E3, the annual event where the big guns are brought out and cheers of nerds fill LA Convention Centre. I was not planning on streaming it but my friend was watching it so I thought I would join her just because. AND OH BOY was I glad I did.
Because of the announcement of KH3.
The moment we saw DISNEY flash across the screen, we started flipping out. Too many feelings, man. jkagdkasdjf
Basically after the Sony press conference, I was like, OK, Sony wins, everybody go home.
Kingdom Hearts is a part of my childhood. I’ve been a fan for 10 years. And… I believe it’s the only series left from my younger days that hasn’t actually come to a conclusion like Harry Potter and Fullmetal Alchemist. Remember those times when some series you followed for a long time was over and you would go, “My childhood is overrr….” Well. My childhood is still here, because KH3 is here, and KH is fun for all ages!
I admit, I like KH more than I like FF, mainly because I have followed the series since it’s inception. So… I’m not as excited for FFXV as I am for KH3.
I wonder how the new KH theme song is gonna be like since Utada Hikaru isn’t going to be in the picture anymore? Yuna Ito? I wouldn’t mind lol… speaking of her, where is Yuna Ito …
Anyway I drew KH fan art. I have never drawn KH fanart ever before even though I have been so into it for so many years. haha. 8)
I used a old board that still had paper I found at home. It’s pre-stretched so I didn’t need to stretch the paper.
I was trying a new method of painting skies. Doing it in 2 layers instead of the usual 1 layer that I do.
At first I wanted to draw them on Destiny Islands, then the little voice in my head was like… THIS NEEDS DURAMATIKU SUKAI.
So goodbye Destiny Islands, maybe next time.
It usually doesn’t matter which you start with in watercolour painting, but I prefer to paint backgrounds before I do foregrounds.
Adding the clothes in yo!
The final product.
We also watched the livestream from the Square Enix booth but there really wasn’t anything interesting/informative. Basically it was an hour or 2 of Nomura saying “sou desu ne” and sniff a lot. Maybe it was raining in LA.
By the way, this is a shout out to my dad. I LOVE YOU, DAD. HAPPY FATHER’S DAY. ❤
