That was already the second time that I did a linework that absolutely pleased me, but after coloring got something that wasn't really in my plan. I guess, either sleeping 4 hours a day isn't enough for me indeed, or I just start to want too much from myself as I try to not be worse than other participants of the challenge (who are incredibly talented, I tell you! I'm actually really amazed with the amount of skilled artists taking part this year!)
Anyway, it's Valentine's Day soon (which I'm not going to celebrate, of course), and isn't this a good reason to draw some luv stuff?

I think it is, and so I'm throwing at you a spoiler! :'D I'm sorry, I just got charmed with these guys' relationship while working on their bios, and so I madly wanted to draw them once again.
In general, it's not going to stay just a relationship of fellows in arms, hehe. As you may remember from Athelstan's bio, in case of relationship the most important thing for him is to find a soulmate who would accept him the way he is (an infantile freak with a hint at frigidity, seeming to get multiple orgasms only at the height of the bird's flight).
He's gonna meet that person, yay! :la:

Athelstan and Alexandria live and breathe for the same things, both being too abstract from reality and people around. They are very different from each other: he's an intelligent noble guy, in everyday life very compliant and easygoing, while she is a battle-ax from a family of the working class, with a nasty character and rather sharp tongue. However, Lex and Athel complement each other harmoniously. Together they are a good team, something like a perfectly working mechanism. After seeing them together it's difficult to imagine them being separate.
According to the plot, they are going to make friends almost once they get acquainted. Then their relationship is going to transform into something like siblings' attachment (Lex is even going to use the phrase "as you say, bro", rather often). And then all this is going to become something like what you can see in the drawing.

I must mention though that originally this couple was just my another otp (after Zven/Stas, heh), and in the canon story these guys were supposed to be just soulmates, meaning only the spiritual aspect. But almost immediately I realized that I wanted Athelstan to learn the taste of real love before he would die, and to let him and Lex feel that they were one in every sense of this word. Otherwise I couldn't help being sad about the poor guy: he was supposed to die heroically, but being loved by no one and loving no one. In case of Lex it wasn't better though: once married without sincere feelings, she divorced her husband and never met her real love since then, according to the original version of her bio. No, I didn't like this. MLS already contained enough angst and suffering, so I decided that at least these two could have a chance to be happy without any need to hide this. Considering that they both were really nice and brave guys, I thought they deserved this. So enjoy~

I remembering seeing the sketch and actually initially thought it was Zven and Agi. I really do adore how you color these things. The amount of color you get by using dry media is amazing and something I always wish I could do. I keep looking at the piece you sent me trying to figure out how you do your magic, haha. The pose is great, too. I find that I can draw people or anthros in whatever pose I want, but if it involves two together, it is nearly impossible for me, haha.

Surprise! :'D
I know what you mean, two bodies in a close contact can be really difficult to draw. In fact, even when just standing side by side without any contact, bodies may become a problem to do adequate proportions. But I'd say that practice helps here. I feel like it has become a thing I can do without feeling too much stress nowadays, but it still depends on the pose a lot. Lex's pose in this drawing made me feel my brain boil, but eventually I won x'D

I usually don't like love stuff, but this picture is really different from other love-themed pictures. This is the kind of picture where you really can feel what characters feel. This one really moved something in me. Also the more I look at it, the more details I can see, for example Athel's hands in Lex's hair or the shadows of grass. 
Seriously, this is so amazing and I have to say that the coloring is really good

Thank you! Although originally I wanted all the details to be more recognizable, I wanted to do more color contrast here, but I didn't manage for some reason. But I'm so glad that it still looks enjoyable! This means a lot to me.
One day I might try coloring it again though, as I have the lines saved on my laptop~ :D

I adore these two! 🤗 it took a second but I started noticing the subtle shading from the grass onto Athelstan's shoulders and whatnot. You're so good at coloriiiiiing 😭

I wish I could shade better though! I managed to depict the general idea, but the shading looks a bit different in my mind, so I'm a bit disappointed with how this came out ;__;
But I'm glad you like it  <3
