Series: The Daily Marker Art Card #22

Another Faery Ink digi and I thought that I would have a go at making this into a nighttime scene for a change — the last third of the colouring challenge really does make me think about ways to do things a little differently, which is good for the artistic brain, but a pain when you’ve spent most of the day out of the house and are trying to come up with something you can do before it’s time to go make food and be sociable.

I kept it comparatively simple by making it monochromatic, that way I didn’t have to think about what red hair or yellow wings would look like next to water under a night sky!
