Cupid's Arrow Orchid by vegetarian-artist Cupid's Arrow Orchid by vegetarian-artist
Did anyone else notice at first that there's an arrow going through the heart in the middle of the flower?

I drew this from observation from one of the Gnomeo and Juliet movie scenes on youtube, freehand. (sorry, I always feel it's better to include that. :))

And I'm actually really happy with the way it came out, especially the shading (which is more noticeable on the original drawing becuase my scanner and camera aren't that great. :P )

Comments are greatly appreciated! :) :)

Thank You! :) and I just went onto google images to see what the real cupid's arrow orchid looks like. Ironically, this is one of the first images to show up! XD :)

yeah they are no where near this colour so i have no idea how they got the name AND they don't look like this with the cupids arrow through it. there's like so many different types. Listed at the bottom-ish of this page [link] wish they were this colour I would so grow them!

Thanks! This is one of my favorite drawings as well, partly because I'm estatic with the way it came out, and partly because I love drawing flowers.

Anyways, thanks again for the comment! :)
