I saw this sketch by Evol, fell in love, pestered him to let me wall it and he kindly sent me a high-res scan of the sketch. I half-started vectoring the outlines and proceeded to sit on it for ages. Then lately I felt kind of emo and decided to finish it. Smacked a gradient on some background textures because I'm big on gradients recently, not really sure why. Soon after Gidders convinced me to send the WIP over to her and she put in the awesome skin shading, then I tweaked the eyes a bit, added some light shading for the dress and smacked on the branches. Gids also pulled out the wall's name. So it was a three-way collab really.

Paper texture from bashcorpo.dk. Sky overlay texture from devART. Branches stock from Stock.XCHNG. And again, lineart by the awesome Evol. Thanks <3 and to potat0rs for checks and support <3

    That's a beautiful sketch indeed :D Nice job on walling it, I like the kinda sketchy look of the vector lines. The colours and textures look great. I esp like the branches overlay, it kinda reminds me of those veins in butterfly wings as well ^^ Though I can't help but think the black tip of the butterfly wing is a bit too dark and bold and stands out too much and takes away from the sketchiness feel.. maybe use the reddish brown colour you used for her face and hair outlines instead and make it not as solid...
