Your welcome and thank you. I'm trying to draw just a butterfly although I don't think it looks as real as that.

Lol to be honest it's pretty average, just requires heaps of patience I think that is why people think it's really good, just because it looks complicated. To me the butterfly looks more like a moth XD haha but thanks anyways ;D

erm if you want to sell this print, you might want to make this picture NOT available to download in the original size (which is 3479x2550)...and also put a DA trademark on it OR make the picture very small (something like 600px*450px canvas)...just so people can't download the original size picture on their own and print them out without even paying....lolz

Hehe I don't mind :) I only make my deviantART account to share my art, so if anyone use my art I am very happy, I don't mind. The print is there for an option but I don't expect anyone to get it because personally I find it quite expensive Xp Main reason to make a big file is because I really like looking at other peoples art and seeing all the details so I thought I'd do the same for others that want to enjoy my work :)

Oh, sorry... it's because I feel like I'm cheating my way into more views by submitting it into groups...so I decided to take it down. Sorry for any inconvenience

I really don't see how that's 'cheating' for views...you are sharing your artwork with people who are interested in viewing it. :hmm:

well, it's your choice, all i can say is i'm disapointed i can't showcase all the hard work that went into your piece. :(
