She's ripping wings off of butterflies by heyydaydreamer She's ripping wings off of butterflies by heyydaydreamer
"She livesin a fairy tale
Somewhere too far for us to find
Forgotten the taste and smell
Of the world that she's left behind
It's all about the exposure the lens I told her
The angles were all wrong now
She's ripping wings off of butterflies."


Brick By Boring Brick lyrics - Paramore

This is a very lovely picture.
I really like the description too. Very intriguing. :)
The butterflies are beautiful, but one thing you can do next time is have son=me of their wings up, some down, and some in mid-flight. It helps give them a sense of movement and real flight. It's a really nice technique I figured out and really animates your picture if you use it.
The colors are nice too. The light olive-green colour of her eyes and the crown of leaves contrast nicely with the orange and yellows of the monarchs.
I can't decide my opinion on the sparkles. They are a nice touch, but a bit distracting. hrm... do with them as you please.
For the most part her skin is very beautiful, but in places it looks a bit tight and unnatural. Like around her nose a bit. That is a very hard place to get it to look just right.
You are very talented with the skin, but the way you do the hair is a bit different and the styles look weird together. Her hair would look better if it was free flowing, to give this picture the feeling it should have. CallistoHime had a nice hair tutorial that I used to develop my own technique. She really has some nice notes about how to make it look natural and it's a simple technique.
If you were to change the background to a bit more of a sunset colour scheme, that would be nice instead of the nude scheme you have, but either is nice.
Just on more thing: Adding a bit more shine with a water brush to the lips would be nice. It would give them a glossy look and make them differentiate from her skin more.
What do you think?

The first thing I notice is her eyes, they are very beautiful and draw your attention. The description suits this piece very well, I think. The butterflies are also very beautiful and I really like how they seem to be just floating in midair and not really flying. This piece is very well done, nice colors and there's something about it that makes it look surreal. I would've liked to see a forest in the background, but the pink works nice, too. The sparkles in her hair add a nice touch and add to the overall look of this piece. All in all this is a very nice piece.

this is beautiful but the only thing wrong here is the nose. a proper nose SHOULD be more flat from the bottom and the sides look uneven to me. like the side on the left is bigger than the side on the right and the V of the nose should be more pointed and then smooth-en out. and one eyebrow is longer than the other. if it's a semi-side view than it's okay but if it's a front view then it looks unnatural. plz! don't hate me for this comment! i absolutely LOVE ur work but when it comes to to portraits u need more practice. you need to work on the hair more to make it look real. hey i know painting in sai or in photoshop isn't easy but i'm pointing out ur mistakes so u'll understand and work on ur mistake. anyway i think ur talented for sumone who's 18 and this has A LOT to say and it's beautiful overall!

Sorry, wrote my comment in other language. Now: it's a nice picture but I'd work a bit more on her nose and hair - to add more thin strands of hair.
