Come Away With Me by Saimain Come Away With Me by Saimain
My entry for =Shiaine's "Emotions" contest, which you can read about here: [link] The deadline is coming up soon, but there's still time for more entries! *prod prod* ^__^

I've been meaning to draw gift-art for Eline for the longest time, and her contest was the perfect excuse. I tried to capture the loneliness and haunting fear in her character Kailah, a captive queen, and comfort and hope in Lava, who means to steal her away with him to a golden land.

Mechanical pencil and Photoshop 5.5. It seems all I can do these days are glorified sketches...

Oh, they're lovely! I want to give Kailah a hug. *gives her a hug* Captive royalty always makes me sad, for some reason.

I like your glorified sketches. ^^ They're pretty.

I think this is a wonderful piece, and captures the emotions you were seeking to convey with skill. I especially love the expression on Kailah's face, but for both character's the lips and eyes especially work together to really make it clear what they're feeling. I wish you the best of luck in the contest. :)

Adele... You took my breath away with this. You captured their characters so perfectly - lmao, you're able to do it better than me! Her expression is so well-drawn, her despair can be felt by the viewer and her entire appearance enhances this feeling: her messy hair and clothes as if she no longer cares about appearance. She fears her husband and Lava offers her the needed escape. He looks so gentle, loving and encouraging, which is exactly what he is to her.

You're actually the only person to use my characters so far, and seeing them portrayed by others is always amazing - especially when they look better than ever, as they do here! (Although the usage of the word 'better' is debatable in Kailah's case, heh. Poor girl) Thank you so much for this, finding it in my inbox truly brightened my day and brought a wide smile to my face.

I wish you the best of luck in the contest... And thanks again :heart: I'm honoured to receive such an amazing gift ;D

Ooo gotta always love that whole "captive and the kidnapper" scenario (whether or not the kidnapper is actually the rescuer hero or the villain).

Very beautiful! (As usual!) I can definitely feel the emotion from this. Excellent display of personalities and the general mentality of the victim verses the redeemer/one who brings hope! The body language really adds to everything! :)

No one is actually kidnapped here :) Kailah married her king of her own free will, not recognising his madness beforehand and genuinely loving him. Yet, she became trapped by her duties and her mad husband in this prison of a castle, so I suppose that although it's not kidnap, she is definitely captured in a way.

Lava is only her husband's captive, whom she confides in and seeks solace with.

Thanks for the information!! Very interesting and lovely characters you have! :)

It's always so said when there is happiness in a marriage but then things seem to go wrong, one not sure if they regret more and feel sad more than happy, but that love is still there. But these characters of yours a beautiful! :) I definitely will have to read about them more!
