Butterfly | Skillshare Projects




So, I cheated a bit, but I learned a lot playing around with this.  It turns out that the original image was created using a reflection tool, which I don't have and am not willing to pay for.  They also used a pen tool to trace a pencil drawing, which I didn't want to spend the time doing.  I ended up using the artistic pen brush to trace the butterfly, then copied and flipped the image to create the second side.  In retrospect, I should have colorized it before making the second side, but instead selected various segments of the whole picture to apply my own gradients and colors.  Voila!  Can I say that I actually like mine better than the original??  :)
