Why does he have that lecherous look on his face? (WARNING - Yaoi)

As for the title... that is what my husband asked when he first saw the picture while I was working on it. These are two characters, one belonging to me and the other to a friend (drawn with permission). They're both men and you can take guesses as to which one is a cleric and of what faith! *GRIN* Not too bishy, but I think they're scrumptious! I'm very happy with how this turned out. Manga is not at all my usual style and I think I've made a good showing with this piece. The colouring is not entirely anime style, but I just can't seem to get away from realistic tones and shading. However, I've seen other artists around the 'wood with the same style, so I know I'm not alone in this semi-realistic manga style. This picture began (horribly enough) as a rough pencil sketch on Saturday night (March 8, 2003 - Our first wedding anniversary!) on a piece of GRAPH PAPER of all ^$(#@*$ things. Well, that's what I had within reach when inspiration struck. Sunday I traced and scanned it then began the colouring process in Photoshop 7... with my brand new Wacom tablet!!!! Woo hoo! Four days and many consultations with the other player later and it's finished! I will say that the short fellow there started out wearing a hat... and sadly looked too much like Michael Jackson... *shudder* Look! No hat! Another favourite pastime also contributed to this picture: the background is a photo taken last summer at one of the Renaissance festivals hubby and I attended. I took him to his first one last spring and he's hooked! Mwuahahahaha! I can't say if I should have credit for the picture or him since we passed the camera back and forth all day. I gave it a radial blur and the watercolour artistic filter to increase the focus upon the two characters... going for a sense of the world just melting away.
