If there's one thing I fail at, it's realism.

And yet, it's also something I want to try and master one day.

I had decided that this new year, I will be trying to draw in several styles to expand my creativity. I use to draw realism a lot in school, but stopped as soon as I had the chance because I was never really good at it.

Hopefully though, this does Kaname a bit of justice.

Dibs to whoever can guess which person I used as reference~

Done in photoshop, several hours + procrastination.
The symbol behind him is from the official art.

EDIT: Oh, and this marks my first deviation of the new year! Happy New Year of the Golden Ox!

Kaname-sama~
I really love how yo have rendered him ^-^ It's a different style then the artist, but it works for him! Well done.

In other news, how are you~?

Yeah, poor Kaname had to be my guinea pig for a style I'm experimenting on. :XD:

I'm good... :3 A little on the stressed side, but that's how life is. :D How about you?

It's nice! Plus it can only get better with time. <3

Really, very stressed. I just have to take things day by day. At lest I am doing art work again. I really missed it. Maybe it's just that time of year, huh?

Maybe it is... the beginning of the year tends to do that before it all mellows down a bit... if it ever does mellow down anyway! :XD:

I have to agree with Shij :D and I kinda like the cross between realism and manga

When my aunt was going through art school she said they started her off using an apple~ she'd have to draw it over and over and over lol Try drawing anatomy :3 you should see my aunts old sketchbooks~ two of them have nothing but sketches of horses, since she said that's what she had the hardest time drawing, kind of neat going through them though XD

Crosses are good. :XD: At least I'm kinda getting part of what I wanted/anticipated.

Yeah, that's something we were forced to do in college. Wasn't too happy about it but I got the discipline a little.

More work needs to be done. :D Thankie Azuzu~
