In Thai poetry and literature, the word 'lotus' [บัว(หลวง) pronounced "Boo-Ah" as one short monotone syllable] sometimes refers to feminine breast. Whereas Buddhists usually worship Buddha image with lotus, and/or perform Wai, an Asian gesture used in various situations as well as praying, by forming the hands as the shape of a lotus. Lotus is a symbol of wisdom and purity in Thai culture. I'm not good at Symbolist art, by the way, it happens in Thailand that a hopeless patient might turn to credo rather than medical therapy.
The flower by her cheek is 'บัวสาย', and in English it's actually called water lily.

The heart/love shape and the emblem of Deviant Art:
The design was inspired entirely by the idea of love itself. It encapsulates the love of arts in every aspect of life.
With a blend of tattoo designs, street graffiti, some doodling and a touch of love, the design was made as such that it gives pure self-satisfaction and one can feel a sense of belonging with DA when wearing the shirt - especially to the DA enthusiasts all over the world.
The bright colours; red (Deviant) and yellow (Art) makes it easier to read from afar, thus the indirect promotion of DA.
For the Gears Of War battle! My friends gave me the idea of having Jake the dog from Adventure take the place of Marcus Fexin in the GoW series. I thought that was a pretty hilarious idea so I did that for this piece. Not only that but I also put Finn in there as well taking the place of Dom. I am pretty happy with the way this came out. I tried to keep with the simple cartoon style of Adventure Time which was actually harder than I tought it was going to be. I had to stop myself from painting shadows and stuff like that. Haha
