Ice Cage by cat-cat Ice Cage by cat-cat
Done in Open Canvas (as usual...)

Sorry, more ToR fanart.... bwahahahhaaaa~~~~ *dodge flying bricks*

The lines seem to went all weird after I've shrink the pic (original was 1800 x 2600...) *dies*

Anyway, this pic is inspired by the prologue of the game (where the sudden awakening lead to Veigue's force going into rampage and as a result, without intentionally doing so, he has sealed Claire within a block of ice)

Quote: "But no matter what I do, I couldn't break the ice. So the only thing I can do was to sit there and watch over her..."

Poor Veigue.... I really want to give him a hug when he said that.... the ice didn't just trapped Claire, it also trapped Veigue's heart, as he never opens up to anyone after the incident.... *sigh*

Oh and apologies for my pathetic attempt at drawing ice.... I've tried.... T_T

So what I"m trying to figure out is (since I never played Rebirth and I'm still looking for it) how did Veigue release Claire from the ice? Cause I recall Eugene and Mao coming to fetch him and that was all the gameplay I remembered O_o;; The artwork is really nice though I like it x3
cat-cat Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2007
Ah Mao released Claire from the ice when he and Eugene came to fetch Veigue - since Mao's force is Fire.

Ah Ok, that makes sense xD

Good work. :+fav:

It would have been sadder if Claire remains that way throughout the whole game, but thank god that didn't happen. It's cute to see Veigue and his one track mind with anything to do with Claire.
Beautiful jobon both of their characters. Both her desperate one, and his resigned/calm one. I'm not familiar with the characters, but nicely done.

I guess this is your newest obsession? OMG, this is so freaking cool! I remember from the original sketch, and turned out great! I cannot help but faving this (tho I think the girl on the back needs more contrast) :heart:
cat-cat Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2005
LOL yup yup~ This is indeed my current obsession! I just love the characters too much ^^;

Somehow I think this game is made for girls.... (hell, I think the "Tales of" series have a much greater female fan base than male.... there are just way too much room for fangirl imagination in them....)

About the contrast thing.... yah you're right.... I made the mistake by putting the shading for both characters on the same layer.... x_x I shouldn't have done that... stupid me *dies*
MayYeo Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2005  Professional Filmographer
Ah, itś not a problem, I know you work with PS. Just apply image---> contrast with the selection over the girl and voilá! Maybe adjusting levels would be good too. Just try, it will make a difference :)

Pathetic attempt at drawing ice...? What are you talking about? It's wonderful! The whole pic is wonderful!

This was the one you were drawing earlier wasn't it? I'm sure i've seen you draw this before.

Oh wow, that ice looks so cool! You did a killer job! Besides, where the heck would you be able to find a reference for someone frozen in ice. :giggle:

fantastic! the ice looks so great!
maemi Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2005
Ohh, it's wonderful. I think the ice is pretty good, actually. It would have been nice to put more of those spikey-ice-thingies that protrude from the ground, but I think it's stunning.

I love the hair and the outfits, and I really like how Veigue turned out. Great job as always ^_^b
fatal-rob0t Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2005
don't care what you say about your ice... I think it's fantabulous! It looks like ice.
