Shisou and Aarien.
Shadow rose - what the two make together. Shisou's the shadows and Aarien's the rose. :> Romantic, I think. It's also the name of some china sets, my roomie and I learned some months ago. Thus, also a joke. But cute. <3

And oh. MY GOD. I am so retardedly happy with this thing in RL. I've been playing around a lot lately, as some may notice, with a sort of "oldish" but not old looking set of colors. :> And I really, really like it though I think I want to try for the full colors all over the skin again (instead of just having the highlighted areas be sheer white, doing more shading to make it seem so instead), though it makes me nervous. In some ways prismacolor markers have become my friends, but they also deter me in a lot of ways. I wasn't so unsure about the colored pencils for skin tones - they took a hell of along time to do but I could at least color the entire area of skin.

...and dude. Just. NO. NO. This scan has ripped me a new one. I'm going to crawl into a corner and cry more.

    I like this piece because your style is very apparent, and I like it. ^-^ I love the way you draw faces; mouths, noses, eyes... and hair. ^^
