Fantastic formal outfit (OP wore it for New Year), pairing this breathtaking black furisode depicting oshidori (mandarin ducks) and hato (doves) under yukimochi-ume (snow covered plum branches) + a matching oshidori obi tied in fukura suzume (”puffed sparrow”) knot.
Like doves in the West, oshidori ducks are a symbol of eternal love and fidelity. Because of this, I think this furisode is probably technically a kakeshita (bridal furisode worn under uchikake coat). But, bridal or not, it is far too amazing to be left in a drawer!
I finally drew Areel’s frillback pigeon, Macaroni! It was the winning choice in the poll, which was suggested by Metzger. I needed something fast and cute for today, and I figured out the pigeon was a good choice. Anyways, this bird’s sole life purpose is to be incredibly cuddly. It’s also a good anxiety relief! I’ll be honest, the best thing I’ve picked up from the quarantine is a newfound love for all things pigeon.
This is so fun and relaxing to do. Just a fun way to unwind and relax. I love birds and took several college courses on them. (Ornithology and Ornithological Printmaking). You can say I am a bird nerd. Anyway I hope you enjoy these cuties. I will make a post with the process vids soon.

NEW GHOUL OCS TIME!!! Pidegeon (They/Them) and Laufey (She/Her) are part of a group me and my friends on discord made that works for the Overboss of Nuka-World (my other character; Echo). Pidgeon is an assassin and Laufey handles the tech side of things.
