Haunting Me -SessKag- by tallydragon Haunting Me -SessKag- by tallydragon
Gift!art for twistedintellect (aka moonflames) for being awesome. It's fanart for her fanfic Nothing at All [link] , an awesomely introspective Sesshoumaru/Kagome romance (read it! Go!). The image is based on this scene, in Chapter 2:

[text is written by and copyrighted to moonflames]

“Why?” he whispered once more. He raised one clawed finger to her face centimeters away from the soft skin of her cheek. Tempted, tempted to carve his confusion onto her skin.

Finally she broke from her stupor. “Why what Sesshoumaru?” she voiced back with a quiet reverence. Her glance never went to his hand but looked instead into his eyes as if she was searching as well. Her silvery eyes reflected nothing but his confusion back to him.

“Why do you haunt me?”


He's supposed to look all confused and anguished, but with my [absence of] skill at portraying emotions, he seems to have come out more tender. Oh well. ^_^;; I'm pleased anyway, because I totally couldn't have done this six months ago! (especially Kagome's awkward angle, which I did entirely without reference).

Anyway, done in photoshop with a tablet--at, like, twice the size it is here. XD It could practically be a wallpaper. Drawing big was fun, and it helped me do neater lines...might try it more often. Although, to my frustration, my lines were all nice and crisp in the original photoshop file, but they fuzzed a bit when I saved it to JPEG! Curses. I shall defeat you yet, O demons of formatting.

~Done entirely in Photoshop 6 with a Wacom tablet.

This pic is beautiful!! Everything is perfect! Except for one thing. And it's not his nose, but the eyes. The red eyeshadow is missing, that is why he looks somewhat odd... ;-) But it is still going to be in my faves!!! :D

Beautiful. I love it Tally. Welldone ^__^! 10/10!
Lilith-sama Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2008
You're amazing! Gorgeous! Stupendous! I bow to you in awe of your magnificent skills!

...Any-hoo, pardon me and all, but my first impression of this picture of Sesshomaru was that he was drunk. Quite funny, if you ask me. Once I read the little bit, I understood the picture...but he looks oddly intoxicated...maybe it's just me.

Kudos. to. You!

Sweet, love it. *Runs off to read fanfic.*

your artwork keeps getting better and better, although I must add sesshomaru's facial features are looking kind of small compared to the size of his head.

i haven't read it, but this looks great :3
twistedintellect Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2008
OMG!! Have I told you lately how awesome you are? Thank you so much for this. I could not be more honored that you did this. It is perfect and wonderful and lovely and, and....WOW!

You completely captured his confusion and anguish. This is just the way I pictured the scene in my head when I wrote it... I cannot get over how talented you are. Thank you Tally, for the time it took for you to create this and for the sheer greatness of this piece, you are wonderful!!! :heart: :hugs:

To keep your lines from getting fuzzy, isn't it possible to safe your .jpegs on maximum quality / file size? I myself use CS2 quite some time now, so I don't remember what it was like in 6. ^^;

Looks great anyway! Keep up the good work. :D

What are you talking about? You're great at emotions. When I looked at that (before I read the description) I was thinking, "I love Sesshomaru...buuut, I don't think I'd want to be stuck in whatever he's thinking."

So sweet. I didn't know she'd written a story. *wanders off to look*
Vieforme Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2008

I see his anguish but also the tenderness. not so much the confusion. Yes you did a wonderful job.
