Can't Take It In -- Colored by KrisCynical Can't Take It In -- Colored by KrisCynical

I colored this last year around this time to put in a personal calendar and then I forgot to post it! It has my 2010 watermark on it, but it really should have 2009. Oh well.

The colored version of the blue pencil sketch "Can't Take It In":

Original description/concept behind the piece copypasta'd:

This image is entirely fueled by a prompt from my mom and the song "Can't Take It In" from the Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe soundtrack. I think it's the perfect song for Kagome in particular at the very last panel of the manga. Look at the lyrics and see how much I'm right: [link] XD

I know the Japanese are real no-no about PDA, so that's where this visual comes from. It's pretty much an "every day life" sort of doodle set after the manga of them walking through the village or wherever. Their pinkys are linked, but their hands would be hidden from the front because of their sleeves. I don't care how accurate it is, it was a cute mental image that kept bugging me until I got it down on paper because it's squishy.

Inuyasha and Kagome Rumiko Takahashi

I love how you have your own distinctive style that is truly Kris! It's simply amazing. It's unlike anything I've ever seen before and that's why I like it.

Japan is a very "no touchy" society. Physical contact in public is frowned upon, especially affection between romantic couples. All of that, even hand holding, is to be done in private. For them to hold hands while walking through the village would be a "no-no", so I drew the pinkies linked with the sleeves hiding the contact from the front.

One of these days I'm going to have to figure out how to put you on 'alert' so I don't miss any more postings. Look, I finally managed to upload an ID badge after only four years! >.<
