Rurouni Kenshin- Halfway Home by GuiltyOne Rurouni Kenshin- Halfway Home by GuiltyOne
Finally it's done!
I was working on this for quite some time now, guess it was about 10 days. Every day I chose to colorate a bit and then quit for I wanted to maintain a constante quality in my work. Most of the time when working on a larger piece I tend to rush for I wanna see it finished. This time I restrained myself.. and this is the result.

I like it very very much! This is not an ACEO, but an A5 artrade with Masayoshi220
Done with traditionals, and scan as crappy as always- the colors with the original are way more vivid!
Large file for download!


Oro? DD? Whoa, I never ever expected THIS!

Daily Deviation

:iconomegata:
I like very much that work, especially because you took your time doing it (what is also hard for my impatient soul lol) but this one is very interesting : I like how you detailed the folds of the kimono and its shades, I also appreciate the fact that you even drawn the circles of the wood's door and embrasure. The pale colors are well chosen and contrast totally with the warm colors of the character, which make him and his umbrella stand out of the drawing to appear alive. The angle you chose is captivating because it supports Kenshin's confident posture, as if he was just passing by to see if everything was alright, and his look gives you the impression that you're part of the scene. The raindrops are long and defined like could be the clean traces of a katana on a surface, that's why it seems real, and at the same time rough. So to conclude, if I had just one remark to say, it would be about Kenshin's hair, which I personnaly think may need just a little bit more details. Except that, I think your work is amazing and very classy. Congrat' =)
What do you think?

Haha, thank you for your nice words!
After watching the live action movie of Kenshin it's what happened to me as well!
Kenshin was my childhood hero and I noticed that I never drew him- just found some ballpen doodles in an old sketchbook. So I started an arttrade with a good friend who saw the movie with me, and the result is the picture above.
I am glad I could do him justice- finally. Kenshin is so great!

I remember watching Rurouni Kenshin on Toonami when it still came on during the weekdays on Cartoon Network along with the other Legendary Anime shows like Outlaw Star, Tenchi Muyo Ryo-Ohki!, Blue Submarine No. 6, Robotech: The Macross Saga, Ronin Warriors, ReBoot, Dragonball Z, New Mobile Report Gundam WING, Mobile Fighter G Gundam, Gundam 0083 Stardust Memory, Trigun,

There were so many good anime series back then!
Kenshin was one of my favorite, and although he was my childhood hero I never drew him back then. Just found some ballpen doodles in an old sketchbook.
Please, if you can manage, watch the live action movie of kenshin! It is very, very good and inspired me to draw one of the most famous manga-samurai figures of my childhood ^^

Yeah they sure are, and the funny thing is that I was only in first grade when I started watching anime, and I saw all 26 episodes of Outlaw Star(Inculding Episode 23 Hot Spring Planet Tenrai(I know that I spelled the planet's name wrong) which was edited out due to Cartoon Network's gidelines.), Tenchi Muyo Ryo-Ohki, Trigun and the four Episodes of Blue Submarine No.6. And I just wished tha WAIT!O.o There was a live action Kenshin movie.

Whew, I love how you did the highlights of the rain--very eye catching! RuroKen was my first manga, so it holds a special place in my heart (still hopelessly waiting for that live action movie to release dvds into North America...X'D).

(And ahahahaha, I like how you went "Oro" in surprise to your DD--very nice touch! ;D)

I must admit I feared ruining the piece with the rain... but it turned out pretty good (if you wanna see WIPs of this aka the version without rain, visit my tumblr ^.~).
Kenshin was not my first manga, but one of my favos. He was my childhood hero!
And please, if you can get your fingers on the live action movie, do it!!!

Hahaha, oro indeed! xD

Not a problem! Keep up the nice work! c:
And ah, yes--rain can be tricky to pull off, but it was done well here, I agree! I especially like how it bounces off the umbrella and pools in some places too.
Ah, that's wonderful! I can see how he can be a hero to you--he has a powerfully optimistic personality in what he does.

Yes--I'm waiting (hopelessly) for the dvd to come here, though I'm tempted to just buy an Australian copy for the English sub. Not sure yet, since I fear I'll buy an "authentic bootleg" version by mistake. Japan, I want to spend my money! Send it over already! XD

Yep yep! XD
