SW - Heaven's Light, Hellfire by Renny08 SW - Heaven's Light, Hellfire by Renny08
Ok, this was an out of program!
I was planning to draw some Anakin and some Mustafar (which I'll do, no worries), then I started my Media Player playlist, Heaven's Light from Hunchback of Notre-Dame came first, and this image suddenly popped in my mind.

Well...Anakin and Padmé don't have much to do with the song anyway, but the concept is always the same...she's heading towards the light, and even though he can see it, and it reflects on him (blue highlight on his right arm and right part of his face, if you notice :'D), he just can't reach it...and he somehow knows that.

There was a huge fighting between me and this drawing...I had Anakin's expression pretty clear in my mind, I sketched it down, but there was something wrong, so I erased and then, I spent like a WHOLE DAMN BLOODY HOUR trying to re-get what I needed. Then, when I was at the point of saying "What the hell, I'm destroying this drawing now and not thinking about it anymore" I felt like I couldn't just turn my back on it, tried again and after a few more takes Ani's expression came out just right. Then I looked at the whole thing and thought it was...okay.

You can see the background is very rushed. That's because I was meant to spend waaaay less time on the sketch, and now it's very late and I need to get some sleep, so I rushed it because I wanted to get it down by tonight (because I just know that tomorrow, or better, today now, I won't be able to come back on it).

I hope you enjoy it :')

Sorry Padmé, I don't seem to succeed in getting you look right. I promise I'm going to practice :I

And one more thing...since after like one minute I just understand the bg looks so bad, I think I even might scrap this one. Ugh.

First I looked at the drawing and then at the title. Since then, I have a certain Disney song playing in my mind. No just joking.

Your painting goes much, much deeper than the song lyrics and I do like the background very much. The two different scenes clash together and yet compliment one another.

Padmé is indeed running to the light... while Anakin sinks into darkness.

Anakin passionately torn the republic down just to find that he cannot save her but kill her heart and she falled sadden to death. He then received fabricated news from his master that he killed her in rage that left him in hoplessness. Anakin was dead but born as Darth Vader by his palpatine.
The judge Frollo psychopathically lusted her and punished her for not agreeing with him.
In my opinion, Anakin was far better than Judge Frollo and in anyway cannot replace Frollo's place in Hellfire. Anakin had real love but became manipulated puppet while Frollo knew no love but hatred and tried to manipulate people.
And when you said that she was on the light and he also saw that but couldn't reach that; just knew that. This was just what I thought. He knew that and he was ready to run away from Hell's Fire if someone just gave him a truth hand.

Frollo sounds more like Palpatine/Sidious, the perfect example of a psychopath. The whole point of Anakin/Vader's character is that there's still good in him even after all the horrible, evil things he's done. You're supposed to feel bad for him and realize that in many ways he was slave, to himself and Sidious. Anakin did feel love, even as Vader he felt love, which is evidence by the fact that he sacrificed his life for his son. One of the main problems with Anakin I think is that even though loved, he had some sort of mental illness/disorder (probably Borderline) and so his mind was all messed up and acted in very dysfunctional and unhealthy ways because or in spite of his love. Of course, this makes it even more tragic and Sidious all the more evil because he manipulated and used and man who was mentally ill and needed help. It's even sadder that the other Jedi didn't realize there was something wrong with him; it may have been why Obi-Wan said that he'd failed him because he'd missed all the warning signs until it was too late.

Anakin kept falling deeper into darkness and Padme was his light and when she died he lost the light inside of himself. His son Luke brought light back into his life (Luke means light, how cool is that?!) after so many years where he was in nothing but darkness. He was only person, besides his mother who still saw good him. He tried to pull Luke into the darkness with him but his light was so strong that not only did he resist but guided his father back into the light. Luke loved his father unconditionally, forgave and refused to give up on him and when he watched him die it tore him up inside. That's why Star Wars always stood out to me even as a child because instead of being about the hero killing or defeating the villain it was about the hero saving the villain and feeling genuine grief and pain at his former enemy's death.

I really love this piece. The whole "one person towards the light, one towards darkness" is a little cliché, but you actually put a nice spin on it by showing highlights on Anakin and his face partially towards the light. It's really nice

This really reminded me of the fanfic I read on Fanfiction.Net.This is where after death,Anakin goes to the netherworld.But it isn't actually one netherworld.there are 3 different worlds.Those who did good things go to the First World,where they can be safe,and from where they can go as a spirit to the living world,or as a real person to the Second World.Those people who did lots of bad things go to the Third World,where they turn into the monsters called the Narzgh(I don't remember if this spelling is correct).And those who,like Anakin were in the middle,go to the Second World,which is much like the living world,but it's much more dangerous,because every time it rains the border between the Second World and the Third World disappears,and the Narzgh attack the Second world.If a person is killed in the Second World before they atone the bad things they commited,they go to the Third World without a chance of coming back.
Obviously,Anakin went to the Second World,but there was something he didn't expect.Padme was there too,because after death she exiled herself into the Second World.There,she is a politician again,and she tries to protect her people from the Narzgh.Put the Premier is against her ways,and secretly tries to assasinate her(later it is revealed that he was Palpatine's servant).So,after going to the Second World,Anakin also tries to protect the city from the Narzgh.He meets Padme again,and she tries to act quite awkward towards him(though secretly she still loves him).Later they cooperate in order to protect the city,and he also tries to protect her.But there is something more,because Palpatine(who managed to stay in the Second World) is also in game again,and this time he plans to do something much more horrible than taking over the galaxy.Anakin,Padme,and their friends(mainly OCs) have to find out and stop him.And it's the same that if they die,Padme goes to so-called heaven,and Anakin goes to hell.
But after all,the story has a happy ending,the barrier in the city is rebuilt so now it's safer,Ani and Pad end up together,and Palpatine is destroyed.Futhermore,Anakin did attone his bad things as Vader,and if he and Padme die,they both go to the First World.
I can give you a link to it if you like.

Would it be odd for me to say that this reminds me of my girlfriend and me? I'm such a mess of a person (trying to be better, but not always succeeding), always screwing up and learning things the hard way. She is such a beautiful light, compassionate and beautiful, and I absolutely don't deserve her. Your picture literally made me freeze in place and just stare, with images of her shining God's light in my darkness and fire. Thank you. You've helped make me appreciate her all over again ^_^

Might even care for me...
