Valentine's Zoi

*zombie eyes*

Okay, it was slightly coincidental, but I ended up giving myself that deadline for finishing this drawing. Because I haven't done any drawing in ages, and I have been working at this one for months and I knew I would never finish it if I didn't do it for a special occasion.

Click for bigger version.

Because love at first sight is the meeting of two neuroses, and boy, do these two fit the saying... ♥

I "ripped off" the pose from the second-to-last splash page of this scans_daily post. It's one Supergirl kissing some guy looking suspiciously like Kal-El, but it's not him.

I thought the pose was hot, but would work better with different characters, so... Dude, it was hard "slimming" down pseudo-Kal-El, he has two tons of muscles, it's ridiculous.

"Happy artistic accidents" is hiding the layer containing the black inking, and finding out the drawing looks oddly better that way...

Happy Valentine's Day to the ones I love.

That is a FANTASTIC drawing. Oh my god. I'm in awe.

Zoisite has a cute butt.

Thanks :)
It's always easier when I start from an existing drawing. Strangely, I'm better at fixing proportions and stuff on bases I haven't done myself.

I kept the butt, it's what made me think of Zoisite to begin with ;)

Aww ♥

And man, Zoi has some curves on him.
Feb. 15th, 2007 07:07 am (UTC)
Yeah, I kept him some of the original (female) design, because hm, Zoi has the right to have a muscular round booty, for one, and it looks better, too, IMO.

Really cute! I kind of like it better with the clear outlines, but it still looks great.
Feb. 15th, 2007 07:08 am (UTC)
Thanks :)
It's odd, the clear outlines one, ain't it? Okay, my inking sucked anyway because I haven't drawn in ages and I didn't have the proper tools to ink anymore, but...
Don't know, it looks all poetic like that.

That is so damn HOT. [fans self] Ooh lá lá!

...and yeah. Feel free to slap me for that one. Particularly if I got the grave and acute accents mixed up. Again. XP

It's more that I have never heard anyone French saying "Ooh là là" ;)
Or maybe once, and that one time it actually struck me as strange.

I don't know why it became a supposedly "typical" French sentence for foreigners...

Ha, I still feel embarrassed when I realise the way I giggled when getting on the EuroStar the first time. Most Francophones were saying to me "Pardon, pardon," but one guy said "Excusez-moi" and I started giggling. Because Anglophones use that when they're being kind of sarcastic or patronising, and actually hearing it used properly...sounded out of context to me. God, we suck so much. ^^;; I called Paris today and the guy was so irritated when I asked if he spoke English. Poor man.

As for what foreigners think "typically French"...you probably would like it as much as I like what is considered "typically Kiwi." Heh.

For a moment I thought you'd written "English people use that when they're being kind of sarcastic or patronising", and I was going to ask when they are NOT sarcastic and patronising...

But never mind, I just have had bad experiences of Brits. Lots. Enough to be glad there's a Channel between us, and to know why our countries have been at war so long. It's in the blood.

Yeah, I know a fair share of what is considered "typically French", and I think all of it annoys me.
All the more so because in my family, I was never raised to even know of those national clichés, so... I'm sort of o_O at all of them.

All of my "prejudices" regarding nationalities come from my own experience of dealing with people.
Feb. 19th, 2007 09:45 pm (UTC)
Ahahahahaha, actually, fair enough on the sarcasm front -- English humour really consists of little else. ...well, that and being high on something, whether that be LSD, hash, or pretty coloured crayons. You know.

But yeah, I remember you mentioning that you'd found the Brits to be first class prats. As for the wars...well, I must say when I first got back from Europe I got: "So, how was it?"
"Wonderful! I loved Paris, particularly."
"Did they speak English to you?"
"Yes. Well, those who could did."
"...they must have realised you weren't English."


Which part of France are you from, actually? I remember you mentioning it, but given my lack of comprehension of spoken versus written French thus far, I can't remember it for the life of me. ^^;; And with nationalities...yeah, so far, everyone is pretty much what I expected them to be. It's only a cliché because it's true, huh?

(I love Germans, by the way. :D Although I still do dream of that hot French guy by the train in the Gare de Lyon...not that I could understand why Preetika said: "How do you know he's French?" ZOMG LOOK AT HIM HE'S HOT AND HE'S SO DAMN FRENCH!!! ^_^)

Wonderful! Thanks for sharing.

We need to spread the Shitennou love at any occasion!
Feb. 15th, 2007 02:33 am (UTC)
Wow, that's sexy!!!
Feb. 15th, 2007 07:11 am (UTC)
They're my sexy OTP.
Now I just need to come up with a plotbunny that would lead to such a scene, because their story is so complicated that I can't fit that in the canon...
Feb. 23rd, 2007 03:24 am (UTC)
*_* I wish I could draw like that..!
Feb. 26th, 2007 10:31 am (UTC)
A lot of it is practise, though I haven't practised in a while... I was surprised to even get that far.
And stealing the pose helps a lot, too ^^;,,

"Adapting" others drawings is easier than drawing from scratch, for me. Maybe you could try?
Feb. 26th, 2007 08:07 pm (UTC)
I did a really good one of Goofy from Kingdom Hearts based off a picture of him...but I'm lucky if I can do a stick figure.
Feb. 25th, 2007 08:09 pm (UTC)
Yay! It's prety! I like it! ^^
Feb. 26th, 2007 10:31 am (UTC)
Thanks! :)

I'm always glad to contribute to this fandom, there aren't many fans left so we have to stick together :)

I have a lot of practise for hair and folds ;)

True, true... -nodnod-
