As always, you know how to bring the emotional punch in your work. The linework is a bit rougher than I usual see, but along with the nice use of light shades conveys the spiritual nature of the scene. That although Pyrrha is not here in the flesh, her memory and spirit are still guiding Jaune forward.

I particularly like the nice touch of the tears coming from his eyes, for although we didn't see that in the episode, the emotion was there and your take on it has more dramatic impact than what the show conveyed.

Good touch using the sort of "phasing" of Pyrrha's spirit from a more solid to ethereal form, nicely drives home the point that while she's not physically there, Jaune is still holding on to her somehow.

Nice work once again!

I think the most powerful thing about this piece is the emotion it carries, which is not to say that anything else is lacking, by no means, I personally just felt a wave of bittersweet contentment when I first saw this. I love how you did the tears, but still managed to make Jaune look like a strong character, which from what I have seen in other works is not very easy to do. You also got the new armor and sash down really well. If there is one critique I have it is the sword. it looks exactly like his old one even though he got it with a fancier pommel, hilt, guard (whatever it is actually called, I don't really know the parts of a sword too well beyond handle and blade) but this is more of a nitpick on my part. Overall though, this is extremely well done, and I cannot applaud you enough for your talent!

Jaune Pyrrha will always be with you

Pyrrah always kept her promises even unto Death. And Death granted her one Boon, One promise to always keep till the one given that promise joined her in Death. She chose her promise to Jaune Arc to "Always be by your side"

A lovely picture, but nude Pyrrha was unneccesary. Her Armor burned with her.

This is such a beautiful image of Juan. It perfectly describes him and the way he misses Pyrrha. :'(

I kind of like how Pyrrha's naked here. Not for obvious, pervy reasons or anything, it just seems like cool symbolism, for the same reason I like that souls are shown like that in Soul Eater. It just seems like it makes sense that someone's SOUL wouldn't be wearing clothing, a "this is who you truly are, laid bare" kind of thing.

I get the feeling that something like this might happen in volume 4 of RWBY or volume 5, if they make one.
