Kiyo's Heaven: Plain Of Spirits by Borruen Kiyo's Heaven: Plain Of Spirits by Borruen
Heyo, Guys!

Color edit! My Monitor had it's colors all messed up, too much saturation, so the real colors of this drawing were a bit dead although they seemed right here, now they are right the way they were supposed to be :D

it's finally done!
After a month away (Classes are finally over!), it's done.

Concept!

This piece portrays a place where children go in the afterlife. Each child has it's own "afterworld", with the materialization of it's own memories and how he or she perceived the world while alive.

This is the afterworld of Kiyo, a young boy who died unexpectedly when an air raid hit his hometown. He died together with his dog Oro when they were searching for food.

The giant dog is the materialization of what Oro represented to him: a giant, magical being, with ears so big, that Kiyo thought Oro could fly. The smoke coming out of the flowers represent how he saw the whole town burnt. How trees, buildings, fields, parks, grass, everything seemed to be dead and expelling smoke.

Kiyo's father was a navy officer who fought and died in the war, having his spirit lost somewhere in the afterworld. His mother went missing and nobody, not even Kiyo, knows where she is. She may be still alive and suffering in the war, or dead and resting somewhere in the boy's paradise.

That's when his quest starts. The boy seeks to reunite with the spirits of his family in this whole new world.

He will need the help of Oro and his two new companions, Zapaan, the amalgamation of Innocence, and Pazaan, the spirit of childish mischief. With them, he will delve deep into every part of this afterworld. They will defy the Swamp Of Fears, The Valley Of Nightmares and Bogeyman's Fortress in order to finally rest in peace.



that's it guys! Hope you like it, comments, favs, critiques, everything is more than welcome! Merry Christmas and happy new year!

The colours the shapes the vividness , the monster the group, ressemblance of angel devil and human , and maybe god ? i dont know but composition of this picture really impressed me , lines are so good, the amount of the detail is so much my eyes got tired after 1 minute of looking at your picture i really cant find bad spots, or a bad thing to say about this picture i loved it so much,. but one thing to add the dark spots of the monster should've been more visible. but apart from that its all awesome. god bless you dude, i really loved your picture

Oh wow, now this is impressive. The contrast of the colors from blue to red is so amazing, and his expression in priceless next to the stance of the little people. Love the texture on the big guy's skin; it somehow looks rustic and old-timey. So awesome lol

this is... amazing... and the story is really fantastic. I read it and almost cried! It's full of child like naivety, but also with the sorrow of a hard life. Really, fantastic job here.

It's a sad and beautiful concept. Any more "afterworld" images planned? And when's the book coming out? TELL me there's gonna be a book! :)

Anyway, this is amazing.
