At Break of Day Arising by temiel At Break of Day Arising by temiel
"Haply I think on thee, and then my state,
Like to the lark at break of day arising
From sullen earth, sings hymns at heaven's gate;
For thy sweet love remembered such wealth brings
That then I scorn to change my state with kings."
~Shakespeare, from Sonnet 029

Update: Sorry for the spam! I made a couple changes, namely colored the line work, because I was in such a hurry to upload this last night that I totally forgot to do it! -_- Also, I discovered a little patch of wing that wasn't shaded! So I fixed that too. ;)

This one's been in the works for a few days, but I decided to spend a little more time than usual on it. I did this totally for me, to play with a new coloring technique, and do a really unambiguous liplock, and some big, fluffy, gorgeous, anatomically convincing wings, and Farael's hot-as-hell officer coat. I hope you guys like it too, because I'm really proud of the result.

Full view is appreciated, because I really like the detail. :)

Characters are, of course, Rian and Farael again. Daww.

1/20/10 Update: WOW! My first-ever Daily Deviation!! Thanks so much to *sionra for suggesting it, and `Thiefoworld for selecting it among what must have been a TON of other deserving work. THANK YOU ALL. :heart:

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-01-20
At Break of Day Arising by =temiel ( Suggested by sionra and Featured by Thiefoworld )
And you defiantly should be proud of this! What a beautiful piece of artwork! The colors are so rich and vibrant, and they go so perfectly with the background too. And my goodness, look at those wings! There is so much detail and they are so lovely! I could almost reach out and touch them. ^-^
And there are so many minor details in here that really bring the piece together. The way her dress is flowing, or the blush on her face. The lace and ruffles in the outfits. And the hands! Hands are so hard to draw, but you did so well! I love how graceful your art is! Way to go, this really is a wonderful picture. :clap:

Your piece is beautiful, I almost have no words for it! But well, you have a very lovely portrayal of love, I can feel the warm, gentle emotions stirring inside me as though I'm one of the two in the drawing. And as nice as it is to my heart, it's even nicer to my eyes! You have such wonderful, vibrant colors, yet it's so soft! It really adds to the emotion. And the pose was something I loved the most, it looks so graceful, I wasn't sure if they were dancing or if it's a sweet embrace, but it's beautiful! And lastly, their clothes, I haven't seen anyone drawn like this in awhile and I'm talking about outside of the Kuroshitsuji fandom, you did a nice job with their attire and his wings, it really fits the drawing and they're absolutely gorgeous! I'm not sure where else to go from here, you did a great job on this and I didn't see any need for improvement. Keep up the good work, you really grabbed my heart with this one!
