This is probably the second most angstiest thing I have ever drawn. (Is 'angstiest' even a word? ^^; )

Anyway, it goes together with this little drabble I wrote today: [link]
Beware! It will make you cry. ;)

P.s. You can tell I didn't try very hard on the background. >_> But it's enough to set the mood, so...

So many thoughts bumping into each other in my head right now that I can't take each one apart and put them into words to make any sense...
It's amazing how you seemed to capture the painful emotions that were right for this moment and drew them so precisely into this scene. It makes me want to go up to poor Chance and hug him.
The two kats are like two minds, one heart (not in a 'love' sense) but in a friendship so strong that they've become like brothers. If one were to lose the other...*shudders*, he'd probably curl up in a corner and physically shut down over time.

"Come on buddy! Don't die on me! Just... "starts crying" don't die on me." This is a very sad pic.

I've always liked "dark times" scenes. Just as happiness is an unique experience in the natural course of life, so is disgrace. You managed to capture the purest essence of a sadness and the feeling of a sudden, unexpected and certainly unwanted solitude in this, allow me to say, masterpiece. Congratulations.

Swat Kats has remained as one of my favorite series since I was just a child. These guys taught me what a real brotherhood is about (which, ironically, is something I haven't found yet, in the real world).

As a curious fact, at the time I found this image, I was listening to the Falling Deeper's version of "Kingdom" by Anathema. I think it fits this scene perfectly, as the song gives that impression of T-Bone compelled to see his pal in that comatose condition while feeling unable to do something about it. Once again, congratulations! Your work really impressed me.

Aww, thank you so much for the kind words! :heart:

I've listened to the song you mentioned since I was curious and I really enjoyed it. I'm adding it to my playlist right now.

I hope you find that brotherhood you've always longed for one day. It's truly a thing to be cherished.

This makes my heart ache. Neither one of them can die alone! They must live and die together. ;__;

P.S. There are some amazing lighting effects in here!

Actually, what real fits is a song called "Living with Determination" From the three remakes Persona 3 games. It brings back memories.....from my great aunt dieing to my parents getting divorced..........(sniff)

The saddest song that would fit this is "Sora's Sacrifice" from Kingdom Hearts. Played during the saddest yet courageous part of the game, maybe the series. I'll send a like to the song and the scene.

I especially like the tears. They seem to sparkle with as though they are trying to say something. It's a beautiful picture. It feels so real it makes me wish I was there with him.

The perfect complimentary song to this pic might be Lorrie Morgan's Picture of Me Without You. Here's the lyrics and you can decide if it fits:

Imagine a world where no music was playing
And think of a church with nobody praying
Have you ever looked up at a sky with no blue?
Then you've seen a picture of me without you

Have you walked in a garden where nothing was growing
Or stood by a river where nothing was flowing
If you've seen a red rose unkissed by the dew
Then you've seen a picture of me without you

Can you picture heaven with no angels singing
Or a quiet Sunday morning with no church bells ringing
If you've watched as the heart of a child breaks in two
Then you've seen a picture of me without you

Can you picture heaven with no angels singing
Or a quiet Sunday morning with no church bells ringing
If you've watched as the heart of a child breaks in two
Then you've seen no picture of me without you
Then you've seen no picture of me without you
