First Lunar Eclipse of 2020 (January)

Hello, friend!

It’s eclipse time! Lunar eclipses don’t get as much attention as solar eclipses but I think both are just as awesome and amazing! Anything celestial fascinates me.

Here is a small homage to the first lunar eclipse of the year (that is also visible here in Asia!):

I drew inspiration for the design from Japanese kitsunes since this moon is also called the Wolf Moon by Native Americans. I love wolves and drawing wolf ears so it all worked out 😀

I’m really happy with myself on how the lighting turned out since I wanted to include the whole “moon gets shadowed by Earth” element in this piece. I’ve never really been adventurous with my lighting and its something I really want to work on this year. And this is my first step with it!

Hope you enjoy this and, if the eclipse is visible where you live, tonight’s celestial happening!

Peace ^.^
