Illusion, fear, anxiety, confusion… Takumi’s whole arc of insecurity and being unable to see things clearly (especially in the Conquest route) was fitting. I took advantage of the pool of water normally depicted on the card for a reflection; eyes closed, more clearly unhappy, a full moon and starless sky behind him. A truer representation of self? But dimmer. I’m no longer doing these in order, so the next one will be a surprise too!
While deciding how to draw Demeter, I brushed up on my knowledge of her, and learned that poppy flowers were her emblem. They grow like weeds in wheat and barley fields, and were seen as a good omen from her.
