THE HUG by SkekLa THE HUG by SkekLa
During one of the usual  secret meetings of the skeksis' Diplomatic allegiance, at SkekAyuk's kitchen, SkekKel the Counselor said something which caused great joy to The Illustartor.
Awkward, strange and extremely emotional as she is, SkekLa did not refrain from jumping to hold the fierce and severe Counselor between her arms, to the point where his ribs crackled and his ornamental carapace was squeezedgainst his back.
Even though this would be a truly unskeksis conduct, the Counselor knows his liege well enough as to appreciate this gesture, and welcomes it by not shoving her away, while a small stifled smile forces it's way to his beak.

ENJOY!

Soon: MANY MORE NEW THINGS!

Stronge as strongest mountains!!! ^^
Those two got united by such fellowly bond through many hardships...they ended having a sincere fellowly bond!
Which is seemingly rather uncommon in skeksis!
ours may just prove otherwise tho ;)

I'm glad you do, Nimmr!!!
There must be hundred persons annoyed at me for allowing my version of the skeksis to "feel too much " XD
So imagine how glad it makes me to see you like it, and  my closest friends do too! ^^

Those two have been allies since too long! SkekLa really needed to have one of her overafectionate and un-skeksis outbursts with Lord SkekKel!!!

I'm so glad you like them here!

Hehehe THANKS!
INdeed poor Lord Kel doesn't WANT so much physical effussion, YET coming from one of his allies, who also happens to be his friend...he will not bash her head as he would to others...though yes, he must be very torn between shoving her off and just smiling and enjoying a hug...after all he's a fierce skeksis , a warrior and a politician! He would fear for his image and honor...but then, she seems so HAPPY holding him... :shrug: teeheehehe

I wonder what the counselor said that would cause such joy?
Reply
:iconskekla:
SkekLa Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2016  Professional General Artist
Who knows!!!
Possibly it was something related to a topic which woried and frightened the Illustrator...He likely gave her news which implied that everything was going to be alright...and she bursted with this huge level of happy relief, launching to him and giving him an unusual hug!

Not only you managed to capture the bond SO WELL... but also gave them faces that says everything, like they had dialogue between each other!

And the drawing style itself... La's cloak folds are MASTERSHIP... THEY LOOK SO DARN REAL.
The same with use of red color for the wrinkles of both's faces... so real...

They are bound by  many things they spent together as to not be true fellows, and where once they saw each other as "curious yet too different" they have became allies and friends *which is rare between skeksis*
