KH - When hope was lost

Many times I lost my hope
Forgot the reason why I started searching
I couldn't remember all my dreams
Couldn't see the beauty surrounding me...

Take another deep breath
Don't look down, keep your eyes closed
Let your dream completely take over
I know that I would never fall
I haven't come this far to quit right now
To give up here and now

(Allen/Lande - Reach a little Longer)


*cough cough*
yeah, just needed to say that!

This is for the sweet and kind:

This lovely lady wanted to have a Cloud x Leon picture, and so that's exactly what I've made for her!
Hope you like it dear! (;


Both characters were based upon existing pictures. But I did something totally different than usual!

Cloud: '....................'

You never have been much of a talker, now were you?
Anyway, I combined several poses of Cloud and put them together. Then I drew the same pose, but changed the shading etc until it looked like my own style!

As for Squall...

Leon: 'It's Leon! And what about me?'

Shush! I'm explaining the people how I created you.

Leon: :evileye:

Don't look at me like that!

Leon: 'You're weird. You talk to nonexisting people.'

*shoves Leon away*

Anyway, for Squall... or Leon... I used a reference of him from the Kingdom Hearts game. Since he never got a 'real' look in that game, I had to make it up! So the shading on the belt, the way the hair looks, the pose (I even changed that one, can you tell? ^^;)... everything had to be recreated.

I made this on my own. Yay! :dance:

.....c'mon Cloud, say something

Cloud: '.........'
Leon: Like seriously, I can make him talk anytime I want!'


Leon: 'Yes'
Cloud: '.........' :depressed:
Leon: 'Cloud!'
Cloud: '..........'
Leon: 'Guess what I have here? Tifa's panties!'
Cloud: '.......really?'
Leon: 'Yeah! And guess how I got them!' ;D
Cloud: :rage:
Leon: 'Whoa, just relax! I'm only kidding! See? I can make him talk and make him mad at the same time!'
Cloud: 'You idiot'
Leon: 'Love you too Cloud'
Cloud: :blushes:

Yeah anyway, hope you like the drawing :) take care people!

    I've seen these two a lot in Kingdom Hearts, but I would like to see more team-ups like their team up in KH2.

    Amazing work and I love the fact it was all traditional media. Their scene together in KHII was short, but epic.

    You get some good views of Squall Leonhart (I'm used to this name more) in Final Fantasy VIII. They actually get to work together in KH II.
