Yūko the Butterfly

This is one of my older works, but I still love the way it turned out. This was a gift to my sister, who is a big fan of Yūko Ichihara from the manga xxxHolic. I noticed that Yūko is often pictured with butterflies, so the first thing that came to mind for me was Alice in Wonderland, and her conversations with the caterpillar while he would just smoke the day away. This piece is a blend of both vector work as well as digital painting, and I think that my favorite thing about it was picking out the color palette. I loved all the different colors that I could get to work in this piece. I plan on experimenting more with work like this in the future.
