The shading sucks. I'm going fix it anyway, since I'll be doing a colour version soon.







Deviation title taken from the Cure's wonderful "Close to Me." Check it out!

Very, very good. It looks almost exactly like the original. I like to see it in soft pencil. I think it's great that your gallery is almost completely Kenshin. The reason this has so many favorites is because people love Kenshin and Kaoru so much. This is pretty much the only romantic part of the series, so everyone holds on to it.

good job! I read that part in the manga. How long did it take you to draw that?

?Donde esta el biblioteca? I don't know lots of Spanish, but I'm learning!!

It was so beautiful. Kenshin just suddenly suddenly wrapped Kaoru in his arms, she looked so surprised; I love that part because it was so uncharacteristic of him, usually he doesn't show Kaoru how he feels. I read somewhere that Himura Kenshin can be divided into 2: the passionate side is Battousai, and the calm, almost unfeeling side is Kenshin, the washing clothes, cooking dinner side. Himura (i.e. Battousai=Kenshin) can never be be Kenshin and emotional at the same time. Nor can he be Battousai and yet be calm at the same time. So anyway, yeah I love that part and I spend waaaaaaaaaay too much time at the computer.

You don't! You're just a fan of everything Kenshin! Ah...it sounds like such an emotional rollercoaster...first I'll be laughing, then sniffling at the cute parts, then crying my eyes out at the end.

That's Rurouni Kenshin for you! The best anime ever! Arigatou, Watsuki sensei! :worship: I'll be putting up some RK stuff soon, probably a reenactment (i.e. copy) of Ama Kakeru Ryu no Hirameki v. Enishi from the final manga. Can't wait to start, yay!

Hmmm ... It looks fine to me. But it has bean my
experience that pictures on DA look different on different computers. Pictures look darker or lighter, that sort of thing. My computer makes things look lighter. maybe that's why I can't tell that it's patchy.

That, and the fact that I'm a hyper-critical git. But I think that if you look at the bit Kenshin's hair that is closest to the top of the page, you can see that the shading's kinda uneven.

It's ok, I guess. I find that of all my stuff, the ones that I don't think are too hot are more accepted while the ones are like are generally ignored. Hey-ho.

This is nothing. If you want to see awesome shading, check out and , amongst others. One of 's drawings in in my Fav section, it's titled "9". It's a beautiful picture of Kenshin with some Hiragana (Japanese letters) down the side, which oc course give it an A+ in my book, heh.
