Angel in despair by Callyste Angel in despair by Callyste
Kate Marsh, from Life is Strange, and 5th entry in my LiS character portrait series.
Even angels need angels... what's more to say?

I had intended at first to picture Kate under the rain, on the roof. But not only did I have no idea how to correctly shade light with a rainy ambiance, the background would have been tame. So instead, I opted for the sunny mood of Episode 1... with a subtle hint at the future in the background.
Again, took a bazillion of screenshots as reference. Kate's facial features seem simple enough, but for some reason it was hard to make it right.

Drawn using Cintiq 13HD with Photoshop CC.

"Even angels need angels". I instantly remembered of this quote when I looked at your drawing. Too much of coincidence? :o (Eek) 

Amazing drawing!

I had played this game twice (before episode 4 and 5 ) and had saved Kate both times. On my third play through i didn't answer Kate's call  and she died. i restarted the level 3 time to make sure i didn't say the wrong things, then reality set in and i knew it was useless, i had to let her die. and for the first time I cried , I cried because I knew I let her die I cried because I finally understood how important my choices really were.
I'm sorry Kate

I managed to save her on my first try. However, I did go and watched the other ending for this episode, and it was still quite a shock, even knowing that in my "timeline" she was safe and sound.
