        First thing- I don't know how you ink, but use a black ink pen- it'll shapen up your lines, and make them blacker. A helpfull thing for drawing pictures of people kissing when you're not use to it is having a photo referance. The net is great for this, or go through stock photos in Deviantart. Every tenth pic is either a girl x boy or same sex kissing pic in the stock piles ^^; I keep a special section on my computer for referance pics as I come across them. Large grey scales for practicing at later dates, clothing referances, poses, and kissing- which is HARD.
        Another big point to note is body stance. The guys stance it that of a guy that deaply cares for the girl, and has finally got her, but she is in a shy and withdrawn stance, which makes the couple uncertain, and him too dominating rather than mutual. What is beter, is if her hands were around him or down- not stopping him from comming closer. Bodys facing is intimate, sideways is friendship, and oppositing is hostile. Handy to remember- this applys to most pics. If someone pushes someone away, then there is hostility, and pulling in is closeness.

        Some examples are (Sorry, I'm gonna use my art cause I can't be bother surfing ^^; )-
        http://www.paperdemon.com/artview.php/id/4633.html Both facing eachother totally, and both pulling the other closer- VERY intimate
        http://www.paperdemon.com/artview.php/id/4572.html Bodies facing, touching eachother, but her face is turned away- deap friendship but not quite love at this point
        http://www.paperdemon.com/artview.php/id/4252.html Backs to eachother, but hands linking. Hostility between the two of them for reasons, but they secretly have feelings for the other that they can't share
        http://www.paperdemon.com/artview.php/id/4163.html Bodies facing away from eachother, but one is holding the other, the other oblivious- Person has secret feelings for the other that they can't show for some reason.

        This make any sence? It can be aplied to alot of poses. A scene can mean a heap of different things depending on how the body interacts with the surroundings. In the last pic, the guy is holding his sword, but looking toward the guy- that can be taking as him putting the other guy on a higher level to his sword- which is true.
