Shot to the Heart

Cupid and Psyche by Errol Le Cain

Cupid and Psyche by Errol Le Cain

I can’t even begin to articulate the things this image does to me.
The arm. The wing. The hand. Oh, that hand *FEELINGS*

Excuse me while I *flail* some more.

    Oh, this is fantastic, and I can’t even relate to all the feelings you have about it. But oooh, it reminds me so much of a scene in Reign the Conqueror and I’m finding it a little bit hard to breathe.

    (Have you seen that anime series? The art style is so fucking delicious. The whole thing is amazing.)

        I don’t know, I think you might like this one. Such fantastic imagery, and the subject matter is also really interesting and well-done. Although, it is possible that our tastes diverge at certain points (such as anime). Just… just watch a little, and tell me if you don’t freaking love those lips. On Alexander, and on like every other character. o_o

          It’s the dubbing that gets to me; I’d much rather just read sub-titles than have horrible dubbing :S Google tells me it’s by the same designer as Aeon Flux and I can see the similarities! I like the idea of a re-imagining of the Alexander story. Should be able to “find” it pretty easily.

        Yes yes yes! Same artists as Aeon Flux, which is one reason I love it so much. Which also means that it was created for English, not Japanese, so the dubbing isn’t horrible like so many other animes. And I wholeheartedly agree about that, by the way. I pretty much prefer all my anime in the original Japanese with subtitles, because most of the time the English dubs are horrendous. Except for Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood. That show is effing AMAZING (and the voice actors are incredible). But I’ll stop gushing about anime in your comments now. :P

      Yes, definitely Beardsley, with a hint of the darkness of Harry Clarke. The rest of his work – that I’ve managed to find – isn’t nearly as striking, though it is very beautiful.

    Yeah that’s fun. Peek-a-boo Mr. Wingey-one. Show us your pretty face!

    Sorry, think I’m still stuck on my tumblr irreverence/snarkasm thing. That is very pretty, and gives me some ideas on combining pen and ink with graphite…

      Snark away :D Black & grey work has always been my favourite “medium” to work in (probably mostly due to it being so easy to control, unlike paint and things that actually require trained skill, as opposed to technique.)

      It was waiting for my aproval (from on high).

      I thought my approval of you was pretty implicit, but WordPress didn’t get the memo ;)
