''... I couldn't bear to lose you.'' by whimsycatcher ''... I couldn't bear to lose you.'' by whimsycatcher
Oh, Iím sorry, but I do love me some whump and angst! I didnít settle on a specific scenario for poor Merlin and Arthur to end up like this, so Iíll let your fanfic-fueled minds decide, eh? xD

Been a long time since Iíve posted any art! I got a full-time job working on a tablet all day, which is pretty super for a fresh art school grad, but when I get home I have a hard time picking up my ownÖ Fandom is a persistent muse, though!

I used Paint Tool SAI. Experimenting with a new style, again. Hope you enjoy!

(characters and quoted title are from the BBC "Merlin" series)

Did you know that someone did write a fanfic based on this? It's this one: www.fanfiction.net/s/8703994/1… written by Ultra-Geek. :) Love your artwork by the way :heart:

You should do different demention them, like modern or something because your art is amazing and I think it would look SWEET!

Thank you! I've actually done some recent pieces for a Merlin fanfic that involves a modern setting. Check out my gallery if you're still interested! ^^

I love this so so much. I love Arthur's worried expression & Merlin's torn clothes and bruised wrists. Whoever had him did NOT give him an easy go of it, that's for sure! And (odd of me maybe) but I also love his skinny little scraped up legs and his bare feet. The way their hair, the leaves and the grass are all blowing around adds to the bleak, angsty feel of this. WONDERFUL!

Oh, I really appreciate those thoughts on my work, thank you so much! I'm glad you like the little (angsty) details I added. Well, it's probably more odd of me to have enjoyed drawing his skinny legs and bare feet, lol! ^^
