Who spilled that F butterfly food again by STelari Who spilled that F butterfly food again by STelari
Well, dA requires a title, and "Untitled" is boring.

November 2017, gouache on a4

Hello, Shion. I had over a month of a break before I finished this painting and by the end when I was just-just about to return to it, I was almost beside myself, I wanted to paint so much. Now I’m back, so. Shitload of work before me.

This might make up about 25-40% of all butterflies I’ve ever made in my life.

Well, I think I've started out like most of people my age, with Dir en grey, and they still have a special place in my heart. I also adore Sid and Kaya (actually, I learned about the latter thanks to my girlfriend, whom by the way I also met thanks to VK!) :) How about yours?

My Visual Kei obsession started in my second year of middle school, and it was all thanks to Malice Mizer, (after I'd fallen head over heels for GACKT.) Eventually, I was lead to discover Versailles', (as well as the ever-so-fabulous Kamijo's Music,) leading me to discover even more VK bands and the rest is history! There are so many that I love- It'd be like choosing your favorite child! If I'd have to choose, I'd say X Japan would be very high up there, along with Malice Mizer, BUCK-TICK, (if they count as VK,) and definitely KAMIJO/Versailles. I'm also very Familiar with Dir en Grey- I highly respect Kyo, as a vocalist! I mean- DANG! Can he sing!

... this is inspired by Japanese Visual Kei style, not some anime. I do other pictures with this and one other character exactly for the purpose of drawing various VK fashion. telari.tumblr.com/tagged/YS

it's not an anime, it's a manga
I know what visual kei is
and thing is the resemblance is way too striking, once may wonder whever or not there was inspiration

Certainly, your suspicions are all logic and whatnot, but they kinda die after the point where I mention that I have not read the manga nor watched the anime. And on the other hand, I can give you 10 examples of stuff with butterfly symbolism in art or fiction off the top of my head right now. They are not really, you know, exclusive to one manga, neither is the hair or whatever else in this painting went that way.

I decided to check xxxHOLiC out after your comments and I quite like it. Though the anatomy creeps me out. (:
