Stay With Me by Chikukko Stay With Me by Chikukko
Traditional art of my OCs Arisalina Oliece and Restis Esthien. These characters are the protagonist of my story "The Black Earl" which is a somewhat prequal to "The Rebel Prince". It is set around 30ish years before TRP. The Black Earl is about Jestryn's parents when they were younger, when they meet and grow close to each other. Both quite young (She's 15, he's 18) and arranged into a marriage that would benefit both of their families. Arisalina and Restis soon develop a bond with each other despite their conflicting personalities; Arisalina is a polite and quiet girl who would rather read than socialise, whereas Restis is a flirtatious, confident man with a bad reputation. Their story is focused around a murder mystery, in which the two work together to find the criminal who has murdered Arisalina's father.

I spent a long time colouring the hair for this one, but I am pretty pleased with how it looks! University starts on Monday, it doesn't even feel like I have had a break though with all the exams and stuff I have had to do throughout the holiday .__. oh well.

Great piece. :)
Arisalina's hair is so beautiful and flowy. And I love the green ribbon adorning her wrist.
Restis is very handsome. I love how piercing his green eyes are. :heart:

I'm kinda working on making a TBE manga at the moment which isn't posted anywhere for now. 

If you want to read what I did on MBiAD, just go to and type My Boyfriend Is A Demon! and it should come up~
