“Being away from the world’s woes for so long... one forgets they even exist and ever need to be challenged. And when you can share it with someone you would madly love till death lets you part... you count your blessings and pray things never change... never end.”
-- Anonymous


When Saul and Zuri were left stranded on an island long forgotten by the interests of man, fear dawned on them that there was no hope of escaping it with what little was theirs to possess. That fear began to dwindle in time, though, replaced with aspirations neither dreamed of having when fate originally brought the two together against an adversary their individual concerns for vengeance guided them to. Yet vengeance was a quiet casualty somewhere in the time the two learnt each other’s hearts as they forgot how the outside world once hurt them, once drove them to despair. They gave themselves to a better life by then, accepting their fates together as a blessing and before long knew passion few romances in the past ever spoke of so clearly...

Such was the life Saul and Zuri had. What once was a prison to them became a sanctuary, knowing pleasure unending under skies that grew so familiar to them for the years they claimed a forgotten island as their home, their domain. Their world.



And with that we have something from me a little more... risqué. Now, I know I’ve drawn intimate works in the past, but they were... yeah. I won’t bore you with anymore stupid details than that. Enjoy.

(I would release a larger version of this with all the little details better seen 'n' all... but surely people don't care for that, right? Of course not! Even if that might be taken as dyed in the wool sarcasm!)

Still, if you do like what you see here, here's a small taste of what I have written for them so far...

At first I was like "Wow, look at the emotion, the sensuality, the passion, the oneness with nature as she flows like the water in which she bathes!"


Then I looked down, and... well, yeah. I'm okay with drowning like that.

Ah, but Zuri can be a compassionate woman. She would let Saul up for air once he started clawing at her legs for it... sometimes. =P

Your welcome! Thank you for the kind words... and I wholeheartedly agree. DA's got some serious quality issues. I've essentially resorted to only finding new artists I like via people's favourites/group galleries for years now, simply because it's sometimes a case of 'look at your own peril' if one was to just browse the site normally...

It turned out rather well <3 as with a lot of your works the movement is flawless in the picture, rather it expresses movement very well, and suggests the movement that isn't shown. The shading in the picture helps with the over all emotion from the picture. Most of all the water looks and feels like water should in a picture. Now if my sexy pictures turned out like this i wouldnt have to worry lol

You did quite a beautiful job here portraying Zuri. The detail and essence within the image are quite impressive. It is unfortunate that I can't fav it (for certain female reasons.) Rest assured that I am both impressed and looking forward to continuing our conversation as well as your story.

Thank you very much for sharing this. ^^

No worries! I appreciate the interest, too. Aside from yourself and maybe two other people at best, I haven't had much support from others for the writing side of things yet, so it's always a pleasure having our conversations. They help me think and plot! (And kept me motivated, otherwise I'd have probably moved onto something else by now. XD)

I know how that feels. The one struggle I've always found as a writer is having no real interest from others. The feedback really makes the journey enjoyable.
