[Commission: Kaneki Ken] - 'Light of Crepuscule' by muddymelly [Commission: Kaneki Ken] - 'Light of Crepuscule' by muddymelly
Edited artwork on February 19, 2017: I felt I did a poor job on drawing Kaneki's face (I didn't make him look enough like himself,) so I redid his face, punched up certain color vibrances, fixed some anatomy mistakes, and added some colored highlights! The old picture is here for comparison: 

Light of Crepuscule (old version!) by muddymelly 

Quick plug: dear y'all, I would def' love to follow you back and connect with you on TumblrFacebookTwitter, and Instagram; I cherish seeing what y'all create and are passionate about, and cheering you on! kaomoji set 2 18/67 

EDIT @ 4:20 pm: I've just started a Patreon (a few minutes ago,) where I'm giving out the final high-res Photoshop file of this Kaneki artwork (2400 x 1600 + dozens of layers!) I would dearly appreciate hearing what free/paid rewards you'd like to receive from my Patreon! (Current suggestions include speedpaints, which would be free, of course!) Please feel free to comment your thoughts, requests, and suggestions all over my Patreon page, or here, or wherever you feel most comfy doing so!

:Takes deep breath~: Dear you, thank you so much for kindly looking! m(_ _)m T'is the renowned Kaneki Ken from Tokyo Ghoul (who  might hold the world record for going through the coolest and most character redesigns...!) :Stares in awe at each evolution of Kaneki: @^@

This artwork was commissioned by a wonderfully talented voice actor (!!) friend who is as sweet as he is dedicated! Thank you so much, Tyler James Thompson, for allowing me to work on this piece for you - and for using the piece in your gorgeous cover of "Unravel!!" 
Bunny Emoji-40 (Gangnam) [V3] 

And the title for this piece was generously suggested* by the warm-as-sunshine sunshine-hideyoshi-nagachika (AKA Luna!) Love The Sunshine Oh, my gosh, Luna... your inspiration behind "Crépuscule" is absolutely so touching and fitting...! I def' feel like Kaneki would appreciatively read Victor Hugo. (Luna, I changed your suggestion a bit because - I bet you already knew this, dear Luna and dear reader! - I found out that an interesting-sounding Korean manhwa about vampires titled "Crepuscule" exists! - And, sadly/surprisingly, DeviantART doesn't allow "é" in titles. /___\ C'mon, DA - I know you can be classy like Luna.)

As Luna beautifully translated, "God wants us to have loved;" may you feel and know you are loved today. Panda Emoji-10 (Blush) [V1]

Surprisingly bright for a Kaneki image. I think it's safe to say that because of Kankei we have picked up a habit of cracking our fingers. Actually I just read this post techanimate.com/habits-you-pic… where it mentioned Kaneki's finger snap. We've all been doing it before but I guess seeing him made it more of a habit. Any ways, keep up the great work!

Beautiful work and truly wonderfully put together, especially the color palette you chose is heartwarming to me in a weird way.

Much love ^^

I'll take very careful care of your heart, and make sure it keeps on a-pumping, and gets all the iron and exercise that it needs...! 

Every time everyone is waiting for the next chapter/release, there's such a flurry of fandom-community-camaraderie on Tumblr/Twitter while everyone communally sits on pins and needles! Cliffhangers... those'll get one's heart beating faster!

Stay awesome and good luck with patreon!  :heart:

I got so excited when I saw that you popped up on Instagram and was like, "YO, I know that awesome artist and cannot wait for her incredibly versatile, diversity-celebrating, and beautifully vivid artwork to pop onto Insta" (I'm still checking your Instagram now and then to see if I missed your first upload!) :D 

Am I following you back on Twitter?! I better be! What's your Twitter username, just in case? 8< 

I definitely was a lost child on expansive, incredible Tumblr for the longest time (I lurked forever, watching cool Tumblr peeps do their thing!) Even now, I'm still learning so much about the intricacies of the platform and cultures/demographics on it and am just amazed... Dear, I hope this (which I just happened upon today!) may be of use to you!! - loquaciousquark.tumblr.com/pos… <3 

Thank you so much for always shining your light upon me! Yes, I'll strive to start a helpful Patreon, my dear Destiny! :'>
