James Sunderland II by LMJWorks James Sunderland II by LMJWorks
He gets an empty background because...uh....HIS SOUL IS EMPTY! Or something. Actually, I couldn't think of anything, but I liked the last minute touch with the heart and infamous SH2 graffiti quote :)

If a hole in his heart is gone, isn't that a good thing? You should have made it a play on words, saying, "There was a WHOLE here...but now it's gone." =D

It's a direct quote from the game.
Sierie Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I realize that. -.-'

Wow this has an intense feeling to it... "I love Silent Hill 1-4 and all its heroes".. even James who was the only one who truly sinned to get there. (I have this weird (but to my happy malexmale brain absolutely perfect) idea of HarryxHenry :D)

After playing the game, looking at this picture, reading its comments, and listening to the chorus of "For Reasons Unknown", I'm feelin' so sad, sad for James right now.

Oh man, I just wanna give the poor guy a hug so much. I think I'm gonna go play the game again now...

No matter how many times I look at this I end up feeling drawn to James' character once more. There's such an emptiness, a darkness. It exposes and reminds us of just how empty James is. How disconnected he is from his self as shown by his actions through out Silent Hill 2.

You know, I've seen this image so many times, and it is such a beautiful piece, and yet I've never stopped and thought to comment and favorite it.

Gorgeous work; it's a really nice use of the famous quote, and oh, Jame's face... it's so sad and empty.

...I love it.

The holes gone?! Looks like he gets the bad ending.

With james in complete Noir-style with a red background and stitched-up heart, I think it just makes his anguished expression just that more intense to look at.
paralytic-blue Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2009
I love this! He's so sad... so very tragic.
krumbs Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2009
That poor sad man, I want to hug him. SH2 is my fav Silent Hill game hands down.

Fantastic work. O.O
berserk-sushi Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2007
I don't think I can accurately convey how well you captured the style/mood of James' character with the block shading you did on his face.

Fuckin' A. If you ever did an SH comic I'd snap it up like FUCKOFFIT'SMINE.

Also, you don't happen to have a superultragiga-hi-res version of this, wouldja?

This is amazing... I adore the vectorised look of this, and the heart and quote just fit.

Amazing, and well deserving of a favourite. :3

Nice use of the quote from within the store...can't remember what store it was in, but it was the store that housed the first map...

Nice job though....very neat trick there.

your black and white style of drawing some of your characters is awesome you should do more of those.

this is so sad and depressing (in a very good way.) i like how you keep things simple with plain background. it adds the drama.

I've always loved SH2 over all of the games, and when I hit this part in the game I kept wondering exactly what it meant. I enjoy how you used it though in this piece +fav
