The Night and the Light by Mahogany-Fay The Night and the Light by Mahogany-Fay
(Originally "Le jour et la Nuit" (day and night) but "Light" sounds better in English.)
From an idea by who said once these chars are like day and night. I found it beautiful, and so true. It's the second try for the picture as the first finished in the trash (and it's really rare for me to do this). I truly wanted to do something great with this, and something I could be happy with.
It took me a really long time to do. ^^ I'm quite proud now. Well... It's still not perfect. ^^;
While colouring this, some words came to my mind... And I started writting a poem about it. Really the words came so easily. *_* I wanted it meanigful and wrote this with my heart, maybe it's the reason. It's not the best poetry in the world but I hope you like.
___________________________________

He is the night
Cold and dark
Sharp eyes biting my heart at each sight
But gloomy as the cloud-hidden moon
All is sadness and loneliness

I am the light
Shining and bright
Swift as the wind of noon
Bringing joy and warmth
Among all I love

But slowly the darkness of night
Comes to my heart
And slowly
It becomes darker, gloomy
As you're everything in my life my love
My light declines in your shadow

Your suffering gains me
And I suffer
For you and for me

I would just like
That one day it would be reversed
That the day would chase the night
And the light would chase the dark
See the gleam of dawn
Caressing your face
So you can be for real
And live in full light
With no fears anymore

This is wonderful! Not only do the characters look great, but the way you framed them and the style with which you did the background is lovely! I love the way the sun, moon, and dragon pillars look! Beautiful poem as well. :)

C'est réussi, il y a beaucoup de recherche dans le décor (quel courage !), et j'aime bien les persos. Je précise que j'ai beaucoup apprécié ton poème qui est touchant, et en plus en anglais (déjà que c'est dur d'écrire un poème en français !).. Chapeau, on sent que ça vient du coeur, et ça m'a parlé.

Merci beaucoup! ^^ Bizarrement j'arrive mieux à ecrire en anglais pour ce genre de chose. Je trouve ça moins bizarre que quand j'ecris dans ma langue maternelle, j'ai toujours l'impression que c'est bancal. ^^;

Ben.......je vais un peu casser l ambiance mais........j aime pas les lignes......le dessin est tres joli ds la compo, ds les couleurs aussi, mais j ai l imprression que tu t es pas appliquée pr les persos (enfin c est l impression que j ai....) Désolée, je sais que tu y tiens à ce dessin TT________TT

ben oué tu casses l'ambiance vilaine! Si je me suis appliquée sur les persos. Mais je vois ce que tu veux dire, je disais que ct pas encore parfait ce dessin hein. Je veux dire a la base sur le sketch les persos auraient pu etre mieux, enfin ils étaient mieux sur la premiere version. (la premiere version avait un decor moche et bcp plus simple^^; ) j'aurais ptete du coller les deux.... :/

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!! That picture!~!!!!!!!!

It's so beautiful! The color, the details, the symbols, the faces and poses.....

:cries: I love these two! And I love you, too, for making Myu at least and being so tenderly devoted to them! When someone cares about their creations as much as you do, it is easy to love them too! >_<
