[Art] Though the scent lingers, the flower scattered

Though the scent lingers, the flower scattered...

Oh withering life, be strong, be transient, like the merciless yet tender time

-Lyrics from iro wo nioedo, chirinuru wo ( touhou fantasy kaleidoscope opening 1)

I am confident that this is the digital drawing that took me the most time in my entire life, I never tried putting so much details to everything before, especially the background. I drew each character separately, precisely, and then put them together on the same background. This drawing was really a journey to me, drawing Reimu growing into an adult really gave me feels at the same time as I drew. I know it's maybe not the highest quality drawing out there, but looking back at what I did 2 months ago still makes me proud, and sad at the same time. i'd say I had the most fun drawing the cat eared young Reimu, as I love drawing cute stuff and semi-loli expressions, but every other Reimu had their own fun points. P.S: try to find the 21 Easter eggs and references to touhou or touhou fanworks I put in the drawing! There are also some other non-touhou references, some inside jokes with my friends, like the blurred drawing in the top right corner is my first piece of digital art.
Draw time: 20-25 hours

I think these few clues count as Easter Eggs:
  • Cirno
  • Myon’s tail
  • Youmu’s sword above
  • Marisa’s Hakkero
  • Mokou’s ribbon
  • Lunasa’s ZUNpet
  • Kogasa or Yukari’s umbrella
  • Sanae’s snake & frog
No idea about the other 13.

1. Mystia on the plate
2. Mini-hakkero
3. Marisa's hat
4. Nitori's backpack
5. Cirno keychain
6. Aya birb on the newspaper (Bunbunmaru?)
7. Grimoire of Alice
8. Rumia poster (Beware of youkai)
9. Cirn poster (I'm the strongest!)
10. Neko Miko Reimu
11. Seven-Colored-Puppeteer-colored pillow
12. Kogasa-umbrella
13. Yuyuko-butterflies
14. Sanae's frog hair clip on a snake
15. The pocket watch of blood is probably Sakuya's
16. The trumpet and keyboard could be the Prismrivers'; there's no violin though
17. Kisume's head?
18. Patchouli's crescent moon?
19. Youmu's sword? It doesn't look like hers

The few last ones are probably wrong.

13. Yuyuko-butterflies
There's also a butterfly pattern on Reimu's kimono (for some reason).

17. Kisume's head?
That's Hina.

19. Youmu's sword? It doesn't look like hers
It does, it even has a small plant attached.

18. Patchouli's crescent moon?
Doesn't look like hers. Doesn't look like Mima's, either. Do we have anyone else with a crescent?

The drawing behind the sword is probably a reference to HSiFS, since it depicts 4 seasons at the same time.
The mysterious oblect between the clock and the snake is likely a reference to something, but I'm having a hard time figuring what it even is.

And yes, it's a pretty picture. I like your style.

Oh wow thank you all the compliments, you guys almost got all the Easter eggs, I am very surprised that the more subtle ones like the Alice colored pillow were spotted. Oh and I draw with paint tool SAI.

One thing is that Hina lookalike was supposed to be Hatsune Miku but now actually it could definitely be her as well, i'll add that one to my references.

The sword is Youmu's, but i didn't really do research on it. And yea, i apologize for the mediocre quality background accessories, I sped through most of them.

The moon is actually a reference to the entirety of imperishable night, like the picture of trees for HSiFS and not a specific item, like the flame below the moon represents Mokou as a part of IN.

I'm pretty sure Reimu is also related to butterflies, but yeah the color scheme is that of Yuyuko.

Good job xD, only 2 easter eggs left to find!
