My Sword, My Shield, My Brothe by Lienwyn My Sword, My Shield, My Brothe by Lienwyn
Now I've finally gotten this one out of my system...
It's been haunting me ever since ~Himyaviewen was here :XD:

The one with black hair is ~Himyaviewen's demon Akira and the one with brown hair is my demon Axl...
And they are BROTHERS. Alright?
And it's NOT incestious. Allow me to make that clear from the beginning.

They just happen to be very, very close - although they show it in the strangest ways, except when they are sleeping. When they actually cuddle. Like crazy.
And... let's face it: They are pretty adorable, aren't they?
Two really, really dangerous demons cuddling like small kittens...
And they do love each other, yes, very much.

And, just for the 'naaaw's, I want to point out the importance of Akira's left hand - the one that Axl is holding against his chest and that misses one finger. That finger was lost when Akira saved Axl's life, and ever since Axl has been rather fond of holding that hand... probably because he sees it as some sort of proof of Akira's love :3
It's adorable X3

This is the first time I draw Akira... and when I finally do, I force ~Himyaviewen to design the tattoo on his back, because she hadn't done that before x'D
I am SO evil.
Not.

Anyways.
Lame title, yes, but oh so true.
These brothers would protect each other through everything, and be ready to sacrifice pretty much anything for it as well...

:heart:

Deras långa hår är så fiiint *___* Jag gillar att det är så få färger - mest brunt och blått. Och att det blåa på tatueringarna "pratar" med det blåa i gardinen.
Snygg vinkel också :3

This is one of those pictures where I love to read the descriptions ^^ It just makes the art all the better, not that it isn't on it's own, just me personally I love to know what's behind the scenes so to speak lol I love this cuddle picture. It's so cute. You are so good at these! :aww: And I'd like to say too I thought your title for it was very poetic and it caught my attention ^^

I am glad to hear that :)
The description, in this case, is there to make the picture better. Or explain it more correctly.

And... well... I am glad if you liked that too ;)
It's a pretty cute title to tell the truth :XD:

Bond between siblings can be very strong, even if you actualy don't share blood.
This is very nice :aww: It reminds me of my little sister which I used to watch as she slept holding my hand.
Adorable :heart:

Well, to tell the truth, I have some problems with calling people brother or sister if they aren't of the same blood as me... But that might be because I have a strict outlook on family - at least when it comes to myself.

Naaw... sweet ^_^

I have very loose outlook on many social things :D Sometimes I have even problem to care about age and gender. They are just OK or not ok, wise or not, funny or not... they are individuals and I take them as that. sometimes it's bad. Family are people which are closest to me. Maybe because in my family there are only three persons which have full blood relation to me. (Grandfather, mother and one of her brothers) My official family is odd in many things :D including fact that my youngest uncle and aunt are younger than me by one and three years XD Maybe it started with them because we were raised as siblings. ;)

My sister is sweet 11 years old girl :aww: when she doesn't spark with somehow sarcastic humor at the moment :D I sooo love her.

Well, I don't see the age thing either, mainly because the mental age matters more than the physical one. I mean, sometimes I'm shocked by how old some people are, considering how childish they behave. And gender doesn't matter at all.

But the family part does, mainly because blood bonds are important to me I guess. I can settle with calling my friends really, really close because calling them sibling would somewhat diminish the fact that they are my friends, and that I got to know them as such. Of course, blood siblings can be your friends too, but the difference is too big for me to be able to cross.
Siblings are one thing and friends another, and the day I start to blend them is when both of them lose their individual value, since there are things only friends respectively siblings should be able to do.
I can honestly admit that I have friends that are closer than my sister though, so it's not about who's closer or not, but both of them have different conditions, and thus I cannot just... see them as the same.

I guess a part of me want to keep them so separate because I treasure the friendship because it's not so obvious. If you have a sibling - real, fake or whatever - you are supposed to like them. But it all becomes hollow when you actually don't have the same family connection, which means that you CAN break it up - like friends do, because that's what you really are.
Of course, blood related people can cut their ties with each other as well, but they will always be connected anyway - and that's the bond you can't get with a friend no matter how much you try.

Even so, my concept of family is looser in the sense that I call half siblings my siblings, and the only people I call 'sort of siblings' are the children my mother or father's boyfriend or girlfriend has from a former relationship - because they do fit in the term family in the sense that we live with the same parents, but they are still not related by blood.
I am, however, uncapable of calling other people than my mother and father mum and dad. It's just impossible.
(and yes, this became a long comment. Mainly because my family senses went nuts a couple of days ago due to the anniversary of my little sister's death (half sister if I am to be precise, but as mentioned, that I don't care about))

well... I don't know my father, I never accepted my step-father which betrayed me, my mother is too often behaving like my younger sister, my half-blood sister called me mother (and had a reason for it) for a long time when she was very small, my grandfather consider me a daughter, my half-blooded (and younger as I said) aunt and uncle consider me a sibling and the two persons who really raised me after all are not even blood related to me but I won't hesitate to adopt them or be adopted if they wanted...
So I suppose that is the reason my family concept is pretty fucked up. But the main point is that it works and I am not alone in this world ;)

I can understand your view on family if that's how you've been living. Not saying that it's bad, just that your experiences are so different from mine that it's natural that we have different views :)
And yes, the most important part is that you're happy and pleased ^_^

Long flow-y hair is one of your specialities, and colouring with colouring pencils. Axl's hips don't lie and end of story :heart:

I like this pic. I don't know much about the characters except what I've seen on dA, and that's not enough to -know- them... but I like it anyway. The arm-and-hand-interaction makes it better than most cuddle pics - this is actually... uh... focused. If you know what I mean.

These two are just adorable together, and you definitely did them justice :heart:
But it had to make you really sleepy, drawing them like that. I know it would with me if I slept mere 2 hours :)

I am way beyond any point of return when it comes to loving these two... :heart:
I mean... they're just... I don't understand half of what they do - or WHY - but I love it all nevertheless, sooo much...
And they're just so friggin' adorable I'd cuddle down between them if I now didn't know what would be the consequences of that :XD:

Adorableness... :love:

Heh... let's not try to do that :XD: They would so hate us for it >_>
