Look at Sai's flowy hair

"L'Oreal - because he's worth it."

This is Saionji - looking very young an sweet compared to the harsh reality. His skin is supposed to be dark but it does not look like it is in this picture. This work is about 1 - 1½ year old at the moment.

I practiced drawing muscles of the torso when I was doing this. I was really proud when I finished it. It felt like I had improved a lot. What I like most in this picture is the expression. I don't know why since the face and head area aren't that great.

    Dear me, very nice. Very nice indeed. Who is this guy? He's yours?

    Anyway, yes good work! I love the way you drew this all soft and ephemeral...like he's dissapearing in the mist. I'm envious of his hair...what does he use...L'oréal huh! Joking aside, I like his face but I think the eyes are too stiff, they lack something...a light?

      Let me instroduce you to Saionji av Nifflheim! ;D

      He is an original character and is a nornin. The nornir are a race which I have created for my stories.

      Manase is his cousin's greatgreatgrandmother by the way. No, it's not a typo.

      I colored his eyes over the pencilwork in photoshop very sloppily, I think a bit of light and effort would have made them more alive. But I'm lazy! Can't help it... Smile

        Well Saionji, the pleasure is all mine...believe you me....stand like that on my bed all you want. ;)

        I like the way you put depth to you drawing by talking about them like that. Smile

        Yeah I'm kinda like you on that, once I decide I'm done with a drawing I wont be touching it again. Except if people kick me arse...so maybe it'll work with you....So, fix his eyes now young lady! ;)
