This drawing was inspired by the brilliant "enlightened" by deviantart user darkglint. The original drawing can be found here: https://www.deviantart.com/darkglinnt/art/enlightened-831241457 and the story of how I ended up doing this is in the comments section.
Essentially, I really really liked the butterfly with the X-Ray wings, and suggested the idea of a drawing that had only those central elements and nothing else. Darkglint's response was to suggest that I draw it instead, so I did.
The composition is mine, and my hands were the ones that put all the graphite on the paper. The style and emotional content is also very different. Nonetheless, I consider this a collaborative work. If you like my drawings, look up darkglint.
Giving further credit, I used two photo references which I did not take. The butterfly can be found at:

It is totally OK to find inspiration in the work of other artists. in college I had no less than 4 art classes that the teachers made us copy the work of other artists for a variety of reasons (LOL). I like your imagery here but would like to see a little more of a finished feel to the end product. Keep up the good work.
