;wIHEGLWHIAELRIHGAERILH S---so it looks like I won this precious babbu omg I almost had a heart attack yesterday when I saw it t-thank you so much once again Mord! T-this is my entry for *Mordekaih's Draw to Adopt
Fell in love with this little guy's design and---even when I have 0 confidence when it comes to this sort of thing (it was no different with Jeremiah //papcreys), I can't remember the last time I had so much fun drawing something so no matter what, I'll be a happy Pumpkin because I got to draw something that made me happy when I needed it the most ( / >//v//< )❤
So on to my corny story for this boy (since it was in the rules that we could do this I gave it a shot but I can remove it if needed / if it was for an after / if you win the character, sort of thing. I don't want to give the wrong impression here ;A; )//pumpkinishopelesslytryingtodrawshotasbearwithmyfailpleaselolsob// ✪ Name:Prince Caeleste (insert ridiculously long last name here) the XXIII Prince Caeleste Marius Benedict the XXIII (Cael works just fine) ✪ Age: ??? (possibly in his teens for sky people, might just be jailbait for humans) ✪ Personality: Devious, Indifferent, Aloof, Compulsive Liar, Corageous, Patient, Ambitious, Grateful. ✪ History:
[O]nce upon a time...
...There was a kingdom in the sky, surrounded by mystery and said to be full of treasures and wonders beyond your wildest dreams, a place every well respected adventurer will have on their list of things to seek-------and this is the story of one of it's inhabitants. Meet Cael, better known as the 23rd Prince of the Sky Kingdom of Caelum; as big and fancy as this may sound, dearest Prince Cael, may not agree so much; as this little boy's life, was doomed from the start. Being born a prince, he got the love from the people, the fortune, the laid back and fancy life and also the one job that everyone revers but nobody wants---becoming the next guardian of the Sky Temple. An easy job, so to speak, as all the boy has to do is guard the most prized possession of the Sky Kingdom which is seen as a sacred item by Sky people, the Celestial Egg, said to grant great fortune to those who get to touch it.
Of course---Cael doesn't quite see it as a sacred holy item, but more as a comfortable seat, regardless of the fact that he was told not to touch it. Once he reached a certain age, after training for some years, Cael was sent off to begin his duties as the temple's guardian; a wondrous job full of nothing but a floating temple, the silence of an empty room and an egg he shouldn't sit on. This is where his life as a guardian began and his life in luxury as a prince ended, as the duty of a guardian includes free celestial fruit from trees in the temple, a 'palace' fit for him, but no way to 'clock out'; his job doesn't end, he's to remain at the temple protecting the egg and waiting, for the day an adventurer he'll deem worthy of receiving the egg's blessing to arrive. Not having much where to go, Cael's faithfully stuck to his job, though he's gone about it in his own little mischievous and somewhat twisted way. Adventurers have come and gone, but not a single one has been able to touch the egg as no one has been able to pass the Guardian's test. He won't fight, he won't expect treasures or great knowledge, he has but a wish, one small wish "Show me something that I haven't seen". Hearing this some are baffled, others try showing him whatever they have on them, some have gone as far as to leave and return a long time later with an item from a distant land, yet no one seems to find something that the boy hasn't seen, and return home without the precious blessing of the egg.
Shortly before the birthday that sealed his fate, his uncle, a well known magician of the Sky Kingdom, crafted him an item, the Moon Mirror, and gave it to him as a present. The mirror is supposed to help him see any place he wants, the only window he'd ever have to the world below which he'd never know. Telling adventurers of his mirror, some are discouraged while others strive to find nothing but the rarest items known to land, and yet they fail, time and again, to bring the right thing; and so Cael continues to wait, for the one who can actually grant his little wish...
Little do they know...
How the mirror works-----
.....was the one thing he forgot to ask.
✪ Additional Info:
♚ His social skills are very much lacking. ♚ He would like to see how the world below is. ♚ He has no respect for the egg and also sleeps on it. ♚ The thought of eating the egg has crossed his mind before. ♚ He can sit for hours staring at the mirror, waiting for something to happen. ♚ He tried cracking the egg open once---and learned the meaning of 'backfire' ♚ He was trained as a magician from childhood for his 'job' (he's not exactly an expert) ♚ Whether he's been blessed by the egg or not is unknown to him, as he doesn't know how it works or if it would have any effect on him. ♚ Since he's been stuck in the temple for years, he thinks the egg is broken, 'as stupid as this temple' and that it doesn't know what a blessing is. Original Design:

Original design @ *Mordekaih Character, Art and story @ Me, *Sakura-Pumpkin ------- The sketch was done in maybe 10 minutes on a very tiny canvas (300x400 originally then 300x600 to try and add a background *sob* ) Oh! And for the background I followed this tutorial which is awesome and was really helpful~! I ended up mixing things up for the sky with other tools, this is the second time I try making a sky like this so the tutorial helped a lot ;v;b The weird story I came up with while I was sketching him (lol the places your mind goes to when you draw Pumpkin), the sleeves were made longer than they originally for the purpose of um---eggy holding? *minghide* (basically just for composition purposes) and um---w-well I can only say it was more than a pleasure to work with this, it was so much fun and it made me so happy I'm still smiling like an idiot while typing this helped me so much more than I can express. Best of luck to everyone participating! Mord's babies are just---
Title comes from the song that inspired me to draw this "A Very Small Wish" //neverfinishedapicturelikethissofastomfgandalltheanatomyfailomgiwilljustnopenopenopesobsatitnowthatshenoticesallthat'swrong
