Ethereal - Hiei n Youko by Arigatoumina Ethereal - Hiei n Youko by Arigatoumina
Hiei and Youko Kurama from Yu Yu Hakusho, done for my YYH fanfic, Blood Lust. This is an old picture that I finally got around to coloring. The coloring style is a little different from my usual, no outlines, but I thought it fit the pastel theme of the shades. This was a portrayal of the way Kurama looked to Hiei at the end of Part 8 in the fic, but I never figured out how to do the blood and burns. I decided to go ahead and color it as is. It's more romantic this way, anyhow. Shounen ai or yaoi.

The fic:

The coloring in this is GORGEOUS! Hiei looks amazing. I think Kurama's head might be too small but maybe Hiei's hair is throwing me off. That hair... (both of them) is so good.

I noticed Kurama's head once I scanned the original, which is another reason I never colored it. ^_^; Proportions kill me. But I really liked the way I'd sketched in the curves in Kurama's hair, and the scene itself. Plus, I've been watching Sukisyo way too much lately and wanted to color something in that soft pastel way they do the 'night' scenes. That's where the colors come from in this. They don't use outlines in the dark scenes in that anime, either, so I left them out of this. I really like the overall look of it. Kurama's hair took the longest, but I was pleasantly surprised by how it turned out. This is probably the first time I've had the sketched curves in hair come out after the pic is colored. So, yeah, the proportions not withstanding, I'm glad I'm really glad you liked it. I think the pastel look is so pretty I loved using it on Youko (and Hiei by default). ^ ^
