we are the better men by Brilcrist we are the better men by Brilcrist
Just installing CS5~ still not get used to the new interface~

X-men first class is the only movie that can makes playing Chess become as sexy as making-out;P~ and for this piece, i was kinda inspired by J.C Leyendecker's style~

Felt satisfied with Erik’s face in here, but not really happy with charles’s, coz…gooozz James, u’r face is kinda difficult to paint, perhaps next artwork, i’ll get more better~

and why you two haven't been married yet? U two should get married NOW~!!

i submit it on my TUMBLR as well >w< ===>[link]

There's also Star Trek with the whole 'Chess thing looking sexy' ;)

I rather like this photo...how their friendship seems so strong before it all goes to hell. It's a cool piece of work. Amazing job, and look forward to more. :D

*retrieves jaw from floor*
*faintly* You don't need to worry about James' face ... no complaints here ... certainly nothing is detracting or distracting from the stunning gorgeous perfection of this piece of art. Holy bloody sodding smeg, this is astonishing. Love the sharp focus on their faces, contrasted with the semi-softness on their hands and the dreamy softness of the rest, very moody and atmospheric -- the light is just lovely as well. Utterly wonderful.

Erik stop it. It is Charles' turn. Stop it, you cannot both have turns at once, that is illegal in the game. Not that you care what's legal and what's not.
...Be happy Charles thinks your funny, Erik.

This is really pretty. It makes me happy. ^^

The lighting and use of color are absolutely fantastic! x3

On a completely unrelated note, I totally agree! There's some serious bromance going on throughout the entire movie! I mean, it even can be seen in the other X-Men movies! Also, chess has ALWAYS been sexy! :nerd:
