This is magnifique. And thanks for the comments on my fanfiction stories. It keeps me going.

Heavens, where has my brain been? This is for me and I don't even leave a comment on here saying just how wonderful this is!

Very smexy, and an amazing "first bod'" <3. There is much jealously, since this girl can barely draw a stick figure.

Thank you so much for the inspiring drawing. In return, you will eventually get what I hope will be a fic worthy of your Celtic Kenshin, and the promise that DW5 is in the works (that's my priority for you since you have been giving encouraging pokes ;).)

[psst...I still have your fic to read over. Time is seriously getting away from me, but I hope to read it this weekend.]

well, you'll just have to link to both of them when you post the celtic story >=p

awww thank you! there was much aggravation over the proportions, but i'm proud of him.

it is easier for me to draw something real quick than it is for me to write something (it takes forever, those twenty-some pages i sent you was the sum total of months of intermittent writer's block and it still isn't near finished), i'm jealous of you=p

no hurries about reading, just keep an open mind...

Oh believe me, writing doesn't come easily for me either. The drabble stuff is easy because they're short. DW and Allerleiruah take much more time, and I do suffer from bouts of writer's block. More often than not, tho, I get inspired, but I'm not in a place where I can write even just basic notes on the idea, and then they get lost again (or the little minions kill the brain cells that created the plot point ;)).

call your cell phone and relate your idea to your voicemail. those things have to be good for something, may as well be an idea repository.

i'm so glad i could help =P-- thank you, that was my first attempt and i had to use the above model and spent forever trying to get the proportions right. i jus' draws what i see, i'm not all that creative.

you on the other hand, have an amazing imagination. there are many different gifts and talents and you are quite gifted and talented-- i love your humor.

if you're still stressed i could always find all the naked inuyasha pics from my favs and send them to you.

FIRST ATTEMPT?!.....:iconheaddeskplz: that settles it, you're just plain awesome XD :heart: and I just draw what I see too, when I try "realism". thanks again for the compliments though; I dunno how to repay you with all the support and kind words you offer...you're a very kind person :D (I hope that doesn't sound as lame as it seems to do...lol).

...*earsperk* naked Inu? I'd fancy meh some naked Inu! 8D :heart:

i'm not finished combing the archives for 'iy' or 'rk' so there are probably many more. here's a few with an odd one that i threw in just for variety.

enjoy the pretties =)

someone's been stalking kenshin-- i won't say who... *looks innocent*

what did you use for the sketch? Kind of makes me think of charchol.

Kenshin looks gorgeous!! *eyes the little redhead*
kokoronagomu's avatar
thank you! XD

i used pencil, but i had to 'sharpen' the scanned image because all of the shading faded out. it made it more grainy than it is in rl. then again, the sketch paper is kind of rough too.
InuHanyou's avatar
Okay... that would explain it! *giggles*

What software you use for the scan? Elements? I use about three to four different software programs before I post the final one being Elements 6 for the darkening/sharping/clarifying of my lines.
kokoronagomu's avatar
there is scanner software? i just scanned it with my hp scanner and tried to mess with the settings until most of the detail was there. when i color/finish it i'll tweak it again, and try not to mess it up. i gotta get some better graphics/art software, but i make do. *shrugs*

thanks-- i will look into Elements and see if i can find a free/cheap equivalent.
InuHanyou's avatar
Yes there is, I use a Canon i350 scanner myself. Scan using grayscale at 600dpi. From there I open PaintShop Pro 8 and crop. Next it's Elements 2 for resizing to something of 1000pixels then to Elements 6 for enhancing the sketch and make it RGB (so I can colour the piccie) I rarely use colours in my sketches now as the stupid scanner makes everything have this seriously annoying rainbow/halo effect.

Here compare the sketches: [link]
[link] to my using the grayscale: [link]

There is Open Canvas which :inuyashaloverr: uses and it's wickedly wonderful! I got the Elements software with my Wacom tablets.
