Can Heaven Hear Me? by BlackThornRose Can Heaven Hear Me? by BlackThornRose
Edit: This deviation was redone by using Yuumei's tutorial and clouds brushes, which can be found here

"I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you." Psalms 32:8

"Threw It All Away" by Burn Halo…
"Savin' Me" by Nickelback…

This type of image has probably been done a thousand times before but I really wanted to do my version of it with Yamato. Mainly because he sees himself as a bird with broken wings that'll never make it to heaven. Likewise, he's unsure if his pleas can be heard in heaven. Especially when the only one he hears nowadays, the one who answers him the most, is Diabolos, the devil inside him.

It's hard to keep faith when doubt has set within your heart, it leads you to questioning everything and looking for answers in all the wrong places. So when one finds themselves straying from their path, they should look to the heavens for guidance. But when you harbor fear and doubt, what decision do you make? Will relief or regret follow? This is where he stands...

It also helps to have someone by your side. Another person which you can share your thoughts with, who can give you a fresh set of eyes and help you look at things in a different way. Or if they don't say anything it just feels good to have them listen to you. It's sad that Matt doesn't seem to have someone like that at all, or if he does he is too consumed by his loneliness and pain to notice right now :(

*points to Kamex* A pair of ears waiting and eager to listen. Unfortunately, Matt is drowning in a lot of negative thoughts and fails to notice this, to the point where love and forgiveness are foreign concepts to him. He's surrounded by helping hands but lack of trust, fear, and doubt leave his skeptical, he continues his journey alone...

But I agree. It really does help (or at least help me) to have someone to talk to about these things especially when I'm confuse. Even moreso when the other person has more experience or insight, helpful advice or wisdom. It's just kinda hard to find a person who's willing to listen -and- not be bias, force their opinions, or place judgement on you.

Your version is just as poignant and well done as any other.

Keeping faith can be a challenge.

I agree. Sometimes I struggle to do the same myself.
But thank you, I'm glad you seem to think so. And thanks for the fave~ :hug:
