Bleed Like Me by Mirrei Bleed Like Me by Mirrei
Hey, baby, can you bleed like me?
School lineart by yours truly for the brave of heart.

I was inspired by a super awesome animated gif I saw once where a girl tears the skin from her ribs but butterflies fly out. It's not gory or sick, it's just really beautiful. I actually have the gif as my webcam. I'd source it but I'm not sure where it came from.
I guess you could be slightly disturbed by the fact this girl appears to not just have two arms and her ribs are showing. But the arms thing was mainly me being indecisive--I didn't like any of the positions I drew her arms in in the original pencil sketch so I just decided to go with all three positions on each side.
I also know rib cages don't actually look like that, but I didn't have a reference...

Although it may initially be creepy, my concept was not to be disturbing but more beautiful like the animation I was inspired by. The flowers and butterflies I got impatient with because they're really small. This picture is 5 by 5 at the longest points so it's pretty small.
