"I know my mind is changing... but I'm already far too gone to know what to do. I want people to know that... if I do things that... if I do things that hurt anyone, please, please forgive me.

Just watch over me until I can find my way out of this labyrinth in my brain and regain my sanity. And then maybe Betty, my princess... maybe you will love me again. Please love me again, Betty!"

--Simon Petrikov a.k.a. The Ice King

The Ice King has got to be one of the characters I've seen with the saddest backstory ever. It was so painful to watch his loss, even if this is only a cartoon ):

I had to guess Betty's bottom half, since she was only shown in pictures. I really enjoyed making this :D
I originally planned to make the Ice King and practice my digital coloring. But I was watching Adventure Time then I was reminded of his backstory so instead, I made Simon Petrikov, his former self. I like how the colors came out, especially the shading ^_^ And I finally got the hang of making that drop shadow effect :P

I was supposed to give Betty something to sit on, but meh, I was too lazy, LOL.

Art (c) ME :D

Now I can't help thinking...what if the Ice King caused Ooo's creation? It would explain where all of the humans went,and how The candy people, Rainicorns, etcetera came to be. I can imagine the fanfictions now. *shudders* what have I done?
