Wouldn't Be Better by SerenaVerdeArt Wouldn't Be Better by SerenaVerdeArt
"Wouldn't be better if you loved me?
You would trust me
and believe anything I said.
You wouldn't shun my company
because you'd be happy to stay with me."

"And wouldn't be better if you were deserving of love
instead of just demanding it?
wouldn't be better if you gave any reason to feel love for you at all?

And wouldn't be even better
if you actually knew what love is?"


So I had this pencil drawing sitting around since before Valentine and decided to ruin it by colouring it digitally, as another way to distract myself from the Cinera work (as if I could afford distracting from it).

Vehnas, making weird statements and gettign powned for them.
Well ok, considering the huge amount of occasions he gives Istaaz on a daily basis, one could think he kinda enjoys getting powned u__u

I kinda wanted to dedicate this drawing to all the people who always leaves me super cute/funny and overall nice comments on all the Istaaz/Vehnas picture... I know I never replied them, which I suppose makes me look like an uninterested piece of shit, but I actually have read them like over nine thousand time and they always make me all fuzzy and happy for no reason other humans besides me can comprehend.
So, really, thank you all, DekaStar :heart: Elenfrog :heart: 3rdMask :heart: RCris123 :heart: Etherege :heart: TheDivineMissM-94 :heart: Saiyan-Chang :heart: Nadyanilo :heart: stananamaria :heart: Voievoda :heart: twisk :heart: Ekeeya :heart: haius and I know I'm still forgetting someone, sorry, but I love you all.

I just discovered this shout-out by accident, and I am really touched.  I don't spend basically any time on DA anymore, but I remember your art was always gorgeous!  (And your story was both interesting and very creepy, lol :XD:)  I'm really glad that my little comments made you happy.  :)

You did not ruin this by colouring it digitally :iconaaahhplz:

That little description of them is so amazing! GO ISTAAZ! :iconkakapoplz:

I think I speak for all of your IstaazxVehnas fans (and just fans in general) when I say we know how busy you are, you are a very popular artist and we see how many comments you get on each piece and we know you can't possibly reply to them all, if you did we'd be questioning your authenticity as a human :shifty: And we will keep leaving messages on your art because not only is it amazing and you have a remarkable ability and truly wonderful and interesting characters, but also because we know you appreciate the comments and that they motivate you.

I for one will always try to put the love and awe I feel at seeing a new work of yours, particularly a new IstaazxVehnas piece, into words even though it's probably not possible by English standards unless I write EEEEEEEEEEEK a lot in my comments and use a lot of caps lock and emojis.

:heart: :heart:

Your drawings always feel so...real...I don't know, it's like I can picture how the touch of them, their hair, their clothes and such would feel. With this drawing it happens too, so beautiful ^^

Eh beh, il dialogo ci sta tutto. Ma soprattutto sono stupende le risposte che gli d sempre Istaaz. :rofl:

YAY! I've been desperately awaiting these two to show up again. I love it, love it, love it! Istaaz is so passive, but i feel like one day she will lash out at him....
Voievoda Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2014
I am conflicted Vehnas looks sad...and I sort of want Istaaz to make him feel better....but then I remember who Vehnas is.
And it looks excellent! Not ruined at all!
I am so glad you've drawn them again, I've been missing them <3

I just thought you were anti-social and didn't respond to comments. xD I love your art. :)

I love his face. It's so realistic and not just young and pretty like most couple pictures are. The whole thing just has a very real feel to it. Great job. ♥
