heard a reply yet. I was hoping to post this on Monday and I hope I can hear from you then (I'll send you another note too). Unfortunately, if I don't hear from you by Monday I'm going to have to post it with your picture on it. I would give you full credit with a link back to the picture as well as to your profile. If you do not like it, please note me and I will immediately take it down (I'm really hoping to hear from you so we do not have to go into this other option). Thank you so much for reading and there is something that is very hauntingly beautiful in your piece.. Have a great day.

really nice texture that you used with it. It makes me think of oil on water, or water running down a window maybe.
