Started out as a sketch request for the epic folks over at doodle_emblem
on LJ, but uh, got carried away as usual. [Not my fault, I thought it turned out rather well.]
Thought of showing a different side of Nephenee, as she's always happy, or just curious about a life aside from her village. This one ... she's gone through hell and beyond, lost some dear friends [maybe Brom or Zihark or Calil?], and is struggling to come to terms with why she fights.
It's kind of a different look to Fire Emblem when you start remembering that every character that dies - whether it be your own, or the enemy - has a brother, a friend, a mother or a lover, and that they're people with their lives.
Flowers at the bottom are red poppies - used in the UK's Remembrance Day
, and -I've heard- in a few other countries as well.
On a different note - Can you find all 8 stat-up items in the flowers?
[ Energy Drop, Seraph Robe, Spirit Dust, Secret Book, Ashera Icon, Dracoshield + Talisman?]
The 60 poppies also represent the 60 charries you get in PoR.
Time: 10-ish hours.
Programs: SAI and CS5
