Himura Kenshin and Yukishiro Tomoe of Rurouni Kenshin

Close-up kenshin, tomoe close-up by amie689

Request prize for :iconhinata-kenshin: - more that a year overdue.. and she requested Kenshin and Tomoe during happier moments..

Kenshin and Tomoe happy moments were barely implied - For the longest time it was just looking for ideas, since I'm basically a canon / canon compliant person and have a strong aversion to direct copy..

In the end, I had 3 references for Kenshin and 3 for Tomoe, and one for scene and lighting/ shading.. and even more issues.. they all had different lighting, shading, angles and perspectives I've spent so much time just editing even before any part is complete..

Takeru Satoh was used for Kenshin and Satomi Ishihara was used for Tomoe.. from various promo and magazine shots.. and a wedding photo from Flickr for the mountians and initial idea... No screen caps,.. this scene was never written or animated- I just put every thing together.

Edit 23/06/14: I was in the middle of editing this, when it finally occurred to me to check the timeline... Ikedaya incident happened in July, and by winter, Tomoe died.. so it wouldn't have been possible for the two of them to have a spring together, so I had to change this version to autumn.

It was a plausible project, the manga being a pseudo historical story.. 

so everything was just waiting to fall into place.. the techniques, story telling, the right director.. and most importantly the right actor to play such an athletic role and yet emphatic to the deeper tones of the main character... 

Can't wait either.. 

This is almost the Japanese version of the Lord of the Rings, in terms of epic-ness...

The "Rurouni Kenshin" live action ?.. so do I.. but this scene is not it the movie, or the anime.. not from the manga too..

Surrealistic lighting or not, this is amazing, bittersweet, and so lovely. You've officially broken my emotions, but oh well, I suppose I'll survive...;)

Thank you very much..

I'm really happy you've survived and continuing with 'power'.. rereading the old one and eagerly waiting for the updates on the sequel..

I'll wait till I have more time to comment.. if I'll ever have enough time to be fairly coherent enough..  In the mean time, know that you make my heart all warm and fuzzy every time I read the stories :hug:

Oh my... Your art still just makes me breathless! I just poked onto deviantart to check my messages (as if I ever have any! LOL) and decided I needed to check and see what I've been missing on your page as well... So beautiful. I'll have to make it a habit to at least poke on here more often to get my daily dose of gorgeous:D

thank you very much dear :) sometimes I do get breathless myself thinking how did I manage to put down the feelings I felt..

Sorry haven't kept up with your posts in ff.net.. I can only deal with one fandom.. real life is too much a priority now.

Do drop a line once in awhile.. it'll be nice to catch up :D

the subtitles are okay but there is some places where its missed the mark.. nothing major that'll miss the mark.

I'm still waiting for them to officially release a subbed DVD.. I want to buy the special edition with interviews etc...
