For :iconpeahopeless:'s story Don't Tell Her.

"His demeanor fell ... his entire body sagging under the weight of what he was doing. What he would soon *have* to do.

"Don't tell her," he asked mournfully of his old metal friend. "When she arrives ... ... when I am no longer here ... ... don't tell her that I knew how the end would come...""

Media: pastel pencils, Photoshop lighting effects

OMG... that particular story... it was so powerful and sad... the way V denied himself all hope... it was gut-wrenching, just like this drawing of yours.

Oh yeah, and I showed it to Paul. He's impressed (and naturally saddened) too. :( Which is a good thing, obviously ... but still ... :(
You know what I mean.

Yes, I do. :) I'm not "glad" to make such a sad image, but it needed doing and I'm glad it at least cooperated.

Oh damn it. After I posted that comment, and was going to check that it posted properly, my eyes took the time to read: "don't tell her that I knew how the end would come"

You know, I honestly don't remember typing that line, but reading it sure hurt. :(

I know - it hurt on this end as well. :( I swear, if I had a nickel for every time I wanted to just give that man a hug...

Watch me now, as I once again, copy and paste from my comments in the lj. :D

You know, even the knight looks as if he wants to help. That pose ... the beg in the armor's right leg ... the almost offeratory way the spear/sword is leaned outward. The armor is not standing at attention ... it feels for him. And as I said privately ... he knows he's gonna die, and 'without' having 'won' her.
Aww crap. :( :( :(

And ya know, the way he's holding the breastplate to himself ... on the surface, it's 'logically' him insuring that it will fit (for lack of a better description). But it's not ... it's more like self-comfort in grief?
