Into the Dark by Inonibird Into the Dark by Inonibird
This. Took. FOREVER.

But I'm done! :w00t: YAAAAY! And I gotta say, I'm surprised it turned out...uh, as well as I THINK it did. Phew. :phew:

All righty. So this is post-death for BOTH The Joy/Boss and The Sorrow, as in, right after Life's End...I didn't really want to draw them ethereal because I felt the whole opacity thing would detract from the image. So shush, I know they're both ghosts, who cares if you can't see through them!? It's...it's artistic, goldurnit! :shakefist:

I'm quite proud of the fact that I drew absolutely everything you see here, even the background, though I'll admit I had to use a reference for that...I almost spent as much time on the background as the characters. Though the record for most amount of time spent on one specific thing goes to The Joy's damn OUTFIT. GAH, TAKE FOREVER! :crazy:

The lyrics are from "I Will Follow You Into the Dark", a song by Death Cab for Cutie. It's part of my "Joy & Sorrow" mix, hehe. ^^; Anyway, sad in essence, but at the same time QUITE romantic! I mean...love after death, right? Heh. So this counts as another one of my Valentine's Day piccies, huzzah! :dance:

Um. That's it. Hope y'all enjoy. I spent waaaay too much time on this. :unimpressed:


The Joy and The Sorrow are (c) Hideo Kojima, from Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
and lyrics are (c) Death Cab for Cutie

xD You'd think Joy would look just a tad happier, seeing as she's just been reunited with her lover and the father of her child... xD
