Curse of the Winged Koi by yuumei Curse of the Winged Koi by yuumei

This is a character from a little story (not Project WE or Knite) that I came up with while studying too much for finals XD (but my last exam is tomorrow so I'll free soon!!) I might work on this story after I'm done with the other I have so many stories I want do but not enough time to work on any =_=

(btw, the koi is a tattoo, though it's a cursed tattoo so it's more life like than a normal tattoo should look. The color pattern on the koi is that of a red crowned crane)

Origami winged koi, designed and folded by me :D Origami Winged Koi by yuumei

Another one CotWK: Black Water by yuumei

Drawn in Paint tool SAI

I've been thinking about this picture since you posted it the first time and it won't leave my head. Maybe one day I'll get a tattoo inspired by it...

I know how you feel about having a lot of stories that you feel like you have to write, even if it means being distracted from studying...! although I'm a little freaked out about this cursed winged koi now because I was thinking about getting a tattoo on my back that looks a lot like this... still, it's a stunning piece.

ArtemisxVivian Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I find myself so scared by the fact that I can relate to a lot of your art, because I used to have a friend who's mother had a tattoo similair to this...but, she was a very nice lady, and didn't look like this one! :)

Hello Yuumei, I love this picture and wanted to ask you if it would be ok if me n my friend use this picture for our art class? Our assiment was to pick an artist, or movie poster, artwork that you like alot and to recreate it with chalk, pastels on the sidewalk outside of school. If you don't mind me n my friend would like to do this n write our speech on you to share your work with our classmates. I'll be waiting for your response so please and thank you for reading this comment. Also if we are aloud i will gladly send you pictures of our recreation so you can see how we did :3

How does it feel to know that when one does a Google image search for "winged koi", the first two results are your pictures? :)

Can't get over how beautiful this artwork is.
It really reminds me of an alternate/oriental version of the mythical Selkie legends.
Nice job!

Makes me wonder. IDK if a winged Koi is a real animal species, but taking it in the sense that it is fictionaly and with those 'wings' it can actualy fly, I want to make how I took the curse. The curse would be that the Koi being a fish, always wanted to fly, and one day it received wings. Though it could fly, I still never would be able to because it wouldn't be able to breathe above the surface, so its wings, become more of a curse than a gift. So maybe the girl in the picture, had recieved some great gift, but she could never use it, for it would only result in her own suffering, so she had the curse of the winged koi. IDK, just how I took it since you didn't give a in depth explaination.
