This is a little flat doll I made for a friend. She owns one of Marina Bychkova's amazing Enchanted Dolls. You should know that I am a fanatic admirer of the beautiful works of this artist. So I was thrilled when Gita (or should I say Tiggy) asked to make a 2D portrait of Butterfly-Io. It took me quite a long time...in part because I am rather slow, in part because I painted the character on two sides. (wings included). For this piece, I used Copic Markers and pencils on Fabriano Artistico Hot Press watercolor paper.
