I am so in love with this picture. xD;; It's just fantabulous! =D hehe. Did I draw that? Wow.
Anyways, so this is my char Matrix, the tall guy there leaning down to kiss that cutie named Jen. They've known each other for a long time. See, Matrix is in a gang, he hates it though, but he has no other choice. Her brother Scott joined the gang, so that's how they met. She hates the gang though so didn't go there often. Eventually Matrix ended up helping her with some things and getting out of her father's house- who was abusive mentally and sexually to her. She had some run-ins with some bad guys before that used her and abused her- almost got gang raped by his gang the Daggons.
Matrix also helped out his best friends family after his friend was killed. Eva the little sister and her mother. The mother eventually died and then to avoid having Eva go into foster care or live with the Daggons (which Matrix would not allow)- so Jen took over and eventually ended up adopting Eva, moving out her dads and moving in with Eva. Matrix stays sometimes in the apartment.
SO- anyways, now that you've read all that, read some more! ha!
So, Jen asked Matrix if he would help her learn some defense. Matrix works at a gym and boxing place. So he said he would. She came in every night after work, when the gym was closed and he helped her. She had a hard time getting into it all- but was improving some. Anyways, so this night he was going to show her some defense from an attack from behind. He showed her what to do and then proceeded to pretend to attack her from behind. She then had this panic attack- because she had been attacked from behind a lot and it brought back a lot of feelings and memories. So, instead of doing the moves he told her to, she dug her nails into his arm, protested and then ran out.
He ran after her, asked where she was going and got mad at her for saying she was going back to her dads. He knew that if she did that, he'd probably attack her. So then after a bit more 'talking' she turned around and apologized and then he told her he'd never let anyone hurt her and then here's the pic. xB

The coloring is a bit different than I've done before. I added more undertoning than usual. I did the rain with a brush I got from a tutorial that can be found here: [link]
(when you make it, you can make the settings permenant by making all the settings and then making the brush again. The settings will then stick.)
So, there you go. =B
