Ageha by tickledpinky Ageha by tickledpinky
I am sleepy><;

I was inspired by a memory of an old memory.
I tried to post a site but its gone.
I was struck by the butterfly tattoo:blushes:

tool: SAI and photoshop7

----EDIT---
Other than the fact that her arm is too long, the mangled look is correct.

She is in truth a butterfly who came to see someone she loved. Now because of the rain she got injured but came anyway and took a human form.

This is similar to the Japanese fable of the Trapped Crane.
It was with this situation in mind that drew this and because I thought that any more gore would make it not so pretty, the overall effect was made difficult to understand.

I was trying to bring an expression of finally meeting the one you loved in this piece.

ah... how embarrasing....

I remembered the title of the Movie. It was Swallow tail. The girl in that movie had a similar tattoo and I got my inspiration from that. But this piece and that movie have little else in common.

I love the different types of colours you've used in her hair. It's really eye catching. :3 The sad emotion is caught so well. I love the effect the rain adds to the emotion of the picture.

This picture is really wonderful. The colours and the smooth steam of water on her body gives the piece lots of depth. But the position of the fingers on her left hand are a little bit exaggerated.

All in all, the picture is brilliant. I adore your work. :)
