2013 reupload. On the heels of that JT drawing I did last January
, this was drawn in early April 2013. It features Kestanesus
' former persona, JT, and my at-the-time persona Vaerthe. They were stand-ins for ourselves and representative of the closeness we shared and, well, I was generally just being a massive sap. Both "characters" are no longer used - JT is outdated, and Vaerthe is now just a mascot for my art since I grew out of the phase of needing a persona for myself - but this art stands on its own, and its emotional intent still remains. It is what it is, and it looks pretty and conveys what I want it to, even if the technicalities make it a bit odd (I doubt my mascot has any feelings for a random cheetah).
The title was named for a song from the Mass Effect 3
OST which at some point had played at an appropriate time and got stuck in my head and made me emotional, and inspired the piece. I was quite the sap last year... but isn't that always the way with newfound love? Then again, I'm still a terribly sentimental twit - I just control it better in public!
