I am so glad to see your creation finishing relatively well. The icy tones support beautifully your fantastic composition: it looks like a jewel. A real work of art.

I love how these butterflies/moths have been transformed into an intricate and mysterious mask. Like something out of Cirque du Soleil. The nighttime coloration adds to the mood of fantasy and ritual. Strong image.

Wow, beautiful. Like the almost Escher-like combination of all these creatures and the blue on black really works here. Great job!
