L4D2: Commission by sparkyHERO L4D2: Commission by sparkyHERO
Commissioned by :iconnekocrouton:
It's for this story: [link]
And it's a present for the author C:

There I draw a kiss for the first time ever and it's between two guys. For some reason I'm not even surprised.

But you know what the most difficult part of this was? Deciding colors for the damn background. Even after hours of adjustment it still looks weird. It went from light blue to dark red then to green... what you see now is the least distracting color scheme I was able to produce :S

And man... those curtains. I'm sure interior designers all over the world started having violent seizures while I was coloring 'em.

P.s.: Shaved legs and arms because I can't draw separate hairs without them looking like man-eating ants.

I had a mini heartattach because it looked like Ellis and Nick for a second
and then it looked like Spock and Captain kirk
Then Luke and Han Solo
So many heartattacks in one day

See? I knew they had an underlying brolationship... hell, maybe if Shane wasn't such a douche and he'd been there for Rick when Rick was in the hospital then maybe he'd be alive right now >:c

Go figure you'ld be the first person to draw a Nellis picture that I actually really like <.< My Nellis loving best friend is super baffled and fascinated and in awe that you could do this to me.

EXCELLENT JOB, DUDE :D

Man. Why am I surprised and not surprised at the same time?

Dunno about interior designers, but all virginal closet creatures got them tingles
during your cherry-popping man-kissing moment.......

I tried drawing man hair once....looked freaky :\

But yes this picture has made my day. I'm glad you went with a less distracting color for the background.

Okay. So I've literally been trying for a full day to make a comment that appropriately thanks you for this, and everytime I tried it either turned into senseless keyboard-faceplanting or incoherent "OMGOMFHG THANKYOUO MOGM".

This is the first commission I've had gotten for me (or even by me), so needless to say I was incredibly excited to begin with.

And then I saw it.

Let's just say my reaction involved shrieking and being so unable to actually function that if I hadn't compromised and pulled it up in a separate window in the corner of my screen so I could glance dreamily at it every few minutes, I would've gotten nothing done but stare the whole night.

I love this, so much. I love the pose and the graspyhands, and the blush on El's face and the kiss. I love the background and the lighting and if I talk any longer I'm going to start keyboard-facing again. C: C: C:

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. So much justice done to the mood of the moment and what I would've wanted this kiss to emanate. C:

OH MAN
I'm late with my reply.
Always most anxious to know what the recipients of these pictures think C:

And man, am I relieved to hear that you enjoyed it.
Aaah, incoherent keyboard bashing mostly shows emotions in the raw, so I wouldn't have minded that at all xD

Got me showered in compliments and that warm sense of accomplishment with your comment. Thank you very much for that.

So I'm glad to say that a follow up/part two/someting is going to be uploaded in a few moments C:

I should've.
But I was afraid it'd have been too much a distraction from the main focus of the picture.
That being man-smooching.

Oooh well.
Washed out hospital colors. That should be a palette of that somewhere D:

AnthroMuffin Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2012
I think the palette for hospital colours is along the lines of chrome, since everything is suppose to feel very sterile and neutral.

svida mi se jako. likovi izgledaju realnije nego u stripovima di su stiliziraniji. i boje su super jer su neutralne i bljede sto nekako pase bolnicama, a to se tice zastora to su bolnice, oni bas ne paze na unutarnju dekoraciju. i na kraju to su dva tipa koji se ljube, mislis li da ce itko primjetiti pozadinu?

MEEEEH, ali je malo (hhahah, puuno) perspektiva zeznuta. To se nak bolje vidi na desnoj nozi od prednjeg lika. Planirao crtati vise odozgo ali se negdje u sredini promijenila stvar, hah

HAHAH! DA, to sa zastorima je istina. Tako je skoro u svim javnim ustanovama xD
Ali mi je drago da ti se svidza.
