Purely Amazing!!! The absolute raw emotion portrayed in your art and stories gives me chills every time. Can never stop reading about such an astounding plotted story. A billion thanks for a story that has rocked me to my core countless times.

Why do you do this to me? I just had to go and listen to the song, and then I look at the picture, and he's begging me with his eyes to love him, but looks like he'd try killing me before letting me confort him. Desperately wanting someone but not allowing himself, and I want to drug him, and hide him, and love him hugging and kissing till he's bette, but I can't get him out of my screen.... (A bit resembles Neji in BtB - or my image of him, and my reaction...)

:worship::heart: I feel like I'm falling into his soul through his eyes.... Not sure if I've mentioned this specifically in the past, but I adore the deeeeep, dark, distressed tones you've been using in your work lately. The way it works with the unguarded eyes gives such an intense, intimate and rare peek into Karasu's vulnerability/humanity. Truly beautiful and evoctive work. Seeing those eyes ignites all kinds of rescue, save, protect, and comfort instincts. Gorgeous.
I look forward to actually hearing the song....My computer's being assy.
:clap::iconbeatingheartplz:Stunning Rayne....as ever!

Oh. My. God. Those EYES!! Rayne! It's like a photo, but deeper. It's truly like looking into the mans soul. They are so emotive. Far to many layers to fully decipher... I just keep staring. Absolutely amazing. You keep blowing me away with how you continue to grow in leaps and bounds as a visual artist. Im dieing in anticipation of reading the accompanying literary artwork!

This is so sad. Most probably because he'd refuse to see it as such. I agree, though, his eyes are extraordinary. It's really a wonderful piece.

Dang :iconclaussadplz: I never expected a song like that for Karasu. I always pictured him as simply the badass he is :iconbadassplz:
but I guess to become that badass you have to go through quite a lot... :petting:

I really love the emotion in his eyes :iconbeautifulheartplz: it really makes me wonder how he looks without that mask :iconbadassrussiaplz:

Good god Rayne, the only reason I'm not even commenting on your works anymore is because I'm left speechless and I would keep on repeating myself. You use similar techniques in each of your works yet they evoke unique and individual emotions within me... I aspire to be as talented like you in types or art like this >3<

hello there. I like how the image is kinda dark and then his eyes just pop at you. that shading is very nice, and that's a pretty good song to :) . i also noticed what appears to be a butterfly in the background? Any ways, i really like this piece, good work!

BAYOOTIFUL. :iconiloveitplz:

The eyes...again, the eyes tell so much. I love how they stand out; people always talk about how eyes show emotion, and the eyes here are the most prominent part of the piece. There are so many feelings buried in those eyes. I can see them.

Truly awesome. :icondelightfulplz:
