Yearning Love by Anilede Yearning Love by Anilede
'It had been so long since Yldae last spoke to her dear friend...she missed him dearly. And yet, she could not see him. Not after she yelled at him, mistakenly taking her anger about her sister on him. When she accused him of not knowing what it was like to have family disappoint you--and the hurt look in his golden eyes--she didn't know what to say if he ever approached her. But his deep, yet gentle voice, despite only being outside of his class, still sent shivers down her spine. She held her hand over her chest as if to quiet the loud beating of her heart. If only he knew how she loved him.'

Edit: Made a change to the magic around Faheem to make it flow better.

This painting was a long time coming orz. I first sketched it in September, and began painting in early October!! All in all it took over 3 months to finish this. It was very time consuming and time isn't a thing I have much of nowadays. I can only get painting done if I stay up past midnight. ^^;

Anyway, this rendition of Faheem and Yldae takes place when they're both around 39 years old at a certain point during "A Remedy for Madness". When they set out to visit Ylith at her home and discover she's pregnant again, Yldae becomes angry and yells at Faheem when he attempts to calm everyone. Sadly, he leaves right away, feeling hurt at what was said. ;A; For a while Yldae avoided Faheem because she was ashamed of herself. Whenever she could, she would stand outside his classroom just to hear his voice. Here, she's listening to him while he teaches about the flow of magic. Eventually she gets the chance to apologize and Faheem had already forgiven her. :heart:

I didn't get the chance to comment before, but you have no idea how much I love this piece! Seeing how progress was made on this was amazing, and your art is always so inspiring ;v; The story behind this is so sad but amg am I happy he forgives her <33

But seriously, this painting is gorgeous. All the little details and all the work and effort you put into this, even on Faheem although he isn't in the foreground is simply amazing. And that background is stunning! Wonderful work, friend <33

Aww this is such a bittersweet image</3  Yldae's unconditional love for Faheem throughout the years has always been so touching to me, and seeing how much hurting him eats away at her is sooo sad! :iconcryforeverplz: But I'm SOOO happy she gets to apologize and Faheem forgives herrrrr!:heart::heart::heart: 

This is a beautiful image Anilede! I know it took you a long time to work on it, but all your effort really shows! The composition of the scene is lovely, and your pieces are always so deeply  detailed. I love how you've painted the stone walls especially; the twili markings on them is a wonderful touch!:heart: Also gotta say the dress Yldae is wearing is just gorgouuuuuus!

These two really have a strong relationship that happened naturally as we developed the story :love: It's really amazing just how perfect they are for each other! It just takes a while for Faheem to realize he loves her, after so many years ;v;

Thank you so much!! :aww: It really means so much to hear such kind words. I put a lot of time into this and I'm really happy with the final result! :heart::heart:
