Lotus Harvest by Cindiq Lotus Harvest by Cindiq
I used to visit my Granparents' house a lot when I was a child and they had a super giant backyard with a lotus pond. I remember eating those tasty lotus seeds in stews or meshed into a sweet paste. I also got pricked by the stem. And also used the leaves as an umbrella (it actually works really well!). There were also plenty of fireflies and dragon flies.

Sadly, my grandparents became less active now that they reached their late 70s, so the backyard land is sold now. The pond is filled, and luxury homes are going to be built on them (my grandparents might have to move away once that's done).

Guess that's where my inspiration came from, if anyone cares haha.

I'm also quite frustrated with Adobe CS6's resizing system... When I resized the imaged for upload, it super-sharpened my image in a way I DID NOT like ;w;.

Tools: SAI, Photoshop, tablet
