Kesstober/Sketchtober Day 14: “Forgotten”
For those of you who actually read my descriptions then you might be able to tell what this is implying. If not I’ll explain. While Keith’s off with the Blade he begins to make reckless decisions without thinking of the consequences. For example the last episode of Season 5 (still hurts me inside). Slowly he goes days and days without thinking about Nessa once, and when he stops video-chatting with her she becomes worried. This quickly leads to her sudden isolation from the team, though it seems everyone is off in their own little worlds and start to forget about her as well. It hurts her and it doesn’t seem to get better until Season 7 after her death/revival in Season 6. By now everyone’s shaking themselves awake and seeing the truth of how weak their bonds have become since they had been away in their own worlds. #sketchtober2018#kesstober#vld#voltron#vldkessa#vldfanart#voltronfanart#vldfandom#voltronfandom#vldnessavarden#vldkeith#vldkeithkogane#voltronkeith#voltronkeithkogane#myart#pencil#pencildrawing
Kesstober/Sketchtober Day 9: “Je T’aime” “Please...don’t leave me...I’m so sorry.” Nessa sobbed, her shoulders shook as tears poured down her face.
I’m so sorry this is late! Yesterday was really long and I didn’t realize that I hadn’t started anything for my Sketchtober until around midnight’. Please forgive me!!! Anyway I think I should explain this one: This is actually a scene from my fanfic Crystal Rose during Season 2. Nessa and Keith are good friends at this point but before a mission things take a sour turn and they get in an argument. Well they end up being paired together to grab information from one of the bases and Keith gets hurt while protecting her. Nessa freaks out, to put it lightly. Keith wakes up mid-break down and confesses to her how he feels about their relationship. (Keefy’s got a crush~) Of course Nessa returns the feelings and they get back to the castle safely. #sketchtober2018#kesstober#vld#voltron#vldkessa#vldfanart#voltronfanart#vldfandom#voltronfandom#vldnessavarden#vldkeith#vldkeithkogane#voltronkeith#voltronkeithkogane#myart#pencil#pencildrawing
Kesstober/Sketchtober Day 5: “Wings”
This is an Au I created called Heart of Wings. Nessa has a heart condition, and if she’s not careful she could easily have a heart attack. She lives alone out on the country side a few miles away from the nearest town. Keith is an Avian and works in the town’s General store with his brother, Shiro, who happens to be the manager. Throughout the story Keith is being chased by these hunters who specialize in mythical creatures, so Keith is forced to hide his true form with a magical amulet. During one of these chases Keith is shot from the sky and crashes into Nessa’s barn. Ness tends to his wounds and hides Keith until he’s better. Keith realizes that Nessa’s condition is worse than it appears and he decides to move in to take care of her. #sketchtober2018#kesstober#vld#voltron#vldkessa#vldfanart#voltronfanart#vldfandom#voltronfandom#vldnessavarden#vldkeith#vldkeithkogane#voltronkeith#voltronkeithkogane#myart#pencil#pencildrawing
Enslaved: I’ve mentioned Nessa’s imprisonment before but I don’t think I shed enough light on it the anxiety it give her. In these two pictures it shows Nessa’s continual struggle to shake off what the Galra did to her after she was kidnapped from Kerberos. This first one shows a girl very alike to Nessa herself. This is Nyra, Nessa’s clone. At first Nyra was just a voice in Nessa’s mind constantly reminding her of her torture and scars, that was until Haggar turn her into something more. In a way I see them as yin and yang and that reflects with their powers. The second shows Haggar in the form of Honerva except with more of the witch’s physical attributes. Such as sharp nails/claws, glowing gold eyes, and her marking. (HER HAIR WAS SO DIFFICULT! I had to mix in so many different colors to get it right! Who knew how hard it was to make a grey blue like that?!)
Accused of the murders I did not commit: Nessa closed her eyes for a moment feeling the wind grow stronger, causing her dress to flutter as her long braided hair wiped against her cheek. A single tear slipped down her face. There was nothing she could do. When she opened her eyes again they locked with Keith’s. He stood in the front of the crowd at the base of the platform behind the line of guards, looking completely heartbroken. Without any hesitation she smiled. It wasn’t a sad smile but a happy one. She had done all she could, and if that wasn’t enough at least she would die knowing the royal family was safe. Nessa raised her head with pride looking straight at the king, showing him no fear. Yes, she was afraid of death, but she knew that something better was waiting for her on the other side, and one day, Keith would join her. Hopefully that day would not come soon.
This is going to the Altean Au I made a while back. Nessa, one of King Alfor’s most loyal servants and body guard of the royal children, was framed for three murders committed by a Galran Druid. The druid makes a deal with Nessa that if she lie to the court about her innocence he would not kill the Altean royals. In order to fulfill her duty Nessa agrees, and lies to the court, telling them that she did the crimes. The council decides her punishment. Death by fire.
“Why did you let him go?” “Because I love him.”
I kinda wanted to shed some light on Nessa and Keith’s relationship when he went off with the blade. I know I’ve included something like this in another post but just ignore that for rn. After Keith approached the team about him leaving and stuff the Paladins left him and Nessa to talk. She expresses that she had been waiting for a while now, knowing that he would eventually leave the team at some point. (She’s really good at reading emotions) She tells him that he fully supports his decision even when it was clear in her heart that she wanted him to stay. Nessa knew that she did the right thing and has never regretted her decision, not once. I love drawing flowers under the picture it really adds a certain mood to it. Yes, these are the flowers that grew back on Altea, I thought I’d try something a little different than earth flowers. Plus, I think it kind of applies to Allura in a way. Especially in the episode where she destroyed her father’s memories. #vld#vldfanart#vldkeith#vldkeithkogane#vldnessavarden#voltron#voltronoc#voltronkeith#voltronallura#voltrons4#myart#pencildrawing to #pen#fanart
Reaching an Understanding: This is the first moment that the other Paladins have met Nessa’s friends. During the time Nessa was in the Galra Prison, three disguised members of the Blade took care of her in secret whether that happened after an arena battle or after Haggar’s terrible experiments. They were the ones who helped her escape along with another Galran we’ve met, Maria. In this moment both Keith and Rolf (Galra holding Nessa) are realizing that they are both on the same side. As I said before the one holding Nessa is Rolf the leader of the group, Padwa is the female Galra and their weapon’s specialist. Jesse the young Galra is a Blade in training and mostly specializes in tech. #pencil#myart#vld#vldfanart#voltron#voltronfanart#voltrongalra#vldgalra#galra#voltronocs#vldocs#drawing#vldnessavarden#vldkeith#vldkeithkogane
“You sacrificed your own life to save ours. I am deeply grateful to you.”: This is right after Nessa is revived when Keith finally introduces her to Romelle. In this moment Nessa realizes how scary it was to actually die and Romelle is right there to comfort her. SPACE SISTERS! Nessa’s so lucky to have all of these amazing women on the team to be there for her. (I did a lot of experimenting with this. I’ve never drawn Romelle until now. Can’t say it’s my best work. Ignore the fail of her clothes) #vld#vldfanart#voltron#voltronfanart#voltronoc#vldromelle#vldnessavarden#myart#fanart
Friendship Board: I’d like to introduce my newest oc, Hana Shirogane. Obviously by the name that means she’s related to Shiro. I thought it was time to give Nessa an Earth bound best friend, Shiro’s baby sister! Shown by these pictures, these girlies are very close, like two peas in a pod! Hana is one of four ocs that I’ve actually drawn for Voltron! Now that I think about it these two are the only ocs I’ve drawn together with no other canon characters. 😅 #vld#voltron#voltronfanart#fanart#vldnessavarden#voltronoc#voltronocs#photoboothart#myart
“I made you a promise, & I don’t plan on breaking it anytime soon.” - Shiro: My babies are all grown up! So you guys probably don’t know this but when Nessa was about fifteen she became the youngest graduate at the Garrison, and was a pretty amazing feat. She went on to become a teacher for the Garrison which would look pretty weird if you were her student. For two years she was a teacher until she was asked to go on the Kerberos mission with Shiro and the Holts. Her family was so proud of her. But just like Adam, her eldest brother Nathaniel wasn’t too happy about it. He was afraid he would not only have lost their mother but his (only) baby sister. They got in a huge fight and ended up saying some stuff that they really didn’t mean. Nessa left for space broken hearted, wishing she had gotten the chance to talk to him. #vld#voltron#voltronfanart#fanart#vldnessavarden#voltronshiro#voltrongarrison#voltrongarrisonuniform#vldgarrison#vldoc#vldocs#myart#ocs#pencil#pencildrawing
Content & Cozy: The Galra getting on your nerves? Constant depression and anxiety? Well not anymore! Just bundle up in a cozy blanket and sleep the day away! (This message was brought to you by Keith and Lance’s forgotten bonding moment!) #vldnessavarden#vld#voltron#voltronfanart#myart
