The dream of a Butterfly by KuroCyou The dream of a Butterfly by KuroCyou

My enty for :iconclamp-fanclub: St Valentine contest!

I know it is not really "st.Valentine" style, but I really wanted to draw Yuko and her relationship with Clow Reed. I don't know if you've seen it, but there is a water reflections of Clow and Yuko xD
Well, the basic idea is: almost everyone in Clamp's world has a valentine. Yuko hasn't one, because her love is dead-gone away for higher reasons. So, how she feel in Valentine's day? Maybe it will be one of that moments when she shows her sadness. And so, while everyone celebrates Valentine's day, she smoke.
(what a poetic image)

I've also tried to make something which reminds the illustrations of xxxHolic.
Hope you like it! If you like it, please vote it in the contest!

Medium: Paint Tool SAI for the color, Photoshop CS4 for special effects
I think I will edit this. There are some things like the flowers that didn't turn out very good, and I want to adjust them, but I had to upload it for the contest :iconehmplz:
Yuko Ichihara, Clow Reed and xxxHolic are © CLAMP

True is may not be "st.Valentine" style,
But its amazingly done, and it has a sad feeling to it.
your coloring job is amazing. along with your detailing
the water is astounding, and her lips are so pretty.
i also love her eyes. the soft colors and there angle are perfect.
her nose seams a bit off but it suits her face.
I love the butterfly on her clothing.
i Love her shading in general.
as for the anatomic proportions, Bravo, from size of fingers to angle amazing. only her right hand seams a bit off.

The shadows of people in the water are so finely detailed and so well done.
All in all this is beautifully draw/Colored and a work of art.
Bravo mate.
