For every action.... by headraline For every action.... by headraline
A truly dramatic scene, for those who know what's happening and who the hell are those two people.
I brushed off the dust from my fantasy vein and made this fanart for the awesome Order of the Stick [link] , a webcomic by Rich Burlew... I've been following it ever since... what, 2006? maybe even more, and yet, only now I muster up the guts to do fanart about it.

The occasion is strip #641, [link] where Vaarsuvius, androgynous elven wizard, faces his/her no less androgynous mate, Inkyrius, after 'selling' his/her soul to demons in order to save him/her and their adopted children from an angry Black dragon...
...and finds said mate terrified of him/her and trying -rather foolishly- to fend him/her off with a twig.

The whole arc is really touching and quite different from what the comic had been so far, since it's mostly a comedic/satyric comic... even more so because V had never before displayed such strong feelings... it made me so sad at the time... é_è

...anyway, here it is, Vaarsuvius and Inkyrius during their last meeting so far. <3
Lineart and coloring with Paint Tool Sai, a little bit of PS for some effects.

p.s. I'm sorry if the pronouns are confusing, but I don't have the slightest idea about which one is male or female, they could be both females or both males. Only the Giant knows the truth. XD

Loved this scene.
Even more with the kids by the side with their frigging legs broken.
V's character development is awesome.

Inkyrius is crying! Nice detail, but I need a tissue.

well, it would have been perfect if I found a way to include the kids in the drawing... but thank you for your nice words, I worked my ass off to do this, at the time *w*
