This was just completely random. I was doodling last night while I was procrastinating on my visual novel and It began as a doodle of Soren Kazeren, my original character. So since this piece is actually kind of symbolic of his character, and actually representative of him, I thought Id take a moment to talk about him since I never do.
In my original story, Return: To the Valley, Soren is the main character despite my entire being talking about Light. I often over look Soren when I talk about my story, but I had most of my fun creating this story because of him. I find him to be a very real character despite being reclusive. That fact that he was born with a set fate that he can't escape no matter what he does and the fact that he makes mistakes along the way no matter how bad those mistakes were. This image in my mind represents the Soren that is developed at the beginning of my story, and the Soren that eventually comes out at the end.
I wanted to finish this piece as something concrete with lines and layers that made sense, but in the end I decided to go against it. Not only to experiment with things, but because it wouldn't of looked so loose with the hard lines around it. The blurb at the bottom are lyrics from the song Unravel, the opening song from Tokyo Ghoul except from the translated version sung by AmaLee. I thought the lyrics fit the picture... and Soren himself.
When I was doodling this, everything came together piece after piece. I originally wanted the water to look more like darkness he was slowly falling into, but than I kept dabbling around and it just became water. Like I don't even know man...
But anyways ~ I never draw Soren so this was something nice and different. Hopefully I can draw my characters more.
LOL IT'S BEEN FOREVER SINCE I'VE DONE ONE OF THESE! Well I had the legendary too, but yeah, you all know what that looks like... Well here you go... the dream team. From top to bottom: Rex the Tyrantrum (Rocky Helmet) Aaron the Lucario (Lucarionite) Charlie the Charizard (Charizardite Y) Zeke the Zangoose (Silk Scarf) Jaeger the Chesnaught (Amulet Coin)
Oh, and Jade the Trainer (Black Down Jacket-still worth the $120,000).
HHHNNNNNNGGGHHH ITS 1:30 IN THE MORNING. Worth it! *passes out in happiness
