Quite amazing quality here. The background matches well with Simon.

In the crippled world of Ooo

A ruler did appear

Cursed with a secret power so great

Alone he stayed in fear.


Although the force was hidden

One day he let it go

And all his land was covered

In eternal ice and snow.

Wish I could take full credit, but it's based off the trailer for Frozen.

Oh wow. Before I opened the pic I thought "shouldn't the title be The fall of Simon?". Great art dude! AT is awesome and this brings back a lot of memories.

In the years that followed Simon faced the new born terror of Ooo. Only the crown could save Marcy and it gave him much, but took more...

One has to wonder how it happened. If Simon Petrikov slipped away or simply snapped and embraced the power the crown offered him.

It amazes me that in one video, spanning less than two minutes, this guy went from being one of the most obnoxious, semi-threatening characters to one of the most sympathetic, noble characters I've ever seen.


I quite like your style, particularly the hair and teeth.

This is pretty much the first and only realistic drawing of the ice king I ever really liked. To me, he wouldn't look like an old magician, more like an adventurer that somehow started transforming into an old man. So yeah, this is pretty awesome :)

ever since i've seen "I Remember You" you see the reason behind every time Ice King says how no one will love him, or how he'll be alone, or how he wants a princess. deep down he's just a lonely guy in search for someone to stand by his side in an eternity of love and trust. great job on this by the way! i love the emotion! ^^
