All we are is dust in the wind... by Samuraiflame All we are is dust in the wind... by Samuraiflame

^ Song from which the title was taken. I suggest listening to it while reading the description.

So this is something I drew for ~Jay-Jay-Bloodhound based on one of our RPs. If you don't want to read the long summary I have, that's fine. XD

It involves Cisaya and his OC, Ralph, in a medieval-ish setting.
Cisaya is the newly crowned queen of a kingdom. Her stepmother, the queen before her was an evil ruler and so the citizens dislike Cisaya because of the cruel legacy left behind. Ralph belongs to an organization of assassins and is sent to kill her. He goes undercover as her personal servant to gain her trust, but when another assassin tries to kill her, Ralph ends up saving Cisaya. He realizes that he can't bring himself to kill her, and instead takes her back to the assassin's camp.

For disobeying a direct order, Ralph has his right eye taken by the leader of the assassins, Stryker. However, Stryker lets Cisaya stay at the camp and tells her how the assassins (formerly known as the Rangers) were once the protectors of the Royal Family, before her stepmother broke their alliance by executing the last Grand Master of the Rangers. Eventually, she finds herself involved with their prophecy and manipulated by the obsessed Stryker.

Luckily for her, Ralph decides to take her back to her kingdom, and they confess their FEELINGS for each other. Cisaya wants Ralph to stay with her and be the new king, but he declines and asks to just become her advisor. Eventually, they get news of a rebellion in the east, and Ralph prepares to go take care of it. While Cisaya is alone, Strykers comes back and tries to force her to make him king. Ralph returns right in time to fight and kill Stryker, and then makes a promise to never leave Cisaya.

Things go well for a while as Ralph is crowned king and they get married. Unfortunately, the state in the east has worsened and Ralph is deeply concerned about it. He finally decides to go secretly, and leaves behind just a letter to Cisaya.
When she finds the letter, she is heartbroken and depressed. At first, all she can do is cry and lock herself away, but eventually Cisaya becomes angry and bitter. Her advisers take advantage of her sadness and stress to change her to their will. She turns into a heartless queen much like her stepmother and oppresses the kingdom once again.

After a year, Ralph returns to find Cisaya has become almost pure evil. She tries to get her guards and strongest knight to kill Ralph, but he defeats them all. Cisaya has also sent many innocent people to die, including children that Ralph once took care of in the Assassin's camp. Although the rest of the kingdom wants Ralph to sentence Cisaya to an execution, he refuses to do it. He slowly brings Cisaya to her senses again, and saves her from being killed by the angry citizens. Together, they decide to fix everything they have done, and change their kingdom for the better at last.

4 years later, Cisaya and Ralph are the much-loved rulers of the kingdom, and now have a daughter named Cherie (nicknamed 'Ree' by her father). However, Cisaya has been deathly ill ever since she gave birth to Ree. They both know that her time is close to ending, and decide to go out to the castle garden to have a picnic. They sit under the ancient tree that contains the royal prophecy and watch their daughter playing. As they are watching Ree, Cisaya gradually grows weaker and weaker and finally dies peacefully in Ralph's arms.

So this picture is just their final scene .3. It's got a special meaning to me I guess XD; because I was bawling all through the RP. I wanted to capture the feelings that Ralph and Cisaya have for each other. They've both hurt each other a lot during the time they were together and apart, but in the end have forgiven each other for everything.

Yup, emotional picture... I tried my best. OTL

My my my, this one is simply lovely. So serene, so sentimental, everything is working together, the color and its tones, the characters, the expressions. You pulled out a nicely job here, very goergous. The ending seemed harsh though, but still beautifull in a way. Congratz :)
