[image description courtesy of tumblr user anlamasanda: Jade sits astride a kneeling Kanaya, holding her face and kissing her. Kanaya’s eyes are closed and her gloved hands don’t quite touch Jade, suggesting surprise? Jade’s glasses are abandoned on the ground beside them, to the confusion of a small red frog. It, Kanaya’s red skirt, and Jade’s red jacket are vivid against the simple whitish background, which is embellished by the song quote “you and I breathe so slow”. ]
This is probably the first Jade I’ve drawn that I am more or less satisfied with (though obviously this is subject to change when I get some temporal space from its production). Naturally, it’s one of Jade with most of her face obscured. :/
Scene (+creative liberties) from Frost and Frogs by urbanAnchorite; lyrics from Gravity by Bic Runga. I almost went with a Vienna Teng song because Vienna Teng is my headcanon PB for Kanaya, but I think I tend to overuse her lyrics. I can’t help it! They are just so appropriate for everything I draw.
It’s possible I have a problem.
I suppose it’s worth noting that this is part of my ongoing effort to stop coloring things with so much freaking brown. I still need to work my way up to purple and neon color schemes, but…this has almost no brown in it! Good job, me. (…even if I had to put them in a bleached-out void in order to restrain my urges.)
