My grapes are the No. 1 June Fantasy ❤️
A romantic retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s tale.
Lenia, the youngest daughter of the sea queen, is infatuated with the human world above the water. She longs especially for the one thing that grants humans eternal life: a soul. On her eighteenth birthday, when she is allowed one day at the surface, she witnesses a ship being destroyed in a violent storm and rescues one of the sailors, delivering him to shore near a convent. Princess Margrethe, sent into hiding at the convent for protection, is the one who finds him. When the sailor is discovered to be the enemy prince of the Southern Kingdom, the fragile peace between the two kingdoms is broken and Margrethe’s father prepares for war. Margrethe seeks peace, Lenia immortality, and both desire the love of the handsome prince who captured their hearts.
I don’t know if people buy fantasy or romance cover with photo models on them because they find it sexier or more mature than painted artwork which can be associated with fairy tale and therefore juvenile, but all I see is Bad Photoshop.
It’s actually really rare that I like covers with models on the cover because a lot of them just slap a photo, stock photo, title, and some effects that don’t blend.
In artwork and good photography, there is direction and design, but these covers have none, or the designer aren’t that skillfull.
It’s funny that covers that portrays photos of objects are usually better designed, photographed, and arranged than the ones with people.
Heart of Asvar Worldbuilding: Map of the World
Above we can see the map of the world, circa 1610.
The two oceans are the Lavaterran and the Antivalan; wirh the Lavaterran known for being considerably colder than the Antivalan. The Antivalan Ocean is said to be much more ruthless during tropical storms.
Asvar is located north of Aletis on the continent of Cedica, in the northeast. The climate here tends to be moderate; with the capital having all four seasons.
South of Cedica is the continent of Antivala. Sparse tribes live here, but most have assimilated into Asvarian cultures. Asvar wants to annex the entirety of Antivala.
Islands in the centers of the oceans serve as trading posts for both Asvar and Aletis, as well as an imaginary border between the New World and the Old World.
Ingrid is a tropical continent full of jungles in the north and deserts in the south. Asvarian colonies line the coasts, but Aletis maintains control of this continent for the most part.
An unnamed continent ans subcontinent in the northwest area of the world is simply known as “The New World”, for it is mainly unexplored by any civilization. A kingdom rests here that will not take kindly to the Asvarians or the Aletisans trying to annex them.

This is a weird post-
But, I am accepting art requests!
I really, really want some more practice material for my art before I actually dare to post the references for the characters from both LPWaL (@suits-chao) or for Angel Garden.
So, if anyone has anything they want drawing, my asks, submissions and DMs are open.
