Starhunt by Neverfly Starhunt by Neverfly
they had taken the horns of taurus

and the mane of leo;

one by one the great beasts of the constellations fell before them

The style of this makes me think of how I would see someone draw their dreams on paper. Just simply beautiful.

I absolutely love the way you do backgrounds, they are so detailed and yet so simple. You just can't help but take a closer look.

I love this. So much. It's ridiculous. Incredible....I adore the color scheme of this, and how smooth and floaty this is. (:

Alas, they made the blunder of getting in between Ursa Major and Ursa Minor, at which point all hell broke loose.

Reminds me of The Adventures of Baron Munchausen.

Oh, sorry I forgot to comment ^^; I like the starsign very much, and the clouds and water. It seems so light and fairytale:ish. The design of the boat is unique and I like how you gave it so much expression with such few lines. :) The colours are wonderful and makes it feel very poetic somehow ^^

You should make a comic *nudge* A style this beautiful would be amazing in sequential art form :)

About this piece: as usual, your simple, elegant style manages to be as amazing as ever ^^. Love the colors and concept behind it.

It's good to see you uploading again! I thought maybe you left the internet or something for a while..
