Today we’ve come to the last day and last kiss of the Valentine’s Day Kiss Countdown!
There have been an assortment of different couples that have made an appearance in the countdown, but for Kiss #1 I thought I would feature a couple that you will all probably recognize.
What better couple could represent the last kiss in the countdown than Christian and Ana from the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy! What moment they shared fits Valentine’s Day better, than their wedding day! Since the decision seemed pretty clear cut, it was easy for me to make them the featured couple for Kiss #1!
Their wedding was presented in Fifty Shades Freed as a sort of dreamy flashback sequence as Ana lounged on the beach during her honeymoon. A quite appropriate method, seeing that Ana and Christian’s relationship progressed very quickly, and it probably felt very dreamlike to the both of them. They had experienced so much, and so many things in their lives had changed in the short time since Ana fell into Christian’s office that one rainy afternoon…
I hope you enjoyed the countdown!
Happy Valentine’s Day! ♡
Only two more kisses left in the Valentine’s Day Kiss Countdown! Here we go with Kiss #2!
This gives a whole new meaning to taking someone over your knee! Things start off innocently enough with a kiss, but as soon as things begin to heat up, it leads to a tangle of bodies and arms and legs!
Time for Kiss #3 in the Valentine’s Day Kiss Countdown!
Who said men can’t multi-task? Seems as though in this case, he has things *ahem* well in hand…
Today we have Kiss #4 in the Valentine’s Day Kiss Countdown!
There’s nothing worse than having to get up in the morning. But a wake up kiss makes it a lot less painful! Much better than an alarm, but you may run the risk of having trouble getting out of bed on time!
I thought I would start off the last half of the Valentine’s Day Kiss Countdown with a real eye-opener! So, I present to you Kiss #5!
Most everyone loves a nice surprise, and I’m sure he will thoroughly be enjoying his unexpected smooch! But something tells me that this kiss is only the beginning…and that she probably has many more surprises in store for him as well…
In today’s installment of the Valentine’s Day Kiss Countdown…we have Kiss #6!
Ah, the chin tilt before he goes in for the big kiss…and how he keeps his hand lightly in place throughout the duration of said kiss…
Like the forehead kiss at #7 in the countdown, the chin tilt guided by a gentle hand may seem simple enough, but provides so much impact! To delicately hold her face at just the right angle for a smooch, you know he means business!
Continuing with the Valentine’s Day Kiss Countdown…next up is Kiss #7!
Sometimes a sweet, gentle kiss to the forehead can have just as much impact as a long, passionate kiss. It can also convey a countless number of meanings and intentions, depending on the circumstances involved. But in the case of today’s kiss, it’s quite an uncomplicated matter and simply a shared moment of affection.
While today’s Kiss #8 in the Valentine’s Day Kiss Countdown may not be of the typical lip lock variety…it’s still a very effective kiss nonetheless! I must admit that I count myself a big fan! Whether employed to get the recipient’s undivided attention, or simply occurring during a series of exploratory kisses, it’s a good bet that some traditional lip to lip action will eventually result as well!
Today we have Kiss #9 in the Valentine’s Day Kiss Countdown!
Sometimes you have to take matters into your own hands and make the first move. Seems as though in today’s kiss, that’s exactly what she set out to do…and appears to have made her intentions quite clear! Meanwhile, he seems quite content to relinquish all control and just enjoy the ride…
Since Valentine’s Day is coming up soon, I thought I would try a little something special to celebrate!
Believe it or not, one of the more difficult things to sketch or illustrate realistically are a couple in the midst of a kiss. (At least it’s difficult for me to accomplish!) While I was thinking about this one recent day, it gave me an idea for a personal challenge, which would help me get some practice on this task. But it would also be a nice way to acknowledge the approach of Valentine’s Day!
So, for the next ten days I’ll attempt to do a sort of countdown of kisses! Each day I’ll post a sketch or possibly (if time permits) skillo, of couples engaged in different types of smooches. On the last day, I’ll post a full-color illo of a very familiar couple *wink wink* exchanging the final kiss of the countdown on Valentine’s Day!
To begin, we have Kiss #10! Looks as though these two are already well on their way to some fun and rather hasty disrobing, but found a moment to pause for a passionate kiss!
I really hope you enjoy this first sketch and the rest of the countdown!
