BG: Stay by Smilika BG: Stay by Smilika
I'm so tired working with this one, so i decided finally stop the process before i'll ruin everything.

The scene takes place in Spellhold, after Irenicus ripped a piece of Rain's soul from her. After that she was almost one foot in the grave– fragile, weak, with deadly pale skin and unhealthy look. Kivan and other her comrades do their best to help her, and I love very much the moment when that always gloomy elf suggests to his leader to calm down and finally take some rest. Perhaps it was the first time when he felt real fear for the life of a woman who has recently began to mean more to him than just a friend. eh...))))

p.s: and why i so badly like to torture my favorite characters? =)))

Huh, funny fact -  I recently started anther BG series playthrough (it's my little tradition - at least one full run in a year) and what did I found? Your another lovely piece of art. (And on a margin my CHARNAME always is redhead ^^") It's so full of emotions that I almost want to dump Xan, and run all over to Kivan (again...). For God's sake, why we didn't have this kind of artistic emotional ride in actual game? I love your art, it's filling my heart with joy and very warm and sweet feelings. Thank You :hug:

lol, Xan is forever bro to my charname!  Few times she honestly tried to romance him, but whole process of flirting felt so unnatural to their relationships so I've decided to stop this "torture" fairly quickly. I'm quite happy with his friendship arc, btw. What i can't say about Kivan =D I don't have the willpower to resist and not to have romantic relationship with him! arrrr...CURSE YOU! Meow :3 :D (Big Grin)
