"No! My heart belongs to me!"  - Roxas

This piece took so long to finish, just because Kingdom hearts is such a special game to me. My fave character has to be Roxas. I love that he doesn't fit the typical hero frame. He doesn't deserve the ending he got though, when his summer vacation ended :'(.
I hope he's a usable character in KH3! :D

Listening to "Roxas's Theme / The Other Promise" makes me cry, every single time. :'(

Aww, what a lovely artwork. And it brings back so many memories. I was really annoyed at first about having to play as Roxas in KH2's prologue but he grew on me so much that I tear up just thinking about the end of the prologue.
You used a really poignant moment to show their conflict and their similarities. I love how many details you included and how smooth and clean the shading looks.
Great work! It makes me wish I had finished playing 358/2.

Thank you so much!! I never finished playing 358/2 as well, I only watched cut scenes from youtube. Silly Pikachu plz

That's actually a really good idea. The gameplay was a big part of what kept me from picking up the game again, so watching it on YouTube I could finally see how that story ended without having to despair about that battle system. Thanks!

OMG you just gave me goosebumps with your comment.  La la la la I love that moment in the game;  it was very short but meaningful after playing 358/2.Love

Oh? I haven't played through 358/2. Did Roxas mean that Riku picked Sora over him?
pauldng's avatar
 I think Roxas was referring  to Axel. I'm not really sure though.. I recommend playing 358/2! it's has the best story out of all the KH franchise, IMO. :w00t:

Awesome art! I love the details. And I love KH, too.;_; Such an amazingly made game.<3 (I wish I could have finished but I'm planning to buy the HD version and play all the way through.)
