LAUDE NOVELLA by mementomoryo LAUDE NOVELLA by mementomoryo
Laude novella sia cantata
A l'alto donna encoronata

Fresca vergene doncella
Priomo fior, rosa novella
Tutto'l mondo a te s'apella
Nella bonor fosti nata

Tu se' verga, tu se'fiore
Tu se' luna de splendore
Volunta avemo e core
De venir a te, ornata


Donít let go of my hand
Repair joyfully, probing, the entire globe
if this knot of mine overflows the world
I only want to connect our fortunes that simply met each other at the same time
Iíll protect the world from within my knot
Iíll create the future


I'm pretty much dead from exhaustion after working on this piece for two days straight, but I hope it's satisfactory to me even after I get some rest and look at it again.

Like the Aradia and Vriska paintings, I've combined religious imagery and Homestuck into something... weird and kind of pretentiously cool.

Also, Kanaya is a BAMF and this painting doesn't come close to portraying that side of her.


Pencil, watercolors, gold watercolor and slight Copics on hot press watercolor paper.

All of your watercolor art is simply amazing, and I adore all of the symbolism and depth in your homestuck paintings! <3
Wow! Your work is fantastic! I love the style.

Never thought I'd see Homestuck art based off of a song I've been listening to forever yet thought hardly anyone else had ever heard of it before.
What are you talking about? It's not pretentious! It's just plain gorgeous. :3

It's okay that this isn't her as a BAMF; like all with the Aspect of Space, she is also a nurturing, maternal soul. You have portrayed her as a mother, not as a warrior. It's still a perfectly legitimate facet of her character.

And may I say that I am completely in love with this!!!! <3

There is something so... Art Nouveau about this! I have no doubt Alphonse Mucha would take a shining to it!

Your use of transparency and subtlety is particularly impressive! Personally, I have a great deal of trouble conveying that with watercolors.
Her hood might be my favorite part.<3
