Remembrance by wickedAlucard Remembrance by wickedAlucard
My cousin in Japan asked me to work on this illustration. Her patient passed away and she wanted a remembrance to be given to the patient's husband and for herself to keep. She said that her patient would always hold her hand whenever she'd visit her room, so she requested that I draw them like that. She's been taking care of this patient for years now and said that they've grown close to each other, so yeah, it is depressing aaand I can't turn down this errand.

Well I hope they'll like this. And I also hope she'll rest in peace.

Done in Sai

This is really amazing. It all look so well done and interesting. The moment is sad, and I can't stop looking into her eyes. I think that the watercolor look of it makes it more peaceful, I like that very much.

Good bye is just a way to say until we meet again. Tell her that. I also want to say that you've captured the scene most completely. The way the light falls suggests that she's in peace now but doesn't stifle the grief of this picture at all. My hat off to you. You are an amazing artist. ^_^
