After seeing this I immediately went to read the manga. Beautifully tragic. Absolutely amazing! I love the art even more so now. BD Grazie for the indirect manga reccomendation and sharing your wonderful art!
The Respiration of Copernicus by Nakamura Asumiko. It's two volumes long and you can read the scans here [link] It can get a bit odd and disturbing specially the incest and wrinkly old men molesting young boys parts XD, but give it a try. It's really good. *u*
