That wip is dooone ahhh..so slow at painting and school is so much busier this sem ;-; 

This is for :iconraru-tan: 's composition challenge..uh this one was supposed to be for last month..but I got busy oops; 
Symmetrical composition..hmm 
I don't think I had much trouble with this. The subject is symmetrical, with hints of differences and I tried focusing more on the objects around her being asymmetrical but balanced 

Those butterflies were hell to paint :'D 

Composition challenge: 

Composition ChallengeCHALLENGE RULES:
- you must do ALL 12 list items in order to be featured (See Raru-tan's first challenge journal for more info)
- list items to not need to be done one each month, though it is recommended
- in the description of your artwork for this challenge, link back to this entry so that I see it and know to feature it when the time comes
- you are welcome to use this as a reference without participating in the challenge, if you do so, linking back to this is not necessary


This challenge was made by :iconRaru-tan: Their features -- >
I was tagged in their challenge and really struck me as an interesting challenge to do. A lot of people ask me about my inspirations and how I learn composition. Here are a few of my inspirations that helped me improve my composition. Hopefully they help you too. :) Most of these were taken from my favorites. 
Keep in mind that some of these utilize multiple compo
  2017 Composition ChallengeUpdate: Hey guys! I've created an FAQ to hopefully answer some questions you may have on how to follow the challenge so that you can be featured at the end!  2017 Composition Challenge FAQ
I've also changed the rule about going in order being optional. Submitting them in order is now required because with the amount of people expected to participate (which I'm so blown away by, wow!), it's just going to be hectic for me to sort out the features if they're not in order.
Thank you in advance for understanding, I hope you still plan to join!
Since I couldn't find an existing challenge like this, I've put together my own! Not all the things on the list are composition elements, but they certainly will give you a bit of direction on how to set up your piece.
I will be doing one of these each month, and I'd like to invite my watchers and anyone who is seeing this, do try

This turned out really wonderful! I love how even though the artwork is fairly symmetrical, the subtle differences in areas make it look less so. Very interesting. I also love all the details, the colours and the lighting. Really amazing!
The composition challenge seems like a lot of fun, should give it a try. Thanks for sharing it!

The finished version looks so stunning! Even with how nice the WIP was to begin with.
I love that the shading in her hair and some of the fabric looks a bit like crystal shards. Really pretty effect! And the fact that there are so many butterflies and such a variety is amazing.
