さらば だ. After A Long Day.
See, there’s not always one death in a life. Getting too old or too sick may be the end. But loss, and hurt, and feeling very, very sad- those are deaths too, at times.
They make ghosts of you; though everyone insists you’re still alive.
i’ve had this story in my head forever (circa 2007) and i did some reevaluating of the narrative + new characters designs recently (with the help of mickey)
it’s a love story that stretches across the universe, central themes being food, [fake] space science, and friendship!
(for a sense of scale between heroes and the villain: the main cast initially works on a space-station-restaurant, which can be seen being worn around Marizpan’s hair)

As promised, here is the full, updated cheat sheet for my Real Watercolors for Photoshop. If you own the set, this is a very handy thing to have! I will be adding this to the download file on both my Creative Market and Gumroad shops next week (as a PDF).
Thanks, as always, for the support for this custom brush set - it has been overwhelming.
