Yep, you're right, Luca, the dark hairedguy, is the more masculine one in their love. Ayco, the (silver) Haired elf, is the feminie part, but in fact, Ayco is the fragile soul, Luca the stronger, but sweet and soft hearted soul. His long hair... Luca, I play him since so many years, 10 or more. He's my mage, a D&D Chara... And Ayco, he's the chara of my friend and love Koriko...

The best shading pic? Don't say such a thing, I'm not good as other artists here... only a drawer...

This is a beautiful piece, rather remarkable use of pencil shading. I like the way that it seems to almost look like a card, the top half is certainly arranged like that with the wall being the background of the card, while the bottom looks like you're looking into a room with no walls except the back.

The subject for this piece interests me... Whenever I see a male/male couple, one of the males looks extremely feminine, and they're almost always very long-haired. In this picture, the blonde on the right seems to be the "feminine" one to me... Put a pair of breasts on him and he'd easily be a girl. The darker haired man is a lot more masculine (I think it's the chin), but he's still got very long hair.

The medium for this piece also intrigues me, it looks like you didn't use actual lines anywhere in it to guide your shading.... It seems almost impossible to me. It's really a pity, though, it seems like a lot of the detail got lost in the scanning. I can sort of see some of the detail in the small creatures you have dancing around the feet of the lovers, but I'd love to see a larger sized image.
