VK : The King and the Queen by Xin-yii VK : The King and the Queen by Xin-yii
<edit> I added more shading to show the moonlight direction:meow:

:iconrlytearplz: GOD I'M FINALLY DONEEE!!
commission for :iconpkdesigner: and contest entry for :iconzero-x-yuki-club: Huntress and the Hunted contest. :D
many meanings behind this~ :iconilikeitplz:

MEANING 1 : (Huntress and Hunted)
I don't care, this signifies Zero as the pureblood (hunted) and Yuuki as the huntress.
Yuuki in black cuz she's on the hunters' side, and Zero in white as pureblood royalty. (amazing how some patterns can make a white shirt look more formal)
So Zero's king, and yuuki's his queen.
can say that Zero even has pureblood eyes, I made them red and purple together. Purebloods have red eyes. :)
and I also swapped their weapons!
Yuuki has Bloody Rose, to hunt Zero down, and then Zero would have Artemis (I thought he'd look sissy with it, but it looks okay :p )
Pureblood lusting after the one he loves, wanting to bite her...
and the huntress with a blank face, expressionless because she cannot show her feelings for the one she must kill...
And this is the meaning for the contest~

MEANING 2: (King and Queen)
Yuuki is the black queen, and Zero her white king (in the ultimate chess game)
this is according to the meaning for sephora-chan (aka pkdesigner)
because in the chess game in the VK storyline, Yuuki is the black side, and Zero on the white side, but because they're both vampires, Yuuki is Zero's queen~
and then, also Zero is kissing Yuuki's hand, as sephora-chan wanted. and his eyes turn red due to his bloodlusting love for her :meow:
Yuuki's hand, so near his mouth, feel like biting her...
Both carry each others weapons to show the connection between them, the trust they have for each other not to kill each other. :love:
and thus, the meaning in the commission, hope you like, sephora (its okay if I called you that, right?:D)

tried to max out the romance factor by adding petals and stars and the big moon.. :iconimhappyplz: so yeah.
this is the first time I've worked so hard on a drawing, I feel so overwhelmed when I finished... wish me luck guys~ :D
