I am who I am because of them by tigrin I am who I am because of them by tigrin
Your mind's made up?
Yeah. it's just, they really need me. I have to go. I am who I am because of them.


-- I started this around June after I watched the E3 trailer, because I was very excited for Kingdom Hearts 3. I've played all the Kingdom Hearts games, and when I heard the above quote in the trailer, I was pretty sure it referred to some stuff in Dream Drop Distance... or at least, I hope it does! Anyway, it's taken me months of weekends to finish this. =_=

Sorry for the watermark on the bottom, been dealing with art theft recently so I might be a little more active about watermarking things than normal.

If I'm not mistaken, Sora says the quote at the end of DDD, well, I guess he says something like that ^^;; Amazing fanart! I love the concept and coloring in this and the glass effect is pretty cool!

Does he? It was quite a while ago that I finished that game so I can't remember. It seems related to the end of that game though.

Anyway, thanks! :)

I like the broken glass thing :D

But if you're dealing with art theft, I recommend putting your watermarks in a place where it wouldn't be practical for an art thief to crop it out. You should probably put it over the artwork, because if it's just in a corner, especially in a corner that's blank (like here), someone could just erase it or cut it out completely.

Just some friendly advice :D I hear about art theft a lot and a lot of artists on the receiving end of that usually put the watermark right smack-dab over the image. Or they tactfully blend it into the image somehow.

Thanks for the advice, but in this case, I was dealing with someone flat out reposting my art unaltered... so any watermark is better than none. :) I'd really rather not have a watermark that in any way distracts from the art. It's actually pretty rare that I have problems with theft.

Deep... Love your KH works, Tig. :D They're always so profound.
I still have yet to watch Riku's half of D3. Is it very different?

Thanks!

D3 is really complicated and I can't begin to describe it at all. :( I'm not sure it's accurate to say "Riku's half" because it's technically all one storyline that you go back and forth between. If you haven't experienced any of the Riku parts I can't imagine how much more confusing it is?? @_@

You're welcome! :aww:

I was kindof confused in some places, but I basically get that they are in two different dimensions of the "dream world" and there's some weird crap happening with past things and SPOILERS and it just seems to be getting more complicated than it should be. D: I hope Kingdom Hearts 3 turns out really well, otherwise I will be sad.

D3 combines time travel with Inception-style dream diving, which is like a recipe for ultimate confusion.

My biggest worry with KH3 is that it relies so heavily on the handheld spin-offs that most people haven't played all of, or any of. It's not really a numbered entry since it doesn't go directly off KH2. Considering I've played all the games and even I can't explain them, I don't have a clue how they're going to catch up people who haven't touched a KH game since KH2.

Yep. :confused:

I'm pretty sure that, looking at what showed up in D3, they will most definitely include at least some of all that backstory plot. You can be sure to expect a lot of flashback fillers, similar to Roxas's part in KH2. I'm afraid of the plot becoming too complicated, if that even makes sense.

No it makes total sense. I kind of feel like with every game, they've tried to step up how complicated everything is, and it's getting way too convoluted. A lot of people I've talked to who didn't make it far past KH2 were really turned off by it. BUT I AM UNDETERRED. 8)

I definitely feel that way. Especially with Final Fantasy, yikes. o.o' I haven't even played three games (finished X and X-2, got most of the way through XII) and I think they reaaalllly overdid it.

XD The only thing deterring me is I cannot afford a PS3 right now!

The only Final Fantasy games I've managed to finish are 10 and 13. I started 7, 12, and 13-2 and didn't manage to finish those... particularly 13-2, I was so irritated by the weird time travel aspect of it, I kind of gave up. D: I've been meaning to pick it up again because I actually paid a lot of money for it, but considering I work in video games, I seem to have very little time for games.

I never felt the need to get a PS3 until recently! I kind of want that HD remake of Kingdom Hearts. I've actually been using a PS3 at work in order to play Last of Us.
