Unspoiled: Swimming Lessons by janey-jane Unspoiled: Swimming Lessons by janey-jane
After reading chapter 37 of Unspoiled I was utterly charmed by the idea of Kagome teaching little Sesshoumaru how to swim. I didn't know if Forthright was ever going to actually write said scene, but I couldn't help doodling it anyway (Forthy has indicated that swimming lessons are indeed forthcoming :) )

I've done wraps similar to what Kagome is wearing with simple lengths of cloth, and Sess is supposed to be wearing fundoshi (but its sort of hard to see). Also - ankle stripes a la chapter 66 of Imperceptible :D

ALSO - if you like my SessXKag art you might be interested in my profile over on Dokuga [link]
I post stuff there that, for various reasons, doesn't make it to DA.

there is a pretty good chance that i will. i never really 'abandon' ships, i just sort of.... migrate. but then all of the sudden i'll find myself back at the old ship. it happens. but not predictably.

Usually I'm too lazy to comment, but this is beautiful. You.... you pwn. You're made of win. You just. AWESOME.
And I'm in love with Unspoiled. SRSLY.
I'm calm because there's no words to describe how awesome it is.
Anyway, I suppose I'll stop being a bother. :3 buh-bye!

This is absolutely beautiful! The style reminds me of really old Chinese drawings and I love how the style of eyes and touches to Kagome make her a beauty while Sess is his eternal handsome self. I love the colors, the effects in the clouds, grass & swimsuit.

I do have a feeling that Kagome might have to coax him into the water. CUTE.

coax? or bribe? and will it come back to bite her in the future? ;)

First of all: Awwwwww; little Sesshoumaru is so adorable! I love how you added his ankle stripes as well. :aww: I adore Unspoiled and it's always wonderful to see fanart of it, especially from you. Not only do you make their faces expressive but their bodies as well. Poor little Sesshoumaru looks a bit uneasy about the water, while Kagome tries to gently reassure and encourage him into it (though not too obviously; she wouldn't want to hurt his pride. XD). After seeing this, I really hope Forthright does write a chapter with Kagome teaching Sesshoumaru how to swim, even if it's a one-shot written separately from the story. =)

:+fav: Wonderful job! :love:

ahaha, I'm terrible is what happened. I was all set to be a commission demon and then I got steamrolled by all of this freelance illustration work. So that's what I've been doing (along with job-hunting, man is that humbling, I haven't been rejected this much since....ever.)
