Fading Memories by druihd Fading Memories by druihd
(EDIT: I am sorry this is coming up again on the dev watches. This background is slighly different than the other)

This is my all time favorite drawing! I spent a really really (did I mention) REALLY long on the background for this. And its so sweet!

hmmm, but what does it mean?

Its a result of listening to Enya while drawing.

Other notes, I originally tried drawing Kagome with her anime proportions, (ya know, with really loooong legs) but in the end, she got more realistic proportions. But I really tried to imitate the anime style.

The effects on this one were really fun too.....

I saw this... PIECE OF ART many many many years ago on your website, and I was instantly shocked by it. I saw it before I saw/read the last chapter of this wonderful story and I recall you saying that this piece meant somewhat how was it going to end... It was close! :squee:
Many years later I can finally say I LOVE YOUR ART!!! It was wonderful when I was a kiddo and now It's even better :)

Of course Fading Memories your greatest and most iconic work to date.
It says to me that InuYasha has died and Kagome is remembering him.Trying to hold on to her first
love from her past. He's living on in her heart. This work is the very first fan art I ever saw of these two.
Ever my favorite, it has inspired me to write a trilogy fan fic about them.

"Its a result of listening to Enya while drawing." lol. Yeah, Enya has that effect on Sailor Moon and Rumiko series for some reason (or is that just me?)

Beautiful art work. I think it's neat how the part holding Kagome is solid, and the rest of him is "ghosting" with the background, really adds a sense of drama to the romantic scene. ^_^

hockyfist Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2011
It makes me angry that Inuyasha just let Kikyo go when she died
hockyfist Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2011
So Sad this pic I mean I know Inuyasha had to work his fellings for Kikyo and Kagome had Problems with it and it work out in the end but I still think this pic is sad

I agree with silver-strawberries, I've been a fan of yours forever and I really miss your work. Here's to hoping that we see more of your beautiful work. :hug:

Can you make another one sometime? I'm not sure if you're still doing InuYasha fanart and I'm complete stranger. But your pieces are beautiful and to see an Inu and Kag - I mean Inu with long black hair is... WOW! Awe!

Love is an ever fading memory,no one can sustain its merories for long.This picture is just an example.
obasan45 Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2010
Don't know what you have in mind when you did the fade-out of inuyasha, but it certainly is beautiful and full of "mood".

What I love most is the tenderness in the kiss. Very much in keeping with how it always is with inuyasha and kagome, especially on the part of inuyasha. Everything about inuyasha's body language oozes tenderness, the way he hugs her, the way his body is always "wrapped" around hers, AND you have managed to capture that feel in your pic.

I am impressed! :worship:

I saw this many years ago, and was instantly in love with it. I'm so glad to finally be able to see it again.
You did a beautiful job. <3

I have loved your inuyasha art since middle school (in high school now) and i still absolutly love your art...ALL of your art! keep drawing
mitsukisama67 Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2010
i know you think that the proportions are wrong on this but i have always thought Kagome looked out of proportion with her long legs. I am an artist myself and i think you did a wonderful job on this picture.
Truchis Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2009
Oh my!! I really love some of your pics. You know I was wondering about the one where Kagome and Inuyasha are laying in the grass covered by the red kimono of Inu -I think both were naked-. I seen it years ago why don't you have it?? And well of course your drawings are always so cool...

So YOU'RE the one who drew this picture!!! *bows down* I HAIL THEE!

I've seen this picture all over the internet for YEARS, though resized so I couldn't see any detail, and I always wondered who drew it!

I'n learing photoshop in school can you tell me how you got that fading effect?
Shelaum Featured By Owner May 6, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
If you made the skirt shorter you'd get the longer legs :D It always bugged me in the anime how her skirt is so short, and defies gravity. When, if you think about it, her part would be showing O.o Or, at the very least her underwear. ^^' Sorry. Had to get that out. It's just always bugged me. I would LOVE a skirt that defied gravity! :D

Beautiful picture! I wish I could make art that was this well put together!
