“These violent delights have violent ends.”
― William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
Here are Romeu and Juliette-- my spin on the classic tale. (This is the morning after their wedding.)
It's been an ongoing story that I first created as a joke for ~LexieWolfe
but became serious.
Here's a little back story, for those who are curious:
Taking place somewhere in the 16th century (haven't quite nailed it down, yet) in Vallenar, Chile, Romeu and Juliette belong to separate, rival families: the Montoyas and Carballos. Based on the original Shakespeare play, their love suffers the toils of an old, forgotten feud. Along with them are Tyrus (Romeu's cousin), Mercurio (Romeu's best friend), Ella (Juliette's cousin), and Charlotte (daughter of the English ambassador). They help and hinder the plot as it pushes forward, a thousand miles a minute.
There's a lot more to it, as well. But, ehh. Another time, my dears.
The lineart is forever old (it's been on my to-do list for a while) and while I was coloring, I saw the teensy flaws in it. It's suprising how you can improve over a couple of months!
(Please forgive my anatomy errors. Sumimasen.)
