Playing with the Stars by Loopy-Lupe Playing with the Stars by Loopy-Lupe
Twinkle twinkle little star,
how I wonder where you are, right? ♥♪!?

I was at a bonfire with my friends and we played "Ghost in the Graveyard", kinda like hide and seek. I noticed at midnight that the moonlight was sooo bright and was shining it's white light on everything! Very beautiful and brought about this.

I always got a vision that the Star Hill is like a little playground for little star children, just flying around and stuff!
And so when the group arrives there, they think that they are all strangers, get scared and hide.
But then a homesick Geno comes and yells out that he is ♥♪!?, another star!
The children come out and start swirling around the group, never seeing any real people before and they all oogle at the little nimbus boy Mallow! Ahaha...
But the stars ask Geno why he is there, and why of all things is he a DOLL?!
With the moonlight shining off of the neon flowers above, he tells them all his tale of how he is "borrowing" a young boy's doll to help do his job of recovering the fallen pieces that once made up his home in the sky, the star road ^^

Right here, he's telling them that they should be calling him "Geno" now.
"Hee, okay "geeeeeno" if you really want to be called that!"
He's in a very happy mood because he is seeing part of his home again, and is playing with them :D

See, if I had the balls and tablet to make A WHOLE SMRPG comic, I'd have the plot and story dialogue down pat >: )

All aside, I was inspired by several pictures, one was :iconminaya: Geno whirl, another was a melty paint picture on Pixiv.net (really cool art site, has different SMRPG art than DA, but it's in Jap)
Celestial spangles galore, you all know how much I love this guy, and I decided that a softer, cuter style would work with this concept and just look at him!!! ^^
Such beautiful lighting... Can you find all of the symbolism in this?


Also, I keep mixing up the damn heart and note in his name...

PS - It's a wonder how Geno never ran into Rosalina, or if they are aware of each other, how they may be connected...

I love the pale bluish-white light cast on everything in a full moon. It's so beautiful, i've often imagined how cool it would be if you could "moon tan" and your skin turns blue instead of orange!
But yes, stars play a big roll in many games and cartoons and stuff, so i wouldn't be able to understand all the symbolism, but i recognize some symbols from here and there!

PS: What is "Ghost in the Graveyard"?

Oh yes, it could be an illustration!

Ghost in the graveyard is a game kind of like tag, only hide and try to get back to your base.

Thank you very much, the concept is a peek into my working mind xD
I see a bunch of badass and slick looking pictures of him, yet not as many that show the softer side of him, which we all KNOW is there :3

Indeed, he also has a softer side, which we can briefly see through the game :giggle:
Your perception of him is totally awesome, I adore it =3

I'm honestly not to fond of Geno, but this totally makes me reconsider. XD

Quite honestly, I love everything you did here. From the shading, to the coloring, and especially the line art. All of those different elements come together to makes this one of the best art pieces I've ever seen.

Thanks! Yes, the line art was the rock for this picture and the lighting was a risk, but it came out very well, thank you for the love :D

Very cute and nice picture loopy.. your description help us in the understading of the Art.

The Night and Stelar background was pretty nice made, the Shape of all Star were very good and you make an very good 'glow' effect, And the best.. Geno looks very cute and well make in the picture(All this doll factions are pretty well made and his eyes too).

For that an all, This picture deserved:

'The Von Beldo Seal of Approval'

you deserved it

Thanks! Yeah, I thought the art would make more sense if I put my story behind it :D
The lighting was a lot different than what I normally do, Geno was most definetly my favorite part, with his lighting and how his eyes came out glowing... ah...

and yay! seal of approval!
