Your Majesty the Butterfly by Josiane-Rey Your Majesty the Butterfly by Josiane-Rey
WHAT INSPIRED ME
-----------------------------

Once upon a time there was a girl who was looking for a good image at Google to use as a banner. At one time she found an image of an elf lady and was stunned by its perfection. It was not what she was looking for but… wow! It was perfect. She couldn’t tell at the time how it was done. It was so perfect and clear like a photo and so magical and beautiful as a drawing. So she got curious and clicked on it and discovered an site called DeviantArt. In this site she learned about copyright (no, she didn’t use that image as a banner), digital painting and photo manipulation. While she was searching DeviantArt… voilà!!! She found the same lady that was portrayed in the image she loved so much but… it was different. Then, she found out what a stock picture was.

She returned at her home thinking about everything she had learnt. Then she decided that she wanted to be part of it too, but she only was going to use that stock when she was sure she won’t make a fool of herself.

The next day she opened an account at DeviantART and spent the next six month just watching and reading tutorial before she submit her first work. And only after one year that she though she was prepared to submit this piece of art that you are seeing now.

Thank you so much for all the support you give me. :heart:

This piece was inspired for two wonderful images bellow:

A lucky star dropped on earth one night, and it asked me,"What do you want? A million dollars, or a true friend?" I chose a million dollars.....because I already got you.

Thank you soooooo much dear!!! :huggle:
