Fanart - Prince and Princess Contest  

A (belated) happy birthday, Ishida-kun! :D

Oh, yes, they're a royal couple alright. A cookie to anyone who gets who they're (loosely) supposed to be. XD

...and look, look! The image is more yellow than orange this time!

That's...... errrr, progress for me, isn't it?

Oh my gosh, this is gorgeous!!! I love that you used colors these two aren't usually associated with. It's neat to see Uryuu with out any blue on this clothes, and that dark green dress is stunning on Orihime. The coloring you did on her hair is stunning. Yay for extended contests and belated birthday goodies! This is great!

Thank you, I'm glad you like it! :D

Orihime's hair is always so difficult to match with other colors... mostly because orange clashes with so many of them. XD But as long as you choose the shade just right, I think even pink can work for her! :D

And Uryuu simply goes with everything, so no problem there. :P

I love, love all the details in this pic <3 the colors, specially the roes, you are amazing coloring roses <3 Orihime looks the best *_* her hair, the little fowers, she is gorgeous! Beautiful work.

I have a feeling I've seen this pair they are representing but i can't get who they are :_D (bad memory issues)

Stunning work as always dear <3

Thank you, my dear! :DDD

Also, roses are actually pretty easy to color.

Here's how I do it:

As for the pair in question, look below! ;)

really pretty! I love the details and Orihime's expression and, and everything XD

I'm glad you like it!

Especially since I changed Orihime's expression at the last moment because I wasn't satisfied with it... she was looking at the roses originally.

Happy to see it works for you. XD

Wonderful, really, I have no word. Love it to death! The color, the pose, everything! Sugoi!
Could they be Sissi and Franz? (sparata alla grande ma non so perchè mi son venuti in mente loro due XD)

Sparata alla grande, ma beccata in pieno! XD

Yup, they're meant to be Sissi and Franz!

I decided to use the scene where he proposes to her because it's so iconic and memorable... but unfortunately, red roses are such a staple of romantic settings that it's kind of hard to recognize it just from that. XD

Now, if the traditional gesture to ask someone to dance the cotillon at the Austrian court had been to offer your partner a huge man-eating carnivorous plant instead of red roses, then I'm sure that it would have been much easier to identify Sissi and Franz here!

This is absolutely marvelous! I haven't had an opportunity to properly comment, so I waited. I have looked at this several times since you posted it, and let me tell you, every time I am awed by the rich colors and the clean lines! It's where I want to be as an artist! I adore the fullness of Inoue's hair and the color choices and the folds in the clothes!

Most of all, though, I keep marveling over their expressions and body language! The romance you've portrayed in the simple act of tenderly placing a rose in a loved one's hair, it's truly enchanting. <3 You should be proud!

Woah, thank you so much! :DDD

I was actually a little sad about the fact that you can't really see Ishida's expression clearly here... but, well, I guess composition trumps everything. XD

And by the way, YOU should actually be much prouder. I mean, just think of all the effort it took you to draw such beautiful hands in your latest picture! While I simply hid them by placing them strategically behind the roses... what a lazyass I am. :P

You're very welcome! =3

You know there is something poetic about not quite seeing Ishida's expression here--because I feel you can see it but barely. I think its like a physical metaphor for how Ishida shows his feelings for Inoue. He shows us glimpses of his true feelings through his face and how he looks at her, but it's seldom. I get that feeling here. It's actually quite powerful.

And thank you for your kind words. You've made me feel like I should pick drawing back up again. P.S.~ You are so not lazy! lol

gorgeous as always Mezzi <3333 . I love Orihime's dumbfounded expression as he places the rose on her ear lol. Love the color combo and patterns. Beautiful hair on Ori as well, I want to pet it ^__^ <333

This is gorgeous, as is all your work. I'm in love with Orihime's tender expression here. Your Ishida and Orihime are always so young and fresh and innocent; your coloring is always so impeccable. I love your stuff; I love YOU--write me. I've been trying to get to you via email.
