Kojituu & Yvannale for THESE TWO amazing and adorable people!
Verceri had to send me a message to let me know she ‘doodled’ something for me; I am very grateful she did because if I found this out by myself with no warning I’m not sure how I would’ve handled it. PROBABLY NOT MUCH BETTER THAN I HANDLED VERCERI’S MESSAGE, I SWITCHED TABS, NERVOUSLY SWEATING, WONDERED IF I COULD ACTUALLY SCHEDULE IN ‘EMOTIONAL COMPROMISE’ IN MY DAY. 10AM: VOLUNTARY EXTERMINATION OF MY SOUL.
I’M JUST?? IT’S LIKE WHEN THE ANGEL GABRIEL OR W/E CAME DOWN 2 MARY LIKE YO LIL MAMA LEMME WHISPER IN YO EAR U COOL GIRL STAY COOL GOD THINKS UR COOL AND (I ACTUALLY GOOGLED FOR THIS STORY TO MAKE MY ANALOGY, OK, APPRECIATE IT) MARY WAS ‘GREATLY TROUBLED’ AND ‘WONDERED WHAT THIS GREETING MEANT’ OR SOMETHING YEAH THAT WAS ME?? ME. I WAS GREATLY TROUBLED AND WONDERED WHAT THIS MEANT. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN. ‘DOODLED’ ‘SOMETHING’. WHAT I AM TRYING TO SAY HERE IS THAT I THINK, I MEAN, LOOK, I DON’T KNOW FOR CERTAIN, NO ONE KNOWS FOR CERTAIN, BUT I AM PRETTY SURE, LIKE, 98% SURE THAT I KNOW HOW MARY FELT WHEN SHE WAS TOLD SHE WAS GONNA GIVE BIRTH 2 JESUS. IT FELT LIKE THIS.
I’m just ??? ??? ??? ??? high pitched whining noise that is used in almost every movie ever when everyone is on a spacecraft or a ship or a car that’s about to crash and the entire scene is silent except for the whining noise which is then succeeded by the sounds of an explosion, that’s actually also appropriate for the kind of sound my soul is making right now I’M??? BURSTS INTO A DAYCARE, CUSSES EVERYONE OUT REALLY LOUDLY BEFORE SPRINTING AWAY, I AM SO DONE HERE, GOOD BYE. HOW DO I ENTER VOLUNTARY ISOLATION FROM THE HUMAN RACE?? PEOPLE ARE TOO GOOD TO ME AND I CAN’T HANDLE IT, I’M SO [CATFIGHT NOISES IN DISTANCE]
I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO START WITH THIS?? VERCERI IS ONE OF MY FAVOURITE ARTISTS (AS I AM SURE SHE KNOWS, AND I THINK EVERY TIME SHE DRAWS ME SOMETHING, IN DESPERATION I TRY TO REMIND HER OF THIS FACT BECAUSE IT’S LIKE PLEASE YOU ARE ALREADY ONE OF MY FAVOURITE ARTISTS, PLEASE DO NOT EVER DRAW FOR ME AGAIN, THAT’S ENOUGH FROM YOU, it is enough of an honour 2 just LOOK at your work) SO I’M JUST LIKE, face crumbles in on itself as I begin to cry from all my orifices at once.
YELLING I LOVE VERCERI’S STYLE SO MUCH, I JUST, FRICKIN LOOK AT THIS?!?! I have never seen anyone work lines the way that she does, the way she does her lines is one of my favourite things in the whole world, better than candy and puppies or candy puppies, tbh. It has nothing to do with the brushes she uses, it’s JUST THE WAY THAT SHE DRAWS which you can’t emulate, I am crying.
God the way these two are stylised is so GOOD I just, I really love their builds, I love the way the lines show form and detail but it’s not TOO MUCH detail, it’s not too busy! I like that this maintains a sense of realism without being too overbearing, there is such a good balance between stylistic choice and between incorporating naturalistic elements, I am so impressed. The attention to detail to things like their claws, and the shape of Koji’s bowtie, and Yvanna’s wings, and the little tufts of fur, and their ears, I’m just, I CANNOT STOP STARING?? I ONLY STOP STARING TO WIPE AWAY TEARS FROM MY EYES TBH.
THE INTERACTION BETWEEN THESE TWO ARE JUST??? KILLING ME SOFTLY. Oh my God both their expressions are the sweetest things, I like that their body language and poses really emphasise the overall feel of the image, their taILS WRAPPING AROUND EACH OTHER, THE FACT THEIR EARS MAKE A HEART SHAPE?? I AM MAKING THE MATING CALLS OF FIVE DIFFERENT ANIMALS RIGHT NOW, THERE IS NO PART OF ME THAT CAN HANDLE THIS, ALL THE CELLS IN MY BODY REARRANGE THEMSELVES TO SPELL OUT ‘NO’, YOU TAKE A SAMPLE OF TISSUE FROM ME AND AS YOU ADJUST THE MICROSCOPE’S FOCUS IT IS JUST AN ENDLESS STREAM OF ‘NO’
Yvanna’s wings are just so PERFECT, HELP ME GOD, the fact they look like real butterfly wings is so beautiful, I love the way that the patterns of her wings (which I often change, she doesn’t have a set wing pattern or a real set in stone way of drawing her wings at all) are subtly incorporated. Her wings look so delicate, and look like stained glass, I love them!
The COLOURING IS SO GOOD I JUST, GOD, this kind of colouring is my absolute favourite, it always reminds me of watercolours? Of paint? The kind of mixed cell-shade-mixed-painter-style type of colouring here is just PERFECTION, this is done so flawlessly and with everything blended so well I’m just, tears leaking outta my eyes like I’m the subject of the Mona Lisa seeing the Mona Lisa for the first time, I have stopped trying to wipe away my tears, I just sit here tears streaming down my face, what’s wrong May, nothing, I say but then I turn around and I whisper ‘verceri’.
The simple heart background with the light texture overlay is such a great way to offset the characters, too, god this piece just WORKS SO WELL IN TERMS OF COMPOSITION? IN TERMS OF EVERYTHING IT JUST HITS ALL THE RIGHT NOTES IN THE BEST WAY, IT’S SUCH A PRIVILEGE TO LOOK AT SOMETHING SO BEAUTIFUL, LET ALONE HAVING THE PRIVILEGE TO KNOW THAT IT IS FOR ME, GROSS SOBBING.
I JUST??? I FRICKIN LOVE THIS SO MUCH I AM HAVING THE WORST KIND OF EMOTIONAL MELTDOWN OVER THIS, I CAN’T COPE. I frickin texted Sarah @ work to let her know about this, I really should have called her, made her think this was an emergency (IT IS AN EMERGENCY.) Oh my God I cannot thank you enough for this, you are honestly the biggest sweetheart and such an inspiration, I’M JUST?? I AM REALLY UNDESERVING BUT I ALSO FEEL REALLY LUCKY AND FLATTERED AND HONOURED THAT YOU WOULD SPEND SO MUCH TIME AND CARE ON SOMETHING FOR US, I AM SO INCREDIBLY TOUCHED. TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL. THE ANGEL IS YOU. (AND MY ANALOGY THAT I BEGAN WITH HAS COME FULL CIRCLE, BLESS. GOD BLESS, MORE LIKE.)
ALSO THE AMAZING DESIGNS BUT she’s so cute and sincere!! i love her from far far away
