Assignment for classss ( The illustration has little to do with the real Hozuki Matsuri wuwuwu)
This is just a low-res version ( need to protect my work somehow) which is also why I left it at 600px wide.
I'm sorry that I haven't been so active lately. I hope this will make up for it! ｡ﾟ(ﾟ´Д｀ﾟ)ﾟ｡
The idea behind this piece is that these enchanted hozuki (Chinese lantern flowers) grant the wish to anyone who happens upon them. Though, telling apart which are enchanted and which aren't is nearly impossible.
