DGM: Reunion in the Orchard by Tomecko DGM: Reunion in the Orchard by Tomecko
Yet more sappy fanart of my current favorite anime pairing: Allen and Lenalee from D. Gray-man.

Still trying to get back into the hang of digital shading. It's been a long time. Also, it's a passable background! Wut.

Sketched in pencil, inked and colored in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

Edit 03/30 '13: Realized I had a couple outfit details wrong, changed 'em.

Aw, thanks for all your comments! I meant this piece as sort of an unwritten sequel to a fanfic I wrote, where Allen and Lenalee agree to meet secretly. The 'Sweet Dreams' piece is also meant to follow this one (they take a walk around the orchard and cuddle by a tree).

Yup, it's called "A Kiss and a Prayer." www.fanfiction.net/s/8868002/1…

If you've ever gone looking for Allena fanfic, then you've probably read it, because there's so few out there. T_T

I know that feeling... that's why I started writing DGM fanfic, because there wasn't enough Allena for my liking! :XD:

I swear Yullen is the most popular ship in this fandom (not that I hate it, just not a yaoi fangirl), and it doesn't help that the fandom is so small. Sob.

The background is pretty! I love all the little apples :D Lenalee looks really pretty as well, I love how vivid the colors on her look :)

Thanks! I tried lena with black hair as well, but with all the black in her outfit, it's just not colorful enough for me.

Glad to know my years of drawing apples for a living actually pays off in fanart for once. Maybe I subconsciously chose an apple orchard as a setting for that very reason...

Haha, well if you're subconsciously drawn to apples where are all the Ryuks!? and Snow whites!? =P
And yeah I know I've mentioned this before but I love the super dark teal green of Lenalee's hair I definitely think you made the right choice :D
Random, but have you cosplayed her before? I don't feel like I remember seeing you cosplay her but I bet you'd do an awesome job.

Ryuk was my fave character in Death Note... never did finish any of the fanart I drew for that series.

I'd like to cosplay her someday! She's my fave character because I love her powers (probably because, as a biker with major leg muscles, I love seeing kicking-based attacks). I don't feel like I have quite the right look for her (in fact, I'm working on a Road cosplay first), but I won't let that stop me. I'd love to do her second uniform. I feel the gen. 2 uniforms didn't get enough love - Hoshino must have hated drawing them, because every character almost immediately had it torn to shreds or otherwise removed. And then they all 'outgrew' them at the end of the story arc (despite flashbacks showing Lenalee wearing a gen. 1 uniform at the age of 9, so clearly growth spurts never used to be a design-changing issue before).

Yeah I love Ryuk too :D L is probably my fave though :love:
I think your face transitions well to most characters but you also just do an awesome job transforming yourself and creating really high quality cosplays :) You do have the tiny frame for Road though and I love her also. The second generation uniform would be cool, idk if I've ever seen it done in person.
