You know, usually I hate titles punctuated like that, being a language purist at heart, but I needed something that drew the words out longer, and putting all those fullstops in seems to do that. And that's important, because one of the reasons I really like that pose is that the two figures both look like they're inhaling, and I wanted the title to reflect that.

The two figures (both MEN by the way) are Lucifel (my rp character version of him, not the bible one), and Pain, the judgement angel who belongs to * mistressofspam. These two are the most evil duo about, despite the fact they look like light and dark personified. They are violent lovers, partners in crime, master and slave, brute strength and cunning. They complement each other exceptionally well, and you don't want to cross either of them, even on a good day.

And they are both drop dead gorgeous.

Pencil on wine cardstock which was waaay too furry for pencil work, hence the reason its not as smooth as I'd have liked, but not a bad thing persay.

This helps inspire my novel I'm writing for nanowrimo this year and I hope it's ok if I can use the art as a cover for it? I don't think I can find much better than this for my storyline.

Hey, really glad the art inspires you! I have to ask you don't use the image as a cover though as the characters in it belong to myself and a good friend, and I'm pretty sure she, like myself, would rather these images were not used to represent other characters. Many thanks!

I totally understand, this is why I ask! Beautiful work none the less ;)

this is beautiful. I LOVE your pencil work, the texture you create is amazing. What kind of colored pencils do you use?

This piece was done with your regular prisma colour pencils on the wine-colored cardstock.

this is a beautiful piece. the angel has a very feminine features, but its actually male, it kind of creates the "chiseled" features that almost every girl swoons over.
The demon, has very very good masculine features,and the arch of his eye brows was very well done. this is really fabulous, i love it.
