Secret Santa gift to :iconshomia:

featuring her original chara Rephet, Dereniel, and Ceremei.

Since I spent quite a long ass time doing this...I shall babble on.

I like love triangles esp if it's the guy between guy and a girl (as stated in my journal) so I thought this would be fun :D Rephet (gray haired) seems to have a one-sided love toward Dereniel (blonde) because Dereniel accepts him. While Dereniel is Ceremei (red)'s bodyguard and Ceremei wants Dereniel to protect him even if he's not really good as one. A love triangle of some sort?? :D not really...T_T;;

But that's what I was going for anyways...

I wanted to attempt doing compositions like Matsuri Hino's artwork with close-shots as opposed to drawing chara at a distance (which I seemed to have a tendency to do now..) XD As for coloring I did all the shading on a separate layer set to multiply instead of applying individual color shades for each hue. It was still not easy than I thought T^T

I need to go back and study how to shade faces and body since I seemed to have a lot of trouble while working on this @A@;;;

Again, Happy Holidays everyone!!

WEEE!! Raphet! XD... He looks so nice!

hehe, since I drew him with Sechen, it seems almost weird seeing him alone.. but so pretty!

Oooh, look at that sexy nose on Dereniel. I love the random chess pieces and rose petals scattered around them, it really makes the picture look somewhat...nostalgic? But yeah, the characters look great in your style. *A*

random objects somehow adds something to artworks XD;; maybe those art assignment with setting up still life do have it's use XD!
