The End Will Be Iridescent by SavannaEGoth The End Will Be Iridescent by SavannaEGoth
PLEASE DO NOT SIMPLY DOWNLOAD/COPY AND PASTE MY WORK AND EDITS AND THEN COLOR OVER THEM.  I WORKED FOR DAYS GETTING THESE PANELS CLEANED UP, AND THEN I HAD TO REDRAW OR ADD IN ALMOST EVERYTHING WHILE CLEANING UP NASTY PIXEL BLENDING AND FIXING HIDDEN COLOR PATTERNS.  I WOULD NOT APPRECIATE YOU USING THESE AS BASES.  USE THE ORIGINALS, THANK YOU.

When you were standing in the wake of devastation
When you were waiting on the edge of the unknown
And with the cataclysm raining down
Insides crying, "Save me now!"
You were there, impossibly alone

Do you feel cold and lost in desperation?
You build up hope, but failure’s all you’ve known
Remember all the sadness and frustration
And let it go, let it go

This is something I've been working on few about a week now.  I know it isn't much, but the panels I used to make this came straight off of Cascade . . . so there were a lot of hidden colors and some pixelation in some places, but I managed to nicely edit the original panels to make this lovely little strip.  You guys have no idea how proud I am of this!  I love the way it looks and wow . . . I know I'm not very good at perspective, but I really think I did okay in the first two panels.  I really, really do.  And the fun I had with the hair, oh my God . . . you wouldn't believe how much this piece pleases me, wow.

THIS IS NOT HOW THEY DIE!  Read below for story.
The song I chose originally for this was "Iridescent" by Linkin Park.  I somehow hadn't heard it until I watched the third Transformers movie and the song stuck with me.  I knew I wanted to do something with it, but I couldn't quite think of what, until I started thinking of just how Savv and Savana would meet.  I mean, they're alternate versions of one another--one human, one troll.  And in the moment they met, great devastation befell the planet.  The planet in question?  It's neither Earth nor Alternia.  It isn't even Skaia.  Nope, this was Savv's planet.  The game couldn't handle these two existing in the same space, and started to fall apart just as it had when it began.  Savana refused to leave her human counterpart as they were linked by ectobiology, and instead stayed with her while they went to save what life they could on the planet, moving it to the one that Savv's team created.  Her own team, meanwhile, were busy trying to keep a stable portal open between the two worlds so that they could get everything through in time.

A song that I hadn't even considered for this piece until this morning while I was finishing drawing the last panel (the only one I did completely freehand without bases!) was "Run" by Snow Patrol.  It's more of a love song, but I feel that in a platonic sense it fits these two and their relationship very well indeed.  Especially the very last stanza of the song.

Slower, slower
We don't have time for that
All I want's to find an easy way
To get out of our little heads

Have heart, my dear
We're bound to be afraid
Even if it's just for a few days
Making up for all this mess

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I'll be right beside you dear

Uh . . . . .. . . . .  well . . . . . . . .  I mean, I guess it's okay . . . but, you know, try and change the hair and and the colors of the background, please . . . . and credit me in the description.  I mean, I was going to say in there that I really don't mind if anyone references, but if they just, you know, copy and paste it into Paint or something and then draw over it or just recolor it and then, like, change the horns and symbols, then I'd get really pissed.  I don't know, dude . . . I just feel like I had to do a ton of work to draw and get rid of pixelation and add to the hair and clean up everything where there were hidden colors and everything . . . I hope I'm not sounding like a jerk . . .
