I heard Grey Sky Morning by Vertical Horizon again after a long time, and i suddenly related it to Conrad, the protagonist of the video game Flashback. The image of them standing side by side on a high sky bridge early morning struck me all of a sudden when I was listening to Grey Sky Morning. It can kind of be related to their story in some way (or at least i think so xD) because Conrad leaves Sonia to keep her away from harm. I can just imagine the crushing feeling that he knows she's the one but decided to let her go to keep her safe. #deep #hugot
The original 1992 game didn't mention anything about Conrad about having a love interest but I recall in the short comic in the game's manual they actually did show her briefly, just not in the actual game. I do admit some parts of Sonia in the 2013 game were a little weird for me but I think the addition of her in the story adds more depth to Conrad's character and makes him more human.
I seldom draw anything emotionally stirring for me but I really wanted this one to have a deep melancholy feeling. I wanted to portray feelings and mood rather than an actual scene that happened. He's carrying on his mission but he can't help but remember her the same way she can't forget him. #deep #havewehitoilyet
I based Sonia off the picture Conrad was holding at one part of the game, and Conrad here is actually me hehe. (yes, i'm a pretty big fan of the game xD) I played a live action version of him for my personal shortfilm/trailer which you can watch here! www.youtube.com/watch?v=jZIkCT…
Anyway, hope you guys like it! God bless.
