Collaboration with Aaron Sikstrom :iconseethrou:

He did the lineart and I colored it. :)

Original lineart can be seen here
Colored in Photoshop and Corel Painter.

Aaron's done these collaborations with several different digital artists; usually with people with very different styles than his. It's a brilliant idea and I had a blast working on my end of it. :) It turned out to be a lot harder than I thought it would be, but I really enjoyed it. It made me step out of my comfort zone a bit, and try new things. And the result, I think, is awesome. :D

Thanks for working with me, Aaron -- and I’m so sorry I left you hanging for so long!

Great job, she looks crazy! The wings look like dead leaves to me, which is pretty cool. I don't understand some of the lines on her body though...does she have scars? Overall wonderful picture, keep it up

Absolutely. I know you've been in that mag for a while. It's my fave. I carry it around with me in my bag until the next one comes out. I finally bought a subscription. They are like $20 each here- but that's nothing when it comes to love! :D Keep being awesome @ your art!

Your beautiful artwork has been featured in my journal. Because this is a collaboration, I posted your friend's thumbnail instead of this one because he has gotten fewer favs and comments on it.
If it bothers you in any way, let me know and I will remove it.

Never seen a butterfly or moth I didn't think was pretty. My favorites are "vegetable moths" those little white ones that don't so much fly as flop around all over the place in the air. They're fun to chase.

... yes, I am crazy.
