Edit 27 Jan 2012:
This was a result of a little advice sharing I had with :iconviccolatte: and I am really glad I got to talk with her, otherwise I wouldn't have experimented the over-shiny effect of Screen for Saturated Colors :la:
For a long time now I've been setting my mind to remake this deviation, I can assure you, so in the past few days I took the chance and remade it - color wise. Aside from a few tweaks, the Line Art was and still is really good. I also made Dhonia look slightly more feminine than before and the entire piece is lighter... I dunno if that's good, but I like the result.
Do they seem out of place? From afar it does seem like that :(

Also I wanted to renew my avatar xD
Here is the old version:

Translation from irthala (my novel's language):
I adore you, (my) elder brother...
Ta ta tadaaa!!! Dhonia and her brother, Brunar, as Elders.
You're saying: "OMG! Siblings (twins actually) in the same bed. Ewww..."
but all they do in the bed is sleep. :dummy: And for your info, he has pants :P

Ithloch Ianim (Dhonia) and Erath Ianim (Brunar) are High Believers amongst the kin that takes them as their own, the Irthala. After a series of unfortunate events, in which they are separated, they reunite, only to be put in the situation of separation again after a brief time together.
They rejoice upon their lives memories, she as an Elder and he as Feamorlus <<< Name was changed in the meantime :P , the Darkwielder and after Erath Ianim makes a chant to weave her blood with his, as his Elder body isn't the same as the one that Feamorlus had taken over (initially belonging to Brunar).
Dhonia comes to her brother with the decision to share her chambers and bed with him, yet "for nothing rash". She had been separated from him and the pain of that was more unbeareble that when Feamorlus had taken hold of her mind.

Is this incest? No, it's not, because they don't engage in anything than just embraces. :D
Is this free love? No, because seeing as they are siblings and Elder High Believers, they are free of ill thoughts towards each other.
Do they kiss (a question which lingers in each of your minds I'm sure :D)? Childishly, she rarely gives him a shy kiss on his upper lip. The most serious kiss they had was when she had to breathe life into his veins, for he had been "ressurected" if you can call it that as a lifeless galumir body.
Yet all this purity, do they quarrel? Yes, they do fight, sometimes for details sometimes because of serious matters, but never to the extent of hating one another.
Is Dhonia naked under the bed sheet?Yes, she is. The scene is a part of her show of trust towards him. She had never trusted him fully, yet now as a High Believer, even if she is slightly fearfull, she feels she can freely show her affection towards him, which includes revealing her secrets (and not only ^_^). Yet nudity is only suggested, so I will not be putting the mature tag.

Is my novel about incest? It's about avoiding it on one hand and on the other it's about Dhonia and Brunar's struggles to prove themselves different from the rest of the humans (they were humans at first). The epilogue is the life story of Ithloch Ianim, Erath Ianim and Elril Amrath and it features many themes that do not appear in the novel.

Those are a lot of folds. It was a drag to make them look right and have the right color and depth. I couldn't make them look flowing >.>

Either way I hope you like it. :D

I love the colours and the way the sheet is folding. I also get this sort of warm, fuzzy feeling when I look at the siblings. :>

Interesting story idea. ^^

By checking out the old version, I'd say, this one is definitely better and improved :) And thank you for your info for all of us wondering "whaaa they are siblings? incest? kiss? wtf?" :XD: and get back our minds to the details of the drawing instead of the sibling stuff :)

The scars on Brunar's ear were there, but in April I didn't know how to use hard light and soft light to my advantage so i just made him stretch marks... and that's all. >.<

Yet compared to the technique I have used on my latest drawing, this old one looks really sloppy. It's been running my mind to remake it and at the same time try to make some adjustments as well :D

Sometimes you'd be surprised by how good something can look when you think it's sloppy! I really like this how it is, though I'm sure a remake of it would be awesome too! :D
