Midnight Rainbow by yuumei Midnight Rainbow by yuumei

Finally had some time to paint between all the projects :D I think I'm too in love with the Milky Way and paint it all the time. Inspired by my recent astrophotography adventure 2 weeks ago~

In other news, I'll be at Anime Expo again this year! Find me in the Artist Alley at Table C24-25! I can't wait to see all my friends again!

This is so like the description of my character it's almost like you've read it, haha. 

"    The person sitting on the roof has hair like moonlight, and her deep blue eyes reflect all the millions of stars, as though she has captured the universe inside her soul. She is dressed in a white nightgown, simple in design, but on her it looks so stunning that I catch my breath. Her hair and dress float around her, teased into motion by the soft breeze, and she seems like a fragile, ethereal being, caught between this world and the void, as though she will fade away any second and I will realize she was just a dream. I find myself reaching toward her, thinking maybe if I hold on to her she won’t disappear."

Seriously so similar... Your artwork is lovely!

Why did you put that tag on it, right in the centre!?
that ruins it ;(
Kunstbanane Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
it's her choice as an artist. Also rude to say that the own name tag "ruined" the picture.
nitrobutane Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2017
"Rude"? What is that supposed to mean, I'm supposed to revere the name and not the art? Is her ownership of the piece more important than the art itself? I don't think so.
As for "choice as an artist", the artist in her probably wasn't too happy about sticking a tag right in the centre of the piece. It was about authorship, not the art itself.
Kunstbanane Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
So many artist (mainly popular ones) put a tag on their art, usually so it doesn't get stolen and other can't claim it as their own art. Tags have a purpose yknow.
nitrobutane Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2017
That 'purpose' interferes with appreciating the art itself.
The problem should be tackled by devoting effort to exposing art thieves, not by stamping ownership tags on arts.
Idcgurl Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2017
 Firstly, Though it may not be my business, how are you even supposed to find out if someone steals your art? It can take a long time to find out. An wasting your time just to find out i someone took your art is a waste of time when you could be doing other things. You won't understand the need to do this unless you've been through it before. 
nitrobutane Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2017
Like I said, authorship of the art is hardly more important than the art itself.
>how are you even supposed to find out if someone steals your art?

With a reverse image search. It's very functional nowadays. has deviantart indexed, pixiv indexed, all sorts of other art websites indexed.
And it provides a link to a Google and a Tineye search for your image.
-And people are already aware of Google and Tineye, so it's not such a big problem.
Idcgurl Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2017
  As for your first statement; Sure, 'authorship of the art is hardly more important than the art itself.', however, how would you feel if something you put countless time and effort into making something gets 'stolen' within seconds and claimed as someone else's? Sure, the main focus of your art is not the authorship, but personally, to the artist of the work; or anyone who creates something that they worked hard on, 99.9% of the time would not like something you worked hard on to just get claimed as someone else's at  the snap of a finger.

 Secondly, as I said before, why would a person have to constantly reverse image search there drawings all the time so it won't get stolen? ('cause people could easily screenshot a picture and claim it as there own at anytime) Putting a water mark in the middle that barley makes a difference and only barley shows the name o the artist, saves time. Sure, when people put a HUGE water mark smack in the middle of the drawing it does get annoying, and you could encourage a smaller watermark; however in this piece, its just a small font of "Yumei" and barley interrupts anything in the picture, it even is in a color that matches the color scheme. I don't see any huge watermark stopping you from enjoying the piece.

Usually centered drawings seem boring, but it comes so well together. The trees and stars converging on one point, and the girl alone! She looks beautiful! Amazing work

Me too!
Skyilere Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Lol. I thought it was Menma too,with that dress and white hair,and those eyes.
But professionals like Yuumei won't draw anime too often,unless they specialize in it.
XXArthurXX Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2016
Tought the same. The instant i saw the art I recalled Menma

I don't blame you for loving the Milky Way, it's amazing to look at. That holds true for this picture as well. The whole scene has a fluidity to it that matches with the subject. Love it!
