James and Sirius by L1V1D James and Sirius by L1V1D
tumblr reblog [link] (I apologize for the two different versions going around. I toned down the eye burning colors, and fixed their super long legs - yep, they were originally even longer than this. But yeah, the crappier version is already going around tumblr.)

Yay! I'm pretty much extremely unhappy with the anatomy in this. Like, its embarrassing. But their faces are okay, and I like the pose if I hadnt messed it up.

:iconjames-x-sirius: is having a contest, so I thought I'd do a little picture to promote it a bit. I'm not entering, because I am friends with the person running the contest so that wouldn't be fair. But I am donating prizes, and judging.

The theme is "Up to no good" so there's a lot open for interpretation! And it's not a slash contest, if that is what you're thinking.

Please check it out - the prizes are pretty good. Even third place walks away with 700 points. And there's other goodies, such as a sculpture and a neat little puppet you can win. I mean, if you were ever going to enter a contest just for the prizes, this is probably a good one to enter. (And of course you can donate a prize if you want to, too).
More info: Up To No Good ContestHey Stags and Mutts!
So we've received enough interest in the contest that I've decided to move forward with it! The theme of the contest is...
Up To No Good!
That can be interpreted any way you guys want! The more creative, the better!
This contest is open to anyone in the DA community! Participants are encouraged to join the group but it is not required and will not influence judging. We are looking not only for people to contribute entries, but to contribute prizes if they would like.
The only real rules are that entries have to be created for this contest specifically andthey have to feature both James and Sirius, though it is not limited to merely them*. There are no restrictions except that this is an art contest and we will not be accepting any literature entries. If there is enough interest in a literature competition, then we will host another contest at a later date.
There will be three winners and entries will be judged by :iconL1V1D: and :iconHideTheDecay:.
First




Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling

Hi ! Your drawing is wonderful !
I have a fanfiction named Véga Black (based on the Marauders era) and I put illustration in my chapters. Can I use it ? I'll credit you of course and I'll put the link of your deviantart ^.^

Haha, this is actually one of my least favorite pictures. I've removed it from all folders in an attempt to *hide* it. I don't want to delete or store it, but... I'm rather amused that it is my most popular deviation. I look at it and only see the awkward pose and overly long legs.

What? Siriusly? ;)
Well, that pose must've been horribly hard to draw, but I think it turned out really well. I mean: why shouldn't two people sitting in the same armchair look a bit awkward?
XD And the long legs just gives them the right teenage-boys-look, in my opinion. I would never have guessed that you were unhappy about that! XD

I accually find this to be one of the by far best james and Sirius pic I have seen (and they are my favourite characters, so I tend to be a tad picky ;)). Be proud of it! :D

Oh, and I just adore how you drew James - especially his hair. :aww:

It was a rough pose, yes XD My original idea was actually to have James sitting on the arm of the chair with his feet kind of planted in Sirius's lap. But that post just wouldn't work at all. I couldn't get the two to line up right, so I ended up doing this instead. I think it mostly looks okay outside of the arm on his head. Something about that isn't right, but I don't know how it could be fixed. And at this point, it's too old to bother with.

The legs, I think Sirius's are a tad long but okay overall. It is James, once again, who is the problem. His are horribly long XD But again, I don't know how I could fix it. If I shortened them his foot wouldn't touch the ground, and not only do I think that's silly given his age, it would also loose the way he looks to be holding himself up a bit. But anyway. No matter now XD

I do really like Sirius in this one. But the pic is so awkward and not natural overall that I'm definitely more embarrassed of it than of some of my other stuff... I tend to be like... even if the coloring job is really bad, or the pic is really sketchy... If it is more accurate with anatomy, I'm a lot more satisfied with it than with something that is finished prettier, but looks awkward.

They both look a little gay. I don't mean this as in I think they look bad or anything but just it has this vibe to it. Am I the only one?
I still think this is awesome.

Sexual attractions aside, intimacy doesn't necessitate romance and I have no problems with two close friends sitting together and joking around. I love them, and I love their relationship - just friends or more. Thanks for the compliment :)

Thank you and that was very well put. I have been watching a lot of youtube and doing things online sense I got internet and my Netbook and have learned to expect rage, sarcasm and terrible English.I am happy when ever anyone replies in an educated manner.
Well that was a rant.
O and check out my junk (I write cool

No problem! as *HideTheDecay said... you were just being honest XD I love them either way, and if somebody think this looks slashy, that's okay with me - its not a bad thing. And if people think they are just friends, that's okay too.

Considering she ships them and drew them for the James-x-Sirius group, I'd say that's probably not the biggest stretch to make.
