LONG INFO:

I wanted to draw an 'update' of Sacris as King of Mankind - using design quotations of those artworks I would like to make an update of with this:
Welcome to My Heart by Van-Syl-Production Masquerade by Van-Syl-Production Shall we dance ...? and Protection (18+)
The heaviest update it shall represent is the update to the first one "Welcome to my heart". Back then - it was in volume 2 and 3 - Sacris was only functioning as King. He himself didn't live anymore, his heart non-existent. Yet he was unable to let go of the burden laid upon him as his social environment was successfully constructed to "keep him im place". Now - volume 7 - it seems he has grown to be able to coexist alongside with his status as King of Mankind. I love how soft, yet strong he looks. in contrast to the older drawings he is not wearing any protective armor - but he doesn't seem the least vulnerable, it's astonishing.
ah yeah: actually I should say something about Jerome since he was the one why I started the drawing at all :'D it's dealing with the current development between Sacris and Jerome (which has started already half of a year ago). in the last years Jerome helped Sacris to find his way and to heal. Now Sacris returns the favour to him; although Jerome was just as resistent concerning help and that he needed any as Sacris had been - well Sacris has been shown by the highest master how to deal with defiance and renitency, right? ;p after all he's driven by the same, genuine and innocent wish as Jerome had been before: he just wants the best for Jerome <3
Originally this drawing was supposed to be greyscale with black background and color highlighting of red and gold. but it looked to pale, empty and depressing that it scared me and I had left closed for many weeks. but just 2-3 days ago the vision came up in my mind to emphasize more of Sacris' 'Majesty' and his place in the "natural order" by putting the galaxy in his back. together with the sunrays and the other golden stuff it almost has something iconic :'D
but hey! a drawing that was so depressing as if Sacris was about to just start crying along with Jerome - as they both seemed helpless - ended now as a big majestic "I will take care of this issue without fail. cling to me, Jerome. you made my shoulders strong enough to hold you as whole until you are able to stand on your own legs again."

ah and the grayscaling style (concerning Jerome here) has just the same meaning as here: Hesitation

Enjoy and share thoughts! <3
P.S.: after 3 weeks of severe fight my cold finally seems to give in and fade away. only 2 weeks left until my vacation - I'm so excited~ :3

putzig >.<

Bin grad dabei die story zu lesen ;P Bin auf Seite 200-irgendwas UND IMMERNOCH KEIN GAYSEX Dx !!!! Ne quatsch~ Ich genieß es total und es ist sehr angenehm zu lesen. Außerdem liebe ich es wie du dir Zeit nimmt die Welt und Menschen zu beschreiben und nicht davor zurückschreckst den Dingen Zeit zu geben. Eine wunderbar aufgebaute Beziehung zwischen Sacris und Lewyn. :D
Bin schon gespannt wie's weitergeht~ *weiterles

übrigens: Ich meine irgendwo gelesen zu haben dass es schon 700 Seiten gibt? Ich hab aber bei dem E-book nur 400 ? Ist das normal oder hab ich irgendwas falsch gemacht Dx?


PS: Wenn ich irgendwann mal Zeit finde, dann würd ich gerne vllt auch mal die beiden malen, bzw die ein oder andere szene aus der geschichte (sehr optimistisch heute xD) - dürfte ich das wenn ich es denn täte? Und natürlich würde ich dich kreditieren und alles ;) #unbezahltewerbung x)

haha xD ja, ich lass mir zeit :) aber es lohnt sich ;3 denn ich lass mir auch mit der ausführung der 'gaysex' sachen dann ebenso zeit XD

das liegt am gedrängten layout von ebook :) das buchlayout ist auf angenehmes lesen ausgelegt und daher 700 buchseiten lang. wenn du von mir den ersten band erworben hast (bin mir grad nich sicher, ob du bei mir das geholt hast), anstatt es bei nem onlineshop oder so zu holen, dann hast du ja auch die pdf fassung und siehst dort, wie das layout ist :)

na klaro <3 ich freue mich über beiträge jeder form :3

huii~ okay :D:D freu mich schon >.< jetzt muss ich nur noch Zeit dafür finden Thumbs Up 



momentan gibt es nur diesen ersten Teil, oder? D:

:iconvan-syl-production:
Van-Syl-Production Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2017  Professional Digital Artist
schon klar, kein stück :D

nuja, jedem das seine xD wenn dus von shops holst zahlst du 7 euro statt 5 - und ich sehe am ende davon keine 3 euro. bei mir selbst per mail/auf cons gekauft gibts eben zudem die schicke pdf fassung, die liedzettel zu den gesungenen liedern in den jeweiligen buchbänden, n bild aus meiner gallerie in hoher auflösung gratis dazu sowie sämtliche neuauflagen automatisch per mail zugeschickt.
(außer du meinst jetz iwelche raubkopien - wüsste jetz nich, dass ich schon berühmt genug für sowas wäre xD)

den zweiten teil gibts bereits bei mir direkt für 5 euro zu holen per mail. ich hab ja schon alles bis zum 6. band geschrieben - komme halt nur mit korrekturlesen und veröffentlichen nicht hinterher. daher ist der 2. band auch nur eine vorfinale fassung, weil das buchlayout noch fehlt (aber davon sieht man in der epub fassung ja eh nix).

tja~ dann werd ich dich wohl anschreiben sobald ich mit dem ersten fertig bin (bin nicht wirklich ne leseratte - aber ich gebe mein bestes ^^°)


Geht mir momentan ähnlich - hab bei einer meiner Geschichten schon über 400 Seiten (klingt wahrscheinlich für dich ziemlich wenig.. aber ich bin trotzdem stolz drauf xD) und hab die neu aufgesetzt. Ist inzwischen im Verhältnis schon fünf Mal so lang - also ja... das Gefühl vom nicht mehr hintererkommen kenn ich auch. xD

Aber ich will mir ne scheibe bei dir abschneiden und auch versuchen den Dingen ihre Zeit zu geben. Ich liebe einfach dein Storytelling!! :D


wie is das eigentlich? Wenn du deine Time-out nimmst ?-- kann man dich da erreichen bezüglich der Bestellungen etc. - oder wie ist das? :)

Hat das nen Grund?-

die sind ja selbst auch keine veganer. sprich zb tiere, die zum essen erlegt werden, sind ja auch kein problem. aber bedenk ihren "direkten draht" zu ah'nya - sie kriegen möglicherweise schlichtweg mit, aus welchem grund und wie ein tier erlegt wurde.

Ah, it's been too long since I've left proper commentary on your work, so here's my attempt to remedy that. 😆

The way this piece turned out is superb. Sacris looks quite majestic here, and Jerome, while seemingly forlorn , looks to be in good hands. :) The contrast between the color and grayscale is certainly striking. I suppose since I know quite a bit about these two men, the message of this piece is even more prominent for me, but I believe any viewer will see what I'm seeing: A kingly figure, serving as a pillar of strength for someone who needs him. Looking at Sacris, I see determination and a will to comfort and protect. It really hits close to home because this is something everyone needs from time to time, no matter how strong you are.

Love it, man. Love it. 💜

Hi, Nox :)

I think this is one of my favorites. The look of Sacris is very powerful and strong. I also liked the asymmetry of the image.

I'm glad you decided to color it, it was worth it! <3  

Although it gave me a little pity Jerome, I do not know whether he looks depressed or sick D:

yeah the grayscale issue with Jerome is a style decision -  the same like here Hesitation by Van-Syl-Production and here Healing Rain (It's okay that you are different) by Van-Syl-Production :) it's not because his body is sick - it's to show that his psyche is sick

Sometimes the best part of a picture is the narrative between the artist and their followers.  And they've all pretty much mirrored my own sentiments so I won't repeat them here. But Green is a bit right and you are too.  Sacris has the expression of a monarch - it may seem cool but that's necessary for a good one.  Too soft and compassionate and your subjects will consider you weak.  His care and compassion I think is reflected by the warmth, the softness of the media and - his actions.  If anything, its that look that 'I can defend you' - he can do the job - with empathy but with the confidence he needs. A good ruler walks a tight rope; I've studied monarchy my whole life (thank you Elizabeth R) and I think that Sacris has it down here.

yes I wanted to express that he is "cold/steel" where he needs to be - while having a "soft heart" where he can afford to have one

Elizabeth R is a series the BBC did many years ago based on the life of Queen Elizabeth the first. It was what started my love of the BBC and the life of English monarchy.

The thing I like most about this image is the way Jerome is rendered. It has a broken and vulnerable feel about it. I'm curious about the skin tone choice on him, is it supposed to be so grey?

Jerome also looks very small. I'm not sure what the size difference between the two characters is supposed to be. But Jerome seems oddly small here compared to their usual height and build difference.

I like the hair on Jerome and the way it drapes over the rest of the figures.

yes the grayscaling is my style dealing with someone "drowning in his psychical problems". you can see it as well used here Hesitation by Van-Syl-Production and here Healing Rain (It's okay that you are different) by Van-Syl-Production

Hu, Sacris looks so cold. Not sure how he would be as a king  - first impression: no one you would want as king with this merciless stare; only what is important to him matters.
You wrote Jerome healed him and now he helps him - but at the same time you say he is heartless, not living.  Quite confusing. 
Reply
:iconvan-syl-production:
Van-Syl-Production Featured By Owner Edited Mar 5, 2017  Professional Digital Artist
I think you mixed up things in my description xD
the Sacris, who was cold and "empty inside" (not "heartless", at least it's not what is meant with "without a heart") and only functioning as King, is in volume 2/3 and especially visible in this drawing Welcome to My Heart by Van-Syl-Production
Now, 4 book volumes later, he is coexisting as individual Sacris along with the King ;)
And when you consider THIS stare he has here in the current deviation as COLD - then what do you call the stare he had back then, I wonder? XDDD
btw: when Sacris appeared weak towards the realm and its aristocracy in any way, he would have been killed long ago already. his normal gaze is very dominant, that's simply his personality :D it's rather rare when he has a really tender look (and that happens only in special moments towards his partner)

^^ The other drawing: Sacris is more a statue than a person. 'A gear wheel' in the system - even so it may be leading one. 
Okay, empty inside fits more - also at the end of Vol 1. He may focus on what may come and his duty but there is no 'link to life' left.
For me the stare looks less intense than the one in the newest drawing with him in flesh-tone. A statue is something fixed, somehow less strong than a person.

Oh, and I remember a female person ruling a complete room full of noisy, talking people just with a rather silent and friendly tone. ;)

:iconvan-syl-production:
Van-Syl-Production Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2017  Professional Digital Artist
okay now it makes sense XD
yeah that's the way it was ... and once you read vol 2/3 you'll understand how it was possible this way
and no, it was neither healthy for Sacris nor - on the long run - for the Realm.

well that depends on the person and the people who are to put under control, you know XD and when you biggest "enemies" within your "realm" are just some normal people - without any millenium-heavy drive to claim the throne for themselves - it might be a different issue. and that Sacris succeeded the throne after what he has done at his birthday and is 2 years "before his time" on the throne doesn't make things easier for him to keep the realm together. after all before his father took the lead the realm was seperated for ages. the "peace and union" was just fragile. that's nothing you rule from the first second on with a silent and friendly appearance. just now in volume 7 on Sacris has reached a point where his position is secured enough to relax a bit, but it was a severe and delicate fight until that point.

With that different groups it is no wonder that he has to fight the comming years ;) - that was already nicely established in Vol. 1.  (Only drawback personally - I guess you might sort me to the scientists - as I am one. But I think more tolerant than you fictional science-group. ;)) With those different groups it is like beeing torn in four different directions. Everyone wants the best for his area and people not thinking further than their horizon.
Do you refer to his birthday in Vol. 1? A bit harsch what his father did... not even telling him about the 'plan behind'. And one thing with big effekt. I would not want to stay at a party after that. Curious how his story will continue.
