There's something like this special kind of love and fascination shared with closest friends.

[ORIGINAL PICTURE]
Godchild (c) art & story by Kaori Yuki. Coloured in Photoshop, but I'm unable to count the hours I spent over it :P. First I coloured both Cain's and Riff's skins, next Cain's hair and then nothing for a long, long time, all this for me to return to it and finally finish it in something like... 3 hours?

Hope you'll like it. All comments apprieciated :)

Wow. That looks awesome...but also...really scary. With Cain's eyes... 0.0
But amazing coloring! :)

Yeah, i love her art. It's so...beautiful and elegant. I wish i could draw like her. But i really like the clothes she does. They have so much detail. But you colored it perfectly, in my opinion.

Thanks again :). And yeah, the detalism that can be noticed in Kaori's work is definitely one of the most characteristic feature of her works.

Well...I don't much like Riff's skin (I mean,I always though that he has very light skin...but never mind. I love it.

You know, that idea crossed my mind... and at the beginning Riff's skin was much lighter than in the end ;). Somehow it made too much contrast to me. This picture is already a little misfit because of the vast use of red and blue colour at once. I didn't want to make it too gaudy, one contrast is enough (at least I think so).

But still, you're right, Riff's rather pale ;).

Mam nadzieję, że nie wyjdę na heretyka, ale czy te uczucia nie ocierają się również o zafascynowanie fizyczne? To sugerowałoby ich spojrzenie - przynajmniej w sytuacji, którą przedstawiłaś na swoim dziele. Wybacz ignorancję, nie znam oryginału!

Great coloring! It might have been a very hard work, but it does worth the time wasted.

Very cool:D! I've got a question for you. Do you do mechanical drawings as well? Because I need an illustrator for my story. See the link in my signature.

Thanks :) And yes, I do mechanical drawings, but I'm afraid I can't become your illustrator right now. But I wish you good luck in searching for one :)
