I Am Becoming by angelicremains I Am Becoming by angelicremains
Transferring stuff from my main account to this account for storage of my more risqué art.

Title inspired by the NIN song "Becoming". *windfalcon is teaching me copics and this is the result! I couldnt think of a funner couple to test out new methods on. (that's *windfalcon's Alahha and my Ry if you don't recognize them) Enjoy the little bit of storytime that inspired this picture. Ry has a new look for this piece (You'll find out why if we finish the story for posting).

Ry cracked his knuckles, sliding those blue claws in and out in front of his eyes with the fascination of one who just learned how to speak for the first time. At the flutter of Alahha's tattered wings in the corner of his eyes, he couldn't resist walking up behind the Faerie and sliding his new hands along the familiar subtlely textured surfaces to his shoulder blades where the wings joined his body. So real, so familiar. "Oak village..." He repeated the words absentmindedly, one word standing out in the phrase. "I remember the old oak." He smiled through the fog his mind had been lost in the past few days at the memory of their meeting under the old oak crystalizing in his thoughts.

"It attracts the worse kinds..." He ran his cheek against the back of Alahha's neck, the mercurial nature of his memories refitting themselves causing him to crave that touch more than anything. Touching Alahha's wings sent the tingling effect of that shimmering dust along his fingers and to his shoulderblades where the silvery substance traced a webbing of delicate wings in the air and just as quickly disappeared.

You know how much I LOVE this picture, and it's not just because it's my favorite pairing EVER. Ry's expression is so perfect for the scene - it's exactly as I imagined it. It's blissful, yet still laden with the pain of just being reborn as a vampire. He's had to go through so much just to be in that place, against his lover's back, at long last. He quite near literally went through hell just to be with Alahha again, and his expression shows that. It also has almost that slight 'feline sneer.' And, of course, well all know feline just fits Ry in so many ways ^_^

Ry's wings - I remember the first 'version' of them, and how you were dissatisfied with them, but after working on them for a little while longer, I think you got them exactly as they were meant to be. They look perfect - pale, slightly shimmery, and about to disappear just as quickly as they appeared.

Of course, I love Alahha's expression as well. He looks so strangely gentle, which is an expression you see with him only when he's with Ry. And you can quote me on that

But what's wrong with a big Alahha. He seems so much more dominant that way XD which is funny, since we figured they're about the same height.

*pets the kitty and tells him how good he is*

Ahhh, this is awesome! I love the way they fit together. ^^ And the colors are brilliant, very good workwith copics especially if you're unfamiliar with them!! His skin must be my favorite part... or that wing.

Wow, amazing. I love the colouring and shading on Ry's skin, especially on his arms. The wings have brilliant detail, they look very delicate. I really love the whole piece, the expressions, their poses, it really captures the story visually. I couldn't have imagined a better picture in my own mind.

Wow... this is gorgeous Ang... this is possibly one of the best pieces I've seen from you.. brenda's influence is obviously very good for you! Ry's face and anatomy are amazing, I love his expression. And that glimmer of wings... wow... almost Froudish. Be-a-u-tiful.
