This is a piece in a series I did where I tried to depict creatures we see as ugly as something more beautiful and romantic. Even though I always saw moths as almost ethereal, I learned recently that many people find them gross or even scary! Almost all my pieces in this series incorporated flowers and after I saw Kieraplease’s afro flower trend I knew I wanted to draw her in my series! I also used a limited pallet here to try and mimic colors of a sunset!
The rosy maple moth (is that their name??) is def my favorite moth species so yes yes yes!!! I really love these things’ colors bc they remind me of strawberry cheesecake or something XD also they’re jus so fluffy!!! This one’s p shy and endearing, p affectionate and loves hugs and cuddles ♥ Also she’s such a chubby little sweetie ♥♥
