When Night Comes by mou-s When Night Comes by mou-s
This was done as an art trade with my classmate.
She told me to draw a person being lost in a forest full of monsters. I totally forgot about the "lost" part, but she seemed okay with it this way. The monsters were inspired by sea creatures (if it's not obvious enough. haha ^^").

Again, this took me an insane amount of time to finish (...a week?).

Thank you ~SDBZDB, ~sandpaperdaisy and ^MzzAzn for the feature. m(_ _)m

When Night Comes by ~mou-S I love when an art piece allows you to create a story in your head about it. This piece does just that for me- it's an excellent source of inspiration. ( Suggested by SDBZDB and Featured by MzzAzn )

She looks like she's actually kind of excited about the monsters behind her. When I first saw it, I thought she could be leading them, or maybe she's just so scared she's gone silly. Like "hahaha! I'm so dead!" This is amazing by the way.

This is superb!! The tones, the details of the forest, her expression... the composition is just magnificent and unique. The creatures first do give the impression of sea creatures.
You did a wonderful work, stunning! :dalove:

They were based off sea creatures. I took some elements from exotic tropical fish and added other features to them. That huge red one in the back was based off a scorpion fish. The smaller ones I don't quite remember myself. lol
