Reposted from one of my sideblogs.
This is an interesting one. It’s a fanart of a fanart! For those of you who don’t know, for the past few months Xzazupsilon and LizaWithAZed in the Homestuck fandom have been rallying artists and musicians alike to put together a sequel to the unofficial fan album, Land of Fans and Music. Just recently Xzaz posted an update to the list of track art that was still needed, and I saw that cover art was needed. I was feeling particularly inspired that day, so I drew this on a whim, without really asking.
The composition is largely inspired by the original fanart that was the cover for the first Land of Fans and Music and also by one of the pages towards the end of the first half of Act 5 of the comic itself, with Terezi’s house built up high and overlooking the Land of Thought and Flow. I was originally going to draw a Sburb player sitting on one of the roofs of the house overlooking LOFAM, but that idea eventually got scrapped in favor of keeping the focus on the land itself.
The music at the very bottom of the drawing, near the two fans in the clouds, is actually taken directly the beginning of the right hand section of the sheet music of Tyler Dever’s Chronicles, albeit a little bit askew.
Overall I’m rather pleased with this piece! It was really interesting to draw and I feel that it’s a worthy tribute to all the talented people I have met through this fandom. The music staves were a bit difficult to draw, but they were also pretty fun at the same time even though I had to put my tablet into precision mode just to get them to line up. This piece took me about two and a half to three hours and almost 40 layers not counting the texture layer to complete - the composition was surprisingly complex to work with, but the results were well worth it.
I did this without asking or without any warning that I was going to take on doing the LOFAM 2 cover, but if this is used as the official cover I won’t have any complaints. Even if it’s not used as the official cover, I won’t be mad, because I at least greatly enjoyed drawing this.
The talented fan artists (musicians included!) that have all been an inspiration to me are a huge part of why this fandom is dear to me. Hopefully that fact has been well reflected in this artwork!
Late reblogging, but this is awesome and I’m honored that the Candles melody made the bottom!
