...I like to look at the stars too

Newstar (from ElfQuest), often called the 'elfiest of all elves', is a wolf-blooded elf who grew up from a very young age with the immortal and agrarian Sun Villagers. She has become a Sun Villager in every way but for the mortality that her blood brings. We never saw very much of her, but in one story where she visits the Wolfriders, she says to the resident stargazer/ladies-man, 'And I like to look at the stars, too'. It's a memorable quote because she follows it up by using a pickup line that he himself is famous for 'Did you know you can see them much better if you lean back?'. But we never actually get to see Newstar stargazing. So I wanted to draw that. There's a fair bit of symbolism in this in my choice of twilight, rather than night — as she herself is caught between two worlds ofday and night — and the downward movement of the shooting star and the slope of where she sits (her mortality) contrasting the upward cast of her gaze (living her life as if she were an immortal).
