When I first finished this picture, I was absolutely not satisfied with the result I got, but couldn't find a way to picture in a better way that I had in mind. I wanted this picture to have life, power, emotion, but I hated what I made. Today, as I was reading some notes, I stumbled across a little text speaking about Maku.
"Your species has the magical capacity of a thimble. Your greatest mages, a bottle.
... Maku is the sea."
I told this in my head a thousand times while looking at the picture and listening to a Lion King music. And so I decided to to all over again. And you know this feel, when suddenly everything becomes clear and as you stand in awe, you discover a new part of yourself that was buried inside for so many years that when it comes back again there is this feel of painful relief. And there we are.
Maybe in some days, weeks or months this picture will seem bad for me, but for now, I am at peace with the result.

When Nahum ends the creation of a world, when Arussa is ready to populate it with all his souls, the duty of the Ages and Seasons begins. The first page of the story is then written by Maku, whose task is to awake the world to its very first Dawn. In this event, Spring will awaken the entire world for the first time and will use much more magic than every other year.
And this power leaves traces, as much on Maku as on Earth. His horns grow and are covered with cherry blossoms while an immense forest of sacred dimensions appears around him.
The place where he was at this event will, in addition to being marked thus, named the Land of the rising sun.
La première Aube
Quand Nahum termine la création d'un monde, quand Arussa est prêt à le peupler de toutes ses âmes, le devoir des âges et des Saisons commence. La première page de l'histoire est alors écrite par Maku, qui a pour tâche d'éveiller le monde à sa toute première Aube.
Lors de cet événement, le Printemps éveillera le monde entier pour la première fois et utilisera bien plus de magie que chaque autre année.
Et cette puissance laisse des traces, autant sur Maku que sur la Terre. Ses cornes poussent et se couvrent de fleurs de cerisier tandis qu'une immense forêt aux dimensions sacrées apparaît autour de lui.
L'endroit où il se trouvait lors de cet événement sera, en plus d'être marqué ainsi, nommé le Pays du soleil levant.
