I kindda have this feeling, that the background is the mirror that allows Istaaz to see again, and that its shattered, and that in some twisted way Vehnas made her marry him in some twisted way. Just thought I would throw that out there.

An incredible composition, though the characters seem blind, you brought them a fantastic emotion! I love the symbols you put in this artwork, the symetry and contrasts, it has something hieratic, sacred and really disturbing too :) With this couple you alwas managed to surprise, puzzle and enchant us :)
And the coloring is so impressive :love:

I don't think I've ever commented. This is beautiful as always. Istaaz is gorgeous even though she has a sad look. :( and Vehnas... :iconstareknifeplz:

Those symbols on his hands still make me curious and they both have rings.. on the same finger.. but on opposite hands.. :iconimthinkingplz: There must be some kind of symbolism here..

The emotions you are able to portray is gorgeous. :love:

Hmmmm what's this ring on their fingers ? è3é

(Yeah I'm focus on stupid details XD)

Vehnas, sometimes you leave Istaaz alone ? Or even at night you stay to watch ? è3é

I... I kind of want to smack him, or something... And at the same time, there's this weird undercurrent between them. Not sure if you mean it this way, but sometimes it feels like Istaaz almost enjoys what Vehnas does. Or maybe that's just because you draw them so much XD

E ora arrivo io con le mie domande stupide: chi la dice la frase? O.o No perché se la dice Vehnas, ora mi sorgono i dubbi sulla sua indole. :wow:

Uhm... nooooo! O_o Ecco, quello che temevo! Non è del tutto insensibile come pensavo, ecco perché mi "attira" in qualche modo (anche se dovrei dire 'subdolo'). U.U :lol:
