This seems to be the basic shape of Nightow's male characters: slim waist, long legs, long arms. The first one is "mortal" proportions, eight heads tall. The second one is "hero" height, nine heads, but if you take a look and compare the two, the extra head height is not distributed equally along the entire figure. The arms are the same length as the mortal proportions, but the legs are much much longer.
I am pretty sure sometimes Nightow draws his characters almost 10 heads tall... Every once in a while in the manga, Nightow will illustrate a kind of idealized version of Vash, like, the mythical version. One of those pictures has IMPOSSIBLY LONG LEGS. (Still looks cool, though...)
There's no doubt about it, folks. The extra height is in the legs. Even the character design for Vash on the anime is crazy disproportionate. If you look at the model sheet for the anime, you can see that out of 9 heads, 5 of them are LEG. If you compare this to the mortal proportions, it's only 4 heads tall. If you look at NORMAL hero proportions, the legs are still only 4.5 heads tall.
Vash character design probably belongs to either Yasuhiro Nightow or Madhouse Studio.
This is Kazuki from the amazing anime called Get Backers. Now I guess I have to tell everybody who isn´t familar with the show that this individual is male. OK maybe some who don´t know him would say Kazuki is one of the prettiest girls in anime world but he´s actually a guy and he´s sweet and strong and his voice is soooo pretty. Kazuki rocks
That picture is a gift for my dear DA friend hey sweetie this is for you just because I like you
A fanart of Miharu from Girls Bravo for my friend's 21st I didn't know what to give him so I decided to draw him one of his fave anime characters I did a quick sketch in 5-10min then colored it in Photoshop as quick as I could (actually took me over 4 hrs) I'm actually quite surprised witht his one since... its not something that I would usually draw when my friend saw this... He couldn't believe that I made it... 2 b honest... I don't believe it myself O___O I'm just glad that he liked it ^^ I wonder if I can make something similar to it again
Colaboration between DarkChildx2k and myself. I like how this one came out. I tried to use both the Cel-Shaded style I have been using with a little of my old soft shading style. I hope you all think I merged them ok. Just a little break from the usual by me. Give me a shout and let me know whatcha think. More to come so stay tuned
