Lullaby by MementoViola Lullaby by MementoViola
Sleepsong
Sing for me for thousands of years
Tell me about life
When I no longer exist
What can I get from the other world
except emptiness?

Like the birds
on top of hills near the ocean  
I try to find the life that I have lost
In this crossing of time

Love is like a knife
Love is like a sharp point of a knife
Softly and Sweet
Cutting the First love
Forever


Tools: Watercolor,  Prisma Colored Pencils, Mechanical Pencils 0.5mm 
Listening to: Guillaume de Machau - Douce Dame Jolie
"for falling asleep in a blossoming garden and wearing lilac silk."

I know I need to submit new works soon, but I haven't had the time to draw anything new because school is seriously a drag and is killing me right now. I have two exams philosophy and US history on the same day next week and I want to cry because I haven't studied or read anything yet T_T I am really screwed. I know this picture is a while ago and I keep submitting old works, but I feel like I should submit this picture because of the colors fit with the autumn season to me. Also I was inspired by vintage artwork like this one (a href="vnchord.com/resources/songfile…"> Link and I want to keep my gallery updated most of the time so it would be more vibrant. I don't know lol. I even forgot that I painted this picture, seriously, until I found it again! Anyway, for this picture, as I was saying, I was inspired by Vietnamese Vintage artwork and some old European Folk tales artwork like Arthur Rackham for example. I know the picture looks a little off but I can't find a way to fix it. I'm planning to draw another version of this picture sometimes soon because I really like how the background turns out, just not the the people in the picture. I tried to make the picture a little romantic but I think I failed again! Which is sad I know...sigh. For the passage text above, I was inspired by the lyrics of two Vietnamese songs I heard on a radio one time. It's called Khuc Thuy Du by Thuy Duong and Ru em Tung Ngon Xuan Nong by Trinh Cong Son . Thuy Duong has such a sad and soulful looking eyes when she sings and it's so inspirational that I want to draw eyes for my art like that in the future. I want to mix Asian and European art for this picture but I don't even know if it is working out anymore! Oh well, I will try to make the next version of this picture better when I redraw it.

P/S: I also started on a story a while ago but I didn't want to reveal it to the public. Now I am. A glimpse of it can be found under Ernest the Night Rider picture. It is just some small summary and personality revealed for the character that I just newly added. I will draw a new version of Ernest again because the character is very dear to me. (So are the other characters, but still) So please stay tuned :D 
Edited: Just found another song that fit with this picture! Sorry for the notification!

Well, this is not really my field but I believe that in some of your drawings you should really give some extra contrast in...because some of them as this for example looks a little bit flat...It would be much nicer in my opinion and probably clearer...in the other hand on most of your pieces your contrast is really good and deepth is amazing...so I don't know if it is on purpose or not...(probably is)...but I would really like if it was a little bit deeper...because clearly birds for example is behind young couple? are there? :D
I have the feeling that right bird is in front of that young man, but it is clearly on the tree that is behind and it confuses me a little bit...but i really like the colors and the atmosphere it really looks amazingly peaceful :)
