Breakdown -X-Men: First Class- by Shaliara Breakdown -X-Men: First Class- by Shaliara
I watched X-Men: First Class some days ago and I LOVED it. And discovered I lust over Michael Fassbender's Erik ^^;

Also, the (b)romance >.< (And I didn't even had my slash googles on, but Tumblr did the rest :iconiseewhatyoudidthere:)

I've been reading X-men comics for 10 years and only I've thought briefly about the relationship of these two. Now it's clear, LOL.

This scene is somehow inspired by the famous satellite one. I loved it :D Like my boyfriend says, it's difficult to make a scene like that one without having it gone cheesy or awkward... Instead it came out perfect. Erik has some issues controlling memories and feelings so Charles helps him and the such... I love angsty thingies too. The tremendous ammount of fanfiction I've read of Erik/Charles 'til date does help a bit too :iconimhappyplz:

Ok, I struggled a lot with anatomy in this one and also with poses and mood. Everything digital, even the sketch. I think I modified poses so much that I would have gone crazy if I drew this one with traditional tools >.<

BTW, drawing some modern clothes for once in a while have been a good change...


Some credits
Some references used for different parts (not accurate): [link] and [link]
Pencils: *sandara, ~pelleron and some of my own.

Also thanks to :icontoscanorevenge: and :iconmunia: for that looong and funny conversation on Facebook (We pair up Erik/Charles FOR SCIENCE!) and for helping me out with mood and colours! :D

I owe you another one, girls (which is a WIP)... also, for science.

La verdad es que las expresiones te han quedado tan bien que da una penita tremenda ver a los dos así, tan desesperados, como si pudiesen ver el futuro de soledad que les espera y se estuviesen agarrando a un clavo ardiendo... U_U Necesitamos urgentemente un "What if" en el que su historia conjunta acabe bien. :D

Me encantan las cosas así desesperadas porque son las que me mejor puedes dibujar precisamente por la fuerza que tienen (o sea, el angst)!

Me he leído ya más AUs en los que terminan juntos (y las historias que salen de eso) que ya ni sé, pero me encantan y en cada uno digo "Yo quería que acabara así...". Al final son los mejores fanfics porque suelen ser los más originales :)

Y de la cotidianeidad que sale de esos fanfics ya ni te cuento. Hay un par de autoras que la escriben PERFECTAMENTE :)

Y muchas gracias por la ayuda y opiniones en esteee! :D

Pues si eres tan amable de pasarme alguno, te lo agradecería mucho, porque en el mundo de los fanfics lo bien escrito es rara avis digna de ser contemplada. XD

Y de nada, para eso estamos. :D Ya sabes que puedes preguntar cuando quieras.

Me encanta como quedo el color al final. Creo que el degradado de cálido a frio es ideal. Aunque generalmente pienso que tus ilustraciones suelen estar muy muy bien entonadas.
Han quedado de un monos, ains, dan ganas de achucharles en abrazo colectivo XD

;A; this is such an emotional piece! I really love the dark shadows everywhere, they really add to the angst. Erik looks so devastated, and I just love how Charles is trying to protect him, holding onto him like he's saying "it's okay to let go." So lovely. ♥
