Having Fun with Water Magic!!

My first big drawing of the month!

Remember Liyu is a summoner and his catalyst is water? Well this is his trademark “show-off” ability haha! I like to imagine scenes where he’s cheering up a friend and he makes an incredible (and romantic) display like a garden of water lily or a field of beautiful corals with fish swimming by… <3 In short, he’s fun and has lots of possibilities!

The Manta Ray is one of the most graceful creatures on earth. Huge but gentle filter feeders, Mantas glide ginormous distances across oceans, scooping up food along the way. They stop once in awhile to visit cleaning stations like the one you see here, where small fishes eat parasitic microorganisms off of the Manta’s body. To provide a sense of scale, the yellow butterflyfish you see just beneath the Manta are about the size of your hand - photo taken at Raja Ampat, Indonesia
