Even now, as she encountered a rough bit, she dabbed at the grain of his face and it aligned under her tingling touch.
'You loved him, didn't you?'
"Of course I did. Now stop asking about it."
Sometimes, when she worked on his face, he could feel her affection for the countenance she carved. His face was beardless now, and youthful. It was more in keeping with his voice and with whom he felt himself to be, and yet it made him squirmingly curious to know he wore the face of someone Amber loved. She would not speak of him but sometimes in the brushing of her fingertips, he glimpsed the man she saw in her mind.

this image. I wanted to paint it all up because I love the scene so much.
From Robin Hobb's Ship of Destiny
, Amber and Fitzface!Paragon. Yeah I guess it's kind of a spoiler if you haven't read the Liveship books yet. Oh well, if you haven't read the books at all this probably is even more confusing
For those of you that don't know this much, Paragon is a Liveship, so yes he's alive, can move, steer himself, etc. Amber is... well... you'll just have to read all of the Realm of the Elderling books to understand her, she's far too complex and awesome for words.
DISCLAIMER: I know butts about ships and drawing them.
Haven't uploaded in awhile. I've been working on this off and on for like.. two months, and decide fuck it, it's done now. I've barely done any art at all over the summer, it's been really, really shitty. I miss drawing, but I just can't arse myself to do it.
I don't know when my next upload will be.
