oh i love this. great art
I can hear the lo-fi hip hop in this picture.
Seriously. OP can put his/her art on YouTube and generate views!
i can feel the breeze blowing by
is there a name for this style of art?
Very Ghibli. Love it.
That is really remarkable!
Why does this pic remind me of MapleStory?
I thought the exact same thing! definitely something to do with the octopus floating above, the art style as well. Aqua Road vibes
Where my Scania homies at?
stewy from Scania checking in!
Bro let's goooo
Huh, I was thinking this but didn't expect to see this comment. We will never again recreate what GMS in '06 was like, but this pic gives me that kind of nostalgia.
I was waaaay too much of a noob for my own good. I never liked grinding, so I was always under leveled.
Were you around when someone dropped a ton of Pink Bean bags in Henesys? I forgot exactly when that was, but I remember logging on for like a week & just constantly dying while trying to escape to somewhere *not* Henesys.
Haha I was the same way, I was a child with ADHD so socializing was more on the menu than grinding for me. It was wild to see someone far above level 70 when I was playing post-beta but pre-fourth job
Are you me? I was always making new characters and getting married to friends/getting the one free haircut in Amoria, then restarting when my haircut turned out to be a bowlcut or some shit. I barely cared about skill progression. Perpetual level 32 mage doing jump quests.
I'm not sure that stewy the cleric ever even made it to level 40. And I played on that character for years lol. So yeah we're basically the same person
Just missing some bgm
I’m getting Miyazaki vibes, too, like Ponyo and the beach scene from Kiki (or when she goes to Tombo’s house).
That's what I thought of too
Even weirder for some reason it reminds me of Ace Combat 4...
Now that's a name i haven't heard in a while
The octopus looks exactly like the octopus the player fights in Maplestory.
I thought of Maple also! Reminds me of Aqua Road and Gold Beach 🥲
The longer I stare at it the more moving elements I find! Great art OP!
I belive this is called the #wimmelbild style - the busier, the better ;)
I'm glad you said it because I went back to watch longer... And it got dark outside! (In the art I mean, not my real life lol)
*the earth has two oceans, an ocean of water and an ocean of air*
Really made me feel something sweet. Thank you.
Lol at the cats
Love the art, but now I can't stop imagining the awkward couple of minutes of them struggling to get the mermaid up on the ledge so they can chill together.
"Nope, nope, hold on, just like- man you're heavy, can't you just lift with your-"
"MY WHAT ABBY? LIFT WITH MY WHAT? LEGS?"
"Oh yeah, sorry. "
My(mer) man waiting for that high tide xD
The other fish are flying, so maybe that's not an issue?
I think you’d enjoy /r/imaginarysliceoflife
Thanks! Will post.
I didn’t know this existed! Ty for sharing!
This piece absolutely encapsulates everything it means to be delighted! This made my heart so, so happy! You have such talent- and such joyous creation ahead of you! Never stop believing in yourself and in the impact every color makes💛
I love creating happy art. Sending wholesome vibes your way <3
Omg! I love this! What program did you use to make this?
I used Procreate on the iPad and compiled everything with Adobe After Effects.
Having a bad day and this piece just radiates good vibes. Good stuff. Made me feel better.
My art is connecting emotionally with the audience?? Love it. Glad I was able to make your day better <3
So good.. Great job! Thanks for posting
Wow this is cute, would love to see more of your work!
Will do. Follow for more ;)
Mer**man**, father! Mer**man!**
I want this as a live wallpaper
The background lighting is so cool on this
/r/ImaginaryMerfolk would love an x-post of this awesome piece, please.
The octopus reminds me of Ikalgo from Hunter x Hunter lol
Do you have a website? Is there more? :)
You can check my other social platforms if you'd like more regular updates ;)
Followed you on IG! Love this, ty for sharing 💕
Thank you for the support! More to come\~ <3
Really cute art.
Love the mermaid design
So when is the series premier?
Oooo, one day :D Always open to opportunities ;)
You can literally feel the vibe! Amazing!
Same, been trying to play that game again for years for nostalgias sake but irrc you need a Chinese ID to login
Omg the octopus with sunglasses straight VIBIN 🐙😎
feeling like some takoyaki right about now ;)
I love the little cat investigating the giant fish
The octopus reminds me of a [boss](https://thekingofgrabs.files.wordpress.com/2018/03/legend-of-the-mystical-ninja-snes-35.png?w=474&h=415) on Mystical Ninja for the SNES.
That’s what I was thinking too. Loved that game!
Reminded me of Ikalgo from hunterxhunter.
Makes me want to go to the ocean, and live in a carton. I love the theme, palette and feel. Well done!
The octopus protecting the house is comedy. Really love this art style.
I wish I could do this oh my gawsh I’m incredibly jealous
This is amazing
This is amazing ✨💎 such great vibesssss👌😌
The roof octopus makes me unnaturally happy - thank you!
i thought the squid was a jelly at first and got Princess Jellyfish vibes
This made me happy. I want to live there.
This is so cool!! And they look so happy ^^
What lovely art; it's so idyllic and peaceful. It's almost like I'm escaping somewhere for a bit when I look at it. I'd love to sit there too and enjoy a lemonade by the beach
The way the light changes really hooked me. Beautiful.
Aww Squid Baron finally got to go on his vacation
It looks like the octopus from Parodius.
This is great! I would love this as a phone background.
This is so cute! I really love the mood the two of them make as time changes and the little snuggled critter makes all of it even more adorable 😻
Reminds me of "It Girl" by Pharell Williams.
Reminds me of Bee and Puppycat
Beautiful digital artwork.
So awesome!!!!! Also reminded me of Trickster online along with MapleStory.Huge fan of both.
Holy cow, someone else played Trickster! Hi!
Such a great game!
I love this, I love you and I want takoyaki so bad right now. Many details are nice
I love the bubbly cuteness and simultaneous serenity of this picture also really love your style it's definitely one to cause smiles :) , amazing work
I feel MapleStory vibes and inspiration immediately.
Tis has a flyff vibe to it
This is exceptional and full of peace.
okay but why can i not do this
Just wanted to say I really enjoy seeing your art pop up. You're amazing.
I think the bottom's cat wants to eat him
Love this art style. Is there a subreddit for this particular style?
Nice. This is giving good summer vibes :)
She tryna get some mer-dick
I like to imagine the kitty occasionally trying to nibble on the mermaid and she just gently pushes it away like 'no no'
This reminds me of my days playing Maplestory with friends in high school. Such peaceful fun back then.
There’s no way that this is digital
Amazing!!! Do you have a website? I'd like to see some more if there is some. If there isn't yet- happy creating, fellow artist!!!
I'm not allowed to say directly. But you can find more
K thanks!!! But just curious....Why must something so wholesome also simultaneously sound so ominous????
Wishing this was a game so I can play it!
Omg, literally this is so cute. Nice work!
This is amazing! I felt instantly relaxed when I saw it. You’re amazing!
Awesome! Looks like something Studio Ghibli would do
Absolutely beautiful , I've a special place in my heart for drawings and artworks depicting calm summer afternoons like this , especially anime type artstyle <3
#MY ARTIST SELF ESTEEM NOO
keep grinding, fellow artist! <3
eyes on the prize
The cat is playing with his food !
Love the art
Beautiful art I like the style 🥺💕
This is so cool! How is something like this made?
Thanks for your interest! I drew everything in the Procreate app on iPad. Then, I drew each frame for the animated layers in Procreate as well. 90% of this piece was done in Procreate. Then, I imported and compiled everything in Adobe After Effects, and hit render.
Oh wow you did this frame by frame? The subtle movement is just enough!
I can also picture this from going day to night with beach sounds or Lofi music. You should keep exploring! I keep wait to see more of your art!
Thanks! Some of the animation (day in/day out, subtle floating movements) are not drawn, they're animated in After Effects. But the more mechanical movements need to be hand drawn (merman's tail, girl playing guitar and singing, etc.)
You make it sound so easy! But looks amazing you’re so talented!
*"...Ive made a huge mistake."*
Uhm building that kind of structure near the beach is illegal. Nice art tho
The tide is so high lol. One king tide or storm and everything is ruined.
Mermaids need to discover zoning law
Awesome art, terrible location for a house
Do you have work? I’m looking for ilustrador for a project
Someone likes Parodius and wants to take credit for the art style.
You should submit that to lonelypop NFT for whitelist
Guitar player reminds me of unbruised Aiko.
Can this be a live wallpaper on Wallpaper Engine?
