Our three artists worked together today on an art piece that celebrates the lunar new year! Sanne created the background and the dragon, Bere made the ox, and lastly, Sigrid painted the character. We’ve been inspired greatly by Asian culture for one of our worlds, and we’d love to share our appreciation this way. Stay safe everyone!
A fragment of Aether Void lore:
Did you know that the calendar on Sleeping Dragon was based on Chinese numerology? In this particular system, some numbers, such as 6, 8, and 9 are regarded as signifying good fortune, while the numbers 4 and 7 are seen as bad omens. To make the calendar suitable for their world, the numerologists avoided 4 and 7 altogether and used the numbers 6, 8, and 9 wherever they could. Resulting in a year consisting out of 198 days with exactly 11 lunar months of each 18 days. Each lunar month was divided into 3 weeks of 6 days. Their days must be filled with luck, don’t you think?
