Remembering the Lost by JECBrush Remembering the Lost by JECBrush
After a long and quiet patrol over the grasslands of Katina, Bill and Nora settle down and rest at the Star Fox Team's rendezvous point. As the two waited, Bill gets to know the young woman. Eventually Nora gets sentimental and shares her saddening tale. Bill was then compelled to share his losses as he attempts to man up and hold back tears at the same time.

This one was done off and on for numerous hours. The mix of warm lights and cool shadows was a great practice. Always room for improvement on everything. I like the mountains in the background though. :)

For fun, you can fill in the blanks to what they are saying!

Star Fox & Lylat Wars Nintendo

you know, something about holding the dog tag of the lost members, and the look of the field reminds me of halo reach.

I just love Nora's pose! She looks relaxed and chilled at the same time. I am glad they get to have breaks after a long and tiering mission! :)

BILL!!! Where ya been buddy?!!!

I love this series man, and for some reason Bill's helmet really stand out to me, I think it's the way the tint in the glass is shaded. Nora is a very gorgeous character too and the lighting is amazing! So rich!

Bill's been pretty busy ever since the Aparoids attacked the Lylat System.

I've always envisioned Bill with a very cool helmet as it is one of his defining features. I'm happy you like Nora as well. ^^

Thanks a bunch!

I never got to play the game too.  I should get my hands on it via. amazon just because.

There's also something very romantic and full of heart the way you did the sunset palette.  I think it's the rosy hues and contrasts.

When I was making the image, I chose sunset colors as they are romantic. The sunset itself, I think, can symbolize the end of a life which loss is the theme here. It all seems to work for everyone.

The games are pretty fun in my opinion and you may like it if you are into spaceship shooters. They mix it up with Adventures though. ^^

You an almost imagine that they are pouring out their emotions in front of you, and that you are compelled to hug them. :heart: this is truly astounding! Keep it up, whatever your secret is.

incredible atmosphere, the mood is sad yet revereing, honoring the losses of comrades' is never a easy emotion to swallow. you protrayed the sadness exquisitly with the tears flying from Nora as she holds a picture. this masterpeice brings a new meaning to frozen emotions in a still shot, its beautiful, well done sir,:salute: :rose: :handshake: :pat: :trophy: :bow:

you bring out the best of your charachters in every emotional aspect, i litterally teared up when i read the caption about what made her cry, because I also have been put through similar situations, and being forced to press on is never easy especially when the ally lost is a friend. Every emotion has its beauty. it proves to ourselves that we are not mindless or deprived of a soul. you sir,:salute:have incredible ability to resonate emotions :rose: in your many masterpeices :handshake: :trophy: :worship:

It's pretty easy to fill in what they're saying, but it's a very dramatic scene, a movie about that fanfic that ole' Kubo is writing would make a great movie that's for sure with this little bit in it as well. :D

Yeah and my fursona/character is something of a half-breed of Cerinian fox and Cornerian wolf and he's like a 14 year old, Cerinian half-breed version of Fox Mccloud because he's almost invincible and very good pilot and fighter.
