Draenei kiss by andrea-koupal Draenei kiss by andrea-koupal
Barnaby, my grumpy paladin gets a kiss from Jomon, my sweet mage.

Draenei are from World of Warcraft.

Btw...I love it! I think it's very sweet and sexy. And...not to nit pick, but....those are not 'barbels'...barbels are for tasting things only....The best way I have heard them called are 'chinticles'...I think it's imaginative and cute.
I wish I could find a sweet male draenei for a toon I want to make...*sigh*

Thank you! And I am surprised you haven't found anyone roleplaying same-sex couples in WoW. I know I've seen a few.

...And you can borrow Jomon. He's very sweet. >_> *Pushes him at you* Jomon: "Er, ah, hello!" *Blushes.*

I have to admit, I've been searching for a picture for Draenei males. I myself am gay and am tired of finding pornographic pictures. Yours is tastefully done and I admire your talent quite a bit. Good job on this, it's near perfect.

And yes, I'm a WoW nerd at heard. So much kudos to you. As for the "hater(s)". You don't have to look and can go find porn now, can't you?

So, to be perfectly honest, yaoi isn't my cup o' tea. But I greatly respect the fact you took the time to draw Draenei as realistic emotional beings rather than the sex objects most everyone else draws them as on the internet XP *shudders*

On an artistic note, I love the lighting and your smooth style, it's very fitting of the race =)

Thank you. :) I'll be honest too and say that having a male/male character pairing is unusual for me as well. Both of these characters generally take more interest in women.

The message here is that their friendship and trust between one another was great enough that they were able to feel love between themselves regardless of everything else. It might make more sense if one was aware of their backstory, and how they protect and give their lives for one another in a way that is very profound and selfless. Their attraction to one another is the result of their bond.

Barnaby is enslaved in an illegal fighting arena on Azeroth when Jomon finds him and purchases his freedom. Jomon basically turns his life around and encourages him to become a holy paladin, so that he is able to use his brutish strength constructively. Because of this selfless act and others, Barnaby is very loyal to Jomon.

Despite what's happening in this picture, I'm pretty certain Barnaby would have initiated the relationship as he's a much more emotionally impulsive individual. Jomon is the more patient and intellectual of the two.

Your last comment about them makes perfect sense.

Jomon looks like an easy-going fellow that would still be chill even if the sky were falling.

Barnaby on the other hand looks like he would stab you in the heart with a dog bisquit if you looked at him the wrong way.

That makes sense! My best friend Thomas and I are not gay, but we do feel quite close to each other and always have each others back regardless of the situation. ^^,

I can't play WoW at the moment since I'm at college with only a netbook, but I hope to try roleplaying a Draenei when I get home this December! I love their sense of loyalty and morality. I'm glad to know other people do too =3

*laughs* If you don't like it, you don't have to look at the art. XD Personally I find big, hulky men in love to be adorable and if you have a problem with that, you can go elsewhere.

Commenting that you don't like something an artist takes the time and effort to create is pointless and rude. If you don't like something, go elsewhere.

I dunno. It is up for the public to see and comment on freely unless the comments are personally insulting. So, that's unfortunate you are upset about it of course, but it is what it is. Good day.

As a general rule, negatively commenting on the subject rather than the art itself is boorish and rude. That you took the time to check out the image, realise the content wasn't to your tastes, and then make a comment to inform the artist as such, makes you an ass.

By all means, you have the right to express your opinion. There's a time and a place, however, and this isn't it. Tact, learn some. (Also, tolerance, but let's not run before we can walk.)

You do have a right to express your opinion, but with that also comes the responsibility of knowing when it's appropriate and when it's not. Publically posting on an artist's gallery that you don't like their work is about as tactful as going up to a stranger on the street and telling them you don't like their clothes.

In your case you posted basically expressing that you think the idea that two men can love one another is sick, and you think my art is sick. Since you cannot understand how this is offensive I do not want you commenting further in my gallery.
