Speaking with the Stars by Hanafae Speaking with the Stars by Hanafae
This is Xelha of Baten Kaitos : Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean. I :heart: this game so much!

This is my entry for :iconbaten-kaitos-club:'s contest, "choose your favorite Baten Kaitos piece and draw a picture to match it". But the soundtrack is so beautiful, I couldn't pick just one! :O So I listened through both CDs and let the pictures come to my mind. The one I chose is "Speaking with the Stars", which is track 28 of CD2. I saw Xelha becoming the ocean... though I know it doesn't really look like this in the game :D

I don't know how many times I've almost given up on this one. I just couldn't get it to look like what I had in mind. So I decided to screw it all up: the sky, the ocean, everything. And that's when I started liking it more :D

The background creates such a gorgeous vast and cosmic feeling. You did a really great job! :)
And she's probably one of the most authentic and pretty Xelhas I've seen so far. ^^

Oh, thank you very much! I think I did it in a style that's too much in between realism and non-realism, but I often have that problem :( I'm trying to get rid of it.
But I'm glad you liked the result here, thank you! :hug:

I really think the style works quite well so I wouldn't worry too much about it. ^^

Thank you! :) Yes, it's sad that Baten Kaitos is such an unknown game. It's one the best, most beautiful, and most original games ever :heart:
