First Impressions by AlaskaDrawing First Impressions by AlaskaDrawing
Hehehheheh Mow and I are having a lot of fun roleplaying these two ; )

I am loving these guys together, at this point their relationship is completely hate filled and wonderful, but after a few months it'll likely grow into something more. For nOw, I wanted to depict their first meeting, in which Harlequin promptly tossed a sharp sword at Oceana's face. That sure made a beautiful first impression! 

THE SCENE
_____________________________

ALASKA

Harlequin found himself at least slightly contented that she smiled back, although he still felt it was a polite formality, certainly nothing that meant she was actually affected by his side comments. Not that he had brought out the big guns when flirting, though, simply complimenting a woman wouldn't do it. Not all the time at least. For a Whisperling he'd certainly expect it to be harder to woo them, after all, they were always faking things, so they knew the classic lines. Most of the time, with him, the mix of good looks, confidence, compliments, and sarcasm got him company most nights. Which was tough, because he'd have to go without that for a bit until the mission was completed, unless he did manage to flirt his way into this Oceana's heart. He doubted it, gross Whisperlings were always the ruiners of the party, but maybee. He certainly believed the stereotypes after all, those told the truth from what he had seen of the Order so far.

He walked up the stairs, spiraling to the upper floors, and frankly it took less effort than flying from landing to landing. As he headed to the training rooms paired with weapon storage, Quin snorted at her comment, about to share his feelings on the Order clearly, until he decided it wouldn't be best if he wanted to reach his goal, or keep the dragon on his good side. A shame. He had a lot to say about the Whisperlings. At the very least, he could complaint about a certain, leprechaun level, dragon who just happened to be in the same order as Oceana," Yes. A, quite frankly, small bastard that will drive anyone insane." He left out the fact he did respect the little man, a little bit, after having dealt with a previous mission, and didn't hate him as much as he did originally.

He quickly bounded up the other stairs before throwing open the doors of the first training room. There were a few dragons in there, but they seemed preoccupied by the duels at hand. He paused, giving a particularly large hybrid a thumbs up before inclining his head to large opening to another room. Likely what would be the area for the weapons. Walking in he seemed to immediately gain a glint in his eyes. In jest, he grabbed the largest broadsword he could find from off the rack and literally threw it at her planning on her either failing miserably, or making it only to be brought down by its weight. In any case, he was sure he was going to laugh about the results. In the meantime, he'd search for smaller daggers and interesting killing contraptions that would be perfect for a spying mission.

MOW AKA BOW

Oceana listened to him as she waited for the hybrid at the top of the staircase, taking a few steps back to give him some space. She couldn’t help but scoff at his words about a certain Whisperling, already guessing who he was speaking about. A small, male dragon who drove dragons insane? Well, there was really only one dragon who came to mind. Although Oceana herself never spent time speaking to him-why would she? She heard rumors, and those were enough to tell her to keep her distance. At least this Shieldite could confirm her suspicions now.

Oceana followed him to the training rooms, staying about half a tail length away. For a moment, she allowed her gaze to settle on the dueling Shieldites, watching their battle style, which spots they left vulnerable, etc. From the few moments she watched them in battle she could already notice a drastic difference in their fighting styles. Whisperlings were quick-mainly reliant on agility and stealth when they fought. Shieldites, however, seemed more about strength than the element of surprise. Her gaze switched back to Harlequin as he moved towards another room, where she followed, taking one last glance at the handsome fighters, before heading after the hybrid.

Oceana followed him towards the room he was leading her towards, completely unprepared for what was about to happen. At first, when he turned around, she assumed he would be asking a question, maybe making some flirty remark. Something normal. However, she was so, so wrong. For a moment, she seemed to freeze up when he threw the sword, not moving a muscle and just letting it happen. But then, her 2 years of Alliance training kicked in. Though she wasn’t as fast as Harlequin was at throwing it, she managed to quickly roll out of the way of the sword, the blade simply grazing her shoulder before it toppled onto the ground. Now, it wasn’t anything that penetrated scales, nor did it hurt very much, but it could’ve. Her eyes flashed with anger when she stood up again, wings flared out and her teeth bared. “What the hell is wrong with you? Treating these weapons like toys? Throwing them at dragons just to get a laugh? Are you insane?” She couldn’t believe this dragon! Here, when she was about to give this sick creep the benefit of the doubt. And now he was just, what, throwing weapons at her?! Her tail lashed back and fourth while her eyes had narrowed to slits, blazing with anger.

As for the drawing itself, it took a lot of time, but I am extremely pleased with the results! The shading, details, everything worked out in the end. And I'll probably submit this into a few contests as well! I'm hoping to use this style of lineless for some Christmas gifts in the future, look out for that! 

Thanks ya'll, hope you like it!
