"And thus they sleep in Valhalla, encased in crystal.
An eternal display of love and loyalty.
It is said the slumber of crystallized l'Cie is full of dreams.
Dreams of loneliness, but also dreams of hope.
And so they can see light in their future.
Hope and Light.
The ones who defied the fate of the Goddess of Death.
The ones who crystallized themselves as a monument for the future.
No future can exist without hope and light.
They have each other forever.
And because of that, they have a future.
Hope and Light.
Their bloom peacefully sleeps in Valhalla, waiting for that future.
A future of hope and light.
A future of them.
A future for them."
Oh, my... FINALLY! I thought I could never finish this! It was the hardest drawing I've ever made!
But it's also... the best of mine, I think. It's not usual for me being truly pleased with my work. This is one of those times! Many hours doing ALL the freaking details have born fruit! [?] *w*
I wanted to do a true Hope/Light drawing. I suck at that kind of drawings, I'm awful for romance and all that stuff. Mainly because I get embarrased for some stupid reason while drawing something like this. That's why I feel better doing comics about it. xDU
Etro's throne is FREAKING difficult to draw. Hell, all those details! It was driving me mad! The crystal swirls were so fun to draw and color when I learned how I should do the crystal effect. I love the crystal stasis swirls. Hope and Light were a bit hard deal because I suck at anatomy. But I managed to do them. That's a relief! xDU
I tried to make the crystal create the shape of a blooming flower. It fits with Lightning's rose-shaped eidolith. The bloom of the future, since every future needs hope and light! [?] <3
If I only was better drawing romantic scenes... But nooooo, I suck so much at this. I'd like to do them some justice. I have to keep trying! xDU
And... well, I think that's all! I'm really proud of a drawing of mine for the first time in my almost eighteen years of life! Now I can die at peace. [?] <3
Oh, Hope and Light... They're just perfect together. Square-Enix, don't you dare to ruin the almost-canonical Hope/Light in a future Final Fantasy XIII-3! Remember what I said! A future needs Hope and Light! [?] >D
Well, hope you like it! *w*
