Reflection... by 6SeaCat9 Reflection... by 6SeaCat9
Okay, so this pic needs some explaining...

For those of you who have read my stories about Garin, you know that he wasn't a pirate until he turned fifteen, and before that he was living in a small island village alongside Jacques with his parents. Garin always felt out of place, reckless even, while living in that sleepy little village. He always knew he was meant for something more than just fishing and trading, so when he and Jacques turned fifteen, they ran away and became, not just pirates, but the most famous pirates in their time!

This picture describes how Garin felt when he was his younger self, and in the shadows, is his current self. The younger Garin feels doubtful about himself, knowing that he acts like a completely different person than he truly is in his heart, and the current Garin stands in the shadows, showing that he has been hiding for a very long time, but now he looks back on his younger self, and feels proud of what he is even though he is a pirate.

I used the song "Reflection" because it describes it. And for those of you who have read the lyrics and are confused, NO I did NOT change them! This is the Michael Crawford version of the song from his Disney album, its sort of a remix/guy version of the song. Its very pretty, and makes me want to cry, that's why I picked it.

Hope you all enjoy this pic!

Yeah, same here. It gets dark early around here and there's usually a lot of fog.

Wow, this is a really well drawn picture... :D

Almost everything about it is great, showing the reflection between Young Garin and Adult Garin! 1+

Thanks! I originally was gonna use a base for this, but after spending so much time STARING at the base it self, I was able to draw from memory! Though, I did use the base as reference a couple times...

Thanks! :D I enjoy it, because when I was little, I used to put music to pictures and stories and all that, even if it was from something different!
