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

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.

TELL ME ABOUT YOUR DAYS. TELL ME ABOUT YESTERDAY. TELL ME ABOUT LAST WEEK. I DON'T CARE, JUST TALK AT ME, PEOPLE. I LOVE YOU, 'KAY? ♥

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.
