Artistic Process
As I looked at all of the linework I have recieved from this artist, today, I decided it was time with the front of the alphabet; the butterfly. Certainly a different color pallet than my normal work, purples, blues, grey, red.

As I started, I knew it was a good decision. The sky, the grass, a perfect background for the butterfly, and of course, the bee. Which was challenging to finish, but, it was certainly worth it.

I have named this expression "Butterfly" as suggested by 'school zone' once more.

Now. I am not a fan of butterflies, but I did not let that stop me from doing this piece justice. I did not want to dissapoint my loyal fans either.

Lastly, this piece, I believe represents the duality of man. The butterfly, while beautiful, has dark red eyes, the telltale sign of a drug addiction... Everyone has beauty in some capacity, but everyone, has a dark side.
End Results
I am overall happy with this piece, mistakes were a rare occurrence during the creative process, my singular issue with it; the eyes, I believe I should have left the middle white, however, I received several disagreements with such. As an artist, I believe I will never be 100% happy with my work.

______Overall Rating______
5/5 Stars

I will be taking a break until my new supplies get here, as I am no longer on CQ.

I want more too.

and we break
and we make our mistakes
and if there's a reason
I'm still alive
when so many have died,
then I'm willing' to wait for it."

why is this so zen?
That which doesn't kill you, simply makes you... stranger.

Because I've been huffing hardcore memes for so long that I have no idea whether or not I'm doing this ironically

Also pretty pictures.

Is the bumblebee a friend of the butterfly? Or does he fly in the background waiting to brutally stab the butterfly with his spiked booty? Maybe the bumble represents life as a whole, you're just flying along being a butterfly then WHAM! Spikey bumblebee butt!
*Didn't just do that* As an arrow flies hitting someone in the face.
