mintywolf, artist of that Lulu graphic novel I've been reccing, just left me an unexpected and wonderful fanart.

It illustrates a scene in the "Eight of Swords" chapter of Love Her and Despair, when Yu Yevon clamped down hard on Lulu for defying its will and taking too many liberties with Sin to aid her friends. As usual, the dream-interior of Sin is fashioned from its prisoner's hopes, loves, and fears. 

Full-sized version is probably NSFW:

Eight of Swords

I love all of it, but especially the Yu Yevon glyph in blood. When I tried and failed to illustrate this scene, I sketched the shadow of the rune printed on the snow, but this is more dramatic.

Also, every one of Auron's swords is perfectly reproduced. Beautiful work. 

And Lulu's expression and posture say, "Bite me." Which is exactly right. She couldn't do much at this point in the story, but she could at least be cussedly stubborn. 

(Thanks again!)

I'm glad you like it! :D ::tailwag::

If you want to pm me your mailing address I would be happy to send you the original!

Hahaha I almost never finished the drawing because of all those swords (especially Masamune good golly). Ornate weaponry is not one of my skills.

And aaah I just was really struck by this scene. I loved how proud and defiant Lulu still was despite the horror of her imprisonment (and the unanswered question is how long had she been like this?) and despite not being able to do anything about it except remain stubbornly unbroken.

It's a great picture! I went to DA ... and remembered the password for my old 'melchar' account there [it'd been about 2 years since I'd forgotten it] ... so now I have 2 accounts there. ^_^ So it was an especially good picture!
