When I read the title I was thinking of something very literally, but when I see the picture I get the feeling of something that has been broken without noticing until the last minute. That impresion on the pictures and how you can manifest that the light bults can be part of the humans feelings, in an awesome way. Is a very detailed drawing, that also is a very dark picture at first we can get the feels like the boy is trying to comfort the girl, although he was the one who broke the bult since he has the tool to do it. Also the light on the moon bult is like seeing a real moon on the bult, is an amazing effect. I really appreciate seeing these kinds of creativities everyday. I wish I could hang a frame with this picture on my bedroom or do some furniture with it, like a seat with this imprint in there. Very nice work, love it.

"The night we broke the moon" is a very inspiring work of art that catches the eye and brings a sense of a story to the mind's eye. It really inspires a lot of imagination and raises the question "what could happen from here?"
Looking at this art feels more like looking at a page from a storybook rather than just one image. The use of blue tones in both the foreground and background is very calming especially with the use of bright lights in the background for a starry night sky. The boy placing his hand on the girl's shoulder offering comfort is also very emotional and attention-grabbing. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/>
I am definitely looking forward to viewing more from the artist in the future.

Hello, "The night we broke the moon" is first of all a very lyric title. It makes me think of the romantic sentence "I love you to the moon and back" and many other stories that I will not list. Even though you chose a title that is quite "predictable" though beautiful you managed to make something I wasn't thinking of (when I see the title). I also find your imagination very vivid for comparing the night lights to lamp bulbs. The use of a blueish color goes very well with the theme. And we don't see the characters faces but you depicted them in such positions that one can understand their feelings (guilt ? a mistake ?).
Continue doing this great work!

This is a beautiful piece. I saw it and kept coming back to it because I couldn't shake the imagery. It makes me sad and hopeful all at the same time, children can feel so much guilt when they do something that may disappoint others but they are also the best at being able to comfort you without limits. I feel like this piece says that. Love love love this!

This looks like a picture in those old stories that our parents would read to us before bed.
