Terranigma - Ark's Final Journey (2013) by Meekochan Terranigma - Ark's Final Journey (2013) by Meekochan
The first time I saw the ending of Terranigma (SNES action-RPG), I was baffled...then teared up during the credits.
Years later, I took a look at the ending again. Understood it better...but still teared up at the credits.
Nowadays? I still tear up when thinking of it. It's so beautiful...yet unfair!!! *shakes fist*

Anyway, a recent contest reminded me of Terranigma yet again. Realized the ending credits would make a lovely speedpaint... Even though my skills failed to captured what I envision... The thumb looks great to me. Up close? Not so much. >_<

[edit] A day later... I'm liking how this looks overall. (As long I don't zoom in. >_< The image above is at 30% the original size.) Thinking of redoing this in the future...and making it more polished instead of a speedpaint. [/edit]

Wow it's amazing! I watched the ending on youtube because I didn't play the game and you really did capture the ending.
The only thing that looks somehow confusing to my eye, is the water. It looks like it flows over the trees?

Thanks reach1. ^^
Ahahah... the river...yeah. Um, I added it as an afterthought towards the end. >_< But you're right, I should have noticed that when I threw it in. Maybe I'll do polished version in the future (and actually look up refs.)

I always cry at the end, too.  It's so poetic, but cruel.  You really captured the beauty of his dream flight here.

Thank you. ^^ Glad to hear that. At one point I thought I destroyed the beauty. *sweatdrop*

I like it :) You did a wonderful job, the sky is really beautiful! 
But the ending was really sad and unfair. -.-

Thanks! I was afraid the sky and clouds looked too weird since I didn't look up refs. Glad to hear you like it. ^^
