invaders by rennerei invaders by rennerei
I made a little book with illustrations based on music earlier this year, this (the last drawing I submitted as well, btw) is one double-page in it.
The song for this was an instrumental piece that starts off rather music box -esque until it becomes a heavier marching melody and it made me think of a circus coming to a sleeping town :heart:

I'll upload some of the other pages later maybe, I'm currently editing them a bit now that I have my own computer back. That thing did nothing but dying during these last months, good grief. If I see another BSOD in my life I'm gonna have a heart attack.

Really love this ♥ I', liking the style you used here, it's very nice and simple yet gives out a good dark feel. I also love how you used the texture, it's a nice touch.

What art style is this? I've been search for a name for this particular style. Sort of a french, grainy, 1800-1900s feel... Not quite sure.
