May I Have this Dance? by Skailla May I Have this Dance? by Skailla
Wow, it's been a long time, eh?
I've been busier than I should lately, so making complete pieces like this one's turned out to be pretty difficult! :/

Anyways, you guys don't know these two yet :)
They are new characters of mine from a little a personal project, but I wanted to share it with you folkies! =D

The whole thing was based off a song by Beirut which I happen to absolutely love: [link]
Do listen to it while looking at the pic, the emotion is much more intense!:aww:

It was as if the song had delivered those characters to me, seriously. My brain did no work at all, I don't even know how to explain it!

But anyways, about them:

The male in the picture is called Alfiere (I love this name so much :heart: spent 4 days looking for the perfect one!). He's a lonely musician who wanders around the port cities of Italy. He plays the guitar and sings with a deep husky voice, and is incredably charming. He likes to show up during random festivals and make his presentations, but never stays in one place for too long.

In one of those festivals, in a small town by the sea, he meets Doriane (still thinking about the name, actually), a french dance performer. Well, things happen, and they meet accidentally. They dance during the festival, and well... they fall in love :la:

Well, I'm not going to tell you the rest just yet, but I hope you guys like them! =D


I know. Background looks horrible. I hate drawing buildings. This took me more than 5 days to finish!!
Poses were inspired by Don Bluth's All Dogs Go to Heaven, but no precise reference was taken.
