Shinsekai Yori: Physalis by sakonma Shinsekai Yori: Physalis by sakonma
:frail: Shun Aonuma from Shinsekai Yori :frail:

♫-------------------------------------------♫

Drawn right after watching Shinsekai Yori Episode 18, because woooooow~ So damn much inspiration! :iconasdfghplz:
:bulletyellow:First, the Natsumatsuri, and like Satoru said "It's the festival where the dead return from the underworld" :iconcryforeverplz:

:bulletyellow:Third, Kaburagi Shisei's new clothes. Shun was meant to surpass him, so I simply HAD to draw him in Kaburagi's clothes :flirty:

Ah goodness I miss Shun so much~ :iconsighingplz: My heart hurts every time I draw him but it makes me happy at the same time too~TuT

♫-------------------------------------------♫

:frail: You know, if I didn't have to study, I would definitely animate this, making his eyes blink and then smile, while the lanterns are flickering, and then have "Sad Song" or "Quiet Village" from the Shinsekai Yori OST play in the background :iconimhorrifiedplz: *can someone remind me after I go back to full-active-mode???*

:frail: Oh and of course the title :pointr:
Physalis alkekengi is a flower also known as "Chinese Lantern". It's orange-red, and I believe the Asian festival-lanterns were inspired by it :heart:
Physalis in Greek also means "Bubble". Something beautiful yet quick to fade :iconsighingplz:

♫-------------------------------------------♫

Time: ~4-5 hours
Media: Sai | Photoshop
