I love oil paint. This is so nice. And stars are my favorite thing in paintings. The pretty, calm stars paired with the lightning is a nice touch. Very good! Nightmare/Luna looks really good too. I love her glowing eyes.

This would be awesome as one of those blacklight posters that were popular in the 70's. :)

Would it set your feet on fire to know it's hanging on mine? If so, I apologize.

I'd have to agree with bannanaphoniest.

Your works in paints are gorgeous, but they don't have the same sort of 'life' in them as your digital works do.
It may be because you're new at them.
However, with that being said, this is still beautiful. Far better than I could hope to compose.

I'm not one to critique, since I'm not good at art myself, but I thought I'd provide some input other than "aslkdjfgkajhsdf art luv ur art KLFJhkdfhgasdf". Hahaha

I'm not quite sure how you could go about fixing it, since I'm not quite exactly sure what would need tweaking to give off that same vibe your digital works do, other than you seem to take more (successful) risks with your digital works.
With those, it almost seems as if you're trying something you're not sure if you can do, but it works out highly successful in the end.
With these, although your skill is phenomenal, it feels almost as if you're playing it too safe, or you're almost afraid to work with the paint.

I dunno. I may just be too critical and analytic because of my recent AP english testing, but that's the vibe I'm getting, and I thought it might be beneficial if I shared it.

Please keep painting. I can't wait to see what you throw out at us next. :heart:
