Samuel and Grelna's room / Prop design - Hole of Losses

Early development for Samuel and Grelna's room and prop design. Grelna is Samuel's mom, a nice lady from a mysterious raze. She disappeared out of the blue without a trace, thus, Samuel has to go outside and desperately look for her.

Some simple sprites before reaching the final stage of this character. Curious fact: because Samuel is so small in comparison to other kids with the same age, his mom tends to buy dolls’s clothes and rearrange them for Samuel to wear.


Samuel character development - Hole of Losses

Samuel is a small size 10 years old boy who is visibly troubled with the fact that other 10 yo kids are bigger than him. He knows he's different, but can't find the truth behind himself. Since his foster mom Grelna disappeared misteriously, Samuel has to embark himself into the outside world in order to find her, a place that is not made for his size.
Along the way, he's going to find a lot of answers about his size, and even more stuff he probably shouldn't know.


Arccus flower design

Arccus is the tenth flower from the Obbirek group. Undoubtedly, the rarest one. Arccus is an exotic flower, which number of specimens is only reduced to one. There are no more Arccus in the world than the one in display.

Known by names like the ‘Rainbow Flower’ and the 'Lollipop Flower’ among others, this particular specie doesn’t show any symbol of weakness going through several kinds of weather. It obviously needs water, and the scientifics and botanicals never tried to test the flower’s limits, since there are no more of the same type. The illustration couldn’t show other features so common on other Obbirek Flowers, like its roots, seed, axis or even bud, because of the lack of information and mystery surrounding Arccus.

The aroma changes everyday, and the intensity depends on the weather, adding more enigma to this flower.

Nobody wants to open the axis or the stem, much less remove the earth around it, in order to study the roots and find a clue about what kind of seed belongs to it. The real flower is located in the main hall of the famous museum Oxemmia Rek, a floral museum that treats with thousands of different flower specimens. It receives daily care, such a special fertilizer, soil and pure water and light. Is surrounded by different flowers that have one thing in common: those are neutral weather flowers.

There is a legend from the old period of the planet, telling that Arccus flowers were all over the place and were extremely useful for an extinct native race called Eriamat, since these tiny creatures could use the aroma of Arccus in order to detect an inminent change that was about to come. Scholars believe that the flower is sentient and the way it has to communicate is through its aroma. 


Ettritz flower design

Ettritz is the sixth flower inside the Obbirek group. Known as the 'Daylight Star' because of their behaviour, Ettritzes (plural for two or more) tend to open their petals when light is present, and close themselves at night.

People say there's nothing sweetest than this flower's aroma, a fragant mix of vanilla and soft candies. Ettritzes can grow naturally in caves or shady places, which is seen as an irony, since the flower needs daily light, and can't spend a whole day closed or it will die, eventually.

Some farmers succesfully tried to grow Ettritz on special gardens close to cities and open spaces. Even if the flower survived for more time, a strange mutation occurred because of the constant light pollution the Ettritzes received, turning the petals into a purplish color and changing the aroma. The pistils attract a lot of different insects, from those loved by people, like butterflies, lukop channies, vanntias and ladybugs, but also repellent ones like foloffi, flies and big wasps.

If the flower lose one of its petals naturally, it can grow another one in a matter of hours. But if the petal is ripped off, the Ettritz can die at night, since it can't cover itself properly againts predators.


Gubbi flower design

Gubbi flower is the nineth one from the Obbirek group. This flower is a simple one, yet impressive. Is often used as an example for life lessons.

Even with it’s light appearance, Gubbies are heavy flowers because of their stem and their axis, located in the middle of the flower, and hidden between a dense layer of spores. When a normal breeze or a strong wind blows, Gubbies tend to lose most of it’s camouflage, revealing the pinkish axis.

Great winds tends to move this flower’s leaves (always two), so it looks like it wants to fly away, despite its weight. This action is often represented by people as an important lesson: Gubbi flower can’t fly with the wind because of its heavy axis, but, by the frantic movement of its leaves, it seems it never stops trying.

The spores are a nuisance on Spring for people with allergies, but, ironically, those are the base for a medicine against it. 


Pruenan flower design

Pruenan flower, eighth one from the Obbirek group, is one of the most treasured flowers of all, because of their many qualities.

From aroma, to their fruits, Pruenans can easily place themselves on the top places of the list. Being an exclusive Winter flower, Pruenans can only be found on the East and West parts of the world, where low temperatures predominate. Although hardening the cold weather, these flowers are extremely delicate, so people started growing them in special greenhouses, protected from strong winds and snow.

Pruenan's petals are so soft, that just a simple physical contact will attach them to any exterior agent, thus unprotecting the two Cerenuelo fruits on the center. Those fruits are what makes this flower being so sought. If Cerenuelo fruits are cut into chunks and their jelly center is cleaned of the heart and the seeds, a magnific hot tea called 'Cerenuelo Tea' can be created.

This tea is not just something delicious, is also good for people and other species who suffer or did suffer from the cold weather outside. It helps them to regain energy and heat. Pruenan is one of the two flowers on the group whose root needs from the seed during its useful life.
