KuroFai by lacrimadoll KuroFai by lacrimadoll
Pen
Paper
Colour pencil

First ever fan art of KuroFai. :D (I got inspired so hush)
I don't know if it's the scanner or my colouring is just poor D:
And it's been a while since I used colour pencils.

Btw, is KuroFai really canon? I'm still confused D:

Ahh I love thissss! Kurofai is canon, not like obvious Sakura Syoaran canon but more subtle like Clamp yaoi can be. Like when Fai wore a furisode, a women's kimono, which if a male wears it it means he's the lover of a warrior.

This....this is truly, ASTOUNDING! Words cannot describe how incredibly amazing and beautiful this is. O__O I simply ADORE KuroFai and this is one of the best drawings I have ever seen of them.

Do you think you'll be doing another of them? Because this is just stunning and I would LOVE to see more KuroFai from you. *.*

OMG SO AWESOME. The pic is very well drawn and I love pics that look they were taken right out of the manga! (even prettier colors since manga is black and white lol)

As for KuroFai being canon, (SPOILER ALERTS TO COME) CLAMP (the authors) are notorious for showing straightforwardly primary couples (like Syaoran and Sakura) and having one or more gay couples who are only strongly implied as background or supporting characters (like in Cardcaptor Sakura, YukitoxTouya, although you do get the whole 'you're my most important person' line with those two which basically equates to 'I love you,').

The Japanese culture is very unique in that people aren't as loud and straightforward with feelings like 'I love you,' and from a marketing standpoint, since the majority of manga consumers are Japanese people who belong to a culture where homosexuality still isn't as widely accepted, it's just smarter to go with the 'strongly implied' when it comes to these types of couples, so that people who are adamantly against it will still pick up the book and think 'Oh, Kurogane loves Tomoyo-- (which is why they also sometimes drop hints for the characters so that throughout most of the manga you can have fans thinking they're NOT gay-- like the whole FayxChii thing where you find out that Chii was actually modeled after his mother) but TRC is cool because it borrows characters from CLAMP's other works, and they are always with their lover from another work, so Chii has Hideki and even though Tomoyo didn't have a lover per se, in CCS, she was in love with Sakura, so it's a no brainer for true CLAMP fans that she wouldn't be in love with Kurogane.

Also, even though a lot of mangaka will HINT at couples (like KuroganexFay, KuroganexTomoyo, FayxChii), most authors have a favorite and will make them well known toward the end of the series, so by the end of TRC, Kurogane and Fay have been through so much and sacrificed for and supported one another so much that it would be down-right ignorant to assume either of the other two hetero couplings are the true couple, in my opinion.

Anyway sorry for the rant. I REALLY like your pic and I fav'd it too since I think it's gorgeous! I can't believe this is your first try at drawing the two!
