Love your Moon and Crow drawings, such nice atmosphere. I really like the lightning/coloring, particularly in this one! The colors blend in so well with eachother~

Hope to see more of the story!

This project of yours is amazingly beautiful. I love the characters, the way you draw them, your style is beautiful! I can't wait to see more of them. I have to ask you, why a crow and not another bird or another animal (like a panther, it's black too ^_^)

I like you made the moon glow, but still kept the crow dark almost like it's trying to steal the light. It's beautiful

So beautiful...the eye on that bird creature (crow) captures my attention right away! The woman's figure (I assume that's a woman or the moon represented by such) is bright yet so mysterious. What a wonderful picture.
