X - Subaru - Sweet Dreams...

A portrait of the longing and loneliness of Sumeragi Subaru from the series X and Tokyo Babylon.
But is that shadowy figure lurking near just a figment of his imagination,
or is it -- ?

The sakura took a toll on my wrist, erp. I tried making my own petals-brush on photoshop, but it turned out a little weird and more fakey than I had hoped, so I then drew a bunch in the hopes they balance out in the end (two wrongs...?). Also, my least favorite part of the pic were his feet. ^^; And, carving things into trees is bad...

6 hours, Photoshop CS. Wacom Tablet.

I wish I worked this hard on my homework. :X

I really like the atmosphere of this picture! I feel so sad looking at this... :cry: I wish there would've been a happier ending for them, but maybe, I wouldn't love them as much, if their relationship was any different?

Still, lovely work. I wish I could portrait Subaru OR Seishirou so well.. (I suck at fanart, sadly..)

This is so perfect. I love Subaru's outfit and the way he's laying down on the sakura blossoms. The shadowy figure was well placed as well!

It's really hard to draw someone from this perspective, yet Subaru looks really normal and everything is in balance!

Gorgeous! The scene is just beautiful. :aww: Subaru's so cute & I like the pose. Your colouring is so lovely too, awesome shading work! The style & overall look looks really good. Those sakura petels must have been murder to draw, they're so tiny (evil buggers! =p )

*smile* Simply inspiring.
It also reminds me of what Seishiro said to him all those years ago about the sakura tree and his own promise for Subaru...that he was the only one allowed to kill him. Though...still...he is ever watchful, even when opportunity arises and falls. He watches and longs for something in their connection...deep within himself...
