Lament by Adarhi Lament by Adarhi
"Butterflies"

But my heart keeps telling me is the perfect lie
                You rip me up with every last goodbye
I don't wanna say forever
                 It's just another now or never
So hard don't let me trust these butterflies
                 I don't trust these butterflies-flies
'Cause they fool me every time

Lament: a passionate expression of grief or sorrow.

Well this took quite a while, especially with drawing the mane and tail. Before I went ahead and made the hair all go together it looked different. However I think I like the blended / smudged hair more than single lines of hair o.o I'll keep practicing with it to see which is better. 
I feel like I got the correct coloring in, highlights in the right spot (or close enough). I can see where I made my mistakes, and I know what not to do next time... xD But anywho, here's my pieve "Lament" and I hope you guys like it :3 ♥♥

The struggle is real Waaaah! eventually we'll get it :3 I think my biggest issue is getting the right type of brush settings ._.

I am using a soft brush with basic dynamics at a hardness of 050. I tried making my own brushes, but I didn't get the same effect as most tutorials show ;-;
But, with enough patience, some of it looks good~
