Happy Valentine! <3

Hey, guys!
I'm making an otome games so of course I celebrate Valentine! x'D
Here's a little something from me <3 It took longer than I thought and it's been a long time since I tried my hand at semi realism without outlines so I'm a bit rusty, but here you go:

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres" -- 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 

Honestly, I was planning on something bigger, like a more complete picture, but I ran out of time Q_Q
The early sketch is this one:

It depicts the love of a Lamia with a Fae, where despite their differences, they still love each other.
You might find them familiar though. They're my OCs from 2015 and they have a special place in my heart so I decided to do a remake of them ^///^ In the future, when I have the time, maybe I'll continue this original sketch & polish them <3

For those who don't know/haven't seen them before, here's the two of them, born at 2015:

For my $5 patrons on Patreon, you'll be able to download the raw .PSD file! It's a bit messy in there though, so download at your own risk >_<; 

Also... heads up, but because I've been too immersed making this piece (and there are Chinese New Year plus celebrating valentine with my bf in between), I wasn't able to do much progress with Bermuda this week, so... *bows* m(_ _)m please excuse me if tomorrow's update is a bit lacking!

With that said, Happy Valentine! Share the love and share the sweets!


P.S. The sketch looks better than the final version, I know Q_Q This keeps happening to me--I didn't make him grin because it made him look too evil (like he has something sly in his mind so I changed it, hoping to make him look more gentle/soft). As for the Fae, I kept messing up with her lips and eyes during the polishing phase, I'll need to work harder later/re-polish it later when I go with the original sketch.

The puns! Hahahahaha! X"D thanks for making me laugh so hard at midnight rofl

I'm so glad to hear you love it! I'll do my best to draw semirealism once in a while but it might become a problem if I end up not having no time to spare for programming 😂 and yes, Bermuda is a combination of anime and semirealism but heavier on the anime side~

Thanks for the heart fingers <3 Happy Valentine indeed! I hope you're doing well~ here's some cyber hearts, hoping to share some of my sweetness with you ~<3 <3 <3 <3 ~<3 <3 <3 <3

*Sharing sweetness because my nickname is SweetChiel after all x"D *cough *excuse me and my fondness of corny puns 😂🤣


Ah so pretty!


D'aww thanka, Amberbaum! Long time no see~ <3 

Happy Valentine and I hope you're doing well over there ^\\\^


Thanks. Could be better on my side, but I'm always glad to see you doing artsy stuff!

I hope you are well, too :)


What a wonderful picture! As I said before: "I love your semi-realism art style." ;) Without the "black" outlines it looks great. :) And you call that a little bit rusty?!

I also like both the sketch and the final result.
Oh and I get some "Sesshōmaru" vibes from him right away! XD
It's also great to see the changes from before, well, the style is different, but you can still see the development. ^^

Hm ... a bit embarrassing but the quote is good and I was a bit surprised that something like that comes from the Bible. Sorry, I'm not very religious.

Have a wonderful day! ^ _ ^


Thank youuu, Yanonako QuQ I've come a long way! It was hard for me to polish this style, that's why I stick on the anime-semi realism style, I'm more confident with it 

And yes, you're right. Sesshomaru is a huge influence. I was a huge fan back then--still is, but more mellow now x"D

And it's okay! I also didn't know about the quote coming from the bible until I discovered the source. It's very memorable and suits my taste so it quickly became my favorite quote (because I'm a romantic lol)

You too, Happy Valentine and I hope you had a great weekend!  Share the sweetness of love to the people around you~ (I'm sorry if I sound so corny x"D)




what do you mean, both sketch and final result are nice! I love your painting style, also yeah I see the way you draw their face is much softer than the old one, still lovely though <3

Thank youu, rffknght! It means a lot >\\\< *shy & flattered, don't know what else to say 

it's been a long time since anyone praised my semi realism style
