Do You Love Me ? by ElectricBlue1989
Do You Love Me ?
Inspired by a song from 'Fiddler on the Roof'.

In my mind, Mirage and Asael are an unconventional couple who uncannily make things work. I've always pictured Mirage refusing to acknowledge the "L" word, even when her actions told otherwise.
Now Asael breaks the silence with four words and asks point blank.
The results could set back progress or smooth the road ahead a bit.

I'll be honest, while working on this piece, I wasn't really feeling it. But I pressed on. It wasn't until I was cleaning it up in Photoshop that I was able to appreciate it.
In case you're wondering, Mirage's hair isn't missing a piece, I just ran out of sketchpad space and I didn't want to crop the piece too much.

BTW, if anybody out there knows of a legit website with good pictures of quality Ancient Egyptian clothing, that'd really save me the hassle of swimming through small, grainy pics, inaccessible Pinterest pics, and Halloween costumes.

First Time Together by ElectricBlue1989
First Time Together
While discussing with :icontmp999:, I told him about an early piece I've done. He was intrigued. Having toyed with the idea of uploading it long before that, I said to myself "Why not?".

The piece was made around 2009, showcasing the initial relationship between Mirage and my then nameless OC Asael out of  my fanfiction, both of them together in a sketch for the first time, hence the title.

After drawing this, I knew that changes had to be made for future works:
-Asael was about done from the get-go. A bit of tweaking in the snout, haircut and an outfit fit for a slave and he was good to go. I drew the traditional Egyptian garb to further cement his likeness to Anubian jackals. Back then I didn't know how to draw those under-arm muscles, so I just winged it. They still give me trouble today. Given that Asael generally has his arms and chest uncovered, drawing him has helped me improve in male anatomy.

-Mirage was done using all the puny pics I could find from the show as reference. We all know her art style was inconsistent in some of her episodes. It happens, even in anime. This is the drawing that convinced me to develop my design for Mirage:
a) while there are people with waists that narrow, I decided to give her a more realistic body to make her less big-headed; hence the wider hips and buttocks.
b) a slightly reworked face, combining some of her more sleeker variations and toning down the cheekbones and that Disney feline jawline a tad.
c) give her crown a proper cobra.


I kinda miss the accidental bluish hue that my other scanner gives.
