Caught In Our Thoughts by AuroraLion Caught In Our Thoughts by AuroraLion
Inspired by: CMA - Caught In Our Thoughts

More Wolff art~ If there's any character I feel really bad for, it's Wolff. Like he deserves way more love for all he has been through. Just want to give him a hug ;A; I figured (besides his expression) having his Energy Liger in the background gives a good indication of the time period.

[SPOILERS AHEAD]
So I crammed in a lot here, but basically it comes down to Wolff kinda taking a quiet moment to reflect on all that has happened and thinking about what he should do in the future, how should rule, etc. This came to mind when I was thinking about how Prozen was worried about Wolff's naive nature in ruling. Cherry Blossoms represent the fragility and the beauty of life and is a reminder that life is almost overwhelmingly beautiful but that it is also tragically short, reflecting on the loss of his father and Anna. Pretty standard, but I love cherry blossom colors xD And I have some petals floating up into the stars, kinda like the souls of the past soaring up to the heaven on possibly farewell wishes on a star. I also threw in a Neo-Zenebas City, like a reminder of what he needs to defend and what he's fighting for as well as his new Energy Liger that symbolizes the new immense power he now posses, both military and becoming the Emperor. I did make him wear basic clothing as I always got the vibe that, despite his royalty, Wolff was very down to Earth Zi and easy going. Not really being one much for the fancy royal life.

Also yeah, gave Energy Liger a freakin neck and then added some armor under the chin per most ligers.


Wow a DD?! Thanks so much! ;A; I'm very grateful!

My first thought was Zoids, and I'm so glad I was right. There is not enough fan-made stuff for this show if you ask me. What a beautiful picture, and a very well deserved DD. Congrats!

Thank you! Even more so than the anime, this is from the Battle Story that was never officially translated as there's only fan translations. It's story that deserves more attention and be fleshed out more ^^

This captures post-Valhalla incident Wolff so well. Such a well executed, emotive piece of art. It makes me want the Zoids Battlestory to be treated like a real coherent story, fleshed out in some artistic media like a manga or anime instead of in jumbled model kit pamphlets. Thanks for reminding me of why I love this lesser known Zoids story!

Wow how'd I miss this comment? D: But yes, exactly! Even though it's just a bare bones story, I think there's more than enough potential for it to be fleshed out as an actual full story and would love to see it as an anime ;v;

You mentioned in another comment that there are only fan translations of this (I'm assuming this is the Battle Story or whatever it's called?)... Is there any archive or collection of these translations? I've always wanted to read them, but fell out of the fandom.

Oh my GODDDDDD the colors in this are absolutely AMAZING!!!  The vertical canvas is SO super effective here!! I love rolling down from the sky to the tree to those most perfect clouds and then city and then CHARACTERS. It's absolutely perfect!  And the highlighting on the characters is sooo super pretty.  I especially love all those metal highlights!!  Totally awesome job!! :heart:

Oh wow thanks! ;v; The city was surprisingly extremely easy to do and I definitely want to make more in the future. But those trees.. omg I swear I redid them a hundred times over because I was never satisfied with them xD

TREES ARE EXACTLY LIKE THAT.  I swear never will I ever be able to find the happy medium between clouds-on-sticks and drawing every leaf like a damn fool.  Or using that totally unrealistic obnoxious leaf brush.  Trees are absolutely the WORST hahaha.

Ugh yes! Trying to find that balance of making it look like a tree, but feel painterly was a pain. I found these brushes that worked really well though:
