//Mod T here! The ECHO project, while long and arduous, was definitely a ton of fun! I made some wonderful friends and really had an amazing time contributing to this beautiful piece.
Now, of course, I went a little crazy and made many, many poses–so many, in fact, that not all of them made it in! Here is the full list of poses that were created, some of which made it into the video.
I owe a very, very big thank you to two people–first, @myebi for working with me to line every single pose you see here (ah, the woe of being a traditional artist), and @namelessokami for putting up with me for ages and ages and lining those hands sweet jesus you beautiful being helping me with the initial colors as well as providing me with undying support with every single multi-faceted and hard-to-manage part of this many-layered piece. Seriously, friend??? THANK YOU??? Couldn’t have done this without you.
Also, a special thank-you goes to @techcat for being so gosh-darn amazing and putting this together!!!
ALSO, ANOTHER ROUND OF THANK-YOU’S TO MY WAIFU, @myebi, FOR COLLABORATING WITH ME ON THIS BEAUTIFUL PART OF THE CREDITS:

The idea behind Gaster and Aster’s outfit was to mirror the necklaces they wear as a sign of their love. Aster’s colors were reflective of Gaster’s crystal necklace, whereas Gaster wears the bright and bombastic colors of the sun necklace around Aster’s neck. Once again, thank you to all who helped me, and congrats to everyone who worked on this beautiful project!

It’s difficult to describe how he felt as he holds baby Sarah in his arms –– his heart stops beating just short of being handed the little pink bundle. The closest he can relate the feeling to is being shot at by a group of inner city Triad members, only instead of fear fuelling his adrenaline, it’s a combination of excitement and AWE (and maybe a little fear ). He’s held children in the past, but this time is different; with this one it feels like one awkward position could be the end of her, so he gingerly accepts the bundle, the gentlest he’s ever been with anyone, and rests her in the crook of his arm. Sleepy eyes peer up at him, blue as the sky she has yet to see. The hardened cop softens immediately as he falls in LOVE for the second time in his life.
Things are different now. He isn’t the same person he was ten years ago and he won’t be the same person ten years into the future. There’s a crib in his house, a baby seat in his car, a wedding band on his ring finger, and a FAMILY to support. It’s a hell of a lot on his plate, but that’s exactly what he signed up for ––settling down. AND it was about time he did.
“Oh, look at her, Diane.” He says, as though the mother of his child hadn’t seen her own baby yet. “She’s so –– ”
