Fiiiiiinissshed, OMG :D I worked my butt off on this picture :XD: It's actually six pictures in one, only the five little ones were shrunk to fit :) It's for the contest at :iconevo-obsessed-club: and it's based on the song "So Close" from Enchanted :) This pic - [link] by :iconsnowfright: (which is awesome btw :D ) made me want to listen to the Enchanted soundtrack :D So I did and I thought of Jean and Scott when I listened to "So Close". It's a future pic in Evo verse, of when Jean dies at the Phoenix and Scott is holding her :cries: So sad. I wanted to do the future Jean/Scott, but I didn't think he'd look Evo enough and Jean was going to be in her Phoenix costume anyway xP So Scott is holding Jean and having flashbacks of all the times they shared together. I wanted to use a sepia color for the flashback pics because that's usually the color (or black and white) you see when characters on tv are having flashbacks :) I'll give a cookie to whoever can name each of the episodes the flashbacks are from :D

Despite how terribly long this picture took me, I enjoyed every moment of it :) I actually drew a male character and a detailed background, w00t w00t! XD And I just learned today how to blend pictures to make a nice effect and that took a hella long time :o

You're in my arms
And all the world is gone
The music playing on
For only two
So close togehter

And when I'm with you
So close to feeling alive

A life goes by
Romantic dreams must die
So I bid mine goodbye
And never knew
So close was waiting
Waiting here with you
And now, forever, I know
All that I want is to hold you
So close

So close to reaching
That famous happy and
Almost believing
This one's not pretend
Now you're beside me
And look how far we've come
So far
We are
So close...

Oh, how could I face the faceless days
If I should lose you now?

We're so close to reaching
That famous hapyp end
Almost believing
This one's not pretend
Let's go on dreaming
Though we know we are
So close
So close, and still
So far...

(pssst, if you haven't heard it - [link] It's such a gorgeous, sad song)

In that moment Scott merely stared at the body of the woman he loved and the slowly very slowly he looked at Lilandra and even though he was wearing a visor everyone could see the hate blazing in his eyes.
" You, YOU DID THIS!!!"
Before anyone could stop him his hand flew up to his visor and turned the dial.
That day Scott Summers took his first life, and it was the life of a friend.

I remember watching the old cartoon xmen. This one: [link] And I loved it. I saw Evolution since then.

This reminds me so much of the X-Men animated series. D::: That was the first X-Men related thing I ever laid eyes on. I loved that show when I was a kid--the first episode I saw, was the full lengthed of the Phoenix Saga, since I stole it from my brother's stocking (the video) early in the morning (like... 3 A.M.?), and said it was mine, then watched it. XD I was like... I think three. :B Pffffff.

Great drawing. Very well done. D: NUUUUUUUUUSSSSSSSSSSSS. Jean. TT_________TT

Ooh, I love that song! It really fits the picture, there's a lot of emotion in it. The little images in the background really add depth to their relationship--at least it does to me, because I don't know much about it, so it's like little happy glimpses into it. Well done for finished such a big piece, hopefully we can see more of this style :)

*DIES*

WANT. IN. EVO. NOW.

:XD:

Sorry, Phoenix is my favorite villain and I was annoyed that we didn't get to see her manifest in Evo...oh well. I LOVE this picture, anyway. :heart: And that song...you've inspired me to go listen to it again. :P

(As for the flashbacks...that middle one is *definitely* "Blind Alley." And I'm pretty sure the first and last are from "Cruise Control", am I right?)
