The Sleeping King by SuzakuTrip The Sleeping King by SuzakuTrip
He gave everything, not to protect the country that adopted him, but the woman and child he loved. Tormented by enternal sleep he would never die, never age, and never rest. He would only awaken when he was needed the most.

And everyday she would come to him and whisper, "I need you."

Here is the most tragic part of my OC Apollo. I've had this sketch around for awhile but never finished it (still haven't!) Apollo is Queen Serenity's husband and the father of Usagi. He's a prince from the sun kingdom that threw away everything for LOOOOVE.

He acts with his heart long before he would ever think about doing something.

Still need to finish the stained glass on the windows but hey one and a half aint bad right? For everyone who wanted me to draw more of my characters :D

More on a bastardization of a King Arthur myth. I think a Selene myth would have been so much sadder and ending up with Serenity dying :(

Funny that he's from the Sun, as Queen Metallia is from the Sun too....

Hmm. Mother, or ex-betrothed?

Also? FREAKING SAD!

Whenever I think of Metaria she's more of an elemental in my brain. Sort of the conscious thought of the chaotic feelings of the Sun people.


Now do I think Apollo may have accidentally pushed Metellia into existence with his willfulness and abandonment of the Sun Kingdom...


yes.


Yes I do.

Stained glass is very hard...someday I'll learn how to make it just to draw it most effectively!

He sounds a lot like a certain pigtailed heroine we all know and love. XD I love Serenity's face, though it makes me sad. The dark shading is a great mode-maker, too. I can't wait to see the other windows!
