Add the body of the butterfly (basically and oblong with a circle for a head), then two long feelers stretching out into the forehead (or two short ones if your subject has a fringe).

  • Choose a basic wing color that will show up well, for example a strong blue for a pale skin tone or an intense orange for a darker skin tone.
  • Outline the wings in the complementary color, as complementary colors make each other seem brighter.
