KHInsider has something unique and special to share with the KINGDOM HEARTS community.

Even though our bingo didn't successfully achieve a five in a row/column, we wanted to share this in good spirit for the amazing news that were announced at E3 for KINGDOM HEARTS HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue. KHInsider staff member Zephyr drew a beautiful illustration for us as well as a special message below.

 

"On behalf of the KHInsider staff, I’d like to commemorate and extend our heartfelt thanks for the KINGDOM HEARTS series, our shared beloved experiences with the community, as well as the ongoing support for KHInsider! The anticipated journey for KINGDOM HEARTS HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue and KINGDOM HEARTS III is sure to be worth the wait! Because we’ve been through the series together for quite a long time, it’s like we’re close friends. This community has one of the most passionate fans I’ve ever seen including myself (laughs). KINGDOM HEARTS is definitely one of those series that hits you right in the heart. As a huge thank you, I’ve drawn a very beautiful illustration for everyone! I’ve tried my best to produce artwork as faithful to the style of Tetsuya Nomura’s illustrations. I hope everyone, including the KINGDOM HEARTS team, will love it.”

- KHInsider Staff, Zephyr

Zephyr, your art is amazing!

I've been more of lurker than a poster on this forum for about 7 years, (good God, has it really been that long?), but I just want to thank you all for all that you have done for this place over the years. You all have done a fantastic job of making this place an amazing resource for KH fans!

Thank you so much Blue Firework! We'll do the best we can to deliver news. We've been through this series together for a pretty long time…

Awesome work, Zephyr! As a person who's seen (and made) a lot of fanart, yours always stands out.

Thanks to the KHI-staff for the E3 coverage as well, you too did an amazing job this year!

Wow, this is an amazing piece of work. If someone were to have told me this was official artwork, I would believe them. You really captured Nomura's style with this.

My friends told me the same thing haha. "If I didn't know any better, this seriously looks like official artwork."

Aww, this is amazing, Zephyr! Thank you so much for taking the time to make it, and to post it even though we didn't get a Bingo:)

This is just so lovely, and I'm pretty sure I know what I'm using as my desktop background now!

What an amazing site we have here^^ And I'm sure the development team will absolutely love this.

Your words about this franchise were really sweet, too, and reminded me of something Nomura would say, even! It was the "laughs" part that got to me. Haha.

If the series is ever handed to Tai Yasue (or if Nomura decides he wants two co-directors), I think your calling would probably be to be his co-director. LOL.

Kidding. Kidding. I wouldn't want Nomura to leave (though if he decided he wanted two co-directors that would work out for everyone, right? Right?), but you really do feel like SE staff and this looks like official artwork, so I just thought you should know how legit you seem. LOL.

Once again, I thank you for this (I thank all of the amazing KHI staff for their coverage this year, as always), and I totally think that we should be making YOU guys presents next time for always being so awesome to us and so very dedicated. I love you guys.
