Not sure if this is entirely finished yet... I wanted to put it up here tonight before I went to bed, so I think I rushed the last bits.

This is an illustration based on sinsense's 'Skin of the Canvas'. It's a truly awesome AU where Gerard is a recovering alcoholic art student and Frank is a nude model who poses for his life drawing class. This is inspired by a scene in the story.

Frank is sort of smirking at Gerard because Gerard's a giant loser when he draws and gets all *concentration face* and can only speak in monosyllables.

I really wanted to explore sunlight, shadows, and colour with this one. I think it turned out okay. Frank looks like Frank, which is pretty important. Gerard is... recognisable. Mostly I loved drawing (and looking at) the shadows. I added a lot of purple to the picture to balance out the yellow sunlight.

Frank doesn't have his tattoos because after, what, eight hours? I just couldn't be bothered! Also, it's surprisingly difficult to find good references for them.

Onwards to the drawing!

Gorgeous art! I really dig Frank's expression (and, hey, I have only the vaguest idea of how much work it took to create this. Even though I love Frank's tattoos, it's not hard to imagine that getting ALL of ink on him might've driven you bonkers.). Lovely play with the light and shadows. :)
