Butterfly And Flower by Escente Butterfly And Flower by Escente
This is a small whimsical fable I've been drawing sporadically for a couple of months.
The comic was inspired by a Chinese poetic tune called 蝶恋花 (which roughly translates into "butterfly in love with flower"). I've always been a sucker for ancient Chinese poetry because they are full of sad stories >w> And I love tormenting my kokoro with these things.

Drawing this comic taught me many skills, such as controlling line weight and varied panelling. I'm still a noob though so gomen for any mistakes. m(u__u)m

This story is also an analogy for the real background story behind my characters (which is so long and difficult to draw I want to cry just thinking it). So in the meanwhile I'm just coming up with parallel short stories based on random ideas I come across in life. :iconorzplz:

Drawn on IllustStudio and CLIP Paint EX

What an amazing piece of work!  The way you drew their expressions was beautiful, and a bit heartbreaking!  You are very talented!
