Overflowing Emotions by Purplefire40 Overflowing Emotions by Purplefire40
Both for myself (as I've been telling myself that I would do this piece ever since I finished Tales of the Abyss), and for the Open Arms contest that the :iconthe-da-ranger-group: is holding.

*WARNING!!!! SPOILERS FOR TALES OF THE ABYSS AHEAD!!! READ AT YOUR OWN PERIL!!!*




THIS is how the game should have ended!!!! SERIOUSLY!!!!! :D Of course, there were hints that everyone rushed over to Luke (or Asch or however you interpret it) for a great big dog pile of hugs, but everything was mostly left to the player's imagination. Ever since I finished the game back in 2008, I've wanted to do a piece like this but I kept chickening out. Thank you to the DeviantArt Risembool Rangers for giving me the kick in the behind to get this one going. :D



END SPOILERS

Why yes, I had the soundtrack for the game blasting during the inking, coloring and shading stages. :icondrwhothumbsupplz:

I do believe that night shading is my favorite kind of shading. *throws glitter*

Jade is one of our favorites as well. When my family did a Tales of the Abyss cosplay, the oldest very emphatically claimed that he was going to be Jade and that was that.

He's 35. ;) Which isn't that much older than me so that just makes him fabulously awesome. :D

The oldest of the groups are the most fun ones. Regel (Symphonia), Jade (Abyss), Rowan (Xillia)

Unfortunately, I will have to remake a couple costumes for the younger two. Something about kids growing too fast. :D Actually, mine is in need of repair as well. I had burgundy colored tights for Tear and they ran horribly at the last con I wore the cosplay at.

I love Tales of the Abyss. It's one of my favorite Tales games besides Phantasia & Symphonia Dawn of the New World.

Tales of the Abyss is my favorite out of the Tales of series. Granted, I don't have the systems to play the more recent Tales of games. :)

Yeah, I have the same problem as well. Last year, I bought myself a Wii & I was lucky to find Tales of Symphonia Dawn of the New World by accident. Since I have a Wii, I might get the original Tales of Symphonia. Might get a PS3 to play Graces, Zestiria, and the 2 Xillia games. The only Tales games I own are Phantasia (GBA), Legendia, Symphonia Dawn of the New World and Abyss (PS2/3DS) along with the Vesperia anime movie. I used to own the 1st Radiant Mythology game along time ago.

I got to play Symphonia only because the honey saved up his money for a Wii. :) I've been eyeing Symphonia: Dawn of the New World though, it's one I want to pick up. Also considering saving up the cash for a PS3 just to play Graces and Xillia. :)

I've been playing Symphonia: Dawn of the New World recently & it's pretty good so far. Definitely going to get Symphonia & a PS3 to play Graces and Xillia.

If only they made Tales of the Abyss 2 like some games with sequels. Abyss has the third best male-player in the WHOLE series. Not to mention Luke's true looks is half a mystery to all Abyss players...! So disappointing...

My husband and I have both discussed and agree that there is plenty<\i> of room to do a sequel, just by exploring what happened to Luke during that two to three year period that he was missing. 'I' would totally buy it and play it! :)

You and me both, Abyss is a wonderful game, alas, the flaws of timeline was the only thing that made it a bit off.
