EDM #26 -- Draw anything you like



New Year Berry



This is my challenge to EDM #26 Draw aything you like. Like a lot of things I start on, this one started out as something else. Then of course my "other" self grabbed the pencil and traveled off to Fantasy Land.

This is where the New Year Berry resides. As you can see *If you put on your imagination glasses*, there are clusters of berries which have a reddish color and darker base which actually softens as it ages into bloom. The strange flower like flute at the top emerges as a magnificent flower which is multifaceted. Local legend says that the forest animals such as deer and others eat the berries and are healed, their coats restored, and they appear youthful.

It only appears on New Year's Day and is in this present state until the first day of spring when it blooms for a month only to dissappear again until the following New Years Day.

Well, I thought it was cute lol

Note to self: Try more color balance
