A sketchpaint of Wander, the ill-fated boy from the beautiful and tragic game "Shadow of the Colossus". There is nothing else quite like it.
You can find the original sketch on my website.

I don't think I've ever seen a more beautiful picture of Wander :faint: It reminds me very much of his determination throughout the game.  Instant fav :+fav:

The game was sad but great anyway I love your work it somehow looks like Roger Taylor (queen) in a way... It's so full of emotion.

My favorite video game hero ever. Although I suppose 'video game' doesn't do SoTC justice. It's art in motion.

Question... is there any explanation as to WHY he turned into an infant after falling.. scratch that, being sucked into... in that pool?

There isn't a confirmed reason as to why actually, though there are a bunch of theories already made based on this. You can actually find some of them here. [link]

His eyes are so sad. You captured him completely, so determined and yet so seemingly fragile. I love the Colossus in the background, a combination of pathos and menace, and the lighting you used is so delicate. Amazing!

i finally discovered this game, im happy and pissed that i did actually! lol i saw the ending yesterday and i said to myself, wow! everytime i think of the game now, i get a small know in my throat and i have the urge to cry! a game has NEVER made an emotion surface like this as this game has (well, except FF10 :P )

ok back to wat i wanted to say:the emotion u captured is PERFECT, this is definetly my favorite face shot of him that ive seen, its simply just WOW! *runs off to cry in a corner*

Everything...
The sad determination, the moral ambiguity (he knows that he isn't doing what's right), the desperation, exhaustion...all for that one girl.

And then the Collosus in the background, his expression, "Not another one...dear lord not another..."

You brought back everything that was so moving about that game. I salute you.
