Well, I got bored of doing lineart for the next comic, and felt like painting something instead... and I had this convenient sketch I'd scanned a few days ago... And felt like doing another

Heeere's Kairi! Seriously, this poor girl does not get enough love from the fandom. Most people seem to hate her for the sole reason that she is Sora's love interest instead of Riku. ...I'm not going to get started on this topic as it drives me up a wall. Let's just say that Kairi is cool. Cool. And I felt bad for her while she was on the island; it wasn't her fault she forgot about Sora at all, and if I were in her place I'd feel wretched...

Hence this picture! Quick-n-dirty speedpaint from yours truly. I forgot how long it took to sketch; it took a little over two hours to paint. I'm getting the hang of this speedpainting thing, methinks.

Bonus points to whoever figures out the other character in this picture. It isn't that hard.

And bonus points to whoever's awake right now! :)

Love this picture, its meaning, and the fact that she's wearing Namine's dress :D

I almost hate Kairi haters as much as I hate Xion haters -_-'

I completely agree with her not getting enough love. Seriously. People think she's weak and good for nothing. She has a lot of spirit within her, most Kairi haters don't realize that. Agreed with the whole Riku and Sora. -___- Oh come on. Can't two guys be the best of friends caring for one another without being suspected as gay!? D8

Anyway, this art is beautiful. I love the tears that's rolling down Kairi's face. It's like she's trying so hard to remember the boy that she cared for, other than Riku, but just couldn't. That is what is tearing her up inside for not remembering his voice or his name.

And I love the Namine reflection too. A very nice touch!

I completely agree with you! Poor Kairi gets so abused! I think she's a wonderful character. A little one-dimensional, but that's not her fault.
Awesome picture. :)

Oh pshaw. Hating her for supposedly coming in between Sora and Riku is saying she CAN.
She's really badly written and comes off as selfish and uncaring. "Let's take the raft and go, just the two of us"? I'm sorry, even if it was really a joke, I wasn't laughing.
Neither was Sora.
