Dammit, I feel like I ruined a perfectly good sketch. >:U I also like how I just spent a lot of money on markers, and the first piece of art I do post-con is entirely inks. DOOP DOOP.Anyway, Canta creeps on his host Tohru because he's a horrid little shit. Also, gore for some reason.

I'll be babbling about this picture and some con nonsense on my blog shortly.

Tohru and Canta are © Me. Materials: 5.5"x8.5" watercolor cold press paper, sumi ink, acrylic ink, ballpoint pen, walnut ink, some bleedy purple and red gel pens, uchida markers.

A lot of the fine lines and details in this picture were done with ballpoint pens and a couple of different pencils. I usually fineline last so I can clean up the edges of my work and make it look like I'm better at painting than I actually am, haha.

Thank you!

This really is a wonderful piece of traditional art, I do not normally like gore; but I do enjoy the tasteful and and rather visually appealing way you have it here (not to much, just enough to set a genre of fantasy/horror in my mind).

I like gore, but I sort of feel like for it to have impact that it needs to be done a bit more subtly than just an explosion of guts. Guts are great, but it's not all I want to look at, you know? Thank you very much! :heart:

This was the one I saw on tumblr, actually. I was briefly confused. "What is this? Is he eating him? Kissing him? Hugging? Are those his intestines, why can I see his bones. Why do I want to eat all these colors. Why are his horns so perfect looking. I MUST WATCH THIS PERSON."

I am not specifically a huge fan of gore, but your art is so gorgeous.

Aw, thank you!

I'm actually a fan of gore, but I like it to make sense and be used sparingly for it to have full effect. After years of watching horror films with exploding guts, I feel like so many directors don't actually consider the human body and what goes on inside it. As long as there is enough blood and random flying debris to make a person shrink away in terror, that reaction is all that is cared about. It kind of bugs me. I also have a hard time trying to articulate my feeling on this matter, ha ha ha. xD

But for kissing/eating/hugging? I'd say all of the above. :D

Wow I love it *3* It's just the right amount of gore, doesn't distract from the beauty~
