Trade: Ettin by lillemoy Trade: Ettin by lillemoy
"Well, if you are (what you love), and you do (what you love)
I will always be the sun and the moon to you
And if you share (with your heart), yeah, you give (with your heart)
What you share with the world is what it keeps of you"

Song: Give A Little Love - Noah And The Whale

Glitter-mits, you attract trouble, exposing your neck like that :D

This is Ettin, Cayran's little magician. A guy who is too adorable for his own good; looking at him makes people want to pinch his cheeks and do bad things with him at the same time. I bet he even tastes sweet. Like vanilla or blueberry or something.

And I'm gonna go and treat myself to a chocolate chip cookie for defying my artblock. Drawing a cute "twink" was just the thing I needed ♥

I hope you'll like your picture Cay :cuddle:



Ettin (c) *Aprodite

And, who says you can't draw a twink? You did an excellent job on this. :D

The colors in this totally made me dropped my jaw (hard on the floor, and it rolled off under my bed, rested at the deepest. It took a moment for me to snap it back in place.) The combination of gray, purple and blue is pleasing to the eyes. And the details of the fur, just calculating effort you'd put on it made my head spin. Awesome work, Nin. :)

I've neglected to follow your gallery recently! My sincerest apologies.

I adore this! I especially love the cool shades of gray and the bright blue slipped in. Gives it a very magical feel! Well done, you outdo yourself all the time! :)

*squee* OMG! Ettin is so lovely!
You captured his slightly feminine (but still incredibly sexy) figure and face so nicely :)
Well done. <3 I love seeing your stuff

Oh, I agree with you, Ettin's gorgeous. I loved giving him those soft features and ruffled fur. Cute twinks, can't help but adore them <3
And thanks! You may like my next submission as well, I've feeling quite productive lately c:

Indeed! I love my own characters, but Cay's got some really lovely simple designs :)
*claps* Yay for inspiration that allows ppl to be productive!!! :D I've been... moderately productive. More just pumping out designs for lovely Nemi and Cay's forum; the new revamped version of New Jellicle Generation.
I saw Munkus and had to drool a little bit... Mmmm sexy Munk with facial hair <33

Nin, this is beautiful. I love your style so much! It's so similar how I've always wanted my style to be, but can't seem to translate from my mind to paper. I can tell everything about this character just by looking at the body language and expression you drew. Ugh, I'm just so envious. I'm going to have to try to copy his head in my sketchbook to get the feel of how headfur SHOULD look. XD

I hear ya. Awfully frustrating to have your head filled with ideas and a hand that refuses to cooperate. But keep on sketching, you'll get it the exact way you want eventually, I know you will c: And thank you! I'm truly happy to hear that I managed to convey his character as well as you say. He's a really sweet character and incredible fun to work with.

You just can't even imagine the smile that formed when I saw this in my inbox. He is far more beautiful than I could have ever depicted him to be, and to be honest, I can't even really describe just how much I love this drawing! c:

He is perfect; absolutely perfect! You made him look so teeny-tiny and childlike, but nevertheless made him look somewhat his age. People are always figuring this 20 year old youngster to be 15 or so after all, and I LOVE how you've captured that quality. I also love how you did his black highlights; usually they are scattered all over his head, but the look you gave him might just have to stick! Can I just say that I also adore just how shiny and suckable his little lips are, and the blue highlights really make him pop. GOD. I love it all. Everything about it. There isn't a thing about it that doesn't scream Ettin. You are a doll, you know that?

Thank you so very much hun, and I am always more than willing to do business with you! I love it. :D

You're very much welcome love. And in case it hasn't come across yet, I'm thrilled you enjoy the picture so much ♥
I admit I had a hard time choosing between Ettin and Colline, but since I'm going to draw Colline anyway and I've wanted to draw Ettin for quite some time, I picked Ettin. He's such a darling boy and it pleases me to know that I managed to give a fair presentation. Even though I took a slight artistic liberty with his headfur. I couldn't make the 'scattered black highlights' work, no matter how many times I tried. Glad you liked the alternative all the same :D

:iconaprodite:
Aprodite Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2011
Oh, I love the alternative. :)

And you're drawing Colline? Well, aren't I the lucky lady! Something else to look forward too. I have a little Sam/Hayen action planned as well. c:

And I maaay have emitted an embarrassing girly squeal just now. I'm such a Sam fangirl, it's ridiculous.
