I wish the shadow of the upper wing was shown on both sides. But, perhaps this was excluded in order to fit in the bounding box? Or was it to show the same butterfly in a sideways position?
Either way...it's a very beautiful design.
As much as I'd like to say that the asymmetrical nature of the faded wings has some fabulous reasoning behind it...it really was more of a lark on my part. Mostly due to my own, quirky personal preference. That, and the shadow wing was lifted and redrawn from one of my larger pencil pieces, in which I'd forgotten to draw the other side. It's true that it wouldn't fit in the box if the larger wing was on both sides, but it never even occurred to me to try it. In retrospect, I feel a little silly about the whole thing. :\
I also wanted to extend another thanks for all the kindness in the comment boxes-- my heart has been thoroughly warmed. And for all the votes...wow. Imagine my surprise! Thank you all so, so much.
