I think I finished this at the end of last year or the beginning of this year, and I was going to save it for the next art book, but these days I don't really feel like there's any reason to save up anymore haha! I liked this drawing a lot, I hope you do too (:

Someone answer me, are the lesbians or not?! I'm still reading the manga and when I see Shilin's scraps I'm like -.- . So, are they?!
shilin Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
please take all of my art as alternate universe situations that have nothing to do with the actual story! I've been working on the story for 10+ years, if I try to keep every drawing canon to the story, I would be making very boring art with all the same story as well as probably spoiling the story to people who are new to reading.

wow this is probably one of my favorite poses so far. Amazing composition

Oh wow look at that skin. His hand clasping her breast reminds me of Pluto's hand on Proserpina's thigh in El Rapto De Proserpina. You've rendered the skin through the hand elegantly.

Will they get together? :I This question haunts my thoughts... Just started reading your Manga and I'm obsessed with everything you do. (The irony):P
Lw25 Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2014
As far as I know, in some interview, Shilin have said, that they won't be couple. Also, I can't see any reasons for Veloce to be with SR-71. And to be honest, she was the most open with guys (well, boys), Keritzel and this child molestation victim... Also, she is very desperate to find Vocuren. She clearly likes guys more than girls. Compare how she acts with boys and with e.g. Weirin.
But... I will be honest. I can't wait to see some love in this comic... Love 

And now, I will be terrible. Scene like this, but in the comic, would be very painfull for Veloce... Giggle  Reasons are in the rest of the text. God, I'm awful... I think I've fainted. 
Actis01 Featured By Owner May 18, 2016
I doubt it, I think she prefers females. Look at how many shipping art Shiling has created with her and Blackbird, and like 2 with her and Vocruen. She herself said that she ships them (Veloce and Blackbird).

Truly charming and sensual work, Shilin! There's a statuesque, almost neoclassical quality to this one. I've been reading Carciphona for a while now and follow your Tumblr, but I think this is the first I've taken time to peruse your DA galleries. There's a lot of elegant and whimsical work throughout. My compliments.

_(:'3 J__L i just pray that there would have some hints between blackbird and veloce, you know something they call it fanservice? ◕ ʜ ◕) huehue

Their hair is always too perfect ;^)
No one can deny Blackbird's black-and-white style is amazing~

I love your arts, keep that up, I'll never have enough n_n
yellowhub Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2014
I was looking forward to your new drawing , well i am not disapointed ! :)
It s very touching and à warm picture
Hé holds her gently but at thé same time you don t know if there is something behind (she has tied hands...)
It s à thé light and shadow melting don, merging, fusing together
Like thé symbols such as his White and black hair :)
You did an amazing job with the wings ? It s confusing (you don t know whose wings is it, the boy or thé girl ) but at thé same time it doesn t bother you much
There is an amazing depth in thé picture , the wings fill thé space without Sufocating thé space (taking too much space)
Your drawing is breathing
Finally the light is beautiful and gentle
Your drawing is touching me déplu, i like it à lot well done
(Hope you will answer me ^^)
happymeday Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
