Beautiful design. :D  Congrats on the DD!

On a side note...Now I feel wasteful, because I would create the powder by rubbing my graphite pencils on paper, and then dipping my Q-tip in it. It never occurred to me to use the loose graphite that what was in my sharpener, rather than dumping it in the trash.

Usually I would do it with a blender as well, but this idea came to me and it worked brilliantly. Thank you! :)

I've wanted to use powder myself but I am so afraid of the accuracy XD I have to try the technique some day, though :)

This is excellent!  I love the incorporation of the treble and (reversed) bass clefs.

It seems very, very impossible for this to be made by hand with graphite~
This truly is impressive~ So many details; elaborate, unique, and abstract to where it seemingly is open to interpretation~
And all the lines seem pretty consistent except for where they intercept the small butterfly there. Even so, I wish I could draw such perfect lines •u•'

Congratulations on the Daily Deviation; you truly do deserve it~
