I pretty much started this drawing to try out a new art paper and also for the enchanted vision theme show "Forgotten Summer" but the more i worked on it the artwork took a title of it's own and titled it 'The Lovely Rose' , so i will be doing something different for the EV theme
As for the pose i used myself this time as reference, wanted to keep it really simple and didn't want to add too many things to it.
Based On Hans Christian Andersen Fairytale "The Nightingale"
Aceo limited edition prints from my website [link] My9th ACEO in my fairytale series. Completed with watercolor&watercolor pencils on 2'5 x 3'5 Arches hotpress watercolor paper.
The Emperor of China learns that one of the most beautiful things in his empire is the song of the nightingale,when the emperor is given a bejeweled mechanical nightingale, he loses interest in the real bird,and the real bird returns to the forest, the mechanical bird breaks down and the emperor is taken ill,when the real nightgale learns of this he returns to the emperor Death is so moved by the nightingale's song that he departs and the emperor recovers.
I used a female Emperor for my version of the story ,one reason it has been said Hans Christian Andersen wrote "The Nightingale" for Swedish opera singer Jenny Lind who he fell in love with. And i wanted to tie together part of the fairytale and true story
Plus when i saw maria J william new stock i loved it and wanted to use it for one of my fairytale aceos. Many thanks to Maria for her awesome stock

Inspired by Kumonryu koi, Asagi koi and Hi Utsuri koi. For a long time i wondered why a lot of peoples have this fish as a tattoo. Now i understand. Because this animal is very nice and it has many different and beautiful species. *_*
Of course this one doesn't exist, but i was inspired.
Edit: Here is the whole drawing with signature and better colors.
This week i got pretty inspired and i drew several stuff at once. I was like weeeeeee INSPIRATION! Black & White is my thang, thanks for that really. Kung Fu Vampire is a good artist too, that's why.
Let me tell you a lil story about this: It's drawn on a A4 paper, a format that doesn't exist in North America (or maybe it does but it's hard to find). So I brought my A4s in Canada to keep me inspired and as i don't have a scanner, i used the one at my internship. So the paper is cut and my signature too (A4 is too big for a letter format), and this scanner made it very light and killed the colors. Sooo i uploaded it on Instagram with a filter to make it less white and more dark. So there you go, until i find a better scanner
