But-not-like-that by Caraphae But-not-like-that by Caraphae
OH WOW WAY OVERDUE, IT’S STILL APRIL SOMEWHERE FOR A FEW MINUTES I’M SURE?!?
In response to some joking conversations with my Ace/unshipping crew about Enjolras being our patron saint of But Not That Way. This would I’m sure have been better drawn by someone with ANY UNDERSTANDING OF ICONOGRAPHY AT ALL, but that’s not my cultural background! So here, have some eye-searhing flower symbolism (it was way more sedate in Photoshop why?!?) : orange blossoms are for chastity, chrysanthemums are for friendship, as is general orange/gold/yellow coloring in flowers, red stands for Hugo's hilarious constant "HE WAS SO HOT BUT NOT THAT WAY OKAY IT WAS PURE AND STOP THINKING LIKE THAT" descriptions.

I am a SRS FAN of a very SRS NOVEL, yes.

Complete perfection - shining, transcedant Enjolras is my favourite!

Ahahah, thank you! I never feel entirely certain of an Enjolras drawing until I've had your nod on it (this may well be stupid but (a) it's true and (b) I DON'T CARE).

(also I think my own favourite Enjolras is probably Fanboy Mode Enjolras, but Shiny Transcendent Enjolras is VERY close! THE HAIR, how can I ever resist THE HAIR.)

Lovely. And I can't help but think it would need a minimum of simplifying to make a good silkscreen t-shirt. If Les Mis had cons, you could totally have this be a con shirt!

...er, does it have cons?

It does not yet BUT I AM WORKING ON IT.
...I am actually working on it. I'm scouting locations, I've got a list of potential attendees. If I don't get to see my Amis I may implode or something.

This is lovely. It really has that spiritual, glowing feel to it. I also like your use of textures in the background.

Now, POST MORE ART HERE dammit!

I WILL TRY, but I'm afraid a lot of it will still be Les Mis related? Not all, but a lot?
GLOWING YES YAY, I need to be able to capture more glowing for REASONS.

Then I have captured some of his ludicrous overdescription! And also begun to get a handle on some techniques I want to use going forward. Thank you!
