CECILIA HELMOLD aka CECI
My earliest drawing on the site, from 2013, of Cecilia Helmold; Ceci for short. She’s one of my favourite videogame characters, from the PlayStation Vita game Atelier Totori Plus: The Adventurrer of Arland; she’s super adorable …. not as much as her little Sister Totori, but she comes pretty close.
This drawing was so much fun to do, I had wanted to draw her for a few weeks, after finishing the game on Vita. I finally decided to draw her, and waheyyy, I like how she turned out :) Her outfit was fun to do, I normally don’t like drawing clothes, but this one was more fun then normal.
In the following video I show the drawing in a bit more detail, while talking about some of the things I learnt at the time, and the years since drawing her :)

“As an aquatic animal, the otter is a symbol of life. Why? Because the prime symbolic meaning of water deals with the divine feminine, which is a major life-giving energy. Water (and otters) are symbolic of creativity, fluidity and transitions.”
