Sea Aster by clockworkViper Sea Aster by clockworkViper
PLEASE VIEW FULLSIZE! DA is making it fuzzy :)
I'm really into circular compositions rn can you tell hehe x)
Looked into what flowers live by the ocean, and sea aster was the prettiest/easiest to draw, so I went with that. Hopefully it doesn't mean something morbid, since I know there's supposed to be loads of meaning behind what flowers you give people or smt like that D:

Gonna try to do at least three for pearlapisbomb and here is the first day! The theme was ocean/seasonal so i was like YEAH gonna draw lapis as a mermaid and pearl wading into the sea in fancy knight armour and it's gonna be really cool, and i drew it all out and then remembered that wednesday is the au day :') 
Going for a fairy story style for this, hopefully it worked uwu

not sure about sea aster, but asters in general mean patience, elegance, daintiness, and afterthought. pretty appropriate imo!
it is also said to ward off snakes and evil spirits :>

this is gorgeous by the way, i love how you positioned the sun behind the flower!

Oooo perfect, thanks for letting me know! I didn't think to look up normal asters hehe x)
Thank you so much! I was worried that flower would get a little lost so I wanted a way to highlight it :D

The one big no-no for flower giving I know of is roses in Japan, as they're a symbol of death there (though I don't remember the reason why). That's why for example a character like Marluxia from Kingdom Hearts can use a scythe and trail rose petals as he moves.

Not sure if there's too many more grim ones other than that but regardless it's a nice creative idea and the circular focus works well to emphasize the important parts to the piece. I might've even gotten rid of the black space and just let it be on a transparent background even but it works really well regardless. :icondragonhugplz:

Oooo okay, I never knew that! That makes a lot of those magical girl animes look a lot more sinister hehe 
Thank you very much! <3 I was really undecided about whether to leave the black or not bc of the framing, but I'll upload the next one without it and see how it looks, thanks for the advice! :D

Yup! There's a lot of interesting culture wrapped up into media and anime in particular. Like the reason a lot of anime happens in high schools is because of how strict and judging the world is of people in Japan after high school. More specifically in how efficiently they are expected to work, and how (men at least) are expected to perfectly fit into the three highs in order to be fit for a relationship most times. High school is a wonderful setting for them and for those anime because it's usually one of the most carefree parts of a Japanese person's life and they usually remember it fondly.

But yeah, I'm no artist or art critic but I think it would be nice to experiment with that and see which one you like best. Take care for now and I hope we get to see more soon. :icondragontail2:

Gah yeah I can imagine ono I know there are so many people these days over there that just completely withdraw from everything because of how much pressure there is to conform to roles and society. 
That makes sense though, I did wonder why so many of them were set at that time! Though I guess I look back on my secondary school years in a similar fashion so it makes sense c:

Yeah you could say I ended up being the same way for the past few years. More out of a feel of the world moving on without me and some form of isolation after I was diagnosed with depression. In some respects I can definitely sympathize with extremely reserved Otaku because I'm like an American version of them in some ways. Still have a lot of hope for the future though so things are getting better I would say.

I've watched a lot of cultural videos from Gaijin Goomba of the Game Theorists to learn a little more about culture behind popular media. He does mostly games but he covers a wide variety of things, with a focus on Japan since he's been to Japan for extended trips as a teacher and spent years learning about and integrating into their culture. That's where I'd say I learned a good amount of what I know about Japan and I've been watching him since he integrated into the Game Theorists. Ever since then he's been my favorite of the producers on their team, including MatPat. I'll leave a link to his channel in case you'd like to check him out.

I had some pretty good memories from High School as well. Looking back I don't dwell on the good parts or bad for that matter, but I've also not got a job but am still decently well off for the time being. (We still have money troubles after my disability check comes in but we're able to celebrate a bit before the money runs out). So yeah, some interesting food for thought and another little interesting piece of info on a world I really haven't gotten to see much of yet, and may not get to. :icondragonnodplz:
