Frozen by silvestris Frozen by silvestris
So many little hearts, masterless and free - yet he who once lost his can have none.

Detachment and rational logic are all good and dandy; nothing will give clarity of mind like the lack of distracting emotions. Yet, perhaps sometimes, the bite of loss and emptiness will flare bitter enough even a master of ice will suffer from the cold.
Every answer comes with a price - but what will you do at road's end when only one answer matters any more... and you have nothing left to give?

I used to be a huge fan, so the KH-folder of my gallery is full of Vexen-themed art (albeit old - it's been many years). <.)

I especially love that look in his eyes. So frozen over... like there's nothing left inside him but the cold, calculating scientist that he is. o: Beautiful.

(His hair is also lovely.)

He looks so mad and yet so sad... I wanna' hug him but I'm afraid I'll be turned into a popsicle! D:

This is lovey. The colors are so dark yet so flowy. And his eyes... *squeals happily*

Truely, an awesome job. *faves*

And his expression looks so pensive, and slightly bitter...poor thing. Having hearts everywhere but being unable to have one. You can take miiiiine~ D':

The hands and the hair came out very well. The lighting on his cloak is cool too. My favorite part is the way his eyes "jump" out of the picture. :D The hearts in the background are cool too.

Very good depiction of Vexen :aww:

Depends on what circles you move in, I guess. Most places I haunt, Vexen has become very popular. (This may be cause and effect, mind you. XD)

I'd imagine Vexen would be wearing a tank-top and shorts if it was cold...cause his element is ice XDD...:giggle: I love your use of dull colors and blues to express the element of the cold...very nice =3

Vexen really is great. A little bit pathetic, maybe... ;) Waaah! No one respects him.
I like Vexen´s coat. It´s the longest! :D

Aw, but it's his being helpless and pathetic we like about him! XD
And at least he's trying to fight back. Not his fault he gets stabbed in the back. ^^;

And this one...this is my favorite portrait shot of Vexen you've done yet. Utterly contemplative.

I've come many times to gaze upon this pic, but it has totally been backlogged on getting favorited, so now that I'm actually signed in for once, I shall remedy that. ^_-

This may sound silly, but I find it pretty cool you also use Photopaint. XD; I don't really have a reason, but.. I just do. ._.;

And it's a beautiful piece of artwork as usual. ^_^
I've loved your art for years--most of the time not even knowing it was yours until about a year ago. You've been a great inspiration for me and also a factor that's kept me drawing. I know I'll never become as skilled as you (since I'm keeping drawing as a hobby. I want to be a video editor, or even a director.) but I'm not giving up on getting better.

Sorry for such a long comment, but I wanted to get it out. ^^;

I use both Photopaint and Photoshop these days, but yes, there are things I'll only do in Photopaint because it handles them so much better. :heart:

And thank you! Glad you like my art. ^_^
