Ether - All In The Look by nashidesei Ether - All In The Look by nashidesei
Favie with no commentie make Nashi a sad box of crackerJaks.

They make that look good huh?

Okay, to be fair this isn't actually an illustration for ~tai-azkaban-huntress' Ether, simply because Torn and Damas have pointed ears in this picture and in the fic they don't. But it's close e-freaking-nough, and I didn't think Tai would mind much if I categorized it with the other pictures I've done.

Anyway! Not much to say about this one. I spent a lot of time on it, but it was actually really easy. I don't have any idea why it was so easy, but the whole picture just flowed really well from sketch to completion. The hardest part was, I think, Torn's skin. I'm still not entirely happy with it, but it's not enough dissatisfaction to keep me chugging away.

This is one of the few pictures of Torn I've done in my entire life, and it is the very first that I am entirely and completely happy with. And it ends up being a freaking AU so I don't get to draw any of his awesome tattoos...oh well.

Has anyone else noticed that the way I draw elfie ears keeps getting more and more complicated? Line after line after liiiiiine. I blame *Luna-Kitsune-Blu, because her elfie ears rock so hard that I have been subconciously mimicking them lately.

(Oh yeah, I've created a monster. Because, horror of horrors, this is one of the pairings Tai features in Ether. Yes, DamasxTorn. Dear Gaea.)

I like how you drew the ears, though I can't help but wonder how they'd sleep comfortably with them!

OOoooooh man, I luff this pic XD Even if the pairing kinda makes me go more '...uh...okay?' than squee, this is a VERY NICE PIC. LUFF their eyes. Very much. And Damas's hair, mostly. Okay, BOTH their hair, but I really like Kingy's all long like that ^^

As for the ears -BLUSH- ^^ thanks honey. You've ALWAYS made them look good, but I'm glad I've helped make them look better ^^

Torn looks especially cool here, I think. ;) What can I say, he works the red! Both their eyes are really pretty though, and I love how you colored the suits with the gradient.

Sweetness. My only beef is that Torn's right ear looks like it should be behind his head. Those ever-so-complicated ears are love, by the way. <3

This is SO good. I LOVE the sideglance that Damas is doing, and Torn's entire 'meh'-ness. Fits him ^^

By the prece4rsors, really? DamasXTorn? Le Gasp! XD

I think Torn looks hawt. I wanna take him home with me. Which is odd because I have a major dislike for the guy in normal terms.

Elfie ears look better complicated.
