I don't know who the characters are, but I get a very good idea of WHO they are, their personas, from your depiction of their expressions and their poses. White and black have always been my favorite contrast (besides orange and blue) and you did a fabulous job without losing detail in the black or making the white look gray with all the shading.
Your clothing is amazing, as always. ^_^ And that dragon is really cute! It reminds me of Cha-Rin.
I think it's interesting, the facial expressions you gave them. Maybe it was the commission, or maybe it was the fact that the two central figures were looking at each other, but for some reason, this work seems different. It FEELS different. I think it's because of the characters viewpoints. Any normal picture you create (myself as well, for that matter) always tend to look directly at the viewer, welcoming them into that space. I like this one because it is a PRIVATE scene, one we're not meant to see but are viewing secretly. If I'm not making any sense, please ignore me.
;;; But I like it because it is intimate...a moment shared just between those two and us. It makes it feel.........special. That's the most accurate word I can come up with. =3
That is enough nonsense out of me. Fave!!
