House of Cards - Butterflies by Ludi-Price House of Cards - Butterflies by Ludi-Price
A cover of sorts for my Rogue/Gambit fanfiction, House of Cards. Pencil drawing taken into Photoshop. This one didn't half give me a headache, and butterflies are such a bitch to draw - they're so damn symmetrical. The actual image took about a day and a half of solid drawing, plus a good 4 hours or so mucking around in PS. I'm proud of this one. :D

:pointr: Sketch

Proud! Well, dang, you should be. Those butterflies look real enough to touch! Makes me think of the couple that my hubby and I chased around the front yard just a couple days ago.

And Gambit, well, yeah... he's hot as always. You do know how to capture that spicey man's carnal attraction, don't you?

And Rogue... well, there's sure something spunky and 'I dare you' undeneath that softness and delicacy that you showcase in her.

Excellently done!

love the grainy textures in this, it gives it a very gritty and almost macabre atmosphere, the expressions give it a real intensity when combined with the lack of colour and the shading in the clothes which adds so much to the volume of it, love the detail in the faces, expecially the goegeously depicted eyes and hair, the folds look so real as well, lovely work :D

Something bout Rogue's hair doesnt strike me right...It looks like her hair is either lying flat against her head or she has less hair, which makes her face look...err...bigger?

Remy though....looks rather...i dunno. Worn out. Given the way the world is in HoC, no surprise. Butterflies!!! :heart:

Great work! But it strikes me as being empty in a way. I guess it's that the detail is more or less concentrated at the bottom and then it gets progressively emptier the farther up you get.
But Kickass work on the characters.

Interesting comment. I did try adding more characters at the top because I felt the same way, but when I did, the picture became too 'busy' and overcrowded, so I erased them. I feel if I had done more to fill in the empty space, there would've been too much detail. But I totally get what you're saying. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. :)
