O hai!
Excuse DECADES LONG posting-absence (and by decades, I mean nearly four months. DECADES).

1. It is summer!
2. and I am back from uni!
3. =DDDD

Because I'm having an insanely creative week (WHY IS THIS?), but also mostly because there's no real point to this post otherwise, you get art today! I don't do art, as a rule, so this is fairly novel. But I've been working for-real on my constant WIP (the four-book series I've been planning since I was twelve) and I needed something to look at, so this is Leon and Cevair from the first book/prequel ('The Stained Glass Window Sequence').

I promise I'm better at writing than I am at drawing T__T.

leon & cevair


Featuring inexplicably-topless!Leon, ahaha. That's kind of out of character XD. I know Cevair's shoulders are HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, but I drew this at like 3am and inked it early this morning before I was awake enough to KNOW ANY BETTER, so... she is narrow-shouldered, okay?! It's a tragic condition! As are her freckles. I don't know why I thought that was a good idea.

Quality is horrible as I don't have a scanner and just stood over and photographed it. Please can artistic people on my f-list tell me what human beings are supposed to look like? Apparently I don't know. And if someone wants to draw in some shoulders, DO IT. UGH, SHOULDERS, WHAT IS THE POINT.

I definitely prefer photograph to scan in this case. I think it shades it better where it sets to mood so soft and intimately. also I think you did a wonderfullllll job coloring it regardless. both hair parts are so lovely, and both sets of shoulders are so GUH. I am a really big fan of where you ended your lines, too. the shading on the girl's eyes is so lovely and perfect, and damn i love this! also, HIS THROAT :D:D:D

and hehe, the nose. hannah addressed this and that's good because i am suck for them too. like i start crying when i have to do them because they are never GOOD ENOUGH, and this nose is good i think though, i mean for not very detailed? because at first glance, I didn't notice anything, but then I look at it more and like the nostrils bother me a little but I seriously have no room at all in my life to talk because I definitely skip noses.

in conclusion, I REALLY love your lines. and this whole thing is just so beautiful.

also please remember me or I feel rude. i have been on two other journals, rubber_glove and capcha :3

asbdahbd THANK YOU ♥ And you picked the bits I liked, too (the hair and his throat... which are strange things to like, taken out of context, unless you are a serial murderer. Which I am... not) even though the proportions are off XD. So wheee, thank you <3.

I AM THE SAME. NOSES, HOW I HATE THEE. And I think you're right over the nostrils, the more I look at them, but my thought process was kind of like 'LET'S JUST NOT LOOK AT THIIIS TOO LONG' (I carefully hid Leon's behind her hair... ahaha. A masterpiece of positioning there XD). But then I don't know if that's just cause there needs to be more shadow underneath the curve of her nose, and if the nostrils would be okay otherwise? Gah.

OF COURSE I REMEMBER YOU, BY THE WAY. --And I am the rude one, because I think you commented on my journal way back when I last posted on LJ, and then I vanished from the internet without saying 'AHH KATIE, OF COURSE', and I only realised I'd done this and added you back yesterday T__T. I think I had you on both your old journals but then I didn't know you'd changed and it was all very tragic, if by tragic you mean 'me being inept'. So yes, I'm sorry. I HAVE ADDED YOU BACK NOW. WE WILL NEVER BE PARTED AGAIN XD.
