Moonlight in Vermont by danielleclaire Moonlight in Vermont by danielleclaire
Banda, Ben Holly and an empty auditorium. Ain't life a baby grand? ;)

These two are both singers, brought together by music. :giggle:

I'm so tired! I've been working on this on and off all day between breaks in work, early in the morning and now at almost 10PM I'm finally done. Ben Holly's a clouded leopard-thing, Banda's just a ball of muttfluff. She's my only small character (aside from Nervosa, obviously, who is just creepy).

Piano: "I wish they would touch me more..."

(Made a few edits here and there... realized Banda looked a liiiiittle bit wonky, so fixed it up a bit.)

Lmao.

I was just being silly, since usually I'm all about complimenting the shit out of all of your artwork..I thought this time I'd compliment something very random that no one else probably even noticed amidst all of the other awesomeness.

I think I succeeded. :D

Seriously though, this is amazing AS USUAL. You did a great job on it.

Absolutely lovely, dear! You did a wonderful job on the anatomy and their intimate expressions. I really like Banda's dress, you did great on the sparkly effect :heart: And beautiful background/piano as well. I can tell that you put just as much effort into it than the main focus ^^ I'd like to see more of these two!

Thank you so much. :hug: I was dreading having to shade the piano because I didn't think it'd turn out all that great, so I left it 'til lucky last and just gave it a bash. :lol: I should draw them more often, I love them as a couple.

Lol, random objects like that freak me out too. You just don't usually run into them during day-to-day sketches, and then when you do it kind of catches you by surprise. At least it does for me :XD:

Nah, I'm the exact same! I'm working on a piece at the moment with a flower vase in it. :lol: Even that's caught me off-guard. Sure, it seems simple enough to draw... but my hand seems to think otherwise.

Reminds me of the piano scene from Pretty Woman for some reason. Beautiful piece though. Very spicy in a romantic and delicate way.

I thought that as I was into the third sketch (...it took five to get it to stop looking ridiculous). :lol: Given how much I love that movie I'm actually surprised it didn't click sooner. I'm glad that you see the romance in it. :aww: It's not intended to be terribly smutty or anythin'.

Oh don't get me wrong. I adore smutty occasionally, but this piece is a tender fire that makes you go "Damn." :D
I love that movie as well, and I am surprised to find that I don't own it... huh. Maybe I should remedy that.
Anyhoo! Wonderful piece, can't wait to see more from you. :heart:

I've got nothin' against smut either, I'm fairly non-prudent. :lol: But I try to make it slightly tasteful if at all possible. I don't own the movie either. :( I want to watch it now!

Thanks so much! :giggle: I intend to post more frequently so hopefully there's not a huge gap between this and my next submission. :lmao:

;P Same here! I wonder if it is on Netflix or OnDemand.

Awesome! Your style is gorgeous, and I always look forward to seeing what you come up with next. I might have to commission you at some point if you are open for those.

Thank you heaps! :D openCanvas is amazing for smooth lines! I totally fluke hair 90% of the time... I generally prefer longer hair on the boys but Ben has to be all short haired... :lol:

I do my sketching and lineart, and I also block in most of the shading before transferring the file to Photoshop to apply colour. :D
