KH2 - Ansem Scholarship Fund by 8-13 KH2 - Ansem Scholarship Fund by 8-13


Whoa, been a while since we submitted, eh? Been a while since I finished this picture too. Like, back in October.
This is sort of a celebratory 'we're alive' posting( since we should be dead or something), but there will be more to come on that, later.

Here we have the six recipients of the Ansem Apprenticeship Internship Scholarship...thing. I put them in order for ease of identification.

I sort of wanted to draw the six original Nobodies YOUNG. Because I think that a great deal of people who play Kingdom Hearts gloss over the villains and their struggle. They've been working for YEARS. Years of research, years of painstaking effort, years of yearning for something they can't quite reach. Years that are so totally obliterated by our Sora that not only do they mean nothing, but no one remembers them, either. Here's your life lesson, folks. Never dream of doing big things. Someone will come along and keyblade you to death because its different from the norm.

Anyhow, uh...
I like how Braig, Ienzo, and Xehanort (to an extent) came out. Everyone else sucks. Dilan looks like a girl, Even looks like a grandma, Elaeus looks like he's on Steroids, and Ansem looks like Tseng. But hey, this was actually drawn a while ago. I promise I'll work on making future drawings not suck so much.





The reason this was sitting on the pending shelf for so long was because I was experimenting with many various background options as I tire of needlessly blank whiteness all the time. So yeah...it's true that Saeru got a lot better at drawing over the course of me getting around to coloring and assembling this. ^_^; But we did spend some time on this, so might as well upload it. I think the expressions are still fairly amusing on this. Feel free to caption any of their dialogue. ^_-

Watercolors, watercolor pencil & Microns. A bit of Photoshop at the end to touch up and add the background (which is a photo of mine of some wall in Jerome, Arizona.)



Character ideas c Square-Enix / Disney.
Actual designs c us.

Ansem is a pedophile. Why else would he be so obsessed with seeing Roxas get inside Sora?

I could identify everybody right away except Braig, and that's because I always picture him with his ponytail. This is neat!

I love them all, especially little Norty. He looks like the runt, but also the most curious and knowledgeable of the group. It's a neat illustration, especially before their true releases in Birth by Sleep. I do agree though, they HAVE worked hard in looking for something they couldn't obtain, just out of their reach until they fell to darkness. :<

This is awesome!I think my fav is either Braig or Ienzo.But I was just talking to my sis about the fact that Sora didn't care.When you have been doing something for years,and then someone comes and takes that away.And plus,their Proof of Existence is gone thanks to Sora A.K.A. jerk-face. >=(

Thank you! I've been pooling for us to bring some apprentice art to cons, but U-E says that its just a bit too obscure. I get a crack out of them, though.

Hi, I love you. This is by far the best Original Six fanart out there. I absilutely adore Ienzo and Aeleus. You've captured it so perfectly... and Braig. Wow. You've just made me love him 10 bazillion times more. It's wonderful.

And...its great you appreciate Braig. ^.^ He needs appreciation.

i can saftly saw that 1) i can't spell and 2) i would consider dating Xehanort, deffinatly Braig, maybe Dilan, a probably not Even, a BIG no on Aleues (refer to #1) and a no on Ienzo because that woud be craddle robbing
:D
i really like the way this looks
i mean for serious, it looks great. you should do younger versions of Saix, Axel, Demyx, Luxord, Marluxia, and Larxene! ^^ that would be amazin!

I always thought Even looked like an old granny, or a girl at least. I think you did a good job in making him look somewhat younger. Although it took me a bit to figure out that the 3rd kid with the purple and brown hair was Xigbar, I love his. And now I'm thinking if they were half as troublesome at that age, then Ansem has my complete and total sympathy. Again. I dont think most people tend to think of who they were beforehand. They dont remember the scientist part either. love the picture.
