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.

DETAIL SHOT can be found here: [link]

Lucifel and Artwork me, Sam Hogg
Pain

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!

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.

The anatomy is lovely. The coloring does look a teeny bit fuzzy, but I think, for the image, it really just add to the emotion. Even without a real background, I really get a sense of a place... or.. an atmosphere. And Pain's hair is lovely and damn, you're right about the drop dead gorgeous part XD gimee gimee

May I ask you something about how the underlying surface color works? I'm looking at whites on things. Can you tell me why this one looks 'cool' to me, but in this other one by ~gutterball the whites look warm?

I realize I don't really know what I'm asking and the terms are imprecise. Feel free to correct me.
