Crimson lights the sky, the bird still asleep
Like a dream it shines, from heaven's safe keep
Childrens songs we sung, as soft as the breeze
Endless fields, our home, I long for those days


Lyrics: Growing wings - Drakengard 2

Drew this a while ago, about a month I think, on a "I dont feel well" day ;u; Guess my feelings are a bit different right now, compared to then, but the kind of "different" that is still "similar"... yeah :iconrazycryplz:

For some reason, I always listen to Drakengard music when drawing Lyzlot ´//////`Even if you can't see him well here omg the perspective was tricky in this one so please ignore any mistakes and the overall messiness. //like I said I wasn't feeling well when I drew this /)///////(.

Drawing in grayscale really made me miss working on doujinshis haha!

And oh dear, they're BFFLssss so NO HOMO kay? KAY? *trying to convince herself LOLOLOLOL* :iconymmudplz:


!story spoiler! *to read, copy paste into your url bar and then into a comment .u.*

Shinkami was being bullied a lot when he was a kid, because of how weird and freaky his skin looked when decomposing. The other children were calling him a freak and used to chase and throw rocks at him. If they caught him, they frequently peeled layers of his skin by force, because after shedding, it has the texture and chemistry of glass and sand, which scatters the light into a beautiful spectrum when held up towards the sun's direction. Thus it became a game to the other children to see who would create the best/biggest spectrum and for how long it would last, since Shinkami's skin decomposes with light after all.

Shin was very lonely and afraid to go outside as a kid. Whenever he did, he usually seeked out hills covered with blue-colored flowers. He liked going out in the sun, but since he was easy to spot because of his striking blue hair, he had to somehow hide it. Therefore he frequented hills with blue flowers to camouflage his little blue head while enjoying his sunbath after taking a few pills that help his skin ward off the sunlight.  *LOL LIKE A SNAKE LURKING IN THE TALL GRASS AHAHAHA snakes love sunbaths btw*

One day he failed to reach the hills without being spotted on his way there. The bullies caught up to him, but to his surprise a new kid appeared and protected him from them. That kid was Lyzlot. Yet Shinkami wasn't used to being treated that way so when Lyzlot asked him if he's alright, he ran away. A couple hours later Lyzlot managed to find him. Because of the bullies, Shinkami had dropped his pills while running away from them, so his skin had started to slowly decompose. When he noticed Lyzlot approaching him, he feared that the new kid that protected him at first, would now start bullying him as well if he found out about his abnormal skin. Yet before Shinkami could run away again, Lyzlot saw his decomposing skin, but instead of being disgusted, he let out a surprised and intrigued gasp. He was the first kid to ever say that Shinkami's skin looks really cool. And so, their friendship started, as well as Lyzlot's habit to gently play with Shinkami's skin *whenever it starts shedding, Lyzlot likes to poke it back in place  or gently remove it and blow it away with a puff, watching it fly a bit and then disappear along with the little spectra it created*. He also takes care to stand in a way that blocks the sun and casts a shadow on Shinkami whenever they walk in the open. Even at times when Shinkami swallows his pills and doesn't have any problems standing in the sunlight, Lyzlot still does that. When little, he also used to protect and comfort his friend whenever other kids were bullying him. With time, the bullying stopped since the other kids were scared of Lyzlot, who was very tall for his age. Also, both Lyzlot's and Shinkami's Anima are serpents, so they get along incredibly well.

Actually this picture is illustrating a moment of something that happens 5 months after the start of the story, where Shinkami and Lyzlot find out the truth about Shin's body and sickness.



"Ypnos" in Greek means "Sleep". The "Shin-" part in Shinkami's name means "sleep", that's why~ .u. Beucase of his body, he doesn't have much lifeforce and strength in him sometimes, so he's usually rather sleepy and takes naps during class LOL. Or when Lyzlot holds him v/////v Makes him feel safe ♥ BUT NO HOMO OK? *laughs* *wonders if anyone takes me seriously about the no-homo XDDDD*

Well wanted to upload this before running off to class :iconfeelingfreeplz:
