InuSess - Sleepless Endearment by HyperLittleNori InuSess - Sleepless Endearment by HyperLittleNori
Sleepless Endearment</u>
©Katie Smith (HyperLittleNori)

Dedicated to: my Gorgeous boyfriend Daniel. Not because he likes InuYasha or inucest lmao XD Just because I adore him so thoroughly and he's breathed the life back into me, and made my world sparkle again.</i>

I am quite proud of myself for this actually. I know Sesshomaru in particular isn't perfect but my artwork has come such a long way from the pudgy chibi-faced things I used to draw as Inuyasha and Sesshomaru lmao XD I can see improvement which makes me happy ^_^

I drew the characters out separately on separate pages with a standard pencil. Inked and scanned it then completely edited and coloured in photoshop. Took me about 2 and a half hours to sketch and then around 10-11 hours straight to completely edit and colour. Lol Yeah, a long time. But only because i spent ages playing with Sesshomaru, he took the longest, I wanted to really make an effort to make him look good since usually Inuyasha is the good one in the pic and he's the crappy one lol.

Please do let me know what you think, and constructive criticism is appreciated but NO purely spiteful comments since I did work my ass off on this and I'm proud of it :P

Tools:
Standard Graphite pencil
Tracing paper to trace the ink-version on so that I don't ruin the original drawing
4 different sizes of black markers to ink drawing
HP PSC 1200 Scanner
Trust Graphic Tablet
Adobe Photoshop CS4

HyperLittleNori Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Thank you, yes, I find the characters like Sesshomaru harder to draw as my natural style is the big-eyed, shiny characters rather than the sexy bishounen ;) lol Thanks for the advice though, it is one of my main flaws as an artist, I will have to work on it ^_^

Lol Practice makes perfect maybe? I'm determind to do a 'small-eyed' bishounen pic. I managed it with one of the original characters from my InuSess story but the rest of the picture was rubbish *facepalms* it's either one or the other XD thanks for the advice though :)

Depends if you're using an actual pencil/paper or a tablet and the pc - if you're talking tablet and pc, try drawing the sketch (rough outline) on one layer and then draw it properly on a second layer, that way if you make a mistake you can easily correct it. keep everything on different layers on photoshop, just easier to fix everything.

If you're talking pencil/paper I always use a soft leaded pencil to very VERY lightly sketch their outlines, and by outlines I kinda mean little sausage and eggs shapes, I only use the sausage and eggs for ages until i can see that the position and their proportions look right (since proportions is massively important when two people are in a picture, i've made this mistake many times >__<)
go awya from the sketch onces you've done the basic outline and come back to it with a fresh eye - even a 5 minute break can help you see things you might miss after staring at it for ages. Then once you're totally happy with the sizes and positions, start drawing your actual faces etc xxx

I love this picture so much!

I can really see the amount of time that you put into this work in the quality that it resulted in and I'm so glad that you created and shared this with us.

The second great thing it that this picture could be taken as Inucest (which is where I found it) or just as a brotherly bond, either way it is a definite must-have for my favorites. Great job!

Thank you so much! It's a dedication to my InuSess fan fiction but yes, I agree with you, it's nice that it too can be interpreted as brotherly love as well for those who aren't partial to InuCest lol ;) So happy that you love it so much. Thank you for taking the time to let me know. This is probably my favourite picture that I have drawn so I am so pleased :)

^_^ I just watched the fourth InuYasha movie, and every time I saw Sesshy I superimposed Inu on him in my head, and vice versa...Sesshoumaru: Die, InuYasha! Me: Awwwh you know you love him :3
