Invisible and Forgivable [SS]

Posted Aug 15, 2007, 4:06:51 PM

Full title: Invisible and Forgivable [Stockholm Syndrome]. I submit this first because It's my featured artwork on my Sheezyart gallery [which is my main gallery]. It already got featured in two websites, and I love it dearly.

I want to jump off a bridge.
This took me lots of time; a week, I think, which is a lot of time for me to be working on a painting - and these are actually two paintings attached with Open Canvas. Doing the reflections was particularly hard, since I had no idea what should reflections look like. I hope they came out good.
These are two new OCs: Castor [upper one with darker hair and Chinese clothing] and Dreil [lower cyberpunkish one] Sanjaya. They’re Jiang Shis [better known as Hopping Corpses or Chinese Vampires], and also Siamese twins separated after birth [hence the scars]. This painting is actually very meaningful for me, since it kinda represents their personalities. Castor is very attached [emotionally, obviously] to Dreil and has a very hard time being apart from him β€’ while Dreil tries to have a life of his own, not entirely apart from Castor, since he owes him his life [Castor saved him once], but not as close to Castor as Castor would like them to be.
This is it, for now, I guess.

Dreil Β© Kerrigore, Castor Β© myself. The title was taken from Messenger by Blonde Redhead, and Stockholm Syndrome by Muse.
[P.S.; I know Sanjaya is the lame Indian guy from American Idol, FUCK OFF.]

    This is amazing work, I love the colours & detail. The story of their characters is very intriguing too. Smile

      Thank you very much! Kerrigore and myself still need to actually write down their history, though.

    Still one of my favorites from you. *refuses to roast you* Nyah. :p

    But Castor is still my favorites. Big Smile He's just prettier. *pets his hair* For some reason I just just noticed how cool the pattern on his clothing is. And also the way you did the folds on his sleeve. *nod*

    Love the reflections too. Smile

      You never heard me saying this, but I think he's the better looking one too. XD Thank you, Lisa. Heart
