Drawn to the Light by Yuuza Drawn to the Light by Yuuza
:new:see the step by step of this drawing here :new:

they are the moon and a moth ouo
it is speculated that moths use a technique of celestial navigation called transverse orientation. By maintaining a constant angular relationship to a bright celestial light, such as the Moon, they can fly in a straight line. Unfortunately when they encounter artificial light such as a light bulb in my kitchen D: the moth instinctively attempts to correct its course by turning toward the light.
SO THEY COME INTO MY HOME AND SCARE THE HELL OUT OF ME!!!
this drawing was inspired by numerous such encounters during this summer. why do you let yourselves be fooled so easily by a light bulb? why? :iconwhywhyplz:
my cat hunts them down and eats them :( poor things
please don't come into my home anymore! TTATT

more about the drawing,
-the moth has burned wings because he flew too close to a light bulb.
-the moon is desperatly trying to bring him on the right course but he is blinded by a deceiving light bulb
- i drew the moon with fish because i was inspired by the goddess Mah who is a persian moon goddess and also the word Mah is the name of a species of fish which gives rise to the Persian language expression, az mah ta mahi, "from the moon to the mah-fish", to mean "everything". That expression has its origin in Persian mythology, where the world is believed to sit on a rock, on the back of a bull, on a kamkam, on the back of the mah fish, on water, on wind, and on the veil of darkness.

Again, love the way you draw the hair; it looks almost like they are underwater. Also the "glow" affect around the lady is lovely and how she is guiding him. Over all interesting, beautiful, and original artwork. Love it!
