Cyborg Butterfly by sonialeong Cyborg Butterfly by sonialeong
EDIT: I've edited this as I've had to remaster it for my latest print run ^^ I also made a comic of this character for Mangaquake in 2006 and it was released as a standalone comic with Sweatdrop. If you'd like to read her story, head here:

I love cyborg-like creations. This looks so good... I especially like the wings and how there's a plug leading into the knuckles of her hand.

Do you mind if I use this piece of work for a school project? You'll be given full credit for the drawing, and all I'm really doing is writing a poem about it.

If you don't want me to use it that's fine, I'm only asking.
