"A little, blue flower and the grave of a white-haired boy? That’s a sad story Shin”
“Well I couldn’t think of anything else Lyz, sorry…”
“It’s alright. But…Do you think they will ever meet again?”
“Who knows…Maybe they’ve both reincarnated as humans this time.”


Characters: Lyzlot (top) and Shinkami (bottom) from my story "NuError" *group here Point Right :iconnuerror:*

MY BABIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIESSSSSS :iconcryforeverplz: 
I may not be sharing too many things concerning NuError lately, but I'm doing lots of writing and sketching in the background so this will change over time:flirty:  
Yesterday I decided to take a little break again and finish a drawing of my babies _(:3_)TL

Lyzlot and Shinkami here are resting on the top of a hill that's covered in flax flowers. Lyz is resting against the tombstone (I wonder how many spotted him without me pointing it out XD ) and Shinkami's lying on the ground, his head resting in safety under the shadow of the tombstone while his hand starts decomposing with the exposure to light _(:3_)TL //go take your pills Shin!! ;A;
This is actually the place where Shinkami and Lyzlot first talked to each other when they were little. It's a very important place for the both of them, mostly for Shin, since he used to hide among the blue flowers to avoid getting bullied for his strange skin ;3; *his blue hair was easy to spot, so hiding among blue things was one of the few options he had*

This drawing here is also related to a short bedtime story that Shinkami narrates to Lyzlot. \(;u; \)
/Story Spoilers/ 
During the Viam Experientiae (the Road of Trials), all students have to acquire their Anima (=their 2nd half of their soul). Yet the first time they go to sleep after they do, they are forced to see moments of their past lifes in their dreams. Those dreams are usually not pleasant at all, since most of them consist of all the deaths their soul has experienced with each reincarnation.  
Lyzlot acquires his Anima first, and therefore has nightmares during the night. Not being able to sleep, he asks Shinkami to tell him a bedtime story to take his mind off the nightmares. Yet unsure of what to narrate, Shinkami improvises on the spot, using the flax-flower hill and the memories he has of this place as inspiration to create a short story, that ends up on a slightly depressing tone in the end though (well done Shin omg how kind of you _(:3_)TL )


:pointr: You can read Shinkami's short bedtime story here:  NuError - Mini Stories 00.1

"Flax" is a flower used since ancient times. In Egypt and other countries, it symbolizes purity. Its blooms are blue, and many parts of this plant can be used in various applications. For many thousand years now, even in modern times, flax flowers are used to weave the lining inside coffins.  
Shinkami is particularly fond of this flower not only because of its color and meaning, but also because of its relation to death.

Art comment: Perspective-wise this gave me some grief and neck-pain from tilting my head so much haha but I really enjoyed coloring this picture *u* I'm trying out some new brushes lately and I like them a lot! Also: The flowers killed me XD

OMG THAT COMMENT :iconleeblushplz: 
I WAS STOPPING MYSELF FROM REPLYING CUZ I WANTED TO READ IT AGAIN AND AGAIN :iconuhuhuhuplz:

omg that's so sweet of you dear ;7;  THANK YOU SO MUCH AAAH 
AND OMG VIP HAHA THANKS!!! Emoji13 

Glad you think that of the colors! :la: It's true, I put a lot of time in trying to see that the colors will harmonize as best as possible, because I wanted the flowers and Shin to be the main focus ;u; Therefore I couldnt make the sky blue! It would take away the focus from the blue flowers °^°

AND OMG SRSLY?? the grave was totally done in a hurry haha glad the texture of it makes it look ok though ;7; 

and omg GLAD YOU SPOTTED LYZLOT TOO :happybounce: Yeah the patterns on his clothes: can never leave them out *q* 

AWWWWWW BABY COME HERE :iconbrohugplz: Sry for the angsty feels ;7; But yeah haha it really like drawing that part of Shinkami ;3; Since it's a very important part of his life, so drawing it just--- SOBBBB /cries :iconcryforeverplz:

oh dear--- THANKIES AGAIN ;7; The flowers were...---- they drove me crazy :iconsrapplz: Had to draw them in different perspectives so that they would look ok _(:3_)TL I drew around 30 different ones, then copy pasted a few of them to fill some empty spaces ;u; But maaan yup hand drawing every single one was-- //faints :faint:

Oh as for the arches: They are more symbolic in a sense! :nod: Basically those symbols are songs. They are called Canaria in the story and are prophecies! They get created after a person dies of a certain sickness in the story :iconrazycryplz: So I drew them to subtly point at the "Death" theme again, as well as because the story pretty much is based on the concept of whether Shinkami will fullfill those prophecies or not. They are also there to hint that there's still people dying in NuError's world, and that the world is still broken by that disease ;u; 
//and omg I just giggled so much at the kininarimasu!!! SO CUTE :iconcheekplz:

and OMG NO WAY DEAR! IT'S PERFECTLY FINE THANK YOU SO MUCH! :iconbrohugplz: Your comment made me really really happy ´7`I TOTALLY APPRECIATE IT AND GET MORE MOTIVATION AND INSPIRATION BY KINDNESS LIKE YOURS!!!SO THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! ILU TOO AAH :iconletmehugyouplz:
