Snow Trouble At All by Arallion Snow Trouble At All by Arallion
Father Abel Nightroad and Sister Esther Blanchett in a rather... er... compromising position. There was a snowball fight, one thing led to another... oh come on, people - he's a klutz, he tripped over her and they both fell. What were YOU thinking??? (And yes, that's his story and he's sticking to it... )

Alas, all good times do come to an end.... in this case with a treebranchful of snow down the neck. Ah, Mother Nature and her cold showers. :D

XD And you just _know_ the sound Abel will make when the snow hits him will be an adorably Abel-ish "KYEEEEEEE!" as his eyes go buggy and his teeth clench. (laughs) Yes, the picture was so good, it made me "hear" and "see" that reaction.

This is very sweet. Clean lines, wonderfully bright and lush colors, and it's Trinity Blood. How could you have gone wrong? ^n_n^

OMG I knew Esther liked Abel but not this much @_@ I haven't watched every single episode of Trinity Blood lol so is it true they like each other this much??? Great pic!!.. I will laugh if that gigantic snow pile falls onto Abel.. XD That's what it looks like to happen.

You're very welcome for the +fav <3
Realized I'm being a hypocrite by faving and not commenting...one of my worst pet peeves when people do that to my stuff. And this piece is so wonderful, I wonder why I didn't comment before! xD

That is such an Abel thing to do, in this work. xDD I love how it's extremely in-character without being really that suggestive. Their positioning is very innocent and the snow falling is just hilarious. ^_^

:aww: I love to hear what people are thinking of these pieces, but I figure it's often hard to put into words what one likes; the little ":+fav:" button is soooo much easier. :D Anyway, thanks for coming back and leaving your thoughts! It's good to know that the goofy "I swear this was an accident!" subtext for Abel does come through to a certain extent!

*grins* Awww, so cute! Very good job coloring. I love the way you did the hair and the tree and the snow clinging to it! (Hehe, as for that last sentence, I forgot to bring my commas with me...) Keep up the great work on writing and in drawing!

I just love how cute this is...Even though I don't know the characters, it's still cute. I like how you did the snow texture too! And of course, the adorable blushing cheeks :D

I still need to look that anime up...Jeez...

Thanks! "Cute" was basically what I was going for. SUCCESS!!!! :D
Found some nice dry-texture brushes in PS7 that helped me out with the snow (they also do good things for stonework, IMO, if you're sparing with them). Ah, my backgrounds... they're always so... accidental. Actually, I think this is a good thing, because if my little experiments didn't turn out all right more often than not, I'd probably give up...!
