Moukemono: Once Upon A Time by kitten-chan Moukemono: Once Upon A Time by kitten-chan
As Yukio walks into the room, he comes to realize that the reason Kyousuke hasn't been answering is because he is fast asleep, sprawled almost shamelessly over the couch. He smiles briefly at the other boy's slumber and makes his way over to sit next to him, but he stumbles, blinded by a sudden, dizzy flash of bright white that sends him tumbling forward momentarily.

The sight of Kyou sleeping soundly on the sofa turns into something else; something unfamiliar and familiar at the same time - Kyou, sprawled just as he is only covered in luscious fabrics and cradled by the intricate sewing of sheets they could never afford. A memory he couldn't recall.

But the vision is as quick to leave as it was to come, and Yukio is only left staring and blinking as if Kyou was going to change again any moment. But only the soft breathing reached his ears, and the light rise and fall of Kyou's chest under an old, worn in sweatshirt.

There are two pictures here because Rae and I couldn't decide which we liked better XDD we're so indecisive...
Which do you guys like?

snippet by ~o0zotto0o... <3

characters in picture and story are (c) to ~o0zotto0o and myself. Questions?

I love this, the little story just adds to the whole thing!>v< The colours in both are so gorgeous, I think the top one is my fav though. Makes me sad that Moukemono isn't really happening anymore though!;_;

I like both. But I mean, the brighter colors lured me in!
YuMEYe Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2010  Student General Artist
Both colours are great in their own way!
Dark-Fox-spirit Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2010
If I had to pick between the two, I would definately pick the bottom. It's more pleasing to the eyes and the muted colors really bring the effect of the little snippet. I also like the bottom because the muted colors gives it a soft and morning-like effect to it :meow:
Elfana Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Oh, love both colors themes O_O'
catvampcrazines Featured By Owner May 3, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Brilliant and a treat for the eyes!
Mooncatgirl Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2010
I like both.
They fit so perfectly to the story. When you tell about Yukio's flashback. I thought the upper one was that flashback memory thing.
FeatherBrained Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2010
Love em both. What program? >:
Orangegurl55 Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2010
Bottom. Definitely. The saturated colors don't give the scene the intensity it deserves.
I think the bottom one is much better for the context. I think that it conveys better that the scene is an old memory. :3
nanaere Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2009
oooowwwww really really beautyyyyy :heart:
aaww :star::star::star::star::star: 4 you !
vines-of-blood Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2009
It is both extremes... kida like when you have the tv set to bright on top and like you are looking at an old dirty phot on the bottom
Drunny Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2009  Student Traditional Artist
i like more the second one owo i think it looks better with warm colors
AltairMonky Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2009
They are both extremely wonderful. :O
Though I honestly like the bottom one better.
ElaclairesSkies Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2009
The flow of the words is absolutely lovely :heart: As for the drawing, it goes wonderfully with your description
zilverenx Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2009
I...can't decide either. They're both really cool. Hmm... Nope. I don't see a decision in sight. XD
watashiveracasan Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2009
Oddly enough I like both of the pictures the same ^^ They both are beautiful ~
Emyon Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2009  Student Digital Artist
I think the second one feels more like a memory, but i love the colorfull-ness of the first c:
kewsithydemon Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2009  Hobbyist
super cute! :D
Mo-Khan Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2009
I like the one on the bottom better.
The top is a bit too bold for sleep, to me.
Asaryn Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2009  Student General Artist
I prefer the bottom one. I like the colors more. I think the softness reflects the subject matter better where as I find the top one's vibrant colors overbearing and irritating. But I respect everyone's opinions as well.
Deadly-Elegant Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2009
Gosh, I love the snippet. ^^
Personally I prefer the second version. The muted, faded colours are easier on the eye and are more suggestive of sleep. It also fits more carefully with the written piece.
Nice work.
Gaesis Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2009
I think the lower half has a more vision-like feel to it and my friend agrees that she likes it better too.
kh2kid Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2009  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Wow. This piece is visually stunning the colors on the top version are incredible and the line art is so nice and clean. I also enjoy the expression on the character. Very nice job!
TheFairyTaleEndsHere Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2009
soo prity..>.<
Yushi-Moto Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2009
I like the bottom one more.... I dunno why, but it seems more fantasy like.
Twilight-Kisses Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2009
Ilike the bottom one a lot. It just feels soft and sweet like the story.
Hirahime Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2009  Student Digital Artist
I'm not sure which one I like more either! They're both so pretty~ <3 But I guess the second one fits the description better. The description if amazing too, btw. xD :+favlove:
Mirasaros Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I personally prefer the top one because it has a deeper feel to it. I like the deeper because it gives me a feel of sleep. Sinking, sleeping....

I loooove the picture. ^^
katty-angel Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2009
I like the second one because it seems more dream-like, while the colours of the one above are too vibrant to be anything but real.

But both are very lovely.
HowlingWolf201 Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2009  Student Digital Artist
the bottom one reminds me of like the morning when the sun is just coming up and so the light is like coming in through a window that would be to HIS right. the top one seems to remind me of nightime...
KirishimaAyama Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2009  Student General Artist
I can't decide either. xD
Wonderful. :)
gerbot15 Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2009
the bottom one looks more fuzzy like an image you can't quite remember.

The top one looks a little hypnotic lolz
neko-cat-kirara Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2009
i like the one on the bottem best, it has the feel of a memory to it.
FeelLikeRain13 Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2009

I'm amazed.
I have to say I like the top one better because it's brighter but the bottom one looks less sort of... trippy.
Not that the top one looks trippy, just that the colors are soooo bright!
AwesomeMcSauce Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
I like the top one the best, so bright and colorful.

very cute!
fruits-basket-head Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2009  Student General Artist
Both are fantastic but I have to say that I prefer the second one. The story is fantastic and the pictures represent it well!
Udyjay Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2009
FFFFFFFFFFFFF OH MY GOD. *melts* S-so... rapeable-- cute!

I like the bottom one, because it seems to fit more with the description. c: <3
DantexVergil Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2009
They're both nice but I like the bottom one more.
hikaru-the-small Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2009
do u have a gaia? :D
vashperado Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2009  Professional Filmographer
waha excellent!
Iqho Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2009
Personnaly, my favorite one is the bottom one. Really nice job anyway !
Jontamar Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2009  Professional General Artist
It's really hard to decide, but I think I like the lighter one in the bottom. at least I feel it goes better with the dicription in the A's comment.. :]
both are really cute though :D
Zenxara Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2009  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I like the top one, the color are more distic and we can see the details better. But the one bellow fits your discription better.Its more fogy-ish? thing-a-majing. so it give more the effect of dreaming or flash back.

Mitsuki-Angel000 Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2009
I love the texture it gives it the feel of a comic.
What-Love-Is Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2009
bottom one bottom one bottom one ^u^
soz lol, they are both brilliant, but the softer colour just seems to work better i think :meow:
Prince-Gabriel Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2009  Student Digital Artist
amazing the are both wonderful i don't know what to pick.the first one really pops out in color but the secound one is like something in an old memory.
corpsing Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2009
I actually think that the two together is the best choice because it better portrays the angelic essence of the character if he's seen beautifully in two perspectives.
yuki-tsukihana Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2009   Traditional Artist
mm, I like the bottom. the top one is pretty, and probably matches what he sees, but the bottom has a more dreamlike quality to it :3
*so interested in seeing more of your Moukemono storyline*
