I think the fading on this is really what instantly stood out to me. It reminds me of book cover art from the 80's - 90's. I think it would even look good in a book-paper kind of sepia tone.

This really fills me with nostalgia for old short horror story collections I used to read, and besides, the faded colors really lends appropriately to all the horror elements here: early night/early morning twilight sky; dark bluish-green leaves and pale brown tree-trunks (which the sky also lends to); a similar set of tones on the house; of course the pale 'everything' on the banshee...

Long story short, keep whatever "ate color" from this... it could come in handy. ;-)

Thank you for your nice words ^^. Among other things, I spent many hours reading and looking my fairy tale books when I was a child. Maybe this art influence me in some way. But now, I try to do my own style :3

This is pretty damn good! While I must admit, it looks quite plain and bland with color (maybe more shading and contrast with colors and shadows?) it is quite well done. The extremely high quality details make up much of what I enjoy most from this piece. It also depicts the 'banshee' in a way I don't enough of too...

Thank you for your kind words! ^^ In fact the photo ate color from the original especially from the intermediate tones. Anyway, maybe it would need a higher contrast.
