Some Nights by Shrineheart Some Nights by Shrineheart
Some nights, I stay up cashing in my bad luck
Some nights, I call it a draw

-"Some Nights" by fun.

I had this image banging around in my head for a day or so now. An Enderman fresh from The End trying to fathom the Overworld's night sky.

EDIT: Made some color updates based on *salShepherd's suggestions.

If there were that many stars in Minecraft, I would wait for nighttime more often :3

Being neckless...
Can your OC's spin their heads in 360's in every direction?
Like, spin or flip?

Nope, it has slightly extended left and right turn (think like an owl) but all in all they're not able to flip their heads, spin them, or remove them. The head feels attached if you try to pull on it despite having not neck. Their bodies are, in our headcanon, partially a psychic construct so as they can't really see their neck and they don't think much about it, it doesn't exist. Objects like arrows and branches can pass through the gap without issue (one of them has a pet cat that is particularly fond of sleeping in the space there) and they also do not have a hazard of choking (though they can drown in non-water liquids and they can suffocate).

Thank you. :)

I'm happy it inspired such an emotion in you! I love that song and have a couple of pictures in my gallery based on it actually! The song that actually inspired this picture was this one: [link]
Glad you enjoyed! And you're very welcome!

My knee-jerk response to seeing the thumbnail was WHAT WHAT THAT MOON IS SQUARE but then I enlarged and went oh, wait, minecraft, right!
If you don't mind a little concrit, which being of the good natured sort I doubt you do, there's something that I've observed about your coloring method, not just in this pic but in most of them. When you shade or highlight you tend to stick to the shades and tints of just your base color. This is fine in small doses but the picture will be more interesting to look at if you highlight and shade with slightly different colors, like, say, making the shadow of that grass more blue-green than just straight up green, or the highlighting on that enderman a little more violet, or giving the sky a wider range of colors than just blue to dark blue. It adds a layer of depth and complexity and richness to your coloring when you don't just stick to a single color for each thing.
Anway I say it this on this piece in particular because I really like to concept and the composition, but it just feels like there should be something more.

XD Yeah I actually debated about making it circular or square but went with the traditional Minecraftian moon.
And thank you for the crit! It's something I need to keep in mind when working with stuff like this. I plan on doing some more art today so I'll try to keep it in mind and might revisit this piece later to see what I can improve in it (cause I agree that it needs more).
