Alas, couldn't find the paper I wanted when I tried to buy it (was really curious about Canson and Strathmore that most of you recommended me in my latest poll!), so, while waiting to order it online, I just decided to buy a pack of something else... so I chose this ivory-coloured Favini Rismacqua, which is still a printing paper, but luckily seems to keep graphite good enough o_o...
This is the first try I had with it

I kinda stopped abruptly posting updates on the Tumblr post with the walkthrough, mostly because I finished the picture while I wasn't at home (in my car, actually XD under a street lamp while waiting in a parking lot later I even discovered there was a couple making out in the car next to mine >_>''...)

So yes, I'm still in my Istaaz-Vehnas period, and no, I'm not going to stop for now, sorry u__u

Pencils, 2H and 2B
Work in progress:…

Istaaz and Vehnas, from "Inavesu - The Timeless" belong to me, Serena Verde

Who wants you to stop? xP

Istaaz actually seems comfortable with him in this one, like she openly enjoys his presence here.
Beautiful drawing.

Vehnas, why you so sexy? *__*

I only just discovered your Embodiments series today and I'm trying to figure out the story from your gallery, but I've just got to say the expressions in this work are absolutely amazing. It says so much about their relationship, well done

I'm reading their expressions and this is what I hear:

Him: "Kissy, kissy, kissy,"

Her: "You're kidding right?"
