It prowls the skies, searching to mediate conflict between dangerous foes.  However, it sometimes instigates conflict rather than waiting to stumble upon it. Many stories have been passed down, painting it as a chaotic force with no ties to any nation or master, which have left others to wonder what kind of justice...or revenge...it seeks.

A previous version of this thing looked like this: [The Compiler Book]. I didn't expect the moon to turn out nearly as well as it did as I was working on the shapes and structures!  I figured I'd have to coerce a few shapes in place for a while and not really see anything fruitful, but it actually was not too hard to add that in.  The clouds at the bottom came next, and those were actually a lot more time-intensive than I expected.  They initially overwhelmed the darkness I wanted to see in the background (like the top left), and took a bit of wrangling for the colors to come out reasonably well (this gradient is basically greens, purples, blue, white, and black).  Still, I'm super content with how this ended up!

I especially like the upper half. it actually looks like it depicts something. With the bright shining moon and birdlike creature flying in the dark night's rain... beautiful!

The lower half (about where the background becomes white-ish) doesn't really fit to the dark top. The nebulae (the black smokey stuff) give the top a good rounding but the white flares are just too bright. Also the tail of the bird looks like it was experiencing a lot of motion blur... (I hope you know which section i mean)

This could turn out really nice if you'd try to 'fix' the lower half. I mean it already looks great as it is, but I think these flaws should be bettered out.

I believe my last piece of artwork was pink.  I probably will use it at some point in the future :)

Like this version more. Really gives me a sort of bluesy groove, usually only a good song can provide me. Nice werk!

Thank you!  Lots of my artwork is inspired (at least subconsciously) by what I'm listening to, and while I'm not translating a song, I do hope some of the emotion sticks in what I end up producing.

Thank you!  The colors aren't inherently that complicated [purple/gray/some blue], though the way light and darkness accents these colors is what I think causes it to stand out!
