The first time Nino fell in love was with this sassy lady.
Neri wanted to know how Ellie (Ilda’s big sis) looked, and I’ve been wanting to draw her for some time now, so I did. In this pic she’s 22 and it’s when Nino first met her (he was 16). They were together a few months and she was the first person to ever care about him. Nino learnt kindness and sassyness from her. Sadly, after those few months Ellie’s parents arranged a marriage and they got separated. Nino watched the ceremony from afar and legit cried, poor baby. Ellie was opposed to the marriage but she ended loving the man she married and now is a happy woman, mother of two kids :)
And this is how Nino looked/was before he met Ellie:
Thanks for softening him, Ellie ;u;
AND I DIDN’T SEE THIS EITHER WTF
Nino, Nino, love, let me hug you forever, yes? *hugs*
