Let the sky fall
When it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together

-Adele, "Skyfall"

Life can be a mess, but as long as you maintain strong roots in who you are and what you truly need, you can face it.

CainHaven777 :

Now The Reason I chose this [to put on my status update] is i think i feel where you might have got the inspiration...Have you ever heard the tale of the 10 suns that lived in a mother tree? Its a mythology tale well from what i recall as each sun passed away or well was destroyed they returned to this mother tree untill one sun our sun was left and it simply stayed in the sky. Its a bit sad i can try looking it up but its like a very old legend i heard in middle school. Thought you'd like it. 

The Legend of the 10 Suns and the Tree i believe it was called or just the 10 suns

anyway you deserve a shout out today for being an amazing adorable and awesome lil friend and i just love you and might repost more stuff. Be cool to edit this on pizap or use it on l my phone wall paper or if i could print it and put it on my wall if i could download it and just remember my love for mythology. You're an inspiration to young writers who know legends i saw your yin yang pic as well good job.

Oooh I have not heard of that legend, but I think it'll be something I'll read up on. I really love reading mythology as well.
I think that the closest thing this artwork reminds me of is the Tree of Life (Yggdrasil) from Norse mythology, but I think I want to read up more on that as well >.<

Ahhh I think that the concept of Yin and Yang (for Night + Light Fury) is quite an overdone concept, but its meaning and the color balance have a very easy "flow".

And yes! Feel free to use this as your background!!

What application did you use? :o I love the colors and the effects :heart:

For the main background (in the stash link from the description) and the tree, I used Autodesk Sketchbook. The program only supports one layer, but I really like it's brush and smear brush. The glow effects are also from Autodesk Sketchbook. :squee:

I then saved the file and moved over to Krita to add in the small sparkly dots and the several paint splats. :w00t:

I see. I don't know how you do all these landscaping so well, I couldn't do much of a decent one, at least, I'm still learning to.

So those glowing 'flames' at the bottom, nearby the tree are also made in Autodesk? :o I've used Autodesk for a bit and never knew I could do such things with it xd

I LOVE the perspective and the bright colors and the movement!

Thank you! :heart:

Perspective for me is usually that concept taught in art class that felt like something vague and intuitive, but I never really got the depth of it's importance until I made that tree
Dignity Laugh  pun intended ;)


Making the movement was really fun! :w00t: Smear brush for the win!!!
