tadaima.. by amie689 tadaima.. by amie689
this picture gave me such a headache..when my computer crashed, ..I just about cried. I had completed most except for Kaoru's kimono and obi. I had also planned to relook at the lighting and shading, and the expression..

after much twiddling with my tablet PC function to reduce the interference with the wacom, it still took me one whole night just to paint the kimono. The degree of stutter is ...urgh!!! I spent as much time correcting smudges as I did painting, I dare not touch on the finer points on the face..

I'm not sure how long it'll take me to get things up and running as usual, but with all the other real life issues, I wouldn't hold my breath.

Very sweet picture. They look like real people, but still recognizable as who they are.

Yup they are such resource hogs and never come with a good auto-save feature either :(!

Okay... I have seriously just stared and taken in the absolute beauty of this piece for ages now. It is incredible.

The hair is INCREDIBLE in this piece, as is the scenery. And that is a difficult angle to be trying to draw for kenshin, but it looks so natural and beautiful. And to pull the "anime-ness" out of it without losing any of the characters...
wow....

Thank you very much for those words, I really appreciated them..I must admit that I love the this scene too, and as for the lack of "anime-ness" I'm a bit embarrassed to admit that Kenshin's character is rather real for me, hence..

That's how I am about Hiko and Kenshin, so I understand completely:)
