Kenshin by janey-jane Kenshin by janey-jane
*edit* Someone was kind enough to let me know that there was a weird vertical grey line in the bkgd that I couldn't see because of my monitor brightness. I think I got it fixed. let me know if you can still see it.

I had the sketch for this kicking around my WIP folder for months. Randomly last night I got inspired to finish it. Seriously though...what kind of assasin wears white hakama? Maybe that's how he got so good at laundry.

For :iconjb-612: because anything I ever do relating to Kenshin will be with her in mind. She was also, completely unintentionally, the model for this piece.


Kenshin definately doesn't belong to me.

It's faint, but I see that grey line.

Other than that, it's a nice piece. I like it. >^-^<

It's such a great representation of his detachment and isolation. I love the fact that he's leaving the drawing...

Would this be Kenshin from 1/2 Prince? Because it looks almost exactly like him. <3 Wonderful wonderful picture!

It's actually Kenshin from Ruroni Kenshin, but I won't tell if you want it to be Kenshin from 1/2 prince ;)

I love how you got so much into so little (does that make sense?). You were able to show me his sorrow and strength, without having to show me his face. Great job!

Keep up the nice drawing!

thank you so much! The whole idea of the piece was to tell a story with very little context, so I'm very pleased you feel like I succeeded!
