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!
