I do love thee so by FugueState I do love thee so by FugueState

For the story "Futility" by ~peahopeless.

"The student will learn but one lesson from me," he snarled. "And it shall be
his last. ... Simple plain Clarence, I do love thee so, that I will shortly
send thy soul to heaven."1

And on the last word, gloved fingers tightened, digging into Prichardson's
throat."


1. Gloucester, Richard III

Woah! V looks quite vengeful! I wouldn't get on his bad side.
Nicely done!

The movements (not shore that's the word but) are awesome!!!
Love V's hair :D My first thought was that V was bit scary, smiling while killing someone, and then I remembered that is how his mask looks like;P My brain is a little bit slow today...It's awesome anyway :w00t:

First reaction: It's professional. Literally the quality of professional publication.

The face on Clarence is amazing. Very expressive and very life-like, just like the boy in the car was. Also the detail on V's arm, and the ability to handle the water in the scene ... that is, the water on V, the splashing, and even just the surface of the water.

It's also one of those rare pictures where It's scary. V actually scares me a little, just from the pic. It was the same way with the pic where he was holding Bobby by the throat. 'Bettering the lesson', I believe it was(?). For me, it's the look on the guy's face, the strength in V's arm, and the ironic (made menacing in the situation?) smile on the mask, that go together to make it seem so scary. To me, at least. :)

I'm glad the emotion comes across - this one's process was an interesting departure.

(and it was "...instruction")

The emotions in this picture combined with the text are fascinating. The person underwater is very well-drawn and you achieved showing the wetness of V's hair. Another fav.
