Sell Your Soul by MonsieurWilliam Sell Your Soul by MonsieurWilliam
God. I am so tired.
This drawing took me a good while to finish, something around a whole week I guess... Yes I'm slow.
I felt stuck for so long, I just couldn't get the background how I wanted to. I've tried like 8 different BG for this one and as always, it's when I decided to screw things up that some kind of magic happened and satisfied the epileptic schizofreak I am.
Y DO I EVEN TRY?!I rage now

And I kinda owe the title to Christopher WOOL actually...
Hmpf.

Aaaanyway, hope you still like it guys ! Have a nice and bright day !

I cant sell my soul, I already sold it to my lil brother for a bottle of coca cola. He's still got the paperwork and everything. ;.;

Honestly I am really captivated by this illustration... I dunno what it is, it's a combination of the expression she has and the otherworldly feel of all the background elements. And the text being so off-centre, and in a really starkly contrasting style makes it somehow... Opressive, and I really like that!

I really like it! Keep up the good work, the rest of your works have a really cool style as well!

Mixe des styles vraiment incroyable ! Comme dit précédemment, cela ferait une super couverture d'album, quel qu'il soit !
Sublime harmonie des couleurs et encore géniale pour la fusion du style mlp - art nouveau - jeu vidéo old version - et l'tiens !

Merci beaucoup ! Je pensais pas que toutes mes transgressions de style allaient plaire autant que le reste, je craignais un peu que ça garde un look totalement expérimental...
Mais au final bah... C'est trop amusant de choisir des styles avec leur règles et de les éclater délibérément.
Plus ça va, plus je me dis que j'ai enfin trouvé ce avec quoi je suis à l'aise. (Et en plus les gens apprécient !)

Luna didn't sell her soul, she was swindled.

I know she didn't literally sold her soul but... when I decided to write something here, I first looked for a font I felt like I could include easily, without really knowing what it was supposed say. And when I took this stencil style, I remembered about some of Christopher WOOL's artwork; "Sell the house, Sell the car, sell the kids" where he used this kind of font on a white canvas. At first, as I really love his work, I was about to take the whole title how it was, and write it on this picture.
But then I agreed with myself that it would be pure nonsense and I had to change it a bit. And as "Sell your soul" is a way to imply a strong feel of desperate corruption, I thought it was a good compromise between the theme of the drawing (Luna/Nightmare Moon) and the reference I wanted to make (WOOL)

So yeah, the title is not technically accurate, but I completely assume it. Thanks for your comment \o/

"Sell Your Soul"...
...It sounds like a lyric to a song.

MonsieurWilliam Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2014
Yeah, I also thought that when I finished it. Even though this was not inspired by any particular song at all :shrug:

Wow, this is one of the weirdest style mixes I've ever seen, but somehow it works. Keep doing you experimental work, it's some of the most original MLP art I've come across.
