As sanity fades by Emortal982 As sanity fades by Emortal982
In celebration of my Ice King being made a daily deviation, and as a thank you to everyone dropping by with faves and comments, I've decided to follow it up with an image based around Ice King's profoundly tragic past. Here I decided to paint a moment in time where Simon Petrikov holds little marceline close, knowing all too well that his sanity is fading, and that sooner or later, he won't be able to shelter her from the dangers of a crumbling world. Honestly, if you can think of a deeper, more tragic character than the Ice King, I'd love to hear about it. *in a kids show*

Prints are available as well: [link]

Once again, thanks everyone. I appreciate your feedback and support!

I just love this.
The positioning of the two of them, and the shading! It is very very well done. The glasses are a favorite. The elements you added to them, such as the crack and the lighting are truly amazing.
The facial differences of the characters are also nice, showing Simon's roughed face and Marceline's smooth childly face.

Superb and wonderful work. Very.

I actually just started watching the show late last year. I wrote it off as some goofy show, but then I got in to it, particularly the back story of Simon an Marcy. It's actually a very well done storyline

(Simon) What I did, I did without choice.

(Marceline) I know

Fine and sad at the same time. In a way, this image and the Petrikov's situation illustrates the tragedy faced too often; parents or guardians who desperately want to care for their loved ones, but cannot because of failing health or some other calamity they cannot control.
