I'm so sorry for being late! I initially had them upside-down Amnesia-style but it was kind of hard to see their faces... >>;; This was another idea lost in translation somewhere between my brain and the finished product. orz
Happy super-late Valentine's Day (closer to White Day? lol), and I hope you like it anyway~!
I started drawing this a while ago but never really finished until now. ><; Winter illuminations are everywhere in Japan. I saw some really pretty ones around Christmastime that I wanted to share (in spirit ).
So yeah, hopefully I'll use this somewhere in the game itself. ;D (I miss working on it! ;_; )
Cover/back cover image for my artbook. Front: girl, back: boy.
Concept: Embrace the limitless freedom, the boundless skies. I always admired the sky when I was little. It gave me hope, even in the darkest times, because I could spread my arms and feel the wind kiss my cheeks. The title is a tribute to the sense of freedom that the sky had always given me, and in hopes that others might feel the same, just by looking up into the clouds.
Edit: Uploaded newer version with warmer tones... :> --
It's time for old art spam in the hopes that I'll return to this style because I do not like my current one.
This was drawn a long time ago for an artbook that supposed was going to be released in 2010 or something... but it didn't happen, so I'm assuming it'd be okay to post this now. It's been collecting a bit of dust.
INFO | Our charity art book donates 100% of the proceeds to the non-profit organization American Cancer Society. Also, depending how the project works out, some of the profits may also be used to create/publish a coloring book for impoverished kids in New Jersey. The book itself will be about 8.5"x11" sized and have more than 100 artists participating.

I think I allowed myself to experiment more with this one. It started out with just a girl under a waterfall. That girl is still there, but she is now smaller and is nothing more than a piece of background. |D
(edit: Sorry for the reupload. I submitted in a rush, and realized later that it didn't get the parts I liked -- i.e. the background. xD; )
Trapped in a cage created by your own mind... Erase your bounds and fly free... If you lack wings, then make them with your two hands... Set yourself free...
Eraser, literally. xD; I keep seeing drawings of people drawing their worlds, so I took the opposite route and drew someone erasing it. Or at least, the cage irons.
I remembered what inspired me when I was younger. The sky. How possibilities are limitless. That the only one fettering me is myself. And that all I need is the will and the effort. I think I had forgotten these things as I became immersed in the working world, even though it has only been a few months. Each week feels like a string of weeks that all feel the same. That is frightening. So, this is a reminder to myself that, yes, there are great things to be achieved and that I should take the helm in my life.
