Background art of my visual novel "Dark Nights". The project is still ongoing but here's a preview.

Official site/blog:

I used the same design from a drawing I made back then and redrew it from a different angle. I thought it was fun to make a little animation with falling papers just like the original drawing.
It took hours to animate because I hadn't figured out yet how to do it hehe.

Did you lineart all those? Or just colored all these with no lineart?

Wow, so much detail... :)
Tell me, how long did it take for you to draw this? Like, without the animation.
Those books look like it would take quite a while...
Pinlin's avatar
Yes, drawing the books took a quite while. I can barely remember that I drew the rest because I stared at the books for so long.
I believe it took about 9~10 hours to draw this whole scene without animation. Honestly I didn't have a clear picture in mind from
beginning so I wasted some time with deciding composition and colors.
