Saya and Rufus are both characters of mine in a story I'm writing with several other amazingly talented authors, whose mad writing skills I worship. Both of them can be found in several places around my gallery, but this is their first picture together. Awww...how sweet. Aren't they cute together, what with Saya looking like she's planning something, and Rufus either blissfully unaware of it, or confident that he can handle it. Don't ask why, but somehow they work together...anyway, these two are fun to write, and I love them dearly. If you want to know more about them, just ask, or read the story which is avaliable -here-
Anyway, this is really old lineart that I decided to color for some reason. It has caused me no end of grief - first Rufus' neck was too long, then the lineart was too messy...and on and on and on. Now it's done and I don't like it. Saya's OK, I guess, but Rufus doesn't look quite right...the coloring is alright, I'm working on increasing contrast and darks and lights. :shrug: Check out the hard work I put into the background too - I spent hours on those clouds, I tell you...HOURS!! ;) Hopefully it looks like something other than blobs, but considering how much I didn't work on it, it really ~should~ just look like blobs. Bleh... Anyway...comments, suggestions, and whatnot welcome as always.
