Birth in Sleep by RainChilD18 Birth in Sleep by RainChilD18
and also...FULL VIEW PLEASE!

Well I was actually a little disappointed in KHII. It had so muh potential and I think it came short of what it could have been. Nomura himself said he cut a lot of stuff from the game because he didn't have enough time. So here's to hoping Nomura clears his schedule and makes KHIII with his heart and soul, sweat and blood.

I'm sure everyone is sick and tired of KHII by now, so looking ahead to KHIII, if you've seen the secret ending of KHII, in english you should know the meaning of the words "Birth in Sleep" without fail. This is my vision, Sora in keyblade crossroads. Hope you like it.

Photoshop 7, 3-4 hours total, Sora is copyright Square Enix.

Soooo much filler game!! D:
Although, Kingdom Hearts II: Final Mix is the very truest form of Kingdom Hearts, in my opinion. <3 It's just amazing :love:

Does Birth by sleep even count as KHIII? It is on a completely different gaming device and those of us who don't own said device are SOL. .... It saddens me... it really does... but great picture by the way.

Sora looks hardcore. Oathkeeper is one of my favorites too.

Can't wait till recoded comes out, and that game for Wii.

hmmm... i can agree with you on KH2. i didn't know they left stuff out of it! and I'm hopping that 3's better! i think they could've tied the Disney stories better than they did in this one...

pretty cool. but i hate to dissapoint, but sora will not be in KHIII. why? because it's a prequel taking place 10 years before the events in KH, and is based on the keyblade masters before sor-crap i'm babbling :spamming: good pic

I hope you know that there is no KH3 it is Birth by Sleep for PSP, a prequel, sora is about 4 years old here
decemberdreams Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2008
a gorgeous depiction of Sora! Love it!
Stinger22005 Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2008
Excellently drawn. Fav'd.

I thought that Kingdom Hearts would have been much better if it weren't so easy on standard mode. If the normal difficulty was somewhere around Proud mode it would have been much more enjoyable. I enjoyed it much more on Proud mode than Standard mode because it actually had alot more challenge...or atleast it HAD challenge.

well birth by sleep is actually the new kh psp game, its about the three keyblade knights, and its set 10 years before kh1
Balfran Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2007
I love Sora's pose.

And the Keyblade-graveyard behind it makes me sad.

omg, i absolutely love this^^ i love the yellow tone this has, very nice :D

yeah, i agree with you about kh 2 being a bit of a let-down but it was still a very good game! i just wish kingdom hearts birth by sleep was coming out on a console instead of the psp >_>

i love how you did sora's face, very unique style. this is definitely being added to my :+fav:
Catiris Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2007
I agree about KHII... it was like a song or musical instrument that didn't ring on tune in some parts... I still enjoyed it despite both it's plot and game-control short comings, though I'm hoping that whatever the sequel is will be a large improvement. I don't think it would take much to get better than that... :XD:

just going through your gallery from start to finish... really enjoying it! :D

personally, i though KH II was great.

the only part i didn't like was the three hour tutorial where i had to be Roxas. he attacks wierd when he's only wielding one keyblade.
Kingdomkey Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2007
Wow, very nice. I very like his hood! XD take it as a odd compliment, but I do!
Love your style, the pose and the keyblades are awesome too.

I effin LOVE YOU! Everyone is always talking about how AMAZING KHII really was..I'm always like ..." wasn't that great..." it seemed so much cooler in the ads and whatnot...I don't know..sometimes I think it's because I didn't play Chain of Memories. But it didn't that seem much went on there. Personally I don't belive the story made much sense in KHII...but maybe that's pushing it. Seems like they made it just to look spiffy and give you fireworks with all the new attatchments such as clothing changes and various combos. It's awsome for a hack'n'slash game....okay now i'm rambling

But anyway, you're a very amazing artist ^_^ I hope you get into the college you want to go to! You deserve it!

i love it.. though i won't play in KhIII.

No, I don't understand.... Did Kairi get knocked up or osmething, or is it conceptual?
CBJ3 Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2007  Student General Artist
Oops :P I guess I shouldn't thank you for the faves. My bad. (I looked at someones profile and all they had on it was favorites and I clicked this thinking it was theirs, sorry bout the misunderstanding if there was any)
CBJ3 Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2007  Student General Artist
Excellent job with this. The quote is actually "Birth by Sleep" and I really do agree with you on the fact that Kh2 somewhat fell short of expectations (mine at least) Thanks for all the fave's n stuff too (lol while I'm here)
Julibee-Darling Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
*applauds* I love it! And I totally agree about KHII...I thought they made it a bit too easy. *sigh*
Nicirara Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2007
I love this! Annnd having seen the secret ending form KHII, I love the background. Also, the "birth in sleep" - very nice! ^^ I love the composition, and as in all your work, the freeness of your lines.... plusss the picture is just fab! xD

Annnd as a side note - I really hope KHIII makes up for everything we didn't get in KHII, it had so much scope for new ideas on a continued storyline... ahh, I can't wait though! xD

Such a pity about KHII. I was so dissapointed with the game :\ But this doesn't dissapoint one bit *slobber*
ArmiesAgainstMe Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
Excellent work. I really like the perspective, and the colours flow really well.

Oh, and I totally agree – Nomura needs to clear that busy schedule of his and, as you said, “make KHIII with his heart and soul, sweat and blood.”

For some odd reason I like Roxas better than Sora. But then again that's just me. Australia did indeed get screwed over. It's only been out here for a week or so, thus I'm only up to... hmm... agrabah.... or however the heck you spell it.

Anyway, enough random-ness.

This pic is awesome. I love your style. Both pose and perspective rock. :D

great work. I like the fact that Sora's keyblade hasn't lost its shape. You kept the details in tact :D must watch!
Darkwynd-Fenrir Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2006
okay i hate to be a bearer of bad news but it has already been stated that the next Kingdom Hearts Game is NOT going to be Sora's story. It is supposed to be WAY FURTHER down the road, so here's to hoping that with a new hero, Kingdom Hearts will still prevail..

"Birth by sleep." Actually... >.>; I still love this picture though!
