Pudding and Pie by Atsuyojuunfuyumi Pudding and Pie by Atsuyojuunfuyumi
EDIT:: Thanks to a helpful critique, I made some changes. =)


It wasn't her intention to lead him on. It certainly wasn't her intention to do something that held significance in canine cultures. It was only supposed to be a peck on the cheek; however, in the midst of rushing and reaching, she fell a little short, and her lips merely grazed the underside of Sesshoumaru's jaw.

His expression of awe was her first indication that she'd goofed somehow. The next was a smile that robbed her of breath. The last was a kiss that curled her toes... and crossed the imposing gap that existed between both culture and species.

When he finally pulled back to gaze into her flushed face, Sesshoumaru gravely inquired, "May I interpret your response as attraction?"

Kagome lightly touched her tingling lips and wondered, How did this happen?


Forthright, it's sad you've become part of my Saturday morning routine. Get up, walk the dogs, make coffee, go read the latest chapter of unspoiled.

Seriously, I'm addicted.

Also... couldn't remember what Kagome was supposed to be wearing, but I -do- know she hasn't gone back to her time yet, so she has no modern clothes....

I winged it.
~

I went all out on the shading on this one, but the background... I drew a blank. I miss photoshop... Sai just doesn't do what I need it to to make good backgrounds. =/



Unspoiled is a fanfiction written by Forthright.

Sesshoumaru and Kagome belong to Rumiko Takahashi





Also, I could -not- stop listening to this song while drawing this. I think it fits Forthright's story pretty well. =O


Make Me Over- Lifehouse

Wrap my arms around your name
Feel your breath against my pain
As i breathe out
The past is gone
Empty smile
Naked heart
Who I was, falls apart
When you're here
Inside of me
Feel till your numb
Depth perception becoming
The new deaf and dumb

I'm losing myself just to find a place in your mind
In your mind
Changing myself, just to stand alone in your eyes
In your eyes
Pull me in, take me out, make me over

Read the wave, ride your fears
In this ocean of years
We've been here
Swimming on

Take me deep, till I find
Every corner of your mind

We've been here
Swimming on

Touch, till you taste
All the time
We are wasting alone
Waiting here

I'm losing myself just to find a place in your mind
In your mind
Changing myself, just to stand alone in your eyes
In your eyes
Pull me in, take me out,
make me over, and shout me out loud,
Shout me out loud

I'm losing myself just to find a place in your mind
In your mind
Changing myself, just to stand alone in your eyes
In your eyes
I'm losing myself just to find a place in your mind
In your mind
Pull me in, take me out, make me over

NICE WORK... their hug gives out they are feeling for each other and how deep their feeling is . You did really good at capturing SessXKag's hug & feelings & kiss...SWEET

but the background is little too bright and sharp... its totally disturbing the harmony of your pic... the bright colors totally distracts the attention that Ses-Kag should have as the subject of your work. and since the background is always behind the subject..it shouldn't be so sharp and in focus.... blurring the background a little can help...

ALL THE BEST 4 YOUR FUTURE WORKS ;)

Wow - I love what you've done to Kagome's hair! I've never seen highlights done that way, but I really love it.

Well done!

Kagome was wearing the kimono Hisoka-sensei gave her, I think. =u=;; And if not, she was wearing a kimono; but the miko clothing is cool! :3 I love the feeling you gave to this. And I'm so going to listen to this song you've shared with us in your A/N. (: It has lovely lyrics.

Besides, thanks to you I now know that Unspoiled is updated every Saturday! (: *looking forward to Saturday now. LOL.

Great work with that colouring and shading!

Well now! This is a wonderful surprise! I'm so pleased that both the story in general and this scene in particular inspired you. ::twinkle::

Since you are requesting critiques, I'll just mention that I was surprised that between the first time I glimpsed your piece and now, the background underwent such a drastic change. Personally, I find it jarring when digital illustrations are placed on photographic backgrounds. The two mediums often compete for attention instead of complementing one another. Sometimes simple is best.

Now... I'll have to go hunt down that song! Thank you, m'dear!

Lol. I see your point. The funny part is most people were arguing at first that the background wasn't attention grabbing -enough-! So.... perhaps I should post both versions? I guess it's all a matter of personal taste.

And Unspoiled inspires me -quite- a bit.... I just hardly ever have time to really get it down on paper. =(

This chapter probably made me...well, my heart wouldn't stop pounding and I couldn't get my jaw up from the floor. And this picture multiplied that feeling times five, at least! I think the background is actually wonderful, and the colors are also so pretty together...and Kagome's outfit looks awesome when you put it next to Sesshomaru's.

KISS

i love that scene! i love this story! i like that pink tree in the background, it's so luscious looking haha.
there's a similar story called "the once and future taiyokai" that's pretty good too if you like this story. it's along the same lines an is sesshxkag but a lot different.

Ohmygoodness! I just read that chapter this morning! It was sooooo sweet! poor Sesh was so confused throughout the whole thing, but he scored in the end. It totally made my day. Actually, take that back... the story and then this picture have totally made my day :D Keep up the wonderful work!

UGH. Second time writing this-- laptop died mid-comment.

I love this picture, it's sooooo adorable. Sesshoumaru x Kagome is one of my favourite non-canon pairings. I totally know how you feel about the background issue though. What I usually do when I have problems is look through stock landscape photography, and either use a piece I love as a photo-background or as inspiration for what to draw as my own.

Alright, now the fun part. ;3

Sesshie's face doesn't line up with Kag's. It looks to me as if his lips are about at the bridge of her nose?
Kag's hand on the back of his head... the fingers aren't as nicely defined as on the other hand. There doesn't seem to be any definition on the knuckles? And the spacing on the fingers seem off.
Lastly! I love this detail, but there's something I have to say about it. The fabric drape where she's gripping his haori: the underside kind of defies gravity (not that I don't believe Sesshoumaru COULDN'T defy gravity). I think the fabric would pull more downwards and not puff out as much where it's being pulled at the bottom with the strain it's experiencing, although the puffing on the top if fine as gravity would pull the fabric that Kagome's not gripping downwards and I imagine it's a fairly loose garment.

I hope that's helpful. 83

omgyuiwbwsdhjlffsvbhfj that's brilliant! The background is high contrast which goes spectacularly with the colours and painting style you used. Her fingers look way better with knuckle definition, their faces better angled, and the folds on his haori now obey the laws of gravity!

Brava.

Thank you! I thought of how Kagome would react to a "toe curling" kiss and firm clutch is what I decided the best option would be. Flustered and taken aback, I supposed she'd have to ground herself on him in the heat of the moment. ;)

And it fits so well. It's so Kagome-like! I really hope we can see more moments like this soon. I wasn't actually expecting a kiss as for yet, but man... if it wasn't a pleasant surprise :w00t:
