- - - vellichor - - -




i know it's been a while since i uploaded,
but i recently entered into ruietto's event,
and was tasked to make a skin based of the word "vellichor."

instead of trying to capture a certain aesthetic, i wanted to portray the feeling of vellichor.

the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows describes vellichor as being a "strange wistfulness,"
or longing, the realization that you are faced with something you will never understand.
this leads me to believe vellichor as a sort of somberness, bittersweet but inspiring.
it is the curiosity concerning what story the peculiar smell of archaic books or
the faded corners of worn-down photographs may reveal.

this sort of feeling reminds me of dust, libraries, and light academia,
which inspired me to use a palette containing beige and other desaturated shades.
though i've never really worked with such colors, i had fun with the palette.
(i'm especially satisfied her hair: i really like the new shading)

trying to explore the theme of books in the skin was tricky,
though i eventually decided to go with a simple outfit,
because i believe vellichor is a very subconscious feeling,
and as a result, she should reflect that modesty.

.

please tell me what you think of this skin!
all feedback is welcome, skin thieves are NOT.
thanks for understanding ♥
