Fleeting encounter/Raven and Fox Child

What was it the raven said to the fox child on that long ago night, when the stars had been freshly burned into the night?

Edit: I think a little of "Let the Right One In" crept into this illustration. Thanks, Lettuce, for the recommendation.

Wow, excellent. Color, line and comp. Harks back to the Golden Age of Illustration, imho. Also; I appreciate the simplicity and unclutteredness. It looks so easy, but it ain’t.

My teenage phantasies were much like this. Very mysterious and speaking to the heart (but what does the Raven say?)

Oh, wow! A fox child and a raven. Sounds like the makings of a great mystical fable. Beautiful and wondrous!!

"...the darkness of the night is only fleeting like the rays of moonlight" said the Raven.

Nice picture!

This reminds me of the illustrations for Where The Wild Things Are. (Which is, by the way, a compliment.)
