:pissedoff: Can you believe it? I spent 9 days making this illustration xD More than 45 h :faint:

This is an illustration from my Novel's Epilogue :P
Dhonia and Elril Together... Seeing as In sketch I hardly made them, Nicko came with the idea: "Please Please pli-pli-pli-pleaseeeeeeeeeeeee draw Dhonia and Elril together. They are so cute!!!" :iconinloveplz:

I've been "promising" a drawing of them for my sis for more than 1 year xD and So as not to have my conscience heavy I decided to finish the line art for this :P

But the odds were stacked against me T_T It was a slow start. I had to make about 3 substitute layers in order to get the right positions for them. My computer literally jammed when I tried to make the Curtains and wooopy... It deleted the PSD. >.> Lucky thing though I had saved all my data on CDs a day before so I had it back again, but without the bed sheet and curtains.
That BG took ages to make :iconcryingplz: It took about 2/3 of the total time spent for this.
See... This is why I hate making backgrounds... They waste a lot of precious time with making them blend >..>

Unlike my other Deviations which were cold, I chose warm colors and tones for this illustration. :3 I wanted to warm the hearts of those who see it ^_^

Why should I put a mature filter on ? For showing a man's back and a girl's legs?
Well that's about it... I hope you like it and Cheers !!!

Honestly spoken I think you exagerated his delta muscle and the muscles of his upper arm too much. His anatomy looks strange I think.
MaddalinaMocanu Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Deltoid muscle, not delta... that's something else :/
And I'm aware of that flaw, yet methinks here: [link] looks kinna the same, so it's part of the style :P

I understand, you intented to draw him like that because of the style he is part of.
