Farewell to Spring by aragorn1014 Farewell to Spring by aragorn1014
Theme #39- Flowers


Hello everyone!! Haha where to start....?

Well, I felt bad for not having posted in such a long time, so I thought it'd only be appropriate that I post a pic that I've been working VERY hard on and was a really huge project of mine.

I drew this about three years ago after ~KeybladeMewKasa once left a comment on one of my drawings a long time ago saying "How come no one includes my Kingdom Hearts OCs in any of their big projects?" hahaha so I started on this as a fun little thing of my KH OC along with other peoples' characters!

Thing was, though, after inking it all in excitedly (yes, by hand), my coloring skills at the time were awful and I messed up one of the panels SO badly that I cried and refused to look at it for two years haha.

And then I decided to pick it up again to see if I had improved or not! Lineart had to be retraced via SAI again so I could try again, but I was determined to finish!

The first 7 panels were done over November and December of last year. I finally finished panels 8 and 9 in January and July, respectively.

So yes-- this is dedicated to you, ~KeybladeMewKasa!

And I wanted to give SUPER special mention to ~ChibiKingSama for teaching me his scanning ways!! I couldn't have been able to post this without his help and support! >//< Thank you so much!

KH OC character list/Flower (Left-->Right and Top-->Bottom):

XD It's absolutely beautiful, but I can't help but laugh because your last deviation is Welcome spring and now it's Farewell to Spring...
I rather enjoy that.

Haha it was done on purpose, silly! =P I figured it might as well be so because a) that was the title I had in my head upon creating this and b) it's well into Summer, so well. xD

Thank you so much though!! <33 I appreciate it and I'm glad you were amused! haha <3

I saw you upload this a few days ago, but I couldn't find any words to describe the awe inspiring piece this is. I'm still having troubles but my lord, this is definitely one of your masterpieces. I love how you paired everyone's characters with certain flowers to describe them personalities. And the coloring is just fabulous as always. The fact that it took you three years to finish is also amazing, the will not to give up on this piece is grand.
