While I was practicing my violin, I saw a cocoon outside the window. I had never seen one before, so I went out and tried to climb the tree... I failed miserably, yes. o_O Lol! So, anyway, I imagined one of my character doing this at my place and discovering this cocoon. Is it a coincidence that I had just created this butterfly-girl character for a request from my best friend? ^_^ Anyway, I thought the idea was cool, so I just went inside and started drawing.
A proof that inspiration can make marvelous things. I have never drawn something that I liked as much as this one. It did take several hours though. I'd say it took about 10 hours (although not in one shot) until it was completed. I had to shrink it down considerably, which took off some detail.
Mechanical pencil Update: Changed the title from 'Spring' to Hooded Curiosity, thanks to Liiga's idea. ^_^
