☯ Michael © me.

"I was really looking forward to meeting you."

"So you could punch me in the face...?"

"No, not at all. I wanted to thank you."

"To thank me? For what?"

"For what you've done for Michael."

"What I've
done for him? I've put him through Hell and back, and you want to thank me for it?"

"I guess you wouldn't understand since you haven't known him for nearly as long as I have. Also, I don't think anyone else can appreciate it the way I do since I don't see him that often anymore. But… over the past year, I've seen my baby brother grow into a much more confident young man. He has accepted and… found himself. And that's all thanks to you."



~ Josh & Mark Darlington

More shameful fanservice ^^;

Interestingly, it ended up looking like a companion piece to "Music" [link] even though that wasn't my intention at all. But err, makes sense, really. Since I'm stuck on the writing front, I thought I'd try to portrait Michael's 'growth' and I'm very happy with the result. Also, it seems that I can finally draw his hair from almost every side, so yay (not that anyone but me will care about that...)

Thank you!! It was great to draw him looking so... confident, compared to what I've done so far.

I'm having so much fun with this "new" idea. There was no brother to start with, but once Mark showed up in my head, M immediately turned into the little boy who only has eyes for his big brother. And gosh, they almost look like clones XD

He looks more confident and mature, but also peaceful. I really like this ambient/back lighting effect you've been doing.

They're my babies :love: but not everything about them is posted here. If you're not averse to BL (and I have a feeling you're not since you're an IchiIshi fan) I can tell you where to go.

I say that but I don't think I'll be able to resist the urge to at least try to draw him really upset.....

:flirty: He looks bishie, as in shoujo bishie.
The little snippet is almost more adorable than the picture though, especially as I never thought of Michael having an elder brother. Though I will snicker momentarily over their parent's obvious favour for 'm' names.

I've tried to move away from "purely molestable" but I think he'll always be a bishie :XD:

And thanks for the comment about the snippet! He wasn't supposed to have an older brother, but Mark sort of created himself (and he becomes quite important to the end of the story).

And you wouldn't believe how hard I tried to come up with another name, but nothing would do!

I wouldn't say he was ';purely molestable' before, just a greater degree of glompable.
