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*

This is *completely* adorable and very funny; the fact that you 'Bougereau-ized' Tintin is wonderful in itself, but the symbolism (and undertones) you chose enrich the work all the more. (I love Tintin's wry, skeptical, mildly smug expression, and the serene, smiling patience of Captain Haddock.) Wonderful.

I like the rings, the symbolism you use for their partnership and devotion. I love the Pleasant Burden information you give and the look on their face shows there is no place that either one would rather be. Thank you for sharing your talent with the rest of the world!

Here's a piece of music I wrote most of as a song to the love they share.

Together happily ever after! That's the vision I get of their life how happy they are together.
Artists such as yourself, and other fans who see Tintin and Haddock in this light inspired me to write about Tintin past.

i would love to see you paint a picture of "The Highway Man" by lorenna Mckennit. i had another idea but I cant remember it sadly. i love how you paint pictures of historical things, some things I havent even heard about before. Your tintin art is fantastic.

This is absolutely stunning! You have such great skill as an artist. I love every detail, but my favorite part of this picture is how you did the faces, especially Captain Haddock's. This is probably the greatest realistic rendering of the comic that I've ever seen. Wonderful work!
