ICO - The pale princess by FixelCat ICO - The pale princess by FixelCat
Late night inspiration and venting! Since I have the day off tomorrow I figured I'd get some artworking on despite it being 2AM at the time and this taking me 2 hours to make. Practicing my realistic style a bit.

I can't help it.. the soundtrack of the game makes me wanna draw Yorda.
Just so happened to run into these lovely songs played by Dave Peppiatt on YouTube.

Tweaked the speedpaint up on the Snapseed app on my phone once it was done before uploading it. (Textures, saturation, brightness and so on)

Nono.. Mori...

Hi there! I linked your beautiful painting of Yorda in my article about unused text & deleted scenes in ICO. I gave you full credit and linked both your username and the image back to this page. I hope this is OK!

Thank you! That's very kind of you to say :heart:
I'm happy if only they get seen more, my Ico and Yorda :aww:

The article you wrote was very interesting to read! There's so much unused content in the western release, yet it still works so well!
I read through the novel aswell and it really broadened my perspective on their world. It's so magical, even though we get to visit it briefly through the game. It'll always be that special little adventure that I'll always hold dear!

I can't get enough of it! As soon as I found out there was a book written officially based on the game I bought and read through it too!
If you haven't, I strongly recommend it! ^__^

Sucks that The Last Guardian is dead in the water. I really enjoyed both of these games and it was a breath of fresh air in the industry.

I hear ya! While they've shooed away this years rumors of Last Guardian being cancelled.. Even if it's being repurposed for the PS4, it'll still take time to convert what work and models they had done for the PS3.

I hope to see more of it again soon though!

Oh, that's awesome I didn't know it WASN"T dead AND it'll have next-gen processing power? Sweet.

I'd pay for a director's cut Shadow of the Colossus though.

I'm just assuming it'll be next gen since we haven't seen anything new about it on ps3. Would be another strong selling point for the ps4 if they end up releasing the game for it. I mean, I would buy one for it~ ^^

Unusual for me I guess ^^ I do find it rather easy to draw this style so maybe I should stop struggling against it and just do more ^^

She is one of the two main protagonists from the game ICO for the PS2. (Later rereleased as a HD remaster on the PS3)

It's one of my favorite games of all time. It's storytelling and gameplay is rather unique both as a good thing and bad in some cases. I've known many who've stopped playing after a certain point.

It won game of the year when it came out~
