100 theme challenge #26 - "Stars"
SPOILERS FOR ORIGINS!! If you haven't read it and don't want to be spoiled, JUST LOOK AT THE PRETTY PICTURE.
So glad I finally got this one up. Between having to fill out a sketchbook for class and having to play with background painting for my 2D production class, I actually managed to do this!
I am proud to say that I made that sky and background all by myself.
Got some help from a sky tutorial by
So this is a scene in about Chapter 13 or so, when Po and Izotaskeshi have a momentary cease-fire, and Po learns all about Izo's backstory.
I have to say, numerous times during the making of this picture, I had "If Everyone Cared" by Nickelback either playing on YouTube or I was listening to it in my head. You know, that song that AMV makers have used to death?
In an odd way, I think it works for the scene. And not even from particularly the character's, like it wouldn't make sense if it came out of their mouths. I think it's more of a narrative of what they both subconsciously long for, to put everything behind them and go back to the way they were.
BTW, just a fun little thing to get a feel for Izo's inner struggle. Cover his unscarred eye and see what kind of face you read. Then do the same to his scarred eye and see what kind of different face he has.
As I recall, Nickelback has some songs that bother me.
But I love this one.
