    Why don't you threaten me with a good time?

This started out as a doodle because I wanted to draw bruises (that sounds horrible, I know) but I really liked it and I decided to take it to the finish haha

More Kye and Rilu in the cyberpunk AU because I just can't help myself
someone send help
...Rilu looks so smug and possessive here and it makes me really happy

For newcomers, they are both ladies ヽ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

Also on Tumblr!

First I wanna say that I absolutely LOVE your style, and your amazing characters and the diversity in just about EVERY thing and aspect. I'm rarely at a loss for words, but going through your gallery sure makes me speechless..

What I wanted to say regarding this drawing though, is a thing I once noticed with a friend of mine. It's just a minor thing, that might help a lot with the authenticity of bruises. Lily (my friend) is really small and the trash bins in the hallways of our school back then are big, square metal boxes hanging maybe a hand wide below her shoulder. One day she ran around a corner and got caught with her arm on one of those things - hard. So she didn't just have a huge bruise but also a long cut right in the center (like ony Kye's cheek). The funny thing was though, that due to the cut the bleeding from the bruise wasn't pooling under the skin as usual, but was released through the cut. So the area around the cut was normal but around it still was the regular bruising. So, dunno if that helps or you will remember it next time you draw bruises, but it's just one of those little knacks that make things seem more realistic x)

TL;DR: A cut within a bruise (like Kye's cheek) releases the subsurface pooling blood, therefore there is no bruising directly around the cut itself. ^__^

AHH, thank you so much!
Honesty that makes a ton of sense, thank you for taking the time to explain that to me! Honestly I'm surprised I didn't think of it sooner...bruises happen from internal bleeding so a cut would leak all that built-up blood. D'oh :|
cool:thumbsup: just one did you come up with the title?
