I have to say though, what's with all the Alexander porn?
There's no Alexander PORN, really, it's just that she's an Alexander fangirl! :)

Coming together very nicely, Arkillian!  As always, amazing work!

I have to say though, what's with all the Alexander porn?  Lol...it seems just a tad excessive.  You're about 2 steps away from an Alex and Edgar makeout pic.  ;)

Uh- it's not porn ^^; I think you have the wrong definition of porn there hon. The picture wasn't meant to be  explicit in any way (Nor in a boy love for that matter). It was meant to be a tasteful nude from a scene in the game that panned out in this exact way. I linked it as a thumbnail as sometimes a scene with a naked guy with another guy can make people uncomfortable (It's easy to think it'll turn into into a boylove picture nowdays with all the shounen ai out there- Admittedly, I am a fan of the genre, but it wasn't my intention here). I didn't realize till after I posted it that the scene in the game was meant to be shirtless only ^^; I still like it better this way cause putting something on the bottom half A- doesn't make sense (he'll wet his clothes! what'll he change into?) and B- Doesn't look aesthetic cause the pants would break the flow of the picture. Admittedly, all my art has Alexander in it somewhere, but I'm a fangirl of his- we knew this already, right? :) I'm sorry if it shocked you. I tried to put as much warning on it as I could so people knew what to expect from the picture. The naked body to me in art is an aesthetic so perhaps I look at things differently to my viewers. It's all those life drawing classes XD

Hah- anime style... That's the first time someone has directly called it that! Thank you :) My art style I guess is heavily influenced by anime, but sadly the anime community don't believe so >.> I like to think of mine as a hybrid of Eastern and Western. The fact that I'm closer to Western is more apparent when I use pencil like in this picture of Sweeney Todd. My comic style gives away my love for manga more XD

I use to draw like Akira Toriyama (artist of DBZ) for a long while- I blame it on that XD

Hmmm... Long response is long...

Coming together very nicely, Arkillian!  As always, amazing work!

Thanks :) I need to decide on a background though T.T I'm thinking yellow. Everything else seems too dark for the picture >.>

Lol...yeah I realize that the pic isn't pornographic per se--but there is something undeniably homoerotic in the way that Alex looks back at Edgar and Edgar acts all breathless.  Alex's come-hither glance seems like the prelude to a steamy night of sexual experimentation that breaks all of Daventry's most traditional rules...

Haha...in all seriousness though, I wasn't offended.  Just amused.

:o
Wow.....
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

Um... I think I get it.... the come hither wasn't directed at Edgar....  ;) *giggles* (Sorry- got carried away with my inner fangirl. It's too easy to romanticize a picture of a character that you've had a crush on since you were 10 XD )

Wow.....

Oh, uh... Here's my gallery on Deviantart for those that want to see non King's Quest art too. I can not guaranty you wont see more provocative nudity or boy love there, but it has all my art, and most of it is PG13 :) If you have mature art off, you'll miss a few REALLY nice pieces of art, but it'll be mostly eye friendly if you find you get offended easily.

Actually, this isn't the first time someone has said one of my artworks was too homo erotic. This page of my comic has alot of controversy cause of that too. Alot of people pause on this page and actually read it XD (Can't complain about that. Damn skimmers not reading mah content >.< )

What's so homoerotic about it?  It's just a guy crying over Diego.  Real men cry!
I have my cake and eat it too, until it's gone.  Then I can't do either.


Aww!  You have the Sword of Hugging +3!  All of your attacks deal affectionate damage!

The original had the fore arm at the bottom too, and apparently that made all the men uncomfortable >.> I ended up taking the arm away and people accepted it better, but it still gets a triple look so people can grab the context. The casual observer could think the same thing of this picture as the page I did there on Alexander.

It's finally finished. I'll end up scanning this instead of taking a photo when I get home, but I don't want to be spammy

Spammy is ok? Alright. I'll post the nicely scanned one when I get home then. It shouldn't be too different to this one- just sharper.

No pressure XD Yes, I think I have an idea for the pregnant!Cassima + Alex pic... It'll possibly be a humour one though O.o

Here's the scan of it. I don't have a clue what colours it is though cause my screen isn't calibrated :/ I hope it's close enough OTL T.T

Back home again. Thought I'd be doing more drawing than I did in Wellington. Too much watching anime and shopping XD Lols. I'll have to see about Pregnant!Cassima.

Thank you :) It's always nicer to see it with no ambient lighting. Cameras always seem to capture art with a warp or a glare :/

I know that scanning isn't always kind to artwork either, but this has worked out nicely.
