Enma Ai - Butterfly by aruarian-dancer Enma Ai - Butterfly by aruarian-dancer
"Anma Ai - Butterfly" Friday Doodle Club 04-24-2009. About 6 hours in Corel Painter. :XD:

I was going for the Japanese kiri-e style for the figure and the single butterfly. The background was inspired by the sunset that we see in every episode when someone receives a straw doll. I was originally tempted to do the manjushage flowers, but I decided to go for the butterflies, as seen in the original rough concept sketch. I did manjushage and red & black theme for "Madam Red" not too long ago, so....
The final episode of "Jigoku Shoujo Mitsuganae" was sad (i cried...), and I still want to do a field of blue manjushage flowers, inspired by the ending.

Did a lot of extra experiements with the butterflies and wasted a lot of time, but it was fun.

The downloadable image is 1024 x 768 small wallpaper size.

闇に惑いし哀れな影よ 人を傷つけ貶めて 罪に溺れし業の魂・・・イッペン、死ンデミル? :mwahaha:

First off the fiery colors here are gorgeous. It's like that last great burst of light and color before night settles in.

Secondly if you did those butterflies one by one lol do you still have a hand?

It always seems sunset time in the "other" world in the series, so I was inspired to somewhat recreate the burning sky. :D

Yep, I still have a hand and yeah... I did them one by one. :XD: lol You know me.
