Queen Nadeshiko and her Knight, Li Ryuuren.
This is a picture of Sakura's mother, Amamiya Nadeshiko from Card Captor Sakura (and Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle). She is with my original character, Li Ryuuren, Syaoran's father. I drew this more painting-like than my usual style. It's another one of my older fanarts, and started out as a one-layer doodle, but I really like the way Ryuuren turned out, which is rare. He has long hair in this picture, which also is pretty rare.
I envision this can either a painting of artist Shing's "Warrior and Angel" series. It can also be an appearance in Chapter 61: Fantasia in Memoriam of my fanfic "The New Trials of Card Captor Sakura." wishluv.revolutionhosting.net/…
Chapter 61: Fantasia in Memoriam
Nadeshiko’s long violet hair was unbound. It blew back gently in the wind like billowy purple clouds. Ryuuren sat down next to her on the golden grass. The watched over little hill over looking the pastures and woods in silence. Only the farthest edges had begun to decay.
“Do you think they went back safely?” Nadeshiko asked without looking up.
“Yes, I’m sure,” replied Ryuuren, closing his blue eyes.
“Syaoran-kun has grown up to be a very dependable young man,” said Nadeshiko, twirling her finger in the grass. “Much more trustworthy than his father, I say.”
“I don’t think Sakura is half as clumsy and spacey as you are but definitely just as stubborn.”
“If it’s the two of them, I think they’ll manage.” Nadeshiko smiled. “No, I’m sure everything will be all right for them.”
Ryuuren smiled softly, turning to glance at Nadeshiko. “I believe so too.” He held out a hand. “Now, shall we return, my dear queen?”
“Yes, my noble knight.” Nadeshiko took Ryuuren’s hands.
Together, they ran down the hill and jumped into a prism-colored entrance. The queen and her knight disappeared from the kingdom as if they had never been there in the first place. Where did they disappear to? Some stories say that they ran off together and lived a quiet, humble life away from the public eye. Other stories say they ceased to be, dying in each others’ sweet embrace. Other stories still say that they parted ways after they entered through a magical doorway to another world. Who knows which story is true?
