Touch: SessxKag by janey-jane Touch: SessxKag by janey-jane
From chapter 8 of RosieB's (aka: ReplicantAngel) The Once and Future Taiyoukai. She's one of those incredibly supportive and encouraging people that make you glad you found a fandom. I have about 50 sketches from this story lying around and decided it was high time I finished something.

I had Kagome in a really pretty kimono until I realized that for the timing of the story she would more likely be in loose Heian-era robes. And my historic-accuracy anal-retentiveness made me re-dress her.

If you haven't read The Once and Future Taiyoukai you can find it here: www.fanfiction.net/s/3153922/1…

I have seen your work before, but I thought that I should say that I love all your stuff. Not just your fanart. Your lines are so delicate and expressive! I hope I can draw like you some day. :blush:

wow thank you! and I 100% believe anyone can get to where they want to be artistically! It's hard to stay motivated and not get discouraged sometimes, but if you can stick with it you'll get there (I found that filling ....*counts* 20-25 sketchbooks over the past 15 years or so really helped, and if I'd filled more I bet my art skills would have grown even more!

You're welcome, thank you so much for responding. 20-25 sketchbooks sound like a lot, but I bet it goes faster than I think. I'm really determined to get better so thank you so much for the advice, I really appreciate it. :hug: It was very nice to get a response from you.

Of course! It's always really discouraging to see where you WANT to be and then look at where you are - the gap always seems impossible to close (and that feeling never goes away, as far as I can tell!). Keeping sketchbooks also has the added benefit of serving as a visual record - sometimes when I'm feeling really down about my art, and feeling like I haven't improved at all in a million years, I'll pick up one of my sketchbooks from 3 or 4 years ago and it's tactile proof that I HAVE improved; the slow, incremental improvement is hard to appreciate while you're living it.

You just wrote everything I feel about making art, basically. :giggle: I appreciate you being so candid. At least I know that even awesome artists like you still want to improve. It is hard to understand that I am improving even when I can see that my art is definitely way better than it was a few years ago and I'm sitting here just wanting to be better, darn it.

Sorry for the delayed response btw, I hope everything is going well with you. :)

I love love love this scene! I'm so glad there are those fic that people continue to love. There are stories that I first read over 10 years ago for fandoms I'm not even involved in anymore, and I still go back and reread them every once in a while.

This is very beautiful as well. There are others good artists out there, but don't think little of yourself. I am in love with your style here. Every meticulous details on the sketch (I doubt we can call it a sketch anymore) make the art look amazing... And I don't know why I didn't praise you when I last saw this a while ago.
Any, I want to ask, was most of this piece done on sheets or on a tablet?

There is so much emotion captured here. Seriously, I love it.
I love how you portray Sesshomaru; it is probably one of the best that I have seen so far, because you really capture that stern demeanour of his, while retaining his regal bearing...I seriously love everything this lkndskmgk,dfgdfg

I love sess as a character, but if you keep him true to character it's hard to draw him 'in love', if you know what I mean. If you get rid of his reserve and regal dignity you lose a lot of what makes him, him. I'm glad you think I got it right!

Your art is so perfect it made me be hateful towards real men. I want my mate to be like Sesshoumaru. -Falls over her knees.- Life, why do you hate me so much!!!!

Honest speaking, your art always draws a detailed smile on my face. ♥

I really like this picture....I like this story as well and have read it quite a few times and recently re read it after seeing this pic (with every new piece of artwork I see depicting a scene from this story I re read it) I liked the seemingly unnoticed details like the floor and Kagomes hair and how much different it is from sesshomarus not only in color but texture as well. I think you did a really good job in this picture.

As for Kagome, perhaps he would enjoy his delirium a little more, he thought. He pulled her tightly to his chest and brought his lips to her ear. "You are the most precious creature in the world to me, Kagome. I am no fool." HOLLY SHIT

That's a good way of putting it - I think that's one of thereasons I like the story so much - because its not all smut all the time. It lets the romance develop slowly.
