Liberty - Let Freedom Ring by ah-kaziya Liberty - Let Freedom Ring by ah-kaziya
Ok, first off, this was originally intended to celebrate the American Independence Day, but while I got it drawn and scanned before July 4th, I didn't get to finish coloring it until now. I partially blame Anime Expo, but hey, I wanted to go. ^_^

It's Liberty, as in the Statue of Liberty (yes, I be American), holding the Title of Liberty mentioned in Mormon scripture (yes, I be Mormon). For those who don't know what the Title of Liberty is, here's the explanation:

Captain Moroni, leader of the Nephite armies, tore his cloak and wrote upon it words to remind his people what they were fighting for, what they were defending. He put the rent piece of his coat on a pole and raised it to rally his people against an evil man who was conspiring to be king. The words on the banner were these: "In memory of our God, our religion, and freedom, and our peace, our wives, and our children."

I thought it fitting to draw Liberty holding the Title of Liberty. ^_^;

The text on the banner itself is the words quoted above and in English on the picture. I merely typed them in a font that I thought looked like ancient writing.

I like how the sky and the rock came out, as well as Liberty herself, but I don't like the water. ::kicks the water:: I need to study more water pictures.

Anyway, happy belated-or-not Independence Day to anyone who celebrates it! And anyone who doesn't, for that matter. ^_^

And any flames I get for this (though I don't see why I'd get any) will be used to roast marshmallows.

TD: mechanical pencil on sketch paper, PSP7 and mouse.

EDIT: Just updating the image from .png to .jpg.

I didn't realize for a second there that what I was reading was from the Book of Mormon, then I'm like "Heck yes!" I love it! Great job!

Thanks! If you ask me, it just fits so well either way. Now I just need to take the time one of these days to redo this piece but better. :D

And thus, Captain Moroni took his army forth to sell his mini Titles of Liberty at every corner store in the land Desolation.

Excellent job with the color scheme!
