Scythe Dancer by Serio555 Scythe Dancer by Serio555
Well, this one follows my old formula of "girl in front of moon" drawings.

But come to think of it, Lotus flowers are one of the favourite seat cushion for various Eastern gods and goddessess (Buddha, Kuan Yin, etc). Considering a lot of those gods/godesses are rather....... heavily built, those flowers would be pretty much single-use only, so I'd imagine that those gods go through a LOT of flowers every week.

So in the forgotten, untold part of the eastern mythology, during full moon not only the moon bunnies make rice cakes but some of the handmaidens from heaven would have to come down to earth and pick some lotus flowers for their liege. Of course, since the gods are always depicted as physically large (and thus have a proportionately large a***), the lotus flowers have to be large ones, and a wimpy little knife simply wouldn't suffice, so they'd have to be equipped with scythes.

Thus far no one have seen these flower pickers since they'd probably use the scythe to cut more than just flowers, because if people find out about these huge flowers they might think that the gods needs excercise. Plus the flowers have been specially designed so the gods don't get piles from sitting too long.


Adobe Photoshop CS, Corel Painter 8, and lots of caffeine and glucose from various sources.

Usually when I think of the word 'scythe', dark colors come to mind. I love the way you used colors to brighten that!!! Love it! :)

i dont think the character matches the nature of a scythe at all.. lol replace it with a fairy wand or hell even a flower.. but until then this doesnt make sense to me :/ i do however, like how dynamic everything is and the clouds

Looks exactly like the main character from Cute Knight. O__O

Have you ever seen the game? :sweat: It has multiple endings, and this looks as if it could definitly be one of them.

Yep, I know that game - I drew the title screen and ending pictures for it. [link]

So I guess concerning this picture other than the hairstyle, the drawing style of the face and colouring would look strikingly same-ish due to lack of variation on my preferred style. =p But I drew this before those ending pictures (although after the title pic), so I'm not sure which one's influencing which ^^;
