Rurouni Kenshin

Posted May 20, 2006, 8:59:22 PM

After deciding to take reference pictures of myself for trying to draw Kenshin from the Anime Rurouni Kenshin, I was able to get enough guts to draw him for the first time, after having wanted to draw him for the longest time now. >_< The hands and arms should be longer, ya :/ BUT BUT, I was afraid that if I amde them any bigger, and erased what I had already, that the kitana would be half off the page, since it was already starting to creep into it >_< And since I wanted that to be part of what kenshin was doing, instead of just, looking at you, I had to leave it as was >_, (and because I had already erased the area around his hands WAY too much, you can see just how much if you look in there hard enough lol) But anyways, I'm glad how kenshin turned out, especially with his hair..but alas, my poor prisma colored pencils get dwindled down so fast!!! ARGH! Lol, anyways, OH! If you guys want to see the refrence pictures of myself I used, you can find them by going to WWW.BamboozledByAnime.Deviantart.Com and then clicking the scraps section button on my main profile page, there should be at least 16 poses of myself holding one of my kitanas different ways lol. But if anyone would like to use them for their own reference, feel free to :D

Materials used: Prisma colored pencils,0.5mm mechanical pencil,ball point pen,cliq erase eraser

    First, I think you did well with the coloring, considering that you used colored pencils. No empty white spaces. (That's why I don't like coloring by hand anymore ><)

    Second, Your perspective could use a little work. The arms seem too short for the body.

    And finally, I think you may need to pay a little more attention to where the creases fall into place with the clothes.

    Anyway, nice work, and I hope this critique actually helps. >.>"
