What's this!? Luke....IN MAI GALLERY!?
LOL

Inspired by the song Karma by Bump of Chicken. [Also the ToA OP]
:heart:
It's actually, a very deep and meaningful song.
Ever since I read the english translation, this image is the first thing that came into my head. So, I've been meaning to draw it for a long time now. Or rather, finish it.... OTL''

You know what's sad, I take a break from drawing school-related art to draw MORE art [well the stuff I WANT to draw anyway]. LMAO WTF. I think that will drive me mad one day, but let's not think of that.
D:

Luke Fon Fabre + All characters (c) Namco/ Tales of the Abyss

WOW this is AMAZING!! I like how you used the marbles/glass, whatever translation you read XD in the drawing. You should've drawn Luke and Asch in the same marble! XD

Ooooh, this is so pretty! I really like the symbolism and how it matches the lyrics. Ever since I read the translations I've loved how symbolic it was too. Poor Luke, ya can't help but feel sorry for him, even if he was a bit of a brat in the beginning. :heart:

Yeah, me too. Tis such a happy song. It's sad that they didn't let English fans get to enjoy it in the beginning animation. Or at least translate it into English. Oh well.

I liked him in a different way in the beginning I think. He was the type of guy you liked to make fun of. ;)

I love the song Karma soooo sooo much aghhhh.

There's an amazing LJ community that has every single one of Bump of Chicken's albums uploaded: [link] . That is, if you haven't gotten them already.

Anyway. I love this picture! I feel like there isn't enough love out there for spoiled!bitchy!longhaired!Luke. :B

I command to steal some of your sexiness.

yes.

OK. So I really really love this. It must have taken you such a long time too! All the details in the marbles are like woahhh. And I love how they're all shiny and schtuff. They look amazing! The shading and highlighting on the hair is absolute epic win. I love how that came out. Luke looks all glowy and stuff and I think that's a really nice touch to the drawing. His expression is so perfect and pensive and somewhat like and unlike Luke, in a way. It's very nice. Even the hands look nice... and they're kinda off the page XD The shading on the gloves is what makes them look amazing!! His eyes also came out really nice. The hair makes me happy though... I love how it flows around the page. It really brings me to look at the entire piece rather than just one part. Me likey :D And the background just fits. End. :glomp:

How beautiful. : < The hair must've taken you forever to color, it's so detailed and lovely! I really like the addition of the lyrics in the background, they're visible, but not distractingly so. And good gosh it must've taken a while to do all those marbles. D>

It really is intimidating! Everyone seems so opinionated on certain matters that I worry about doing or saying the wrong thing that might start a riot. orz

Well I'm glad I could help at all, in that case. TT I was sad I couldn't find an auction for you beforehand. *hugs*

Definitely artistic, and Luke is one of my favorite characters out of any 'Tales of' game. I don't know why; I usually dislike the spoiled and whiny characters, but he's awesome like that, I guess. xD

Luke looks just alittle bit baby-faced but then again its long haired Luke so yeah. The hair's nice too though and his eyes are real pretty. =]

This. Makes. Me. HAPPY :heart: :heart:
Seriously, this is just awesome! The new ToA anime has gotten me on a ToA high again, and I find this lovely pic in my inbox. Seriously, everything about this is sexy. X3 Getting to the point, though...
The coloring is epic win. Like, everything about the shading is just gorgeous, especially all the little strands of hair and the amazing shading on the skin. Also, I love the way you colored the marbles, they look really shiny and awesome. It's it's amazing you fit the characters in the marbles 0.o Anyway, Luke's bright hair against the blue sky looks nice, and adds great contrast. Speaking of that sky, it really looks beautiful *_*
Also, I love Luke's expression and pose. His eyes look so pretty, and he looks so peaceful yet a little sad here. It's really pretty<3 Also, the hands came out great, I love the concept you made for this. Karma is such an awesome song, I LOVE the translated lyrics. It fits the story quite well.
Really, though, I love this<33333 Can I plz have some of your skills? X.x
