"Bound by the chains of what you know, what you were taught, how can you break free? Blinded from the truth of the world, how can face it when you finally realize what you were taught was all a lie?"
I really wanted to do a picture of Ghetsis and N dripping with symbolism! I'm really happy with it.
But Ghetsis' robe pattern is stupidish. The battlements on his robe are even stupider. It's like a love-hate relationship. I hate drawing them, but love how they turn out.
I guess I should explain some things to make it a little more clear. I've always been fascinated with the way Ghetsis manipulated N, shaping him and his views into what they were in BW. He blinds N from the reality that most Pokémon are treated well, and as a result, N only knew the pain those few unfortunate Pokémon suffered.
He only knew the pain in his heart and the tears he cried from seeing their pain. Bound to what he had been taught as a young child, when he finally realized it wasn't true, it took him a long time to admit it and stop being in denial.
EDIT: I forgot to mention this earlier, but for those of you who don't know sign language that well or at all, (like me) N is using his right hand to make the sign for "N" in sign language.
