Anime Evolution Print 03: Blending Hearts

The next up in my arsenal of prints for AE is a Kingdom Hearts flavored work.

The Picture
I decided to draw everyone's favorite destiny island residents ( well i like Tidus and Wakka too but they're no where to be seen in the second iteration ) When i saw this one in my head, i pictured Kairi at the bottom * looking as cute as i could draw her * instead of putting Sora first. I felt he'd look better at the top. I was going to go with a tint on each character ( like the art from the first game ) but in the end, i decided to keep it like this. Then as an added touch, i wanted the colors to kind of bleed off of the characters, and blend together.

As always, i wanna know what you guys think : )
Many thanks to the lovely :iconjoodlez: for her sage like advice and assistance. She's the reason Kairi looks cute, and sora doesn't have Super Saiyan hair.

Tools: tablet, Photoshop CS 3

Sora, Kairi, Riku (c) Tetsuya Nomura
Kingdom hearts (c) Square Enix/ Disney

Personally, I think that this is the finest picture of the trio anywhere. Very nicely done.

The original trio.
I hope Kairi rolls with them in teh 3rd one. And I hope Riku can still be a threat (to the heartless) even without his dark magic.

This is amazing! I love how you drew Kairi, she looks very tomboyish, and it's adorable <3 This is probably one of my favorite Kingdom Hearts fanart yet, and I love how you used Kairi's Kingdom Hearts 1 outfit with long hair. :3
