a Gypsy and a Pirate by Lusc-Fire a Gypsy and a Pirate by Lusc-Fire
This piece was done for two respected friends and fellow artists: Mel :iconjavadoodle: and Kat :iconravekitten:. These are their characters Keira Amori and Captian Alejandro de los Santos. I wanted to show them how much I appreciate what they have done for me. They might not think they've done anything, but they have and it means a lot to me. I thank them both for their genuine interest in my work and for their wonderful comments. I especially want to thank Mel for her thoughtfulness. :heart:

Yes, I know that Mel and Kat were holding a contest for these characters and that i missed the deadline. I actually never intended to enter this into their contest. Their contest just inspired me to do a little drawing for Mel and Kat. Plus i couldn't pass the opportunity to draw a gypsy and a pirate together...:giggle:

Since the only information i had about these characters were what was provided for the contest, i took the liberty to make up some of my own stuff (i hope Mel and Kat approve...:D). When i do a drawing with specific characters i have to have a story to go along with it. I think it gives the characters and the drawing itself a more realistic or a more personal feeling. This the story i created for this drawing:

On a small secluded tropical island full of lush trees and bright flowers, two lovers are dancing at the waters edge. Alejandro is teaching Keira a dance from his native home. The dance is graceful and sensual, but with the unsteady ground Keira is anything but. She trips over her own feet and lands in Alejandro's arms. They laugh together like two school children. In a daring move Alejandro bends Keira back over his arm in an ending dip. Surprisingly, the dip is flawless...and suddenly they aren't laughing anymore. Time has somehow stopped, the waves aren't lapping anymore and the sinking sun has frozen in the sky. Keira and Alejandro have forgotten about the outside world and all their senses are focused on each other. A passionate desire equal to the burning intensity of the setting sun grows within them. Alejandro slowly pulles Keira up against his chest. The warmth of the evening and their dancing had caused Alejandro's hair to curl slightly at the ends. Keira had only a moment to notice how beautiful it make him look before Alejandro's all too familiar smirk graced his face and he had his lips on hers.

inked with pigma pens and colored completely with prismacolor colored pencils. Touched up slightly in photoshop.

Mel and Kat, i hope you enjoy this! :hug:

Lusc-Fire Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
nope, doesn't really have a title. It was really just a quick scenario I whipped up for myself so I could give the illustration more depth.

I guess I just keep writing that under most of your pictures xD

The gypsy reminds me of Esmeralda...but that ist probably just because she IS a gypsy xD
the only female gypsy I know, i guess xD

This... I have no idea what I was coming upon, but this is just... beautiful. There's no other word to describe it. Romance is usually NEVER my style, but I love this...

Ah, your story was so cute. :D I could imagine it all so clearly.

The romance between these two is so connected. :heart: The idea of a pirate and a gypsy is too interesting, I'm so glad I came upon this picture. :D Her clothes have so much detail in them, and the anatomy on Alejandro came out great. :aww:
Kasolyna Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2009
The more and more I look at this picture, the more I think and am in awe. This is truly wonderful, and I can feel the love coming off of them. You can see the love and affection in their eyes, and it truly inspires many thoughts in my head, many ideas of romance and for stories. You are amazing.
