Butterfly at space's edge by AxelMedellin Butterfly at space's edge by AxelMedellin
Well, this took longer than expected, coming and going...

This is another of the ideas I got from the contest, butterfly on a skull by

I'm pretty sure this wasn't what you had in mind, man, but it's what my subconcious mind come up with from those couple of words, hope you like it.

I've just discovered I love painting rust...

that's a beauty, I like it very much :)
seems like a rat/squirrel skull, which is fine by me, since it rocks.

That's the last thing that would come to my mind if I thought 'Butterfly on a skull', but it's still very interesting in your interesting style so I'm sure nobody will mind!

Eee, that's definitely a unique twist on that simple description! My brain woulda instantly gone for the mundane if I'd gotten that as a criteria for a drawing. XD Your imagination rules!

Now that is one unique interpretation: I have no clue what path your mind followed on this, but I'm not complaining. Ignoring the obvious (crazy amount of details, awesome looking wings, etc), I like how you managed to stay true to the description by putting a butterfly on the top chest bubble (or at least I think thats a butterfly...), and then the skull inside the suit. I suppose you could say that the butterfly is on a skull, as the suit looks like a skull if you remove the arms, legs, and wings (a long skull, but one none-the-less). Or maybe I've just spent too much time staring at this picture. Either way, I think this is one of your best pieces so far: its got a nice pose, I like the color scheme (especially on the lowest part of the wings), and come on, its a skeletal astronaut; whats not to like?

:D thanks for a very thoughtful comment, I really appreciate the time you took staring at the pic... I hadn't seen the butterfly in the chest, I had gone for the wings as butterfly-shape... I wish I had thought of the other simbol...

this is beautiful... the wings, and torso are all different shades of a rustish color mixed with a little bronze and copper... or so it seems to me... good job... :blackrose:
