Colored Version of THIS: http://www.sofurry.com/view/342523
I really like the way it all came up, though I screwed up on the edging a bit, left them too hard. but it's an older pic and I still like it, so here it is~
This is two of my characters, JEIBU, I'm sure a decent number of you regulars around my character recognize him. And the other is SORL. I HAVE posted a couple pics of him in his EARLY CONCEPT phases.
Back story to THIS moment here is...
Sorl, is a character of MANY problems. He's an albino of his kind known as Solendras. Solendra are typically very dark colored and his tribe were extremely superstitious and were avid sun worshipers. THE EXTREME conflict that resulted in him having to go into exile is that he has a disease similar to xeroderma pigmentosum (XP). Exposure to sun and UV light is EXTREMELY harmful to him. His people began to see him a demon and thought the suns (two suns, common dual sun system) were going to kill hi for a reason, and one day gathered to throw him to the judgment of the suns.
His mother raged and brutally beaten a few of the people responsible for nearly killing him and took here sun to safety and eventually left him in exile for his safety.
Upon entering his adulthood, he had become a lone creature of the night, but only left his home in a full-body covering, reflective, cooling, get-up. Though he was far from many, he always ended up near some village or town and ended up being chased away because of his ghost-like appearance. Everyone saw him as some mysterious, giant, threat and often attacked him. Sorl stands at 8'3", were as many races of Almosae, average at about 5 feet. (Sorl's people average at 7-ish feet)
Sorl had began to become hostile after being warded away from every home he had tried to make himself. He lashed out violently one night at a location near were Jeibu had been and was sent in to investigate.
Shorter version now is that after the conflict, Jeibu begins to understand the situation and actually helps Sorl out and calms most of the people down. Time goes by and Sorl and Jeibu get to know each other a bit more through various events and Jeibu ends up being an enormous help to Sorl.
Sorl begins to grow extremely attached to Jeibu... and THIS
Sorl isn't violent, he's a big fucking MUSH, and he starts to feel gay for Jeibu too. Jeibu not really sure how to react because Jeibu's actually asexual. Asexual in the sense that sex just doesn't really occur to him. The thought of it or any real desire for it, almost nonexistent. He really likes the affection though.
So, Jeibu just rolls with it and is just happy he did well for someone.
LASTLY, this is the -only- picture I've ever drawn of Jeibu.... SMILING. It's weird. Usually because I draw "post-broken" Jeibu. THis here is prior to his "breaking."
THANKS FOR READIN, I GUESS.
