I looked at a design of Butterfly designs on Google, and made my own. I don't trace it but try to mimic how it looks in pixel form. It can be kinda time consuming. After I make the lineart, I color it in with the colors I would like, and then I make a white outline. After that, I shade it with darker colors.
I use only Photoshop atm. I use the pencil tools and lots of layers.
I also used the Pen tool to make a straight line and bent it into curves for the parts coming out of the butterfly.
After outlining that part with white as well, I worked on making the sparkles on other layers. I had made two layers of sparkles so they could blink.
After that, I make a diagonal line, two pixels wide, going down the butterfly to give it the 'shine' effect.
This was a process of 23 layers.
I then use Image Ready, which comes with Photoshop to animate it.
It took me 24 slides to animate it. I set the speed to 0.1 seconds and have it on repeat. Every 2 slides, I make the sparkles blink.
I don't know if that helped or not, but that's my process.
Do you think you could make a plz account for this? ;u; Because dA limits the amount of thumbnails used in a deviation description to 6 for premium members and none for non-premmies ;o; And I'd still love to use this one multiple times in my deviation descriptions \o/
Hi! No, I will not make a plz account for this. That would take a lot more time for me to do, and it's hard for me to break up my pixels and keep the animation with it. Also, I don't want to have to create a bunch of emails for it either. I'm actually upset that someone already make a plz account for my pink butterfly divider without getting my permission, and never asking for it either. Also, I've not been give appropriate credit for the work, which makes me even more upset.
Thank you for asking, but considering what I've told you, I have very good reason to not make any. Thank you though.
Ah, let me be open and honest here, the one to create those plz accounts that upset you was actually myself OTL I apologize for not awaiting your permission, I will take them down as soon as I get on my computer. I was going to put your dA in the tagline, and I'm even more sorry that I haven't done that right away. You actually don't need a working email for a plz account, random letters work perfectly. Thus I saw no reason as to why you would not want plz's, considering only premium members can use thumbnails at all. I'm very sorry for not asking permission beforehand and even more so because appropriate credit was not given right away. I hope you'll accept my apologies and forgive me and not hold this against me OTL
