Sora WIP 1 by YumeSprite
Sora WIP 1
My scanner isn't big enough to get the whole image, but that's OK. I just needed to get this concept from paper to computer and work out some values so that I get other work done! I can't stop thinking about how much I want to do this piece. :) But now that I've got this much out of my head, I can let it rest for a while.

My true concept is that this will be a complete circle, but perhaps I'll make it an oval. In my awesome world, this would be painted onto a dome ceiling, and you yourself would have to look up at it! Anyway, It's based on the message behind the final "secret" video from Birth By Sleep in which it emphasized that Sora, who's name literally means "sky", is the one person who is the connection between everyone. It also comes from the message that Kairi writes in the letter found in the bottle in KH2, and is read in the opening preview for the very first Kingdom Hearts game:

"There are many worlds, but they all share the same sky ---
one sky, one destiny"

Heavenly Sword - Kai colored by YumeSprite
Heavenly Sword - Kai colored
I liked my Kai sketch so much that I decided to try coloring her crouching deep in shadows, spying on someone in the light.

You can see the original sketch in my scraps gallery here.
Drawn with pencil, colored in Photoshop 3.

Heavenly Sword - Kai by YumeSprite
Heavenly Sword - Kai
Pencil sketch of Kai from Heavenly Sword (2007). While reflecting on games, I realized that Heavenly Sword was the very first game I played on the PS3. I absolutely loved Kai! Poor crazy girl.

2015's Knocking! by YumeSprite
2015's Knocking!
Can you hear it?

A quick personal piece I did today to say goodbye to 2014 and hello to the New Year, which starts in 11 hours! Happy New Year to you and yours!

Made using Sketchbook Pro 7.
Laura Croft Sketch by YumeSprite
Laura Croft Sketch
A very quick sketch of Laura Croft for Sketch Dailies on twitter! I only had a sticky note pad, but that's perfect for sketching. I often get intimidated by the size of normal paper. And this day my window was streaming with condensation, so I placed Laura at the base of a waterfall as she stalks her opponent in the wild, and photographed her against my paper screen! Naturally, you can't see the actual streams of water going down my window, but it's still there. ;) And I love the intensity of the glow. :D

You may make a request if you'd like. :) I'm a little busy working on some new deadlines, but I'm sure I could draw something you'd like in my spare time. If you send me a note, we can probably work something out.

Oh, I'd love to - and totally felt like it when I was done - but if I did I'd rather try do do it in a more unique style. I also have other projects I'm working on, so basically the answer is no. :/ I did this one specifically as an exchange with my younger sister. never know. :)
