Many creative people work at night when the air is saturated with dreams.

I've had the idea in my mind for quite a while to do a piece about dreams and night-time inspiration. You know the kind where you have to flip on the lights and draw it out, turn them off again and get another idea.

This is also more concept art for MemoirduLune, a roleplaying group that me and wispywaffle are building, of a library wing.

I had fun practicing with the lighting and architecture, it was my first time trying to paint architecture and my first time trying to design my own. I tried to give it an organic and nonsensical feeling.

Complimentary piece

I like how this came out,in the way how the colors set the mood just right and not to much lights coming into view, along with the fact that the spirit looking things look nice and the whole design of the spiral book case is rather good, but along the lines of just the makeup of the Characters, the heir is nice and fluent and the expressions set the mood along with the faint added blush effect that she has on her face I also like the clothes design and the girl looking up to see who is up there well all in all good job.
What do you think?

HIRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU QOOOOOOOOOOOOOQQQQQ
THIS NEVER APPEARED IN MY INBOX EEEEEKKK OHGSJDKMG omggg ;;;;;ooo;;;;;;;; so glad i just wander into galleries because this is such a treasure and so beautiful beautiful ;; <333333

organic and nonsencial wahh yess! it's so adorable and... quaint, is that the right word? it looks very fantasy and gives off such a calming feeling *q*... i love how you work with colours all the time, they always seem to work together so well without having to saccrifice a bigger palette ;w;

wahh so many little details i've just been staring - i love how you highlighted certain books in the cases, like in the back and such - i love thow they're colour sorted/coded AHAHA! such lovely large volumes *O* <3 the lighting is really lovely in this, it seems so complex but everything just glowwwwwsss and reflects and i really like how the windows even give off light onto the walls and gives it texture *OOOOO* eekk oh eekk *O* <33
i love the little characters, their proportions compared to the bookcases/room/...everything hahaa makes everything look so much more fantasyish ;uu;;; i really love how everything has its own little design, like even the window glass and the books with lines *O* and even the lady walking AHAHA oh gosh how cute, but.. she's... spying LOOLLL ;uu;; THE FISHHHHHHH ;AAAAA;; <333333 i i don't know if it's just me being silly but the fish make me think of goldfish in a giant goldfish bowl, sort of like those very characteristic round bowls they are kept in in cartoons? and then this library wing is very round ;v;; such a fun picture eeeeeee ;;;v;;; <33333

AAaa-ahh this is really a lovely piece ;uuuuuuu;; <33 i love seeing the concept art, every time i see it it makes me so excited and EEEEEEEKK *A* <333 i just really love the world hnn ;; <333

Than you so much :hug:
I love painting scenes now more than anything, there's just so much more for me to work with! Really figuring out how to make the lighting work is still a work in progress for me though. ;u; And I'm still getting used to merging layers and working with one layer at the end, as you can see by that one derpy looing dreamfish. ;u;
