Commission - Cold Moonlight by shilin Commission - Cold Moonlight by shilin
Commission of a scene as described by the client. I'm content with this and I hope you like it too!

close ups: [link]

I probably did not need to draw a concert pedal harp, but it didn't even occur to me until after I finished the whole image. the musician in me automatically said concert harp when read the word "harp" ): but I think it fits pretty well with the rest of this woman's expensive get-ups, as opposed to a smaller harp XD

[edit: thank you very much for another feature!]

I received a couple of suggestions for Commission - Cold Moonlight by *shilin and I can easily see why! The overall feel of this piece is simply amazing and executed exceptionally well! I love the burning city in the background and the way the character is coolly playing her harp. On the topic of the character and harp, they look amazing! The coloring is beautifully done and everything feels so natural! ( Suggested by N-Maulina and Featured by Damaged927 )

I can't help but think of Nero, the guy in Rome who supposedly played the fiddle while Rome burned... This drawing seems a bit more majestic and calm than I imagine Nero to be though...

I absolutely love your works. They're so pretty!

I like how you add small details into this picture. Im more over blown away how you incorporated them. Aka you add small things but you dont make them half ass. Most people add details do it in bulky ways just so the look good but those who take the time to put small things do it to remove empty space and make then objects smudged or shitty. So well done.

I like how she's sitting there all calm and smug while there's destruction going on in the background, and the soul-thingies(?) which remind me vaguely of koi swimming around are neat and kind of ominous when matched with the design of the harp...a spike-impaled angel just isn't 'happy' no matter how you look at it...
but it DOES look REALLY cool.

Love this!! :worship:
