The SWC: Cloudwatching by The-Starhorse The SWC: Cloudwatching by The-Starhorse
"They ate until they could barely move, but it didn’t matter, as George had come well prepared, and there was no shortage. After that, they lay around the dwindling fire as the sun grew warm around them, and their overstuffed stomachs slowly settled back to something resembling normal size. George, Charlie noted, seemed to feel no shame in pillowing his head on Fred’s shoulder, and neither did Fred try to shove him off.

They talked as they lay there, explaining the whole course of events, though leaving out any part, of course, that would require them to say the words ‘Fred’ and ‘dead’ in the same sentence. Fred listened quietly, one arm crooked lightly over George’s chest, as they told him what the last week had been like."


A scene from Fox Ears. I forgot the fire. But I'm too tired to paint it in now.

SWC = :heart:.

EDIT: Just FYI, I painted this in Painter, and when I put it into Photoshop to resize and stuff, the colors were like woah saturated. I'm not sure why Painter looks drab compared to PS and my web browser, but I'll have to watch out for that in the future. Oh welll. I do like bright colors. :)

The story, by the way, was EVERYTHING it was cracked up to be, and more. I posted feedback to it earlier in the month, and was reading it again today and weeping quietly - again - over my lunch break. I added it to my signatures at the forums where I am a member.

This is fantastic! I know it's a scene from Fox Ears, but they all look very young and (to the untrained eye) innocent, which is neat because I never picture them that way in my head. I have my doubts that the twins were ever innocent, even when they were young. :)
But being from the scene, they come off as 100% sincere and serious, which I imagine is a rare event. Not every day you re-Fred someone.

Yeah, no one is smirking, so they all look so serious. Very not-twin-like. ;) But I guess even the twins have serious moments. Thanks, I'm glad you like it. Though by now, I see ten thousand things I'd like to have done differently. If I can get through some of my work this morning, hopefully I can start on new arting. :)

My friend pointed out that one of Charlie's arm are longer than the other, then I argued that he may have one of his hands more under his head so less of the hand/arm is visible. Was that on purpose or just a small glitch? (It have started to bug me that I don't know it.)

I noticed that when I sketched it. I think I was making one of his hands more under his head, but I can't remember my intent now, since it's been a while since I drew this. :) It was on purpose though, whether it's correct or not. :)

Poor George. I think he was just so overwrought at that point that...well, he just didn't feel too bad about being a bit glued to Fred at that moment. I doubt they'd normally be all huggy, but, well, when you've been de-Fredded...:)

Thanks!

This was one of my favourite scenes in your fic and believe me, there was a high-pitched fangirly squeal when I saw this in my watchlist. I just love how you portray the SWC's close relationship and the twins' bond - you don't go overboard to the point where it's too unrealistic as some authors and artists might. It's very believable and once again you've captured it perfectly in this picture :heart:

The-Starhorse Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah, this was one of my favorite scenes, too, mostly because George finally got what he wanted -- to rest, and be with Fred. And thanks for the compliment...I love these three together, and I work hard not to overdo their sense of closeness. From what I've observed, guys actually have more physical contact with each other than girls. It's mostly shoving, wrestling, hitting, etc. But it means the same thing. When a guy grabs another guy in one of those "buddy" headlocks, I don't care what you want to call it - it's a hug.

So I like to make these three close, but I don't want to "gurl out", you know? They shouldn't be holding hands or any damn thing like that. So thanks, glad to know it doesn't come across like that. :heart: (Especially since there's waaaaaaay too much sicko girled-out fic/art out there.)

Aw, thanks. I had to rush a bit on the grass, so I wish I'd been able to take the time to do it right. But thanks, glad you like! :) (Grass isn't hard at all, at least not the way I do it. I could do a thing showing my process sometime if people are interested, not that my process is much compared to a lot of other peoples' out there.) :)
