I'd planned to do this artwork ever since my brilliant friend posted the fic as a WIP before closing her fic journal, to the devastation of the world. Going for a xxxHolic feel - all smoky elegance, hiding an edge of steel and danger. This was originally supposed to be traditional media, then I found the round watercolour brush on Photoshop CS5 and it worked well so ┐( ̄ー ̄)┌  Digital it is! (and there's the undo button)

Their faces and a bit of anatomy still feels...off. I had to do some post-editing Frankenstein piecing together to get Yunho's face a little more correct because I had gotten some spacing wrong but...I hope the 'essence' of them is somewhat apparent. Still practising my digital painting skills. I was going for a softer feel but, all the same, I'm not very bold with the contouring so the planes of their faces are nonexistent(ー△ー;)

The two plants are monkshood and belladonna. The middle character says 'drug/medicine' and it looked prettier Jaejoong's shop is traditional so there could be Hanja characters on their labels.

References - Yunho and Jaejoong. Unfortunately, I lost the source for the Jaejoong picture, which I saved onto my harddrive. 100% sure it was from Tumblr...just don't know where. If you have the link, please comment here with it - I would like to credit them!
