Moths by dahlig Moths by dahlig
This artwork was done for a "20 steps to extreme realism" workshop done for ImagineFX issue 40.
Nothing really too surprising about the concept - the point was to push the realism as far as I could.

Done in Photoshop CS. Video making-of can be seen on the issue 40's DVD. :-)

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-12-13
Moths by `blackeri is a perfect blend of realism and fantasy. The amount of detail put into the moths is astonishing. The feeling of breaking out of your shell and metamorphosis, plays into this deviation. It's spectacular to look at! ( Suggested by Tihmily2007 and Featured by archanN )

Looks like a younger version of River Song from Doctor Who...

Also, excellent work! I really love the skintones you have going on, and the hair looks like it must have been really fun to draw.
