Artwork Description

This picture is a gift for my supporters and anti-supporters. The pretty boys will never stop.Use this picture in any way you want, as long as it's not commercial, and as long as you do not change it. Use it for roleplay, use it on your website, print it on your wall, or just use it as your desktop paper - it's my gift for you. Just remember to link back to me if it's online. And for those anti-supporters among you, feel free to print it on toilet paper and use it like /that/ if you want to. Just stop sending the results of those efforts to me.Love you all, bests,
L.

Yes! Yes! Yes! The corset! **literally jumped up and started dancing around on the seat** Absolutely beautiful, absolutely sexy! The relative face shape and hair..the expression on his face reminds me a lot of Mana from a japanese rock band called Malice Mizer. Wow..the similarties of them both is actually amazing. And I just love the torso. I love the way you can almost see the light shading of his ribs coming out. And the gloves...VERY nice. And the transparent spider hanging down is absolutely amazing. I didn't notice it at first. Though the spider is a bit random. I love the wings...fluffy, dark, rising out from behind him...You know, I think this is my favorite of your works. And I think I just might use this picture for roleplaying. **chuckles** Or suggest it for a friend of mine. **shrugs** There's actually a huge copyright discussion over uses of pictures in the place I roleplay. And it'll be nice to use a picture that the artist blatently stated that you could use it for roleplaying purposes. (your name has come up several times **soft chuckle** few pictures taken down, few pictures ignored, dunno) And now I'm laughing hard at the comments about the similaries that others noticed between jrock/visual kei and your picture. Awesome!

I saw the bigger version. I like the wings, they are very cool... They are the best parts of this picture. The spider is a little strange. I think it is cool too, but seems like a spider what made without references (hmmm:), I think you made it spontaneous, only with your fantasy (and I respect this). Perhaps this is the difference between the parts of your pic. The body and the face seem like if they'd be PS colorized (modified) photos, because they are very detailed and realistic, but the spontaneous parts like the spider and some parts of the hair are more flatted and less detailed. Anyway I like global effect, but I coudn't found any exceptional feature (except the wings)... Sorry it was only a opinion. People are different. I respect your secret:) technic Linda, but perhaps you should make something different. I'd be happy if I could see anything else from you, something what only comes from your fantasy. Good luck to it...

Beautiful work Linda!! I love the spider, the wings and.. well... him! How could anyone in their right mind be against Linda's artwork? >:X Shame on you anti-supporters! If you think you can do better than her, I'd like to see you try! By the way Linda, what inspired you for this picture? (He reminds me of a Japanse Rock star)

*Smiles and curtseys* Thank you.

*Chuckles* Glad you like it =] (removed the extra comments you accidentally left =])

Wow. Simply amazing as always.

I want a harem of all the pretty boys you draw so very badly. ^^

Linda, to the people who do not support you, they need to just shut up and find something else to do. I have loved your art work since I first saw it on elfwood. I just wish I had HALF your talent, hehe. Keep it up!

Thank you =]I have named the character Katelekai. He is a regent of a people of Shadow creatures.

Guest's picture

Wow Linda ......He is one gorgous man.
He would be perfect for my friends role playing character. I will make sure he links he page back to you. I must ask if she have a name in mind for this yummy dude? Hehe....I love the body
::is just drooling: How you thought of making your own webpage?

enayla's picture

You're quite welcome =) Thank you so much.The picture you're looking for is Kathesun. I won't upload him to Epilogue, but I'll probably put him up on my webpage when that is done =)

enayla's picture

Lots of people have commented on the Rocky Horror factor =] I'm glad. Thank you very much =D

enayla's picture

*chuckles* I bet there are boys like this in Sweden, it's just that they're hidden in jeans and t-shirts. Thankee.

enayla's picture

*giggles* Heheh, I'd like a garden like that, too. Thankee, Dan =]

I don’t think I’m beyond them. It’s a style, and it’s just not a style I’ve grown too fond of - which doesn’t mean that it’s not every bit as difficult, if not more so, than what I do =] . And... this world is filled with a good many wonderful people - some of which I know and adore, and a lot of which I’ve never met, but would love it if our paths crossed one day. You speak too highly of me - like I have said before, and will say again - I’m really just a girl doing what she likes to do =). Thank you though.

oh goodness.
you know...if i had a site i would definately put this on there and link you.
just so you know.
oh...and as soon as i get the money for it i am going to sew a corset just like that. Smile
hmm...i wish there could be boys like that in sweden. det hade inte varit helt fel, no? Smile

beswick's picture

Teehee. Still love it.

*snickers* And it's still the corset/loincloth/dress/whatever the heck that thing is that does it for me, too. Wink

And the gloves, of course... and the WINGS! I always love the slightly stylized way you do wings, but these in particular are great. They look so... cuddly! =D

Heh. And not to forget the boy, himself. ;]

Hmmm. I want a black grassed gardern like that when I grow up.

Daaaaum...I have to say I've admired all the art you have put up in the past and occasionally gawked and wiped the drool from my lips from time to time as well...But this is just amazing. I don't know if it was simply the raw battered emotion coming out of you when you did it or...heh...my own sick fascination with androgyny, but I would rank this as your absolute best by far. It has replaced my own work as my desk top image and... I'm sneaking it onto my husbands comp as well... Rock on girl..if your Wacom ever breaks give me a holler.

It's obvious to me that you are beyond simple "impasto" brush strokes. I believe that it takes much more skill and experience to achieve the nearly perfect "smooth" transitions that you do than the antiquated "rough look". It's incredible, you get crucified for being talented and different. I feel for you. You are a dynamic being living in this cold, binary, mechanical world, full of simple-minded jealous people who fear and misunderstand you. You are here to change things, you are a "mover and a shaker", A CONQUERER, it is your destiny.

enayla's picture

Thank you =D And... you're welcome =) I hope you find something fun to do with it.

enayla's picture

*smiles and purrs* Aww, now you made me smile and everything. *hugs*

enayla's picture

*beams* Thank you =D

enayla's picture

Well, everyone is entitled to their own opinion =) I don't mind if people hate my work. I have been receiving a good many hatemails lately, though, and that I don't like quite so much.Thank you =)

enayla's picture

Thank you. Funny thing is, I feel this is my own favourite of my pictures ^___^ Perhaps not because it is the best rendered one, but because I feel that it looks like I wanted it to. And because it gets the message across =)

enayla's picture

*Smiles* I don't know if I have talent or not - I can't vouch for that. Thank you for your kind comment =)

enayla's picture

I promise I won't stop =] Thank you.

enayla's picture

Hmm... you might actually be absolutely right about the spider. I'll see what I can do about that, later. I guess I was aiming for some kind of effect, but if it didn't work, I'll try to change it when I have the time. Thank you, for both crits and compliments =)

enayla's picture

I promise =] *curtseys*

enayla's picture

*grins* Thanks =)I'd kill for this corset, too. Damn, I really want it =|

enayla's picture

Thank you =)

Art at its best.
