Fardeau agreable by KristinaGehrmann Fardeau agreable by KristinaGehrmann
(or: "The Bear and the Twink")

I REGRET NOTHING.

The French title "Fardeau agréable" is stolen from Bouguereau and means "pleasant burden". Even if Tintin and his adventures sometimes are a burden to Captain Haddock - all he wants is quiet and peace at home at Marlinspike Hall! - it is a pleasant burden he would never give up, no matter how much danger and hardship they have to endure together. That's why this is the most epic (b)romance ever :)

Medium: Wacom tablet and Photoshop
Time taken: Somewhere between 20 and 30 hours, spread over a week (Social life? What's that? XD)
Close-ups at 100% original size: [link]

Tintin and Haddock belong to Moulinsart/Hergé.

Great piece, but really, who needs slash art when there's so much blatant bromance in the original comic?

Gah! I still adore this one. It's an all time favourite of mine when it comes to Tintin/Haddock fan art. You captured them so perfectly *sigh*
