I miss you by LadyLoriel I miss you by LadyLoriel
Okay, what is it with me and drawing pics like this lately?! I need to draw something really happy soon to make up for it.

Anyway! This is for one of the themes this month in :iconoc-theme-challange:
Decided to try the more emotional one. Because I really need to work on those kinds of things.

As for the pic itself. I thought Linda would be a perfect candidate for it. Especially after the loss of her father, an event I will not go into detail on, she was left with the burden of ruling the Torakian empire and fix the wrong doings of her father. But as terrible as Manfred's last time was, Linda never stopped loving or caring about her father, she spent a lot of time and effort into trying to save him from himself (and the strange advisor that showed up after he mother's disappearance).
Unfortunately she was unable to help him, all she could do was to be with him when he took his last breath. She is filled with guilt, thinking that if she noticed sooner then maybe she would still have her father with her and alive. All she can do now is mourn his death that now weigh her down more than the responsibility of the empire, and cling on to the hope that maybe one day she can forgive herself and be the queen her father believed she could be.

Anyway! I hope you all like it ^^
I know the shading is a bit off, but I admit I got lazy and frustrated with it.

I AM GLAD I AM NOW NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO MADE AN ANGSTY PIC FOR THE THEME;;;; But oh my GAW I forgot how gorgeous Linda is!!! I NEED TO DRAW HER ONE DAY!!! >>>:V I am especially in love with her because omg, black queen/princess!!! You don't see those in fantasy too often and it makes me sad

But I love how you pulled this off!! you can really tell she is distraught over her father's death, and the background is such a nice touch too ;0; aahh and the flowers were such a nice addition too!!

I love angsty pics! For some odd reason... XD
And Linda is pretty because she takes after her mother... She also got her skin tone from the mother XD
And you're right, it's not often you do see black queens/princesses in Fantasy... Especially not of countries that are western/victorian inspired (like Torak is). And I agree it's a shame.

And thank you! I have said this before but I say it again, because I'm just so happy that the emotion I went for is showing so well. ;3;

You did an AMAZING job with this piece. The emotion is there without having to be exaggerated at all. Her pose and silent crying is more than enough to display her grief and sorrow. The rain just added that little extra emotion to the picture. Like i dunno, looking at this makes me feel that atmosphere of the rain near the ocean there. It's probably cold there too. I really love this picture and Linda as well! *hugs here*

this piece is so beautiful! ;o; it has such emotion and the pose is really natural as if she did just drop and break down.
also this is random but I love how the plaque looks! with the engraved letters looks really effective! ;3
