Akin to Kindness by DesShade Akin to Kindness by DesShade
He traced the skies, following the steady direction of her tiny hand.
A steady patience shone in her eyes, as she continued to scan the heavens amidst the stars.

It was nights like this that he felt he truly saw her best, when the movements of the day had released her from her duties, allowing her tender mind and spirit to softly wander, lost in the gentle gaze of the stars.

Her hand stayed but a moment, as a warm grin lit her face. Touching her head to his muzzle, she identified the source of her affection.

"That's your star," she said, with a sincerity in her heart her small voice could scarcely contain.
"It lead me to you.. the night she left with the storm."

A benevolent grace lit his eyes as he gently whispered, "Nomine, you are my star."

ZOMG I'm so corney.. ><
Aannnd! In obvious news I finally made good on my fore mentioned promise of updates!!!
Aww go me~

These two characters have been with me for so many years now... they were my escape all those years ago back in school. ^^
They were my ideals, my aspirations, my physical form to the belief that there must still be compassion in this world, even if my life seemed devoid of it.

I am so very proud of how much they've grown. Some of you, though not many may almost recognize them from this much older pic ([link])
Their appearances have grown along with me, and evolved to encompass a much greater beauty then they ever initially possessed.

I must apologize for that nasty watermark, but until I can design my own It will remain stamped across their visage.
I love you all, but I fervently refuse to loose them.

Feedback is appreciated (pwease be kind!)
And Thank you all so much for viewing, and a special thanks to those of you who keep my DA page alive.

i love the art. do you have the story writen on your site?
DesShade Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2009
I don't sadly..
Writing isn't my forte, so I've been more focused on my art as of late.
I tell their story with my images, rather then my words ^^

Haha, there's such a gap between this one and the reference one. ^^
Man. . . I love the softer painted look and the faint, smaller feathers at the top of his wings. He has such a sweet face and the gold accents on his cheeks and horns are a very nice touch.
Very well done. :D

The horns are my favorite part.
