Finally finished! A project between commissions :) I even did a speed painting of this, so go check it out :) In the beginning youll see how I set up the scene. Its from a program called Daz Studio and I am absolutely obsessed with it. Expect more dynamic paintings in the future :) (once I finish this list of commissions).
Based off of course, the best Feyre and Rhysand out there, Barbara Palvin and Toni Mahfud.

Do you know what the most popular book among WWII GIs was?

So I don’t ever want to hear about how boys won’t read books about girls, or how we need more “boy books” in YA, ever again, thanks.
