"Nrgh," said Courfeyrac. by ColonelDespard "Nrgh," said Courfeyrac. by ColonelDespard
Couldn't resist this one - I'm sure many of you will recognise the story it illustrates, courtesy of the MakingHugoSpin kink meme. Possibly the greatest Courfeyrac line ever:

'Enjolras broke the kiss and pulled away, smiling and breathing heavily. "Do you still doubt my passion? Or do you understand, now, how much I was containing myself?"

"Nrgh," said Courfeyrac.'

Indeed, Courfeyrac. Indeed.

Well, I've never seen this pairing before. I liked it! I love the way Courf is looking at Enjolras. Actually, I love everything about it. And Courfeyrac, very eloquent response! "Nrgh" indeed.

The expressions are perfect! Where is this story?

Now I'm not one for slash... but it really doesn't get much better than this. "Nrgh". Couldn't have put it better myself, Corfeyrac.

I really like your style of drawing; if I might ask, is it something you whipped up out of your own head or did you draw (no pun intended) inspiration from other artists/styles?

Pleased you enjoyed this one :) Thank you for the faves!

It's pretty much out of my head, although I do sometimes use photographic references for anatomy (and of course use sources to try and get costuming roughly correct). There's a dash of Mucha (at least in the hair) and Rosetti there and probably a few others, particularly the Symbolists and later Pre-Raphaelites.

Thought I saw hints of Symbolists there ;) Thanks for the detailed answer! And you're welcome.

How did this one escape my notice?? DELICIOUS!! Always so very jealous of those writers around the net who command such inspiration! even makes me wanna read em!!

XD Somebody remembers!

Yeah, you go Nrghing all you want, Courfeyrac, no one's stopping you. :dance:

I think your work on the hands has greatly improved. They are as expressive as hands can get.
ColonelDespard Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2009
So glad you think the hands are improving! Still work to do, but I'm trying :)
