Very well drawn, I admire such talent you've expressed into this!! Absolutely wonderful texture along with fine toning, the image clear to see with well-shaded outlines. The creativity is great as intended, and I am impressed with this!! Well done, 10/10 of course!!

The way the art itself flows with such a formality that causes passion to overflow through my body when I see this...it's breath taking...Well done indeed and this was without a doubt considered as "Art". Not to mention overall it's such a wonderful inspiration this drawing gives me! So detailed along with a great moral sense of value, delightful scenery added with details beyond mere words! I truly value this a lot, very well expressed and high quality into the characters themselves. Even an interesting touch of some vivid coloring.

Your portraits are amazing- and this one stood out to me in particular for a couple reasons. For one, I really like the placement (not to mention amazing realism) of the butterflies. I also think that the high contrast here creates a very visually striking effect, although some realism is sacrificed. Great job.
