((There's a part of me that's starting to wonder if you made Akasha just so you'd have a justifiable reason for your characters to survive scenes like this, and therefore you'd be able to put them through the grinder again, and again, and again... because you care, of course.))
Woah! I did a sketch with the the exact (well aaaalmost) poses and scene! That`s kind of freaky. Love this one though. Don`t know the story but it`s full of emotion. Like it! And love your drawingstyle. Good job! *browse gallery*
Was this right after Nyo stabbed a spear thing into Ryuu's chest? Can't believe he's crying about it now. And Ryuu looks like he forgives him. O.o I have a feeling it goes much deeper than that but I'm not gonna say anything.
Pretty awesome pic. For a minute it thought either it was Old Snake from MGS4 or Kakashi from Naruto, but after seeing the website I can see where the influence for Nyuu came from. The story seems to be interesting and the characters there are pretty cool and original. I wish you both the best of luck.
What I don't understand about your art is why you keep drawing Nyo being so... physically close to Ryuu like that. Almost every time I see them together, for some reason, Nyo likes to hug Ryuu and latch onto him and be all up and personal with him and stuff. And it's usually Nyo who does it to Ryuu and not the other way around either.
You have convinced me that the subtext tells the truth and Nyo somehow has some sort of crush on Ryuu. You have convinced me! >8( You will not fool me, woman!! Either Nyo has some kind of mancrush on Ryuu or you draw him like that to TEASE YOUR YAOI FANGIRLS (especially me). No longer will I submit to those "They're just friends, it's completely normal for them to do that" and "Nyo doesn't really understand what personal space is" excuses! Excuses! Excuses! You're just trying to hide some sort of spoiler that Nyo confesses his love for Ryuu in the story, aren't you?! Well, I won't be fuuled! I'm onto you!
... okay, okay, I'll stop. (I still think it's that though.)
Hmm, I really thought it was Kakashi ^^ ! First, I only saw the thumbnail and was interested, it looked good. Then, in the big version I thought it was Kakashi and read your description. Unfortunately, I don't know the original story you took them from But it's really extraordinary nice!!! So smooth and glowing!
Looking at this picture and then looking at the edit on your description just made me grin my face off. XD 'Cause it made me think of the first few commenter going: 'O_O KAKASHIIIIII!!' or something like that. XD Lol!
