Alaska by aeromachia Alaska by aeromachia
Oh, he's no Valentine
Though he said he would be mine
His heart is in Alaska all the time~

"Blake Says" - Amanda Palmer

Lucien's going through a bad patch. Post-SoE.

N.B. This is loosely referenced from a photo by `lockstock, but Lu is definitely a guy. Note the shoulders and lack of bosom. He just likes dresses :roll:

~6 hours, Photoshop CS2, I use too much purple.

Oh good. I was a little worried for a second (and then Lucien looking pretty in a dress distracted me again).

There's nothing wrong with dudes in dresses =P
If there was, then it'd be wrong for chicks to wear paints XD

Lovely work, you say it is too much purple, but I rather like all it's use~

I'll take one of him gift wrapped please. <3

Seriously, he is beyond gorgeous. I absolutely love that while he is quite beautiful, he is still definitely male -- those hands are exquisite and I do love how the fabric shifts colors so nicely.

Looks really nice, I can tell this one would have taken a while :phew: the variation of colours is good and even the background, although simple, provided more visual intrest.

Oh, "Lucien" must be a multi-gender name, since another person I watch has a male OC by the same name :XD:

Thank you so much, and have fun at the con! I'm immensely jealous - the only con I've ever been to is IMAF in London back in 2006. Actually it was awesome because I met up with a whole bunch of people (=Negshin, ~Flane-kanja, ~MMaS, ~o-rion and ~Winterquist spring to mind) and we had MADLY SKILLED CRAZYTIEMS and maybe got told to be quiet once or twice, but the con itself was tiiiiny and didn't have a whole lot going on...

Why thank you! <3 I'm rather pleased with the hands myself - think they came out a bit too dark in the final edit but they're supposed to be a bit sunburned and scarred-up, so it works I guess.
