Sesshomaru and Kagome by KaoruMoonGoddess Sesshomaru and Kagome by KaoruMoonGoddess
FINALLY!!!!!!!!!! >.<

This line art was in my scrap drawer for so freaking long..... I just got tired of it staring at me accusingly so I finally buckled down and painted it.

For those unaware, this is Kagome Higurashi and Lord Sesshomaru for the anime/manga Inuyasha. I LOVE THIS PAIRING!!! >.<


Done from an inked line drawing and painted in PS7. Total time painting eh 4-5 hours give or take

I like how it turned out though I kinda think Kags in a little spaced out in this.... maybe cause she just got kissed by hotness supreme but meh >.>

>.< that and Sesshy looks a little to pleased with himself....

Comment Please! I love to hear what you guys have to say!!

Btw I hate flamers.If you don't like them as a pair I don't want to see any flames ...... or said flames will be redirected at your homes and they shall BURN!!

:EDIT: added Sesshy's claws (which I forgot) touched up the shadows, and both Sesshy's and Kagome's Hair

:iconparadoxsketchbook:
First impression: :thumbsup: very impressive! :nod:

Atmosphere: Yes....you can sense the mood of this piece is romantic/seductive type and you get that across. ;) It really drags the viewer in as romance is a strong emotion trigger. Plus it well definitely attract the fan girls (me being one) :meow:

Colors: They fallow the original work and work well with each other. The colors are well blended (your main good point is the blending).

Contrast: :plotting: my favorite part.
First off: the blurry-ness! As we talked before and I suggested that either you could blend out the rest of the lines or make them clear. It seems you blurred some. ^^; Now that really works against the blurry/misty type of clouds you have with the moon. I would try making the lines a bit darker or bolder and see how that works. It well be a completely different piece. Right now the blurry effect on the lines where the clothes and the faces are it looks unfinished... And the fact that you even put a blurry touch to the hair definitely works against the the blurry outlines. If the hair was not so blurry/soft/furry then the lines would be fine as they are. Not to mention: the fur on Sesshy's shoulder is blurry too :XD: So much blurry stuff!
So: either get rid of the blurry effect in the hair or on the out lines. :)
Also: On Kagome's shirt you have outlined the wrinkles with a defined line....that is very distracting compared to the rest of the lines. ^^;
One problem I had: I tried to find the light source....did not work. At first I thought I knew by the shadows in his hand but then it goes the other way when we look at the hair and then Kagome does not even have any strong shadows to indicate where the light source is for her. :hmm: Which is weird as you are awesome with light sources. I don't know if you fixed this a little too much and got rid of some things or what but I could tell the light source's direction before.
The hand is awesome! :dummy: But fix the pinkie....his claw sticks off his pinkie. :XD: We don't want that. :XD:
Background is super and does not need anything done with it. I see that the clothes were fixed. :iconthumbsupplz:

Originality: there would be no comment here as this is fan art. :movingon: :)

Technique: your tendency to blur the hair is obvious here. I am falling in love with the way you did the background. :D As said before: the blur effect is starting to dominate...^^; It shows up pretty much everywhere in the piece. You should only use it main parts so it can give you a leg up. :p Original and general artistic techniques can be seen in this...it's a good combo. :)

Theme: :D Well we know what that is here. I well say that you have captured this well used pose/setting! Not everyone can achieve this without making a mess out of it. Not to mention the fact that his eyes are dead on! :o
They really draw the viewer in.

Extra: Try using more "hard" brush strokes. Or other brush types besides the ones that are dominant here. The tilt of his head would hide some off the chin but not so much. :no: Right now the distance from the red marking on his cheek to the chin is too little. It gives him the look of a very thin boy....and he is not that. Have you thought about giving the moon a little glow around the edges?

Exposure: If the main focus is just Sesshomaru then I would make Kagome less "bright." If the main focus is both of them then make Sesshy a bit brighter as right now: Sesshy does capture the eye but because Kagome is so bright, she seems to be the main focus. And poor Sesshy seems to be the second main subject of the piece. If that is what you wanted then well done. :clap:

Focusing: If you do want to use that blurry touch to your advantage then: make the edges of the piece darker or add one single shadow over them (maybe even change the background) to add a "more" beddy type situation. Something to give it a dreamy touch. Right now it's floating in between. :shrug:

Character: you have captured the characters in there normal settings.....so good job. :D

Sorry if this comes off too mean but I know you want to hear it. ^^; If you need references for anything then let me know as it is part of the critique and I well find some. :)

:icongreatjobplz: Good job!!!! :clap:

OH MY GOODNESS!! yeay, freaky fan girl addiction! muahahahahahahahahaaa! this is very beautiful, and i do like the mood of the whole thing. um... the only thing i can see in need of any looking at at all, would have to be..... hummmmm.....
you missed the thumb claw, and Sesshy's arm/wrist could be a bit more sculpted.
i like Kagome's expression and the blush in her cheeks, like physical contact with Sesshoumaru was completely unexpected. heh, how cute <3

It's pretty good. I think that the skin on Kagome's lips could use a little 'shimmer' especially after sesshy has slobbered all over them...but, eh, besides that it's good!

It's too purely well done and beautiful for me to keep my eyes in this world!

Plus that's is a nice smile you rarely see on Sesshomaru face...but believable after reading over about a 100 fanfic bout it.

BUT IT STILL BURNS!!!

Thank you for making Sesshomaru look like a MAN and yet retaining his feminine beauty. I actually love the blurriness of this image; I think it fits well with the many gorgeous colors of Sesshomaru. Quite romantic.
