Kenshin VS Soujirou
Seta Soujirou - Kamiki Ryunosuke
Soujirou's Breakdown



Work in progress hoshisamavalmor.deviantart.com…


I really liked Rurouni Kenshin's live action movie. Can't wait for the other parts, and please, someone find some place to put Battousai VS Saito! I can only hope they'll make it before showing Shishio, maybe they'll work some way out, but they have so much to cover.

This felt like one of those works that join my personal list of 'masterpieces' ones due to the extent of work it demanded of me. I feel a little disappointed now, but I think it's mostly due to tiredness out of working so many consecutive days and hours in this. Deep down I'm still damm happy about this.

And as much as I love them, I can't stand drawing kimonos. This is torture. And note to future self, don't leave the damn harder parts to the end, stupid.

And Takeru Sato has the most unreal lips. They're so freaking perfect, he looks like a doll. He's quite beautiful and Kenshin's hair suits him perfectly.

Time taken: 11 days, though actually it's a total of 9 days worth work. More than 10 hours but less than 20 hours I think? I'ven o idea I just can't keep track of those
Materials: A3 paper, mechanical pencil+pencil-eraser for sketch, 1 black and 1 red ballpoint pen.
Music list: I listened to pretty much everything while drawing, but I blame my dearest for having finished this to It Has to Be This Way from Metal Gear Solid Rising Reveangence's OST www.youtube.com/watch?v=6IjnoM… . Rather a good song.

Thank you very much :) He was a great challenge to draw but a very pleasant one. Kimonos are so difficult to shade, this was the first time I did so I'm very glad you liked it :) Thank you for the favorite too

:) it was a smooth and interesting work, I'll admit that.
I actually don't know any other work by Takeru Sato, just the movie, and it's been a long while since I've watched any japanese dramas so I'm not really into any other work of his
