I love how whimsical this feels. The contrast with each of your art pieces is just phenomenal.

I looked at this and thought "That looks like something from Pratchett" and then read the author's note and was reminded I need to reread Reaper Man as it's been over a decade since the last time.

I imagine he's planing to place them on some tombstones
It's somewhat cute (as cute as the reaper can be)

I am now interested in the book. I'll have to find a PDF or a copy at the library.
I love the colors in this. There's such a contrast in the reaper and the flowers that it really stands out.

It was really a surprise find this beautiful fanart of Terry Pratchett! It's pretty rare to find one :) and it's equally rare to find a nice piece of art that catch the moment, but most of all the meaning of the scene :) even if something it's different!

Visually also reminding me in Nina Ruzika's comic "Der Tod und das Mädchen" (Death and the Girl). You don't happen to know it, do you?

Well, could have been there is an English version. :D But there is a scene in the comic where Death visits the girl in her flower shop, and she looks quite similar to the woman in your picture. That's why it reminded me.

Such a lovely style. I always enjoy seeing a few different styles :3 The warm colors are beautiful and I love the blank space of the leaves in the foreground<3

Thank you. :) Sometimes I wonder if I have too many disparate styles...

You're welcome! :3
I'm not sure if one can have too many styles? I think your art is still pretty recognizable but it's also really nice and refreshing to see a few other things that break from ususal seen stuff and go into totally new directions. And the individual style anyone has is always behind it all, imo.
