AAAAH

Did you try a new coloring style? It looks softer here than usual, though that might be because of the canvas-y texture *u* I love it!

also I don't know the literary reference but I do know some French so...'the distant/faraway man'? I dig it

Thank youuuuuu ;;;w;;;

I tried overlaying colors on top of a grayscale painting again, then applied a canvas texture like you said, but I was overall hoping to achieve this sort of "old painting" look so I'm happy ;u;

yaaah the original phrase is 'la princesse lointaine'... It seems like there have been legends of troubadours singing about their love for lady whom they have only heard about (and/or only seen paintings of, but mostly only heard about from what I know) but never met, probably deriving from the legend of a guy named Jaufre Rudel... 'La Princesse Lointaine' itself is the title of a 19th century dramatic poem about him and I knew about it for quite a while, and (naturally) I thought that sounded... quite a lot like myself. xD

The legend may sound counterintuitive in today's culture at first, but as we know, there are plenty of us today who are in love with people whom they never met OR people who don't even exist, so methinks it does hold some water xD
