Xemnas : Wing Shaped Heart by 8-13 Xemnas : Wing Shaped Heart by 8-13
:heart: "Leave my crowded chest, soar up into the air..." :heart:


:iconu-e: :bulletpurple: Notes from ~U-E =

So...Saeru drew this tiny tiny little scribble of Xem a long time ago...
...and...I don't feel like really captioning this right now. I just want to upload it finally.
We just think "it's awesome, the end."


:iconsaeru: :bulletpurple: Notes from ~saeru =
The original impression that I had when drawing this was that it'd be in black and white, with this massive field of red beneath where Xemnas had been fighting and yet remained untouched...

But I like this. Its interesting doing collaborations, because the drawing suddenly becomes a work of art that is not just one's own brainchild anymore...you get something you wouldn't have ever imagined but that is just as good.

The intent is also for Xemnas's eyes to be at the center of the perspective...I wanted him to invite you in...to sort of challenge you to see if you could succeed where the last man failed...

Look, ma, we did sorta real art!

:bulletgreen: Media = This is done on a huge piece of watercolor paper, with a million kinds of media (I'm including a photo because I find it rather funny that this is my idea of greyscale = [link] ) including also a cut-up pizza box used for the masking and a toothbrush used for the 80's splatter effect. Also, there is no Photoshop here at all (save for slicing together the dozen scans to form the full picture.)

:bulletred: Download for full size. Its big!

:bulletblue: Xemnas, Kingdom Hearts (c) Square

Oh man! :+favlove: This piece is so tasty and delicious. Someone even took a bite out of Kingdom Hearts. :P Heh, probably the same one who's beautiful crimson life now flows upon the ground that never was.

Aww...I think that another Valentine's Day poem may become of this just like "Heartless" with "Never was + Never will be" did. I really hope you won't mind that kind of honoring again.
This is definitely going on my list of potentual print kiriban gifts to pick from.

-insert spazzing here-

Holy fetch this is... Pardon my language, but this is fucking amazing!

The only thing is, is maybe if you had the buildings tilting uhm.. out/away a bit, it would probably add to the effect you aimed for (and got) more. But other than that... holy crap! If you sold this as a print, and I had the money...

Haha, me being the peaceful little coward I am, I'd probably run the other way. That or just.. stand... staring... frozen in place by his sexiness. xD

You're right...the buildings aren't as nice as they could be. We didn't really have a complete concept for them when we began, and so they just sort of...became. x-x We're working on backgrounds, but its gonna be a while.

...yeah. I'd probably just be frozen in awe...and...maybe ask to take a picture.
