This is a really beautiful picture. It made me think of a scene in D-Gray man the anime.

I'm still admireing this piece... It's realy a big wow for me, and creates so much emotion... I was thinking though... Would it be possible to add like a orange glow also coming from here... Like a ribbon of llight almost... I just imagined that in my head and it felt appealing.... Love this picture though. =D

Wow, it's amazing.
It has a dark almost frightening feel to it with the butterflies, which is interesting because usually butterflies represent things cute and cuddly.
I love it :D

First I saw the butterflies and thought, "Wow, that's beautiful!" Then I saw where they were coming from and the expression on the girl's face and thought, "God, that looks painful..." Then I read your comment and everything came together perfectly. This is a truly amazing piece. :)

Now this is just fab! The red butterflies stand out quite brilliantly against the much darker background, it almost reminds me of blood spatter, the way they've scattered.

The painterly texture is also wonderful, it adds a rough, but real appearance to it. Lighting is also great, as well as the shading.

In conclusion a relaly great piece that is both strong visually and conceptually

I love it. It's very beautiful, and the butterflies make it seem more charming than morbid. In fact, the butterflies probably draw out the beauty in the picture itself. ^-^

Wow, amazing work! I love the concept. The top of the painting really cheered me up until I scrolled down to the bottom. Beautiful contrast between the white dress and the bright red butterflies against the dark forest.
