Don't they look really cute? Besides, its better to love each other than to fight each other. The guy wouldn't stand a chance anyway :)

Nice job and fine details. If you think about coloring your work you may want to check out Stephanie Pui Mun Law's gallery or webpage.

Since you complained about not having comments here on your ET page, I thought i'd come and re-share my total awe of this image. I love the emotion you can jsut feel between the two lovers. Wonderful Job!

Me again! 12 Regarding tablet, I think WACOM has the best tablets, but they are expensive. It is important to have a tablet that is large enough. I guess A4 size is to recommend, otherwise you will have problems with getting into details when illustrating (Unfortunately, A4 size is expensive). I bought an A4 size tablet (TRUST, not Wacom) to a very low price ($100), and it works alright. (But I almost never use it, since I don't like working digitally.) You could try to get a tablet thru second hand, if too expensive. Most people recommend Wacom. It is possible that I will sell my tablet, too.

Now I’m back with the sacred knowledge of how to comment properly and tag drawings 2
This is the best drawing in your gallery, the amount of emotions that comes out through your characters is immense! Your pencil technique looks professional enough, many years of practice I assume, or maybe a natural talent. I don’t know, but that doesn’t change the fact that this drawing is breath taking 2 I love the contrast differences between the somewhat “clean” and minimalistic faces and bodies, comparing to the very realistic feel of the clothes and armor. Wow!

:-) Sky van N replies: "thnx 2 yes I wish my colored pictures were up to my pencil level but oh well, practise makes the master 1 I’m glad you like this one"
