They say you can only fold paper 7 times but does it count as +1 if you draw a contortionist first XD

I found this tiny pencil on paper from 3 years ago so I did a quick redraw :3

Thought this could be a younger Yasha, the unbreakable Soviet fooling around on the beach :7

sometimes you need dry him so well before any act take place!

He he ~ ^w^
I remember that sketch.Tiny Heart 

I still like to see it a lot. It has a very special feeling looking at it. It feels special. Like... nostalgic. And warm.
Both drawings are really beautiful, but they have such a different ambiance and atmosphere.

On the right, it's very sunny, shiny, a nice afternoon on the beach, training to some awesome twists. Yasha really has an incredible body and so much skills. His freckles make him look absolutely adorable, and that smile is just too cute. :'3 His hair looks so soft and silky. You've detailed that a lot and it's well done. Really love to zoom in to look every detail you've put into it. The effect on his skin is very nice too by the way. This sort of oily shine. It's a very nice touch that makes the skin look super soft.
So yeah, on the right, it's very shiny, sunny, smily, warm. And on the left, it's... I can't explain. It's a feeling. It feels... peaceful. Very peaceful. Like sitting peacefully in a comfy and soft chair, with super soft cushions around, like being on a cloud, not thinking about any problems. Just enjoying the moment, relaxing, in a very peaceful way. It looks really... peaceful. That's the word I think. I really can't explain this feeling better because it's very special. And what is so special is that you can convey these sorts of feelings through your art. That's something special that is not given to everyone.

It's a wonderful illustration and I love both artworks a lot. I have different feelings for each of them. But I love them both a lot. lesbian heart 
Thank you for sharing your artworks and thank you for your creativity and for being who you are. cute bear heart

Thank you so much ^-^ <3

I liked that sketch that I did by your request and after someone recently asked about pencil drawings, I found that sketch and thought it's time for it to see the world ^.^ And it's also a good opportunity to draw that pose, I wanted to draw it ever since the day I did that little sketch! Of course I did the same pose before on my demon Inael and the four Oriental elves but the pose is quite interesting and fun to draw again on some other character. I liked that character who looked kind of Slavic to me, so I thought why not draw Yasha in this pose! And I'm very glad that you liked him so much! <3

It's funny that you find it relaxing because deep inside I always felt like contortion for me is much more relaxing than the normal poses, if I drew him with the very same expression just sitting or laying around, it wouldn't be the same as the contortion pose for some reason. Normal poses have some kind of tension and stress in them, I don't know why ^.^ But there's something about the impossible poses that's very relaxing and I'm very glad that you see it the same way! :3

Thank you so much again for your comment and taking time to write so much! ^.^ It really means a lot to me and makes me very happy to share art that leads to a happy conversation XD And I'm happy you enjoyed this character and both drawings! :3

Thank you so much, there's a 3 years gap between them and the sketch was something I did for my friend who urged me to try drawing on paper. I think I might actually need to draw on paper more because it's easier and quicker and even if it's crap it still helps to come up with ideas that I can redraw digitally after.

Super cool! I love it when friends inspire me to do more with my art! :heart: 

Sketching ideas and thumbnails on paper is the best, I think! :nod:
