In the Garden of Noland by mr-redx In the Garden of Noland by mr-redx
This is perhaps the most beautiful and longest piece i have commissioned. This was done by the Awesomely Talented :iconshadaan:. This was, and i quote, "The longest piece he was commissioned to do." It took a month and a half to finalize and he went through a dozen sketches and thumbnails till i deemed it the perfect color, shade, and design. I just want to take this moment to say how much i appreciate him going through all this and that i believe this artist is one of the most talented artists i have ever seen and i thank you :iconshadaan: for this awesome illustration!!

Story:
-No words can describe the true poetic nature of this moment. This is just her, Ursula aka Empress, with the love of her life and the keeper of her heart, Juu Lee, in her lap surrounded by the private garden of the Empress of her own creation. There is now after battle and their never was. There is no crisis, no evil, no reason to be anywhere but here. It's just them. Ursula and Juu Lee. Two people in love.

Empres and Juu Lee are (c) of me!

This pic left me speechless when I first saw it.  Ursula and Juu Lee look so beautiful, at peace and in love it brings a tear to my eye.

Its exactly what I wanted. Ursula and Juu Lee are my star couple. No matter what drama or tragedy floats their way, these two will be together forever always in the end. And it's times like these that I love the most with them. The little moments of piece they are allow to treasure and be who they are in each other's arms:)

I'll have a story or two like that written for two of my main characters in Shadow Samurai soon I think.  It's a great notion for any star couple you write for to have a pure moment and place of peace and happiness.

Will do, though I think it's still pretty far down the line.  The next chapter I'm about to post though may be pretty close to that kind of moment though.  Look for it in a couple of minutes.

I cannot tell you how much I love this. There's the obvious beauty of the garden, as well as that of Empress and Juu Lee, but it's also nice to see them taking time to just be with each other, serene and in love.

That said, extra props to the artist for simple touches like giving Ursula a distant look, as if she knows how rare these moments are, as well as inserting notable thorns in her garden, to show that Empress is as dangerous as she is beautiful.

In short, this is perhaps the most perfect rendition of Empress I have ever seen. I cannot tell you how much I love this character, and seeing her portrayed by such fantastic artists reinforces this admiration.

This is amazing, Empress looks so powerful and confident here, yet soft and caring and Juu Lee is just so happy to be there with her love, hehe. Wonderful commission, especially the details on Ursula's armor. :) I'd say if this was alternate universe, Crimson would be jealous she didn't get to see something like this...hehe ;)

I know! This pic really shows what Ursula is all about: A strong, noble heroine who protects and preserves nature, but has a soft, golden heart for her soulmate. And Juu Lee just LOVES the attention;)

And i dunno, i'd say Crimson would be happy that in an alternate universe Empress was the first grl she had ever - ahem - "been with" o^_^o
