It's Good to Be King by emilywarrenart It's Good to Be King by emilywarrenart
Yeahhhh it's a little gay. BUT ITS MEN! YESSSS

Not really much to say- another beautiful color job by my babby :iconceeceeluvins:. We'll be selling this new at SDCC this year, not sure how well it will actually do, but it was a piece we both wanted to finish :D

As far as the guys go, the one in the back is Rhys and the one in front is Axis. I'm kinda curious to see which one everyone thinks is the top.

Lines by me
Colors by ol' what's her face :iconceeceeluvins:

:iconohohohoplz: ohho i wonder who the top is
AeryonSun Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
This is one of my favorite art pieces and I don't just mean from Teahouse. I mean out of all the art that moves me or inspires me or excites me this is very near the top.

I adore Axis' facial expression and the play of light and dark is just stunning. The body language is genius, it says so much about these two without anyone being naked, pinned down, draped or kissed. There is so much sensuality in this. So much STORY that I just can't get enough of.

This is beautiful, absolutely.

sexy men :P

I stumbled across "Teahouse" a few hours ago, and was like... "I know those guys~!" D8

I actually bought this print back in '09 when you guys had a table at AWA... I had no idea they were part of a comic. I just thought the art was gorgeously done, and still do. The print's still up on my wall. XD

Evhanter Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2011
I love this one, it's so beautiful, I want to see more of these, lovely
LittleMissM3 Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2011
This is great. I love Teahouse and the "relationship" between Axis and Rhys. BTW Rhys is a great top ;P
AeryonSun Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I can't agree more with LittleMissM3!!!

1, axis looks asian o-o (not a bad thing T_T just saying) 2 this is fricking amazing, 3 the t-shirt xD!
Moonriddler Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2011
this is among the more hot HOT pics I know. the absolute POSSESSION by Rhys there, and the expression on Axis' face that tells me he sort of accepts it but only if he gets to fight Rhys for it. omg. (my interpretation, of course ^^)

then there's the colouring and shading and WHAM! I'm stunned stupid of how aweseome it all is. no wonder I'm such a fan.
Skandron Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2011
These guys are so sexy. :squee:

Cute. The guy in the back has nice feet :)

I have a feeling Rhys is the only one that could make Axis beg ~ If you know what I mean
LoZfanchick Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2011
clever title, very clever all these hints (including the one in the pic) are awesomely planned. Went right over my friends and my head till now :)

i think Rhys is the top but lets Axis top on occasion

The lighting is amazing. The shirt on the floor is priceless.

I love Rhys in this picture,he looks like a bitch,but in a good way.
SlashingDasani Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
A -little- gay? This is so totally blatantly gay that it's -awesome-. It's so gorgeous. I love the coloring and their postures and the light spilling onto Rhys and their toes and fingers.

As for their relationship roles, it took me a moment, but I'm pretty sure Rhys is the top here. That lazy slit-eyed confidence is impossible to miss, and the way he sprawls kind of says, "I'm letting you sit up now, Axis, but just as easily, I could yank you back down." Conversely, Axis is kind of curled up a bit, one knee drawn to his chest (his toes even curled), which is, well, pretty universal body language for submitting. But the way his right hand grips Rhys' thigh (not to mention all the jewelry he's decked out in) makes it clear that he's not going to give up control easily. It's hot.

Also, have I mentioned I love Rhys' feet? They're just inviting themselves to be sucked XD
DevilTeivel Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2010
I love the shirt on the floor XD
independentYOUTH11 Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2010
judging by the way rhys behaves in the webseries, i'd say he's probably on top. whether axis likes it or not :D
suicidebyinsecticide Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The shirt on the floor is an epic win, too bad it doesn't show the entire length. ;) I'm so punny. Beautiful colouring.
Havenot95 Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2010  Student Writer
Rhys is definatly top XD
DeadDancers Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Hmm, well Rhys looks more smug and piercings can be a sign of lesser self-esteem so I'm going to vote Rhys. :D

Love the lighting and how perfectly Axis is positioned to sit up, but... where/what are they looking at?
Foxbride Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2010  Professional General Artist

I want one of those t-shirts!

...Oh, wait. I'm not a guy... Oh, it could still work, right? XD
citizenxt99 Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2010
Awesome work. Not to mention very HOT characters. I say Axis is the top then again I could be wrong. I love the shirt on the floor and how everything is just thrown all around.

Oh. My. GODDDD How come I didn't know this was selling that year?! Auuugh ;A; I would have gotten thisssss.

I just recently stumbled upon your gallery and learned about your comic from there and I have to say your work is stunning. This particular image and the lineart you uploaded for it have really gotten my attention, and I find myself staring at them both for long periods of time because the details of the lineart and the amazing coloring job are so well done I want to study every inch of it. I cant find a single thing about this picture I don't like, you and the colorist's talent are major. I really aspire to one day have this ability. No wonder it got a DD.
