Clair de Lune (Collab)

I had commissioned Crypsis/Spettri to ink and color a Valentine's sketch I had started last year, because I got stuck on the perspective and never could finish it myself. I had posted a journal asking if any artists could possibly finish this for me (as a commission) by Valentine's Day, and also noted several artists directly, and she is one of the ones who responded who could manage it in time. I absolutely love her Art Nouveau style (which is exactly what I wanted for this), and so decided to go with her, and am very glad I did! It came out just beautifully!! <3 We also had the help of WolfNymph/Eskiworks, who very kindly red-lined my original sketch, and Crypsis took it from there and perfected it (so what you see here is a collab between all three of us). :)

Now, a bit of an explanation behind the image itself: Lunacorn (my char) is asleep in the crook of Onyx's arm (my hubby's char), with a sweet little smirk on her face, and Onyx is still half-awake, patiently (and bemusedly) putting up with the fact that her horn is pressed right up underneath his chin, and he can't move. XD This pic is just to show the love that he has for me, and what he's willing to put up with because of that love. :) IRL, he calls me his "hairy octopus" (in a good way), which you won't get if you haven't seen this, lol (NWS): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dG99YVhf6to XD (We are both HUGE fans of that show!) <3<3<3
