Thoughts of a Maid by Saimain Thoughts of a Maid by Saimain
An illustration from 2003 that still makes me smile when I look at it, despite the anatomy flaws. Faeren and his maid Jessy. They're secretly in love with each other, but one is too shy and the other too humble to admit it. :)

You can learn more about Faeren, Jessy and "The Wars of Avenan" storyline here: [link]

Faeren and Jessy are copyright İme

I absolutly love you work! and I really like snoots! but I had a question about this picture! I have always wondered if it's the thoughts of the maid as in she's thinking of him or thoughts of a maid as in he's thinking of her.

If they're inlove with each other, it's extremely doubtful they are not aware. It's just that... in the world of romance, imo, you need to say those three words for that last bit of reassurance.

I did not say that they were not aware, only that they won't admit it, especially at this part of the story. :)

Always been one of my favourites! Fantastic! (Although personally, I think all hot boys should be in love with other hot boys, but that could just be me...^^; ) Gorgeous drawing and shading skills as always! One day I hope to be this good.

The composition is great!

You could perhaps do one the other way round with Jessy in the forground and Faeren framed in the background by the tree..? Just a thought..

Anyway, brilliant stuff as usual :ahoy:

I love the way you do backgrounds. All your pieces--beyond being PERFECTLY drawn--look so classy and professional, they just attract the eye. They're very beautiful.

I love all your drawings.

I want to tell you that I use this picture to make an other one myself, with an other character. I mention that you have drawn the original picture. Maybe you will want mine ?

I like Faeren's pose and expression. And his outfit and sword. And Jessy's pose and dress. And all the grass and trees. And the circle border. :)
