Probably my biggest personal work yet. A lot of experimenting and re-doing sections to explore and have fun.

Wow... :wow: At first I thought this was just a cool science-fiction cityscape,

but then, after careful observation, I noticed the city is inhabited by mushroom folk!

That makes this piece so much more awesome! :w00t:

Probably should be careful with that; my piece's name is a reference to an already existing song, "And the Day Turned to Night" by Shpongle, which served a lot of creative inspo for this. Wouldn't want to cause any confusion or copyright troubles. :)

Oh, good to know. How about And THEN The Day Turned to Night? Real sweet song, by the way. I had never heard of them before.

A very amazing looking sci fi setting that gives a very industrial( with floating buildings) look but still has a lot natural beauty( the trees and mountain) all inhabited by living mushrooms. This is really good so keep on drawing

Thanks a lot! :) I sure will. Industry amidst nature is always just a fascinating aesthetic to me.

Amazing! It perfectly reflects the power of the industrialized Japanese Empire which used factories called water scoop mills even in ancient times to power hammers in forge mills, saws in sawmills, stamps in stamp mills used for mining, and to make wool textiles in fullers, and pottery in pottery mills, along with blast furnaces for mass producing metal and oil refineries to mass produce oil for use in soap, oil lamps, candles, lubricants, cleaning oils, and incendiary bombs.


I have an image of the water scoop mill:

And an article about how the industrialized Japanese Empire expanded its territory to the islands in the north in 658-660:

I also think these 2 soundtracks would fit your artwork perfectly:

nice work

This is amazing. Would you be up for using it for a little bit of collaboration? I have a song on YouTube that only has a blank background. Would I be able to use this image on the video? We could link to each other and possibly drive a little more traffic each other's ways. I think this illustration would fit the music perfectly.

In any case, keep up the pretty drawings!

Thanks! :D


In terms of collaboration, that's not quite how I work haha, but I don't mind you using the image as long as you give credit/link to where people can find the original source of it. :)


I'm not overly protective of my personal (i.e. not commissioned) work being used for things as long as it's non-commercial and credit's given.

to-the-sun's avatar

Great! I'll send you a link as soon as I upload it. If you're not overly protective, maybe I'll find another good match I could use, too…
