Acrylic Pour Butterfly

This video was requested by Deb from the community – a wispy abstract butterfly made from digital acrylic pour painting and lined with messy black ink. I tried a few different versions and ultimately decided to trace a butterfly outline from an image from unsplash, to use as a template. Then I filled the “wings” with acrylic pour texture from my acrylic pour brush set, and used the Liquify tool to shape it. Then I used a standard procreate ink pen to loosely outline the butterfly shape, followed by a bit more liquify to finish off the ink layer.
