I don’t have a definite style (yet), but this is something that I thought about. It’s really cool how little complexity can make such a beautiful picture. The lighting is also impressive! The contrast between warm and cool colors is one of my favorite themes in your art. Thanks for drawing this!

Classic internet. It hates proper grammar! I knew it!

Thanks for your thoughtful comment. Personally I think composition is a very important thing, and having experimented over time, the more complex details I add for no reason other than "to make it look epic" the worse the final image looks. (How other people do full complex images and not have it look a mess of details I have no clue) I actually have a system of "what's the least amount of detail I can add and still make a strong image?" Not to be lazy and get away without working hard, or to say I don't still add a lot of detail, but it's fun to add detail in a considered, compositional way instead of a "because... detail looks impressive... doesn't it?" way. I'm still struggling to find the point of balance but if I had the perfect formula I wouldn't need to keep making art to discover new things XD

That.. and I do have a lot of fun with light and colour and mood. It ties into composition for me, how you can draw the eye to look at certain things is just illusionary magic and I love playing with it. As you've noticed. :P

That was it! Every time I do a draft of a picture, I always kept thinking “How do I make this look even better?” The major problem was that I was focused on adding as much detail as possible, stuck on the line between realistic art or a cartoonish style. Maybe once I figure that out, I’ll start adding detail. Needed that. Thanks!
