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. ^_~

    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*

        ^_^

    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! :)
