Free-For-All: Butterfly Viper

The FaunaFocus Free-For-All is an art competition that is open to all and is intended to foster community-based learning while celebrating successes and encouraging artists to improve from discipline and criteria.

August 2019’s Free-For-All featured the butterfly viper.

Shadowind digitally painted a literal representation of the butterfly viper with a winged, colorful snake floating amongst a delicate array of flowers. With both butterfly wings and flowers referenced from those found in Africa, a great deal of research and detail went into creating this saturated composition.
