The ideas are from my Imagination. I use photo refrence to make sure the butterfly is accurate ,like how the butter fly lands or looks. The design, color/lighting, and layout are most often made up or inspired from photos.
The butterflies are part of The Dream carrier series. The dream carriers series are based on aborginal belieif that their most sacred creature is a butterfly. many Aboriginals believe that after death, the butterfly carries their soul to their after life of dreams. Aboringal believe each marking on the butterflies repesents a soul being carried to dream world.
Well their is no clear answerr to this but if I were to genralize, it would be roughly :
9x12 inch 8-30 hours
16x20 inch 15-50 hours
24x36 inch 50+
the more complex ( full back ground, full color, ect..) the picture the longer the times are.
