Child by andrivette Child by andrivette
I'm submitting this before I chicken out...

THIS IS WHY I SHOULD NEVER BE ALLOWED TO PLAY WITH COLORS, NEVER EVER EVER

cuz frankly, I don't know what I'm doing with them. XD

Okay anyway, this is my submission for :iconhieixmukuro: club's contest. I chose this theme NOT because they're having a child... if anyone thought about that... (I actually didn't consider the possibility of that assumption until way later. XD)

I chose this theme because this is how I see their relationship. They're adults, but when it comes to love, they're two children fumbling around in the dark. They've gone their whole lives not knowing what love is, and only now are they learning what hope and joy truly is. With baby steps, they're learning to open up to each other, letting down barriers slowly. They've been learning to rebuild their lives to accept simple caring. It's what they want, but it's not what they understand. They can't go by anyone's standard of a relationship, because they simply have their own.

That's how I see it, anyway. :3 I hope you enjoy!
I also gave her 2 boobies... cuz it was easier that way...

And I have one final note for you all...

I'm in love with the concept you were after =)
I completely agree on your take of the word because there's no better way to understand these characters on their emotional side than what you explained. =)

The art is beautiful! I like this palette of colors very much, and their expressions are lovely! You did a great work with them.

Good luck! =D

I was sitting there for a while looking for the child and then I stared at Mukuro like, "Dude is she preggers?"

Then I grew a brain and read the description and figured it out. I think your explanation of their relationship pretty much hits the nail on the head. They've lived for so long without living at all. You know?

And a final thought: ...Mukuro doesn't have two? I thought she did. It looks like it. Maybe I'm looking wrong.

XD! Silly! It's okay, I do the same thing X.x

Thanks :3

Sometimes she does, sometimes she doesn't. So I do the same, and draw her both ways at random intervals. XD

I would like to second everything ~Greenfeldspar said--I completely agree with your analysis of their relationship. I will admit that I hadn't expected the theme you chose to be taken figuratively, but for these two, it works best that way.

As I've already told you, the sunset is absolutely beautiful, and you did a wonderful job coloring Hiei and Mukuro because they fit very fluidly into the picture--they don't look out of place at all. I think my favorite part of this is their expressions...for once, they look happy and at ease, things they never got to feel as children. I love this. Beautiful work! :heart:

Thank you :'3 I'm glad you agree too!

Thanks, I was worried about the coloring... (Which I'm sure you know from all the bitching I did last night XD!) I love that part of it as well, getting to see them just genuinely enjoying each others' company. :heart:

I think your observation that Hiei and Mukuro are like children is very perceptive. Neither of them really had a chance to be children; they were thrown into an unforgiving world with no protectors and were forced to cope. They had no one to teach them love and compassion, and instead were left to discover these important things fairly late in life. That's why I think, as you do, that the depth of understanding these two characters share is unparalleled.

The work you did on the sky is truly lovely. I also like the soft, desaturated colours on both figures, and the body language. It's definitely a painting to be proud of! The composition is simple but striking, making for an impressive whole.

I'm glad you agree! I relate to them on several levels so they're a pairing that I truly enjoy for many reasons. <3

Thank you so much! :D The sky is probably my favorite part.
