I’ve been wanting to get back into playing with digital collage and was inspired by this line from Kacey Musgraves’s song “Mother”. My tablet broke when I was finishing this portrait (!!!) so I ended up improvising using my mouse and that preset Photoshop “butterfly brush” to click the masked out butterfly shapes in Kacey’s hair! I ended up really liking the results.
(click to see the whole illustration, I went with a really long format!)
