Wilson Kane from TPB webcomic [link] , here in moonlight Gaussian blur glory (XD), tempting his wife, just a little. Even at his sweetest I can't really imagine Mr. Pirate Perfect losing that certain edge and impishness :p . Hopefully his eyes and expression here are close enough to how Talia perceives them.

Seemigly cheesy title needs explanation XD.
1) He loves food. His lady loves food. One of the pillars of their symbiotic bond is sharing food. Preferably feeding each other. See here (uncanny timing ftw) : [link]
2) The circumstances of their meeting have been compared to Hades and Persephone's myth: [link] , with some healthy twists and snarkiness sprinkling :3.
The pomegranate in the pic is a nod to the myth, but also a delicious fruit still growing in the Mediterrenean area, or at least certain zones of it.
It was a childhood highlight whenever we went to the countryside in autumn. In South Italy you could find mushrooms and pomegranates,while in the North you could pick chestnuts as well :d

3) The webcomic chapter of TPB being presently released is titled 'Heaven&Hell' ;) .

The movement of hair gives a beautiful effect and this eyes seem to pierce us

Thank you. His hair is the drug I tell you XD
I was aiming for a piercing&alluring stare, glad to see it works ^^ .

*agrees with previous comment* this is hot indeed!!!! :love:
and he has such a gorgeous face without the mask!!! 8D
great colour choices, and I love that purple hint in the eye and pomegranate! (YUM!)

Hey :glomp: .
I'm not 100% happy with his jaw actually, but I think the eye is just like I envision it, very Kane XD. I was striving for maroon for the iris, but eh, tricky monitors. I'm sure it would look another colour on another PC XD. Anyway, it pops and that's what matters.
Pomegranate party, anyone? 8D

^-^ This is really good...and (this may sound odd) kinda hot!
Eli-ArsNexus's avatar
Thank you ^^.
Why odd? :D . He's supposed to be a very attractive man after all :eyes: , I hope I can convey at least a fraction of that. And I'm pretty sure he wouldn't mind the appreciation. He is the bragging type, you know :giggle:
