Heart's Desire by Karzahnii Heart's Desire by Karzahnii
Late for Valentine's Day!

This is the finished comic from the sketches I posted back in December. The actual drawing took only around a week, but it took a lot more editing - there are numerous endings I didn't use, but I won't bring them up (they weren't used for a reason). I ended up deciding on one that stuck the most to the original theme and made sense. There are probably some continuity errors, or even debate as to whether the Heart's Desire works like that; I'm aware, but just enjoy it for what it is. How about that? :)

The Little Prince and Up were my main inspirations.

EDIT 1: In just a day, this hit my most viewed, commented, and favourited piece. Thank you for amazing feedback! I'm glad it touched so many people. Also, I have reuploaded it with very slightly altered to text to hopefully avoid a bit of confusion it caused earlier.

EDIT 2: Interested in seeing how this was made? [link]

Hey I just wanted to comment to tell you that the comic you drew had a life changing effect on my life.

You see I found this comic while browsing the image gallery of KnowYourMeme during my freshman year of high school. When I stumbled across this comic I visited the page and as I started reading "River Flows In You" started playing. Needless to say the combination brought tears to my eyes. I scrolled down to see that someone had posted an auto play YouTube link to this beautiful melancholy piece I had just now heard. The comic already was profound but the added music is what really touched something deep down in  me.

After reading through it several more times with the music and trying hard to compose myself I decided then and there that I would learn this piece of music before I died. Well lo and behold that very night I found a copy of the sheet music and downloaded it. The next day I dusted off my old keyboard which I had stopped using four years ago when I decided I didn't really like playing piano in elementary. I practiced hours every night and at the end of two weeks I had the piece memorized despite my rusty piano skills.

In that moment I had accomplished something off my bucket list and rekindled my love of piano. Now here we are 2014 and I'm getting ready to perform Chopin and Debussy in a state contest, I'm writing my own piano music, and I'm the keyboardist in my schools jazz band.

Look I was just writing a college essay and the prompt asked me about a defining moment in my life and this sprung to my mind and I realized I never thanked you for drawing this comic because if it wasn't for you creating this art I the series of events that got me here today probably would have never occurred.

Genius short storytelling right there. I've favourited this comic years ago, and yet, I still find myself coming back to it. What an absolutely beautiful yet melancholy piece.
