  • Amongst the Butterflies
    Completed in 2011
  • My year's work was based around the theme I created from the word 'outburst', meaning a sudden release of energy. In this project I wanted to do a mixed media piece that combined my surrealism inspired butterfly illustrations with a photoshopped photograph I took of my sister. In the final artwork I wanted to achieve an interesting artwork that had depth and detail. 
  • Surrealist inspired butterflies I drew to go into my artwork. Focussed mainly on the theme of adventure or mystery. 
  • A photoshoot I had with my beautiful sister as the subject for the girl amongst the butterflies. These are my few favourites.. 
  • My final choice of portrait. 
  • A charcoal effect applied through Photoshop to create the final figure. 
  • Added the butterflies in digitally... 
  • Final Composition after adding butterflies and printing. 
  • Extra butterflies added for 3D effect. 
  • Final framed artwork. Sorry for the bad quality image.
