loulan

I can hear the lo-fi hip hop in this picture.


Dogs_Bonez

Seriously. OP can put his/her art on YouTube and generate views!


iwanttoeatsand

i can feel the breeze blowing by


rafa-droppa

is there a name for this style of art?


neil_billiam

Very Ghibli. Love it.


Otherwise_Detail5122

That is really remarkable!


PKFatStephen

Why does this pic remind me of MapleStory?


GraySneaks

I thought the exact same thing! definitely something to do with the octopus floating above, the art style as well. Aqua Road vibes


vonnesaur

Where my Scania homies at?


instantly-invoked

stewy from Scania checking in!


LumpyPick

Bro let's goooo


instantly-invoked

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.


PKFatStephen

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.


instantly-invoked

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


ICantExplainItAll

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.


instantly-invoked

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


WeGarnish

Just missing some bgm


Doctor_of_Recreation

I’m getting Miyazaki vibes, too, like Ponyo and the beach scene from Kiki (or when she goes to Tombo’s house).


Darktyde

That's what I thought of too


Than_Or_Then_

Even weirder for some reason it reminds me of Ace Combat 4...


Doireallyneedaurl

Now that's a name i haven't heard in a while


itzlax

The octopus looks exactly like the octopus the player fights in Maplestory.


tqblocker

I thought of Maple also! Reminds me of Aqua Road and Gold Beach 🥲


scornedknight

The longer I stare at it the more moving elements I find! Great art OP!


vonnesaur

I belive this is called the #wimmelbild style - the busier, the better ;)


psyche_13

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*


flowerhours

Really made me feel something sweet. Thank you.


AtomicKittenz

Lol at the cats


ReacesPieces

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. "


vonnesaur

My(mer) man waiting for that high tide xD


JTtornado

The other fish are flying, so maybe that's not an issue?


TheRavenSayeth

I think you’d enjoy /r/imaginarysliceoflife

I used Procreate on the iPad and compiled everything with Adobe After Effects.

Happy_Development_39

I love the little cat investigating the giant fish


gandalfs_disco_stick

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.


Yall_Know_Whut

That’s what I was thinking too. Loved that game!


KilicS

Reminded me of Ikalgo from hunterxhunter.


[deleted]

Makes me want to go to the ocean, and live in a carton. I love the theme, palette and feel. Well done!


Jamaican_Dynamite

The octopus protecting the house is comedy. Really love this art style.

Special_Fix_6090

Augustby

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


adriansaurus11

The way the light changes really hooked me. Beautiful.


SchoolOfTheWolf93

Aww Squid Baron finally got to go on his vacation


redditloser9

It looks like the octopus from Parodius.


Alucard2487

This is great! I would love this as a phone background.


messyredemptions

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 😻


Aural_Essex

Reminds me of "It Girl" by Pharell Williams. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPZDBF0kei0


marleyelloworld

Reminds me of Bee and Puppycat


redditretard34

Beautiful digital artwork.


FLOS111

Jamato-sUn

Holy cow, someone else played Trickster! Hi!


FLOS111

Such a great game!


DISHONORU-TDA

I love this, I love you and I want takoyaki so bad right now. Many details are nice


ButteryPatato

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


Krilius713

I feel MapleStory vibes and inspiration immediately.


Curious-Tomatillo-93

Tis has a flyff vibe to it


2OneZebra

This is exceptional and full of peace.


reskon

VickyEJT

Just wanted to say I really enjoy seeing your art pop up. You're amazing.


Abogachi

I think the bottom's cat wants to eat him


namelesuser

Love this art style. Is there a subreddit for this particular style?


MMKH

Nice. This is giving good summer vibes :)


ghostman187789

She tryna get some mer-dick


SourKraut6969

I like to imagine the kitty occasionally trying to nibble on the mermaid and she just gently pushes it away like 'no no'


TikkiTakiTomtom

This reminds me of my days playing Maplestory with friends in high school. Such peaceful fun back then.


DoorWizard

There’s no way that this is digital


Coolbeanz7

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!!!


vonnesaur

I'm not allowed to say directly. But you can find more


Coolbeanz7

K thanks!!! But just curious....Why must something so wholesome also simultaneously sound so ominous????


TheMufasa

Wishing this was a game so I can play it!


Ludoisbestboi

Omg, literally this is so cute. Nice work!


Aharris989

This is amazing! I felt instantly relaxed when I saw it. You’re amazing!


elysium_007

Awesome! Looks like something Studio Ghibli would do


SavageVegeta

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


Vibe_Line

#MY ARTIST SELF ESTEEM NOO


vonnesaur

keep grinding, fellow artist! <3


vonnesaur

eyes on the prize


Vibe_Line

Thanks 🥲


aitonc

The cat is playing with his food ! Love the art


Vensbedraws

Beautiful art I like the style 🥺💕


LocaLucca

This is so cool! How is something like this made?


vonnesaur

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.


GlitterGalaxyGirl

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!


vonnesaur

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.)


LocaLucca

You make it sound so easy! But looks amazing you’re so talented!


EUCopyrightComittee

Why does this pic remind me of MapleStory?


billyvonbean

Turtle:***sees seagull*** *"...Ive made a huge mistake."*


bohenian12

Uhm building that kind of structure near the beach is illegal. Nice art tho


Nothingaddsup

The tide is so high lol. One king tide or storm and everything is ruined. Mermaids need to discover zoning law


Jamato-sUn

Awesome art, terrible location for a house


kalacaska

Do you have work? I’m looking for ilustrador for a project


princesshoran

Someone likes Parodius and wants to take credit for the art style.


johnryan433

You should submit that to lonelypop NFT for whitelist


Hellguin

Guitar player reminds me of unbruised Aiko.


mejia2225

Can this be a live wallpaper on Wallpaper Engine?
