I love these DTIYS challenges because it allows me to draw while looking at amazing examples without me having to think too hard about it. It's very relaxing.
I'm still on the fence if I should add some colour since the original has such a lovely colourscheme, but I'm afraid to mess it up.
Oh well, there's no hurry so I'll leave it like this for now.

Thank you so much!
There are always challenges to find here. Just search with #dtiys or #drawthisinyourstyle and you'll come across lots of deviantions and journals that mention it. Sometimes it takes a bit of searching to find out who did the original. Most of the time they are hosted on Instagram but it's not exclusive (except when there are actual prizes to win).
If you have any question don't hesitate to ask.
OMG! Although the original image is really awesome ... your version is absolutely the next level!!! Much more than endlessly beautiful!!! Do you have her email address or phone number, pleeeaaase???
The butterflies would look lovely coloured, though I don't think the whole image needs colour - it's already stunning.
But I trust your judgement on this - you've proven time and again that you know pretty precisely what you are doing :)
