For *nyanko-chan's contest! <-- which I lost horribly! And now for #Ocart's contest!

I have no cats anymore, because my mom doesn't like their smell... :( I'm wondering if this is even a valid entry at this point. ^^; But it was a fun piece nonetheless! Those butterflies were all drawn and colored one by one, as well as the sakura flowers.

Eri and Naru are sister computers as their owners are brothers. They are both feline, but Eri is more advanced, giving her a human body, while Naru is still a kitten. Both are characters from my webmanga. :aww: I hope you like them!

*******
Series: A.illusions
Characters: Eri-hime and Naru
Materials: Bond Paper, Inks, Photoshop
EST: 20-30+ hours (maybe more)

Gotta love those swirls and vibrant red tones. And I quite like the butterflies as well (they're in simple colours, but... I don't know, they've just caught my eye).

Thank you! I'm not sure what it is about the butterflies either but... when I first painted the as realistic butterflies, it didn't look very good. ^^; I finally settled for simple colors when I finished coloring Eri-hime. :D

I guess sometimes, it's just the simplest things that work best. :)

She is both, yes... but like any cat, she can be temperamental. :meow:

I miss Eri. She's still here with me though, couldn't bear to throw her away after years of use. She did help me through college after all. I forgot to tell you though, Naru, her sister was one of the computers that was stolen along with Yakumo when I still had my Internet Cafe. ^^

Well, Naru is still somewhat alive... I have her keyboard here with me. :meow:
