Excerpt from Lost and Found - Groom's Men.
Cadenza: Cadenza found her left hand gripped around someone’s collar. Her knuckles pressed against a throbbing heat. A heartbeat under a thin jawline. She was on both knees, one hand pinning Roh down by the throat and the other halfway to reaping his adam’s apple well past harvest season. Her shivering breath was so close that its mist condensated on his face, each shallow exhalation a puff of white in the freezing air. The harder she tried to stabilize her grip, the more her limbs shook. The dream had yet to relinquish its hold on her. After all, everything was darkness to her. Asleep. Awake. That thin border between what’s fiction and what’s real slipped over her neck like a choke wire, and with it, brought Roh into the loop. A single drop of her cold sweat splattered onto him.
Roh (Moonania): “C-Cadenza….” he called out calmly but his voice was raspy, his hands shaking as he tried to make his way to hers. He wanted to pull it away from her but it was not easy. She didn’t seem awake yet. Not herself yet.
“Cadenza….” he called out again. He managed to find her right hand that held the shears and placed his cold hand to try to wake her without causing her to jolt. He had to take this as calmly as possible but even his hands couldn’t help but shake in fear.
“Dante!” He clutched at a sleeve, tugging his friend towards Cadenza’s direction. “Dante, Cadenza’s about to kill someone, please help-”
Dante: “Cadenza, no!" He grabs the girl and tears her off of Roh with force before wrapping his arms around her, holding her in a tight embrace before he dares to lift one of his arms and use his hand to stroke back some of the girls hair.
“Ssshhhhh….calm down, we are not going to hurt you, you need to snap out of it. You are alive.” He spoke with a hushed and soft voice, trying to calm down the girl in his arms and slowly loosens his hold on her, but not enough for her to escape. Not yet.
“Shhhh...it’s alright now...”
But I am so jealous about how you can capture the feel of the scene in your drawings!
I can really see it all in this drawing, it's such a lovely thing Nyan. QuQ //wheezes
We should RP at some point, now that things are more wrapped up.
Happy New Year to you, btw. >w<
Also I normally don't say that but the picture reminds me of a painting by Gustave Doré "Dante et Vergil dans le neuvième cercle de l'enfer" (Which I definitely not mean in a negative way!). It's the thick ice as the ground and the eerie atmosphere that remind me of it. And oh my, while typing this I just noticed the boy's called Dante as well. X'D
Anyways, you did an awesome job! I'd love to see more simple creepy art of you, hohoho~
Dante and Vergil on the 9th circle of Hell. It was one of the covers to a copy of Dante's Inferno that I read back in middle school ; v;
I will try to do more creepy art when I can. I have a creepy OC so it shouldn't be terribly hard. LOL
Thank you so much ; v; <333
But I digress, This and the excerpt from the leaves chills down my spine...and yet I am still hungering for more. This is truly remarkable Nyan! I am eager to see more!
thank you so much ; v;
The excerpt has a lot of words cut out from it to save space. The actual scene itself was far more intense. ; v; I wish I could bring the whole thing over. OTL
I enjoyed watching you work on this a bit when you were streaming~ Good stuff! Love the lighting used~
The boots are designed to hurt whoever kicks her (and also designed to hurt whoever has to draw them o uo)b )
As in fear you into making more submissions to the group. Aurum.
and of course your art is gorgeous as always <33 the shading is just hhhhh
Cadenza's eyes and those shears... they are scary //runs
LOL there's even more missing context. I chopped a lot of the text out of each person's post to shorten it.
(Good. She is meant to be a rather scary person.)
... LOL well then, still gets the message across, plus it portrays the characters well... So I suppose that's alright :>
I will say though, this group sounds like lots of suffering -- and that's always fun 8D
Aye, sometimes she really can be -- but I'm sure you wouldn't want to scare away a possible source of good luck //slapped to the moon
That was such an intense scene filled with confusion of the groom party waking up to an unfamiliar scene and a missing groom. It was interesting reading how some students reacted
I still giggle though cause while everyone was like drama+panic+scared+ohshit... Kyrie and Cylan were stuck in their hole. 8D;
And the excerpt of the roleplay is just stunning.
To me the sentiment is the most important focal point of a piece so I'm happy that it came through.
At first glance I got confused with the arms and hands, but then I understood it and felt amazing how he is holding her.
I got curious about her shoes, stockings and the ground~!
Your drawings makes my imagination to fly high x)
Would be nice to see some small comics with her in your sketch chibi style, not requesting, just saying ^^ because I'm enjoying discovering more about Cadenza, it feels like watching an anime :3
//but I pretty much would love to discover more of any of your ocs, maybe because I like every story you create 8D ops
I--- I DO HAVE SOMETHING OF A COMIC IN THE WORKS--- but it's not about her. ; v; It's about her ally, Severo. But I think it'll give some amount of insight into the story too, I hope. XD
IDK if it'll come out alright because it's so messy ; v;
Thank you for supporting my stories Hyan <3333
no problem Nyan, I'm trying to give more love to the artists I love, so sorry if start to spam you >A>
hahah that's ok, I will enjoy seeing any comics from you!
psssst being messy is good too 8D
Love the atmosphere of this <3 Can't wait for the artbook. Really falling in love with cadenza she seems to grow with you ^^ Love seeing more of her character
I'm happy she's growing. XD It'd be boring if she didn't lol. But her expressions are changing out of blank-slate-piece-o-rock and I'm excited to see where she goes. o vo
It was fairly easy to pull the expressions together since the scene was already written out and with a lot of context.
