Death of Aeris by justincurrie Death of Aeris by justincurrie
This song popped onto my ipod the other day- and I was floored by old memories.
[link]

for those of you whom do not know- this is tribute to one of the most famous and heartbreaking scenes in video game history- as a character you’ve been building up and developing for dozens of hours gets actually killed off for the remainder of the story.

as i've said before: I credit the FF7 game for really getting me into artwork back in the day, owe the game a lot.

Man, that scene really stabbed me hard in the feels. I was literally like a nervous wreck for like a week after first seeing it.

Minimalism adds so much to the emotion. I love the composition and the colours and the text and the style.
So like, all of it.

Very nice, but I wish there was a wallpaper downloadable size, like the "I will... never be a memory" piece. :)

I really enjoyed this picture. A lot of people have captured this scene but I think this is my favorite. There's a good use of white space and the quote only amplifies the emotions.

Well done!
