Title: Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boys
Media used: Prismacolor woodless graphite pencil, 4B-8B grade & Derwent charcoal - dark.
Warnings: Large jpegs?
Notes/comments: eprime had the winning bid for my auction at help_japan of one R/S drawings! She donated $25 to MercyCorps!! YAY! She gave me a few prompts, and I chose: AU - Sirius dressed in posh school uniform. Remus in plain clothes, passing on street or some random location and making (sizzling) eye contact.
"Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy"
I always find it difficult to display these pieces on the wide-but-short Internet windows, so - as it's particularly important - I want to post a "close-up" right here, instead of linking:
The story I've made up in my head is one of an impoverished Remus, 17, at some sort of apprenticeship, always gets his break just as a wealthy Sirius is walking home (or to some sort of piano lesson or fencing session, lol). They both are harbouring embarassing crushes for each other, but fastidiously avoid giving themselves away as they pass each day...until today. :-D
I had Queen's "Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy" stuck in my head, this bit seemed particularly fitting:
I will pay the bill, you taste the wine.
Driving back in style in my saloon will do quite nicely.
Just take me back to yours, that will be fine.
Come on and get it:
Ooo love, ooo lover boy,
Whatcha doin' tonight?
There he goes again - there's my good old-fashioned lover boy!
Ev'rything's all right,
Just hold on tight!
That's because I'm a good old-fashioned lover boy!
Dearest eprime, I really really really hope you like this. This was, out of all the R/S stuff I've done, by far, the most challenging piece I've done. Not in a bad way, just in an exercise-my-abilities way. Lol. What made it difficult was the scale with the necessity to focus keenly on the perfect facial expressions. I'm...happy enough with their faces, so time well spent! And I also snuck and/or blatantly put things from your other prompts in there as well.
