I really like to draw hands on a character’s face, a gentle caress from a loved one. It was such a nice experience to draw this two illustrations. Drawing loving moments like this is really something I love to do.
I did the illustration of Lunafreya and Noctis last year for the release of the Royal Edition, from its trailer. I was really thinking that we will get more of Lunafreya and Noctis, but sadly we didn’t, though the little moment we got was really priceless to me. It’s such a nice representation of their relationship : « So close, yet so far« .
As for the Illustration with Ignis was a mere dream. Someone far away trying to guide him in the darkness. A pure hearted one like him sure needed a kind and soft help at this time, he was losing one of his dearest friends. The Dove was a representation of liberty and purety. The Crescent Moon in the background was a personal thing of mine, it’s a way to describe the personality of Ignis. I always thought that Noctis and Ignis were more like the Moon for their personality, more Silent and always watching for others. As the contrary, Gladiolus and Prompto were more like the Sun to me, more cheerful and sociably more adaptable, they always have this warm aura around them. Of course, in the piece of Lunafreya and Noctis, Lunafreya was representing the Moon, the light guiding Noctis in the dark night.
Even in dark times, it’s always nice to have someone you can rely on.
