Abel and Esther: Her Secret Admirer by Elly3981 Abel and Esther: Her Secret Admirer by Elly3981
The bath house scene from my fourth Trinity Blood fic, 'Hidden Feelings, Forbidden Desires' [link]
drawn by DA member, La-Sera. You can also find her other works here: [link] For those of you who haven't read it, its a scene where Abel accidently stumbles upon Esther in Astha's bath house and hides to keep her from noticing his presence ;) I also have a second version of this scene that can be found here: [link]

La-Sera is certainly a very talented artist. The sensual atmosphere is wonderfully projected and Abel looks fantastic! The water and roses was wonderfully drawn and I love the pillars were drawn. If there's one thing I'd have to nitpick, it's Esther's face. Abel's portait borders on realism but Esther's just look very flat and her hands could have been worked on. Unless La-Sera was using distance to reason out why Esther was drawn that way, I think that part could be improved. This is certainly a very interesting scene and I'll keep in mind to read your fanfic. I'm sure it'l be good (>^.^)

I'm glad you like it :) I think the design of Abel/Esther resembles that of the novels more then the manga which I like better. I didn't read much of the novels before deciding that I didn't like them enough to continue reading since I find them too dark and depressing for my tastes; the manga/anime has more light and humorous moments :) I believe Esther's face is not so visible because of the distance between her and Abel, plus the steam coming out of the hot water ;) She's very comfortable because she thinks she's alone which she isn't ;)

Lol I collected both the anime and the novels. The novels are darker but I like the details in it and the humor seems more well placed than the manga. The manga is the one I look to for the art and the novel I look to for the well written plot, story and descriptions. Both are amazing since they're different and so I love both.

Yea, I was thinking the distance and steam could be the reason lol. I still think it would look alittle better with more details on Esther while just softening of the edges would work for the hazy steam effect. Still a very lovely picture and I favorited it <3

I heard that the novels were sort of left incomplete due to the untimely death of the author which leaves the ending up to the imagination of the fans. The manga, however, is still on-going and I wonder if it will go the way of the novels but since it takes so long to update, I imagine it will be a while before we know for sure :)
