 Bullet; Black Quest: Soulsong - Temple of Silence - Introduction Bullet; Black 

Can't believe I made it this time... well, I guess the intro part, that's more than ever before since I don't seem to have time in my life for any of my own stuff unless I want to starve or panic, or both. c:
I really wish this could be more refined but keeping the spirit of sketchtember alive, it is what it is. 

Also a note, I'm absolutely lost in all of this, there's so much info I don't know if my brain can keep up, and I just pray I don't miss anything important. xD 

 I've decided to go through the Temple of Silence, because I feel like that's what I'd do right now. I crave peace and quiet even though I have plenty of it. I feel agitated by the tiniest sound for no real reason. I haven't explored properly what lies before me (prompts vise) and it's in a sense exciting and scary because I tend to get lost in thoughts (or perhaps tangled would be a better description)

There is a reason I choose for May to enter the temple through a crack in the wall (a rather huge one I know, but it's a big wall xD ). May is basically me and through her I explore myself and I don't feel invited most of the time. I feel like an intruder in the places I go, in groups of people. I feel like that with TWWM or Boucles, or anywhere else, as I've just silently slipped in through the cracks.

I think this art looks pretty interesting and mystical.

this has such a legend of zelda vibe in absolutely the best way and it looks absolutely beautiful. i love the crack in the wall! i also feel you in regards to feeling like you don't fit in in certain groups, for what it's worth ❤️

Thank you! I haven't thought of that, but I guess it's the ornaments? I always go for Ghibli movies feel since they are big inspiration of mine. ;w;

I guess it's a normal feeling when you try to both be friendly but also keep a distance. I haven't figured out socializing yet it's most likely what's the issue. xD

ohh this is gorgeous <3 I love the BG a lot and how you drew May

Thank you! c: I'm trying to mix the styles a bit lately. I enjoy my old painterly style but it feels really dirty sometimes and I think these lined cell-shaded elements balance that a little.

Aymea's avatar

It's a nice mix! Gives that animated movie/show feels, like Ghibli often has. I personally don't think the painterly style looks dirty, it's the heavy chaotic brush strokes that give life to the scene.

that's such a nice take on an entry into the temple - love how ornate the wall is and how all the sprouts are reaching up! the brushwork is so beautiful, I can't wait to see what else you do for this event ;u; I also hope you'll feel more welcome in the spaces you want to be in, what you're describing isn't an easy thing.

Thank you! c: Glad you like my messy brushing, I think mixing the styles as I do lately makes my old painting style more loose (that plus time restraints), not sure if that's good or bad, but it's a journey I'm on currently. I'm really curious where the prompts will lead me and hopefully it's not going to be too dark.

I'm sure with time I can do that, when I figure out what's the best way to belong and not disrupt. It's kind of messed up probably, but I do like the idea of being a friendly ghost. xD

it's as dark as you make it - the prompts are very open to interpretation in a lot of ways, and you don't need to do all of them either, so I hope you'll enjoy the journey alongside your esk!

also aww ... friendly ghost, that makes me think of this song I like haha https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqxbSUU-tOc&ab_channel=TheMajoritySays you might like it too c:
