I love it!! That's a wonderful drawing. Definitely my fave fanart I've
seen of them. :D *saves it*
... There's a program called Manga Studio?
There is (It's called ComicWorks in Japan, the #1 comic making program in
e-frontier brought over the program and translated it into English and it's
the best program I've ever used for Inking and Screentoning.
It used to take me DAYS to do a single comic page. Penciling, inking by hand
and then busting out the exacto knife to screen tone (Screentones are like
MangaStudio has built in brush tips to simulate just about any inking too
available from standard G pens to actual sable brushes.
It takes me just a handful of hours now per-page... It's cleaner and more

This is one of the most beautiful fanarts I've ever
seen of Alec and Seregil. Seregil is particularly
gorgeous. I love his hair and the expression on his
face as he gazes at Alec. I like the subtle
differences in their body types too- with Alec being
more muscularly built while Seregil is more slender.
It is much as I imagine them.
So beautiful. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you so much.
It helps to draw when Lynn gives such *good* descriptions of them in the

Oh, that's gorgeous. I love Seregil's hair. And the shirt, and the

Empire waisted trousers on men too, love those but a bit too 'modern' a cut
for how I pictured the state of living in Seregil's "time".
I aimed for a mid to late 1700's "look" (18th century or so.)

'The Standard in Manga & Comic Illustration', according to it's
website. I know some folk who use it, and they've had some pretty good
work come out of it.
Though as always, it's the artist, not the tool, that determines how
well the work will turn out. I've seen amazing things done in MSPaint,
or Crayola Pencils, for example. ;P
Oh yes... I've seen people do things with those on-line Oekaki boards with
just a mouse that have floored me.
It's patience, time, practice and dedication. You have it right.

Beautiful, isn't it? :-)
It's already on the way to the Oreska Gallery for hanging.
And I found the original picture I sent you...
Oh goodness was it BAD (I've come a long way since this picture)
it was dated September 2002 (and I notice I'm still so very unoriginal in
giving things file names....)
This was the original gift art (I cannot believe I'm dragging this out of

I thought it was good once upon a time I suppose.
Proof practice pays off I guess.
