Echo Of A Memory by avadrea Echo Of A Memory by avadrea
"As if to prove her assumption, a tall man who obviously wasn’t watching where he was going nearly collided with her. Kagome gasped as she teetered on her wooden sandals, but the masked man reached out and steadied her. His hand lingered briefly at her elbow, and then he murmured a hasty, “Excuse me,” before striding away.

She watched him go, her melancholy momentarily forgotten as the echo of a memory tugged at her heart. He reminded her of the past, somehow. I wonder why? Maybe it’s simply that he’s wearing a yukata? Or is it the long hair?"
-forthright "Pale Shadows"

My first Sessh/Kags art. This is from my favorite fanfiction Pale Shadows by forthright : [link]

Yeah that is Sesshoumaru with Kagome. In forthright's story Sesshoumaru is hiding his demon heritage so his hair is black instead of the pretty pretty silver we all love so much.

Fanart of InuYasha I dont own these characters.

The moon *laughs* reminds me of the Judas-mask from the Tales-games: when you wear it, your face can still be seen, but no-one recognises you...

Pale Shadows is, by far, one of my favorites from her. I LOVED how she depicted InuPapa-sama!!
I think your picture is GREAT! I love how Kagome's make-up and hair turned out. And Sesshy's mask looks awesome, too!! Love his ever present crescent moon, there. :giggle:

I wonder if he feels ashamed he has to hide his demon heritage from the world? Nicely done artwork though

I don't think he would like it very much at all. Sesshoumaru is a proud demon lord. But he is also one who has the determination to survive. Especially if he has something to live for, like in this wonderful fanfic.

Oh my gosh, I love this story so much! I think that you have done a wonderful job of capturing the moment. I love Sesshoumaru's mask! You also even included the hexagonal pattern on his obi!

You've captured the moment wonderfully!! I love the mystery of Sesshoumaru's mask and the lingering sense you have definitely captured in his touch. Oh and love the dreamy-like background as well! Kagome's surprise is very genuine! lol

Oh, wow! This is a delightful surprise! You've done an amazing job with the characters, and I love your attention to detail! (I see that pattern on Sesshoumaru's sash, and putting a crescent on the kitsune mask is a fun twist!) I'm so pleased that you enjoy this story!

Thank you! :heart:

very nice, i love kags expression!

just a note, if your going for the traditional make up look, like the kind geisha still wear, the make up extends down the neck, it doesnt stop at the jaw :3

avadrea Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2010  Student General Artist
*nods* Yeah I was torn over that. I debated on going full traditional or leaving her neck clean so that people could tell she had makeup on. I might edit it ^^.

Rishnea Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2010
i think if your really going to go for the white base you might as well extend it to the neck n_n

doing the eyes lips and strong red blush up by the eyes can give a nice traditional yet not totally painted look too

*nods* thanks ^^ I think I know what you mean form the references I looked at. A saw a beautiful back view of the geisha makeup. They do such a lovely u shape on the neck. I might be able to show that from the side. The hair isn't traditional up-do either. But I don't think I can draw that. LoL. Thanks for your advice. ^^

Oh, you did! The mask, the plain dark yukata, Kagome's expression... everything! Wonderfully done. And I take your word when you say that you'll do more fanarts of this oneshot (;

Her writing style is quite poetic, isn't it? I love it. It's so enchanting!

Yes she is able to capture moment and scenes so brilliantly in a wonderful simplistic way. She dose not laden her stories down with to much description yet you still are able to strongly visualize the scene as it unfolds.
