Edward & Bella- a graphite drawing (IF)

'Edward and Bella' (IF-Sugary)
(click to enlarge)

Tonight I really wanted to get back into drawing and I couldnt really think of anything to draw that interested me until I just started drawing this couple. I wanted to participate in the IF challenge since I have been MIA for a couple of weeks with moving. This weeks topic is Sugary. So I claim this is basically Bella and Edward both thinking 'His/Her kisses are sugary sweet' =D I know its probably not what the topic was intended for but its what my weird mind thought of .lol.

I really really love the Twilight Saga books by Stephenie Meyers. Its a really great series and in November the first film will be out in theatres! I cant wait!!! My hubby and I are taking a trip down to MS to see our best friends that I havent seen in 2 years the week the movie is released and we are all going to see it together since we are fans =) Its going to be great and Im counting down the days. We really deserve a vacation and we've never been to MS before. PLUS I really want to see my sissy =D

Anyway, I totally lost track of my point- haha! Since I started reading the series I always had specific images of the characters in my mind and this is pretty much what I had in mind for Bella and Edward. I suppose its not too far off from the actual casting for the film but just a little. Either way I like the mood in the drawing. You can feel the emotions, or at least I can. Definate Love, Lust and Adoration.

If you havent read the books, check them out. I read all 4 books in 2 weeks! LOL! Thats how great they are.

person is the wrong thing for someone else. So... good luck figuring that out."
