Goth! Kid! Goth! Kid!
Also hi, m trying out this quicker style for finalized custom artwork, would love to hear ppl's thoughts on this,,
(essentially customs w/ my regular lineart style take Forever n I'd rather focus my time on designing than lining - I'd still offer lineart as an option mind u but it'd come w/ a fee)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Melancholy a feeling of pensive sadness, typically with no obvious cause.

This Paralogos is real droopy and sad.
There's an ongoing theme of dying plants and darkness - with white lilies (flower that symbolizes sadness) even present as their lights.
They have thorned stems running around their legs, arms and neck - symbolism for painful growth and the choking feeling that comes before crying.
And their veil of dying leaves is a metaphor for being wrapped in sorrowful thoughts (idea courtesy of Jess!).

This is gorgeous! The details are so well thought-out, I adore the flower petal lights especially! I definitely think you should charge extra for your regular lining style, especially if it takes such a significant portion of time!

aaa thank you!! ;;
& I appreciate you sharing your thoughts! The lineart really adds like 60-100% bonus time to it so I'll most likely do that going forward,,
