gsh I didn't see this coming at all- I feel unworthy o(--< Thanks for all the support, also many thanks to =GreyRadian for the suggestion and ^rydi1689 for featuring it!

Contest Entry for :iconethereal-artbook:
♦ Preferred name : Naoyatoudo
♦ Country : Indonesia
♦ Category : Blue

First discovered in Japan, the name hydrangea comes from the Greek “hydor,” meaning water, and “angos,” meaning jar or vessel. This roughly translates to “water barrel,” referring to the hydrangea’s need for plenty of water and its cup-shaped flower. With its wooden stems and lacy, star-shaped flowers packed closely together in a pompom, the hydrangea’s color ranges from white to blue to pink and purple, determined by the acidity level of the soil.
There remains some debate over the hydrangea’s symbolism – with some connecting it to vanity and boastfulness (perhaps reflecting its abundance of petals and lavish, rounded shape) and others suggesting that a bouquet of hydrangea expresses the giver’s gratefulness for the recipient’s understanding. Still others suggest it represents anything that’s sincerely heartfelt. Despite this variation in flower meaning, there appears to be an overwhelming consensus that this 4th wedding anniversary flower possesses enduring grace and beauty.

Idk I just- happy because I finish this before deadline,...ans kinda sad idk WHY GFHFGHSFHSSH Maybe it's not as my expectation,...but I'm..pretty satisfied... yeah o(--< AND I'M HAPPY I CAN DRAW AN UMBRELLA EVEN THO IT'S NOT PERFECT :iconwakahisacryplz: At first I want to make it like a normal girl in the middle of hydrangea garden... turns out I'm stupid at painting person, and since the BG won't blend with the person, I was like ' HAHA screw that if I can't make it blend I might as well make it like stickers ' . And this happened.

About this artwork,...let's be honest here , I didn't have much to say , I just want to draw something that could make people happy, I guess? //stares at the teru teru bouzou// that thing ... isn't it cute if you hang it at the umbrella like that :iconheblushplz:

Character is original.
Let's just hope for the best.. I don't want to expect much lol//qwoops away to another deadline

From the suggester:
"This piece is very unique yet simplistic as well; I think the concept of imitating a scrapbook is rather playful. The selection of colour also compliments well with the piece, and not to forget the stunning detail the artist has put in the flowers bordering the girl, contrasting with the minimalistic style."
