Surrealist inspired artwork.
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...
