Impious by ceilonn Impious by ceilonn
I'm not very happy with this piece. I'm struggling to get out of an art block right now :U 
You can look at this piece one of two ways: 

A. They're two homosexual priests struggling with their love versus a religion that condemns it. 

B. Canon SebastianxAdult!Ciel come before God to plead mercy on their love, permission for a demon to have a single thing that makes him happy.

As such, Sebastian also has to kinda repent for his sins. As you can see, even entering a church causes pain for Sebastian. 

and you all know i love my repentant Seb, even if I don't care for the religion itself. c:

This is so beautiful ;A;;;

The coloring is so amazingggg!!! Especially on the color/shading! The lighting really feels like a sunset (or maybe just light through tinted yellow windows), and, those clothes. :iconmusttouchplz:

Even through art block, you make a wonderful piece. //cries

I really like this one. The light coming in from the window gives the whole picture this warm, soft feeling to it.Also, your line art is crisp and clean as usual. 
Good job!

I'm assuming this is for one of your new RPs? I think i remember reading somewhere that you are doing a SebxAdult!Ciel RP.

*world explodes* 

It's done it's done it's done and it's better than I imagined like it always is aJSDKFLSDFSD :iconspazattackplz:

I love the idea of this, and I really think this image can be looked both ways with the same amount of effectiveness; I see such a deep message in image A, but even in the Kuro fandom, image B is a really intense and powerful one and fits well with their characters. I actually really like adult-Ciel c: 
Eiii and your new signature ;w; 


First I need to applaud you on the tone this image conveys. 
Color choice *0*I initially expected it to go from yellow/orange right to a dark shade of red and black, but I love this so much better. The dark magenta/purple works very nicely creating a feeling of hopelessness/despair/slight hope/#thesaurus needed against the light compared to what I would have imagined red would be. 
I also find it really interesting how light only comes in through one side/one window. I think makes the image have hope; like the light is slowly swallowing up the dark c: 

I just love their expressions; It's interesting how with many of your drawings, the character is looking straight at you; while in the sketch I saw, they kind of were, but now I notice how they are looking slightly upwards; and that takes my eye straight up to the cross. How clever c: 
And Ciel is crying and Sebastian is bleedding ajfkds this tugs at my heartstrings so much; 

Good choice in outfits, the dark cloaks that are not overtly images of priest outfits ajfkds (there's gotta be a name for them) 

Hahaha, off topic kind of, but it's really weird because that background image; the church, I just noticed that it looks very similar to the church I used to attend ajfkdsfd it's actually creepily similar except for the fact that we don't have a clock, although I kind of wish it did :iconmingplz: 

Great technique; your awesome way of coloring shiny hair; folds in the clothes, etc. And the shine on Ciel's ring~ 
And the subtle texture on the wall. Church walls aren't smooth ;0; and weird comment award goes to Momo


 
Wonderful job as always; I can't believe you make this kind of art while in art block, what kind of wizard are you, the fry eating gastropod kind?

Aaahhh MoisComments. Always the best. 10/10. 

I had some serious issues with the lighting. I fooled around with the original colours for ages, then switches to a dark blue sort of thing, and it was only during the finishing touches that I changed it back to this warm purply thing. c: I'm glad I did. The light through the one side is supposed to be sunlight after all, like it's sunset. c: 

With the signature, I downloaded some cool new fonts and i wanted to try them out. I can't be scrawling 'kohakuaru' on the walls in my lefty handwriting forever |D

i did sorta lose the 'looking upwards' effect but oh well c:

yes. i am a fry eating gastropod sushi wizard. and you're one, too. :iconhagridplz: (just the close relative, the brittle eating gastropod sushi wizard)

I looked at it and I was sure it's a collab with someone o_o something about it looks so different from your usual style. I'm not even sure how. It's actually possibly the fact that Ciel is an adult here and that looks so different from the usual Ciel. But the picture itself looks very powerful. The way they are standing really straight and tall ad confident. THe way they are firmly looking at the camera. he way light falls beautifully in it's many colors and I like the A way to look at this picture, because it gives it more depth and meaning and sorta adds to the feeling of empowerment. Although chaotic churches would probably not be happy with me supporting that idea. Man, it's fun to be pagan :D But this is Wonderful. Great job.

Thanks! I've actually been learning to use a new program, I actually built this in 3D before I drew it. Otherwise, I probably couldn't draw a church so well, haha. 

What sort of pagan are you? I for one am an atheist/secular humanist. 

Thankyou~~!

Ohh I see. That's actually not any less impressive. More so if anything. 

I'm...the kinda woman who believes in whatever she feels seems believable or logical or where personal experience has taught me it to be true. I occasionally doubt some of my beliefs and I don't have a certain religion of any sort.You might say I create my own religion. I also don't believe in God, Gods... that kind of stuff. Some one big higher force thing. 

You are welcome!!

We always had really great scenarios for roleplay :) even all of our roleplays are basically..in one big roleplay..(I mean he is a demon and keeps meeting Ciel always in different life, and he sees him dying every time etc)
So yeah I bet it will be great one :D :3
