HAPPY KINGDOM HEARTS DAY! I can’t believe we’ve been waiting for this for 15 years…
I really had so much fun painting this piece- not the least of, because it inspired me to listen to A LOT of old J-pop tunes and crawl through a backlog of Kingdom Hearts fanfiction I saved when I was 14. And damn, it was so great. Embarrassing, but great.
The pose I chose for this picture was fairly deliberate; in most art of him, Riku is always looking down, scowling or in defensive poses, so I thought it would be good to represent that by making him look up and smile, as I figure this might be the game where Riku finally finds his peace.
This piece was made thanks to my lovely Patreon supporters!
