Just like old times by shilin Just like old times by shilin
Time may have robbed us of our lustre, but the way you make my heart flutter will stay with me forever!

Honestly there are many songs that I can imagine her playing, but since I can't make you guys listen to ALL OF THEM I will pick this one: Rachmaninoff Prelude Op 23 No. 2

I imagined the setting to be the stage of a hypothetically abandoned and destroyed Paris opera house Palais Garnier. I originally wanted the background to just be flat because the foreground is already so busy but decided to make the picture super extra by drawing in tons of clouds instead because I'm a sucker for them. I really want to polish this, maybe for next month!!

I really love how you draw shoes. All your characters (at least, in these AU pics) are always wearing REALLY COOL boots of some kind, and I LOVE it!

I usually have a tear in my eye when it comes to music and art pieces together but here, for some reason, I'm BAWLING MY EYES OUT! Why? I don't know (the fact that I'm a piano player doesn't help too).

What really charmed by your artstyle is how you draw and color the combination of 2d and 3d, it's not too anime but not too plain realistic like photo-tracing too, this art really can be ejoyed by eastern and western viewers! Such an amazing artwork miss shilin, keep it up!

Who is she from? Is she from a show or is she like your OC?

Amazing drawing! The position, the background, it's all so perfect! Just makes me want to work harder on stuff like that. Especially background ()-()

she's a character from two manga/comics that I create, carciphona.com and amongstuscomic.com (: the first one is the original and self published and have been going for 12 years, but is a fantasy setting whereas the second one will be more related to this drawing.

This reminds me of the place Veloce explored in one of your drawings. With the fallen chandelier and the piano. Awesome drawing by the way, you can truly feel her joy and love for playing.

I actually copied and pasted the chandelier HAHA. I really wanted to polish the previous one you mentioned but didn't in the end because the subject is too small. so this drawing is half channeling that previous picture too! I'm really happy you can feel her emotion : D
