I Was Lost Without You by Aederith I Was Lost Without You by Aederith
2013 reupload. On the heels of that JT drawing I did last January, this was drawn in early April 2013. It features :iconkestanesus: 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 Both "characters" are no longer used - JT is outdated, and Vaerthe is now just a mascot for my art since I grew out of the phase of needing a persona for myself - but this art stands on its own, and its emotional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!

Adorable. We should all indulge our terribly sappy sides now and again. I have no idea how you managed to get two characters to fit together so naturally. That's a complicated pose and it looks great. There was a similar one you drew with Xeth and Vath I absolutely loved too, but you took it down, awws. There's such a sense of contentment in this. Cuddles are the best thing. Seriously. Nothing's better than a cuddle with someone you love. I'm chuffed that you found such a connection with a fellow soul, and it's really sweet of you to share a tiny part of what that feels like with your fans here on dA. Cuteness!

Thank you! :] I agree we should allow ourselves to be sappy every so often, it's a good 'vent' so to speak for all the sickeningly sweet things we're feeling inside! Drawing this was very much motivated by that and I feel like despite the pose complexity and such, it kind of just came naturally from inspiration I had at the time. It took a good while to work on compared to my other work back then, but it was so worth it to just feel able to share some of the good feelings and such with people at the time. Such is how you tend to feel during those times, love can make you want to proclaim how wonderful everything is from the nearest rooftop, haha. :]

(And ah yes, I remember that old one of Xeth and Vath. I was proud of it for a good long while, but it looks so old these days! I didn't so much remove it as just never bothered re-uploading it to this account, haha. :] But I'm happy that you remember things from that far back! )

No problem! And I looked at while listening to the Mass Effect 3 "I Was Lost Without You" that really sets the mood!
