Night Ride - Layd by Astra-cat Night Ride - Layd by Astra-cat
FINALLY, I've managed to find time to draw my entry for :iconakai--me: 200 watch OC drawing contest. I had so much fun with this piece, although, I have no idea if Haydn and Lenz are seriously out of character;;;; Sorryyy... 

The theme was a spring night and so I really wanted to draw Layd going out on a night time ride. :D I imagine they drove up to a beautiful lookout and Lenz dragged Haydn onto his lap for cuddling, though Haydn is embarrassed. ALSO, Akai... You're so right... Motorcycles are so stressful to draw. I can't believe I said I was confident. XD Jesus. Also, everyone, wear protective gear when you're riding! 

Anyway Lenz (guy on the left) belongs to :iconakai--me: and Haydn (guy on right) belongs to :iconzerojjsu:. Together they are Layd! XD I hope you both like the piece, they are such sweet children. 

The contest is still open if anyone is interested. Just head over to fav.me/dax60hs Deadline is 27 March! Do it...

I'm really torn. I want to win but I also want everyone else to win...  *panics
Thanks, I don't think this piece would make as much sense without the background,
so I'm glad you love it. 
I want to help, but I'm not sure how though. Any ideas? Maybe a tutorial or something?

Thank you for the support! I've always wanted to make a tutorial. Is there anything in particular you'd like to see?
Practice will get you there (boring response). I'm going to put up a redraw soon. Feel free to laugh at my old art! It's GaaraxNaruto.

Thank you! I wasn't sure how to portray a night scene without the sky, so I'm glad it looks good. 
I've never drawn a city view like that. It was so fun!

O.M.G. 
YOU DID SUCH AN AMAZING JOB!!!
Not only did you nail the personalities, but also the background, the story , the theme (of course!!!) and totally the motorbike!!! 
They're so hard to draw... But here you did a great job!!! 
This picture is so inspiring! As Zero said, "it's so lovely that it hurts" XDDD
I'm really grateful that you took time and made the effort to participate!!!! 
Thanks a lot for shipping Layd, too! SDKVJkdfBKDHGL I love that ship so much omg :heart: :faint: XDD 

Anyways, thank you!!! 

PS Thanks for spreading the word, too! >v<

Thank you! I'm so happy you love it. *candiehappynow
They are such babes! Totally sailing that ship hard. I might end up drawing them again,
if you and zero don't mind, because they are so sweet.

I would have loved to draw more of the bike in frame (NOPE!ABSOLUTELYNOT)
but I wanted the characters centre stage!

Thank you for the awesome theme. I was so inspired by it. SO INSPIRED!

OMHFLHLHL!!! absolutely, we'd love to see more Layd from you!!!
>//////////< aahhh it's such a honor!! I'm so happy that you ship them like this, 
we're crazy about them! xD 

XDDD I think it's cool like this, don't worry! Maybe if you had drawn the motorbike,
everyone would be staring at it instead of at the guys on it XDDDD everyone but me, that is XD

>////////< I'm gad you were!!! It's very inspiring for me as well, I'm glad the idea served as inspiration to others!! Q//v//Q

Yes! I'm so glad you like it. I got so excited when you said yes that I started right away;;; So eager...
Hopefully Akai will love it too.
That motorcycle... D: Never again. Or, at least, not for a while;;; 
Ahhh! Now I'm fangirling... These are the first OC's I've drawn that aren't mine. I'm so glad I didn't ruin them.
:heart: Thank you!
