longing ~ Sleeve Cover Art


I actually had this image in my NG file dump since 19 May 2020, and I probably drew it a good bit before then, as a sign of hope for my beloved Seán and me.

The time has come for me to pull that image and use it for something. It is now going to be the sleeve cover of my upcoming song and submission to the inaugural Newgrounds VGM Challenge.

Drawn on MS PowerPoint, likely coloured on Autodesk Sketchbook. I am not including this in the Art Portal as is, since my colouring and my sense of where clothes go has dramatically improved since I did this drawing -- but it is too precious for me to discard.

The Shield is an especially nice touch. On top of making the groom look badass it makes it looks like he takes the classic vows seriously. Especially "For better and for worse." What can be more worse in their life than something that requires a shield to defend them from.

Ok, this is bonkers, no kidding.

Amazing art
