"Anything interesting happen today, Keiss?" Layle casually observed the people passing by at the crowdet street market. He couldn't really say he was interested, but he was bored out of his mind and running out of things to do. "It's been two weeks since our last job, you know..."
"Oh hush, I'm working on it," Keiss muttered as he scanned that morning's newspaper, "Oooo~ listen to this!"
"What is it this time? Another 'report' on the Spinosa scandal?" Layle sighed, he was tired of hearing about that, tired of being reminded of Phelia and Clockwork. Or just plain tired, he wasnt' sure these days.
"Nope," Keiss turned to his partner and winked.
"Then what?" Layle was starting to get irritated at the Selkie's nonchalant chatter, "Spill it already."
"The 'Queen Alexis II' is having her maiden voyage in two days," Keiss grinned, "and you'll never guess who's going to be on board."
"Your father?" Layle shot back.
"PFFFTT he'd sink the ship," Keiss laughed.
"Stop dancing around it and just spill it."
"Fine, you're no fun when you get like this, you know that?" the Selkie folded up his newspaper and stretched.
"Keiss."
"Okay, okay, it's none other than High Commander Jegran!" Keiss' eyes sparkled, "So naturally-"
"-we're going to be on it," Layle finished.
"Exactly," Keiss stood, "Come on, time to get Cid to put in a good word for us about our escort skills."
"You're crazy, you know that?" Layle sighed, "After all that happened with Clockwork, we'll be lucky if they even let us look at the ship."
"Awww, come on - it's easy work and it'll get me that much closer to my goal," Keiss grinned.
Layle sighed again, at least they finally found something to occupy their time, he was sick of being bored. "Escort duty, huh?" Layle shrugged, "Well, how hard can it be?"

I just felt like teasing Jade with that little story hehehe. It's already way past my bedtime so why not? another 10 minutes won't make a difference at this point. This is one of those rare paintings that turns out EXACTLY like I see it in my head. 8'D

Did this up in a few hours, so I suppose it's a speedpaint?
Done in Paint Tool Sai.
Time: appx. 4-5 hours

Layle, Keiss, and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers are Square-Enix.

Ok, so you want critique? Sure I guess but I won't put it up there because I am certainly in no position to write a proper critique ughdaugh.

The overall composition of this image is good and your lighting is also well done. Unfortunately, I find myself more attracted to the empty spaces (clouds) in the background rather than Layle and co which I suppose is the image's intended focal point. On top of that, the boys are rather awkwardly cut off at around the waist. Perhaps you could show more of that to prevent eyes from drifting way from the main catch of the picture.

On the other hand, I find the additional folk in the background a little too under detailed and they look more like props and therefore not alive. If you do desire to leave the dude left of layle on the foreground, I suggest you pay more attention to his details as well or he'd look awkwardly out of place. If not, he should be moved to the mid ground.

The rest of the picture is fine. I'd suggest adding more people or decoration to balance out the picture as it does look rather empty. Keep up the good work

LOL the dude to the left IS is the mid ground OTL :iconrazycryplz:

I left the background people less detailed on purpose, hoping that people would be more drawn to the main characters instead of the background people, but I guess it backfired LOL

Originally, there were more people to the right, but they looked awkward, like they were crammed in between the back of the park bench and the wall, so I left that space empty

Gah, empty painting is empty OTL

anyways, thanks for the input Roii! :iconlazywaveplz:

I guess. For the guy in the "mid ground" draw him smaller and show more of his body. Tweak the saturation in him and you should be fine although there should be slightly more detail on him as well

"How hard can it be?" are words that should never, ever be spoken.

I'm assuming the "your father" was a jab at Vaigali?
