These things I do... by Szajnie These things I do... by Szajnie
I do them for you.

My OCs Sikka and Sebastian. I've missed them...well, missed drawing them. I am actually attempting to write the story. Really. :P

I even included a snippet of a scene that takes place in the story. (Not related to this picture, lol)

** *** ** *** ** ***


“Hold still.” Quiet, his voice ghosted against her skin, his breath stirring the hair at her temple. She took in a shallow breath when she felt the firm touch of his fingers against her flesh; tried—and failed—to remain impassive to the brush of his hair against her cheek.

She shifted, placing her hand over his, her head bowed as she fought to maintain her composure.

“Am I hurting you?” he asked as the backs of his fingers smoothed her hair from her shoulder.

Yes. So much.

“It's...I'm fine,” she managed. Stiff—from injuries both physical and not—she made to step away from him.

“Sikka.”

Just her name, but in it she heard so much, and it hurt. Her fingers curled into her palms. Don't break, don't break.

There was a heavy silence and then he was turning her, carefully, to face him. “Sikka,” he said again, bending to whisper the word against her mouth.

She forgot how to breathe.
** *** ** *** ** *** ** *** ** ***

They break my heart some days, but I love them a lot.

Sikka, Sebastian, Shadow Walkers © Me (and I will break fingers...)

Very interesting and well done. I'm a bit scared of this blood (even if it's not much) but the overall look is brilliant. :)

With both weapons and powers. They've both grown up during a war and they are fighters/mercenaries in that war.

It's a war that takes place in their realm and spills over into ours, so mythical fits. ;)

well this is certainly a piece of eye-candy!


I see you brightened her hair? or is that the tricky light source?
Sikka's face is OSOM btw.

:bow:

Tricky light. Her hair is red (various shades)--as you know, not black--so when she's in bright light it tends to really show up. Oddly, one of the thing Sebastian likes to do is sift her hair and watch the colors.

He's a very stoic faced romantic. :|

I really enjoyed softening his features a bit for this one. He's not very 'emotive', but he says a lot with his eyes. **loves Sebs**

I like how u colored the hair, but now that i see the pic here, i noticed that his ear is a little to small.
But the whole picture looks great <3

I have an odd liking for designing clothing--which is weird, because I am simple jeans and tee shirt all the time. :P
