|The Chinese Seasonals Almanac project has begun!|
I guess it goes without saying that I am better known here as Antarel-who-does-Pokémon-fanart, but I'm really a digital artist who is currently working freelance for board game illustrations. I formerly worked with in a video game studio and helped with projects ranging from Naughty Dog's The Last of Us, Part II to in-house first-person shooters.

02 - Dormant Creatures Start to Twitch
aka Larvae Twitch in Their Cocoons
Season: Spring Begins (SPRING)
Duration: February 10 - February 14
After a long period of hiatus, I finally got this one out! At first, I wasn't too sure with using the Chinese windmill butterfly as imagery, but it DOES overwinter as a pupa. The shape of its cocoon is also in the "dormant" figure. Note that there are still mentions of ice and snow at this point (see next in the series).
Previous: The East Wind Melts the Ice
Next in line: Fish Swim Upstream, Breaking the Ice (With their Backs)
I had the privilege of working with these awesome guys for their project. Geek Grind Coffee is now online, and even more lovely info on their webpage below:
Artistic note: designs were made in Clip Studio Paint because of its vector brushing power.
