Under My Skin 45 - Smoking Hot by LJ-Phillips Under My Skin 45 - Smoking Hot by LJ-Phillips
Next Under My Skin goes up this weekend and will feature Korhann's OC in the bg (part of her prize for the last contest.)


After Tyr said "I love you", Rabbit panicked and Mist-Stepped. Naked. *

He just manifested in the lift to LLoyd's between two members of the Stone Squad (on their way back from the gym.) They don't seem to mind a naked Smoke popping out of nowhere.

The Coven Stone Squad is made up of gargoyles. A tough warrior race, the female gargoyles hold the economic power and run the aeries while the males are trained as warriors and earn resources for the aeries by hiring out as groups of mercenaries when they come of age. 

In the gargoyle culture, same-sex relationships are considered perfectly acceptable as are heterosexual and bisexual relationships.

Notes: No one makes gay jokes at the expense of the Stone Squad because they're even bigger then Skins and incredibly tough. Only two Skins have ever gone to toe-to-toe with gargoyle soldiers and won. And that's Vinnie and Tyr. 

* FYI Rabbit sleeps naked.

the one thing that would make that scene perfect for rabbit is if Tyr was in there with him. ;)

Well, I have a minute to write this, so lemme see if I can make it good.  XD

First, thank you, belatedly.  I really should have fan-gasmed all over this the day you put it out, but...meh.  Regardless, thank you for bringing your take on gargoyles into the world of Skins at last!  The anticipation of wondering how you would make them appear, if they would be contenders in the hot lineup of manliness you've already made, the tentative hope that they would look as lust-worthy as they would be fear-worthy...all satisfied!  Excellent choices in color for both the Stone boys you have here, and perfectly posed!  Tyr would have had his brain melt out his ears and given his suppressants a run for their money to keep him out of his Second Form if he had seen this.

The additions of horns was expected, and I am very, very happy with how you rendered them.  I was expecting something more angular, perhaps, so seeing them appear more organic and natural was a pleasant surprise.  They do raise a question in me: do humans on the island ever feel out of place, having round ears?  Skins, Smokes, Stones...everyone else seems to have ears you could gut a pig with, while humans have our round little hearing-holes.  Ever make anyone insecure?  Or envious?  I ask because I'm nowhere near the island, and I'd punt a hobo over a cliff for pointy ears.

The scale-like textures on the gargoyles' bodies are another addition I didn't expect, but am very pleased with.  The breaks of smooth skin between the rough patches lends something to them that I think some other contemporary gargoyles lack: a reminder that gargoyles were originally designed to only vaguely resemble humans.  Retaining the stoney textures makes them seem more...gargoyle-ish, to me, and suit them well.  As always, your vision of classic monsters and mythos is surprising, and leaves me hungry for more.

Vanessa: Double-Bubble, Toil and Trouble. Tell me the names of the Ponies in the Daily Double!!
Jordan: Vanessa, you know your not allowed at the Tracks anymore...
Vanessa: Poison ONE 'Triple Crown Contender' and everyone get's their shorts in a bunch!!

Heh, that darn song. I remember it was everywhere back in the day. it was like an audio virus. And the tune would get stuck in one's head and repeat on a loop for days...
the horror, the horror - -

Ah, well at least if Vanessa and Jordan are at odds over the ponies, they're not joining forces. I don't think the world could stand up to their combined might :D
And personally, I see nothing wrong with poisoning off a Triple Crown Contender. After all, it was only one.....

Poor Vinnie isn't allowed near a racetrack. Not after the last incident when he reverted, chased down and killed one of the horses. I think the sight of all those fleeing "prey" animals is too much for the average Skin.

Jordan: Rabbit and I are going to the Tracks.

Vanessa:  I would lend you my pass to the Jockey's Lounge, but you don't want to date a jockey. The sex is over too fast, and all they say is [taps herself on the butt] GOOOOOD girl GOOOOOD girl.

Jordan: -------Vanessa, I'm dating Vincent.

Vanessa: ARE YOU!? O.O Well, that would explain why he screams at me when I slip into the shower with him, I just thought he was shy or a virgin....or Impotent.

I've thought about it but I have limited monthly data so I don't want to use it up livestreaming (plus I don't know how to livestream.)

but that is the most awkward Bunny got into XD
I bet that Bunny thought for a small moment that scape without thinking much was not the most smart thing to do XD

he hate have long hair, because always become messed, he was not blessed with good hair XD

I think we'd all like to see that but Tyr is so possessive of his Bunny - I don't see that happening :D

Yep, I thought it was so cute :aww:
The pictures with long hiar look nice but I prefer him with short hair :nod:

So my boyfriend and I are arguing. He says your stuff is painting over pictures ie photshop. I say you start from scratch with just a canvas. Which of us is like?

Hope u had a bet going with your BF, my dear cos you'll win  it. Here's some of the stages of painting one of the gargoyles fav.me/d6v8p68 As you can see, I start from scratch, not over pictures.

If I can find my original sketch of my piece in my chaotic studio, I'l include that as well.

 Sometimes I work with acrylics or gouche as a starting point and scan it and then paint it further using a digital tablet. Other times I start with a rough sketch which I've scanned and paint it from scratch on photoshop using a digital tablet. You can see some steps in it here
