Downed General by NukeRooster Downed General by NukeRooster
During his first few weeks of being incarcerated and going from a top ranking general to one of the nations most controversial criminals, Kurai had a difficult time adjusting to his new 'environment.' Ranson was often there to comfort him, despite what rumors were being passed through the House by guards, keepers, and Mary-who also runs the House aside Ranson. These rumors were exaggerated horror stories about 'exactly' why Kurai was in the House to begin with.

Kurai refused any food given to him other than by Ranson in fear of being poisoned. It was tried before and would be tried again throughout his imprisonment before thieving the Eclipse.

The House isn't a cold stone walled fortress that keeps its prisoners in cells, instead it's much like a limited roam mansion. One of the rooms Kurai often found a liking to was on the top floor that overlooked the surrounding forest.


It's more of a colored/detailed sketch than a finished piece, but I really liked it so thought I'd share. :)

I find this very fascinating! Excellent image, I love the way the two look, almost 'father son', I don't see too many images like this. Most males are too awkward to hug. But this, this looks like an excellent example of a manly, desperate, but highly affectionate (Non-sensual mind you) hug. It makes me imagine a very strong bond between the two, though Kurai doesn't look like he fully understands it. I really just like all the expression there is to read in this image, and the anime-ish dramatic background lighting and random papers flying actually really adds to the atmosphere, and ties the image together. I love how it all works together, and I also love the sort of 'gentle' type of prison structure you envisioned, very clever. I would actually love to know more about this whole thing! Great job!

I really that concept of a fictional prision you have made : D The picture gives the idea of a warmth feeling to it (even if Kurai doesn't want it) :3

Awwwwwwfhafahsf Kurai :iconcryforeverplz: SO SAD! I just wanna snuggle with him- no matter how deadly he looks/is :'D. Beautiful jobs on the characters/coloring hun! ^^

He's actually not hostile, but probably wouldn't know how to react with sudden snuggles. He'd probably 'nose' rub you back like a cat does if he was allowed and became used to your presence. X)

You make some awesome characters Tatchit, seriously *_*. By the way, is the story Kurai's in going to be made into a comic? Or possibly something else? =o

If I can make time, I'll try my best to make snippets/short pages so people can get a better idea of my characters and world. c: As for a full blown comic, as much as I'd love to start one, I'm afraid of slipping up and failing to go through with it. I still have a few tid bits and chunks to sort out concerning characters and such. But I'm starting to do sketch dumps on my alt. account and will begin doing more personal stuff this summer. :D

:iconhappytearsplz: Looking forward to the tidbits of your world then~!

Every time I see you have uploaded something new I need to open up a youtube tab and play some totally epic instrumental music, so I feel worthy of browsing your art :'D. Totally amazing stuff on both accounts- You're very fortunate to have such amazing skills, and I don't doubt you had to work hard to hone them as well! I appreciate art like this, so thank you ^^ and I hope everything goes well during your summer! :3
