Butterfly Garden

Haha, lame title, I know--it's been used like a bazillion times, but I couldn't think of anything else and frankly, I don't care.

Anyway, another one of those spur of the moment whatever randomness pops into my head, pics. Actually, I did sort of have a plan before I started this, I was chatting with Phoenix and I said I wanted to draw a "butterfly picture" >.< and like three days later this idea just hit me and I started drawing it.

It ended up taking like way longer than it should have.... I started drawing this when I was visiting my old roommates and then when I got back to my moms I could not find my colored pencils anywhere and I was practically hysterical. I was flipping out and in tears at one point and then like the next day I open my closet and they're just chilling there, right in front of me. >.<

But, yeah, anyway, I'm very proud of this pic, I love it, and my androgynous person in it. When I was drawing them I originally had the idea to do a chick and then this sort of came out and they ended up being too masculin to be a woman, but too femanine to be a man, but I still call him and him. >.< I dunno why--he can be the uke-iest uke in the world, how's that.

Yer, I haven't thought of a name for him yet either, so.... yeah, I might use him later for something. ^_~

Androgynous Guy © ME!!!

    Ooooh, I like it! I love the colors and the blending of them! Very, very beautiful. And the butterflies look amazing!
    The only thing which irks me omehwta is his mouth - I think you should've made it a little bigger, but otherwise it looks just fine. Smile Great work! Big Smile

      Yeah I know, it bugs me too, I have to work on lips. I tried making them bigger but he looked weird with them and I wanted to keep it more inbetween a guy and a chick so I was trying to avoide huge lips too. >.<

        Aaah, I see what you mean. Smile Well, he looks awesome anyway, so it's not that much of a big deal. Great work! Smile

    The coloring in this is GORGEOUS! Finding those pencils payed off, m'dear. Big Smile And your androgynous guy is lovely! He reminds me of one of my lil babies. :3
    I feel your pain with losing stuff, only, my roommate and I have come to the conclusion that our house EATS stuff. is very troublesome. Perhaps there are some pixies giggling in the basement somewhere with a stash...

      *laughs* Thank you! I wanted to put a lot of effort into this one. I find that when I actually want to do a pic, just for the hell of it and I'm not forced to do something, those are always the best. ^_^

      And some of those pixies must live here too because things have been dissappearing left and right!

        Hehe, I'm the same way. When I just get the urge to draw, I get the best results. When I force myself I want to tear apart the sketchbook. XD

        Damn pixie infestations. *shake fist*
