GAIA by hakumo GAIA by hakumo
suppose it's about time i upload this while i'm not forgetful OTL

My submission for "GAIA: Vim Naturae" artbook by =Leaglem and =BokuRaC
"A charity artbook where more than 50 artists from different parts of the world join to help people in need from Colombia, where people have been suffering from constant rain. The images portrayed in the project recall nature and its power to create and destroy equally."
One massive artbook they made, thank you for the kind invitation :heart: It has been 2 years? since then.

The idea was to convey how we loves mother nature so much it started to bring both creation and destruction within herself. Sounds deep but it's no more than a 'love story' ^^ there are many symbolic things in there but mentioning them will take more than one lunch break and sleeping hours so I'll keep it as short as that for now. Looking forward to draw these characters again in possible future!
Was experimenting with different approach.. abstract like.. composition, which beat me mercilessly ^^;
I sworn not to draw fishes as many anymore (this is right after It's Better Blue), hey, look at them again lol!

This has been a big achievement for me and am glad it goes for a good reason~
Everything is better for a good reason :D

edit: Thank you very much `sTiViA for the suggestion and ^rydi1689 for the DD feature! :omg::faint: Thank you for all the encouraging comments! Quite lovely he reminds you of Howl, that charmer :heart: most likely because of that checkered cape ^-^ Howl wins with his pink~
