KH - What's left of Me by Cataclysm-X KH - What's left of Me by Cataclysm-X
This drawing almost made me cry.

A huge thank you to ~deedeedee123 for allowing me to draw the same picture of Sora as she did. Please send her some love, too :heart:.

The reference picture comes from the opening scene of Kingdom Hearts II. I wanted to add a little more drama to this scene, so I did. I hope you like it this way.

Spend about 15 - 20 hours on this drawing.
  • kneadable eraser
  • tissues and tortillions for blending
  • 4H, 2H, HB, 2B, 3B mechanical pencils
  • 2H, 4B normal pencils
  • reference picture

  • wonk uoy naht noitceffa erom deen I
    In you and I there's a new land.
    Angels in flight.
    wonk uoy naht noitceffa erom deen I
    My sanctuary.
    My sanctuary Yeah.
    Where fears and lies melt away.
    Music inside.
    wonk uoy naht noitceffa erom deen I
    What's left of me.
    What's left of me now...

    (Lyrics: Utada Hikaru)

    Edit: Changed title so people know this is a Kingdom Hearts drawing!

    Beautiful! I am an aspiring artist. I am okay at it. How did you learn how to draw. Did you learn from books, taking courses, or it it just through experimentation. I am new to deviantart and would love it if you could critique some of my work and help me get better. It would be much appreciated if you did please write back thank you.

    Wonderful picture :blushes:
    It's amazing how you have captured the moment in your drawing.
    It's sad but it's at the same time sooo gorgeus!
    I read it is for sale? how much do you take for it?
    just curious :)

    Sora's hair is definitely hard to do, but you did it perfectly, spikes and all!
    And his eyes are very heartbreaking. Sora, naive, happy Sora, almost never cries.
    DNfreak Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2009
    Gah! Sora is my favorite character in all my video games!!! I can't believe he's crying, it makes me sad!!!!

    In the thumbnail I briefly thought this was a photograph! You worked long and hard with this drawing evidently, and your patience and persistence truly paid off. This is absolutely stunning. I also love that added detail with the eyes, it looks almost like it was done using photoshop because the detail is so precise and full of life.

    Definitely one of the best drawings I've seen on this site. :)

    Pharaoh-Ink Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2008  Student Digital Artist
    Your drawings are amazing, very good, so clean and smooth, but for some reason this one throws me off a little. I think it's his nose.....I think it's too small and his eyes are too far apart from his face, in proportion. This piece is the only one that's like this though, and all of your other work is incredible, and who am I to critique YOU? You're a wonderful artist.
    SufferedHallowed Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2008
    I drew from that part of the intro too >.< lol
    dont remember where it is, but I like yours a crap ton better >.< you have to put up more tutorials O.o

    I love your art! His expression is touching, makes me want to start crying to! Shading always seemed better to me than colors.

    sora has weird eyes but it looks realistic.
    JackxRikuxVincent Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2008
    Japanese words were sadder--

    If I recall--far, far away
    The future shines into forever
    Beneath the beautiful, sapphire sky i'll write more later^^

    but yes, there's definitely more drama in this pic than the original
