In the same Candy World as Dulcita, Mochi exists as a kind of scholar. It's actually just a title...different Mochi hold different forms of knowledge. He's a Sakura Mochi so he holds knowledge that needs to be shared.

His design is, in fact, based on the japanese Sakura Mochi (which comes wrapped in a leaf).

Another indication of my issues with art lately. His torso looks too short because of that outfit! Still...Black people look so good in light pinks (even if I refuse to wear it) so I wanted to draw that. Plus, Black men or guys of African descent never really good to look sweet and masculine at the same time (well...they do in my art, but whatev).

The outfit is based, in part, on Wa Lolita fashions but also...I added a fundoshi because shut up.

SHUT-UP

This is such a beautiful picture. I have it in my "favorites" folder, and each time I look at it I'm just amazed, the colors, the composition...Clap

Dark skin in pastel colours is so beautiful! I really like the shades and tone of the pinks you used, too, because they're not too purple-y. They're nice and warm.

THAT'S the word I was looking for! Pastels! Duh, my head was all over the place today. And yeah, I like purple but light purple is a color that's like...unless it's hair then why bother making it purple at all. It feels watered down to me.

I don't even know what I'm talking about right now o.o

Yep! I've actually had mochi in the past (just a vanilla one, not a sakura one) so using that as an outfit inspiration felt like a good way to go =)
