Limelight - Don't Go by EvilVixen05 Limelight - Don't Go by EvilVixen05
Finished! 

It still looks pretty cookie cutter lame from the poses and overall look of the pic. I did try my best with a short amount of time to make it as good as I could get. Sorry, there are many other better fanart but I had to try, y'know? It didn't take me very long to do... like... a couple of days? Usually happens when I get interrupted from doing art by family and such.

I did so horrible on Cry's... entire being in this pic... it just looks so awkward. :/

For the portal I did some lighting effects for the rim of it and I used two colors and liquefied it. (Always copy the layer if you like what you did in it) Then after seeing how it looked... went back to liquefy and smudged it though that to make it look like it was crawling on the girls' arms. 

The two light tendrils (the blue and green wiggly things) are their connections to each other. You know, when the game ends, you feel like the connection is broken kinda thing.

As if it doesn't speak for itself, Cry is reaching out to his three lovely besties, screaming 'Don't go!' 

The reason I drew this was because of the LAST bit of the video. Where Elizabeth was in front of the portal and as a truck is coming towards her? And yet it closes before it does? I find that since she looks at it almost hoping it would open again then appear to be upset and leaves in tears? Then you got Dave dressed up as Cry, lowering his head almost as if in shame. I don't know the actual story behind that scene for Elizabeth (I never saw Bioshock Infinite) but the way it was set up...

It touched my heart because to me it signified that the games was over and both sides (Ellie, Elizabeth, Clem and Cry) are upset that their time together is over... thus.. this! Depending on how you look at it, the portal is taking the girls back to their respective worlds, and they're trying to reach out to him to as he tries to grab their hands... Or the portal throws Cry out of their worlds once his time is over and he's trying to get back in. 

I don't care what anyone else says, Cry sang very well despite his lack in confidence in singing. He put effort into it, worked hard with BoyinaBand to make this the best they could make it. And that hard work paid off.

Don't sell yourself too short on your singing, Cry. You did extremely well and you had fun! That's what counts!

And BoyinaBand... thank you so much for coming up with this and letting Cry to participate. :3 You have one hell of a killer voice and keep that up! (plus, love your hair) xD

Enjoy!

Cry belongs to himself - :iconcryaotic:

Ellie, Elizabeth and Clementine belong to their respective companies

Limelight belongs to BoyinaBand and I guess, Cry too? XD

I love this one, it's most likely my favorite fanart of the song because it really connects with the sadness of the song itself. Really, good job on this, it looks so nice!

:iconaawplz: Thank you! :D I am a bit of an empath so I connect with feelings well. especially what I see and hear. So hearing the song and looking at the body language of the video that I kinda got this in mind and drew it because of how Cry sounded.

When Cry sang 'I loved you' his voice rose and he sounded like he was in anguish when he sang that bit. In knowing how Papa Wolf he is with those three girls, I understood that he was very protective and caring to them. He would take on any challenge in the game so long as he saw them being safe. And when something happens to those girls, he becomes very aggressive to whomever caused them harm. So in hearing the pain and anguish of not 'being' there with them, I knew he already missed them even though he can pop the game back in and go for another go. 

And thanks, I worried it wasn't really much up to par with others. >.> Especially his shoulder being completely out of place but them I never drew in that angle so it was a good practice. ^.^

That's what I like about this picture to be honest. Even if it's not expert style drawing it still channels the sadness of the song and really shows how much emotion he put not only into the song but into the games and his relationships with the three girls.

That song will always be amazing! Cry did very well in singing! Just not something he should do everyday if he's not comfortable with it. Still it was awesome.

I know! So addicting! Cry doesn't have a lot of confidence in singing... and I don't think he should worry about people pestering him to sing. But he sang very well despite what he thinks, he put a loot of time and effort into it and it shows both on the video and in his singing. ^^ That damn calming voice of his... so smooth it almost puts me to sleep. lol

Thanks, I figured that since the drawing a little subpar compared to others and what I drew before... I figured giving the meaning to me would help give that connection. :3
