Nehinah has a thing for beautiful eyes.

I'm going to color this, but I feel the inked version can stand on it's own.

Nini!? Oh my god...Nehinah would torture and kill you and do unmentional things to your corpse if he heard you call him that! XD

It's great.

I love his lips and eyes, he's got a kinda cruel looking expression, and I like it! The details are superb, I think it'll probably still look better as a line art rather than coloured, so I'm glad you uploaded it like this^^

Yeah, I actually really like it like this. Color would probably detract from it, huh?

Hey very nice job, I like the radial design. I know you mentioned that you would color this, but with this version, I think he would stand out a bit more with a thick outline or something. He's already very striking, but it seems to lack something that would separate him from the background.

And I want those boots! 0_0

Okay, the detail in this is just mind-boggling o__o I can't imagine the patience you must have, man... How LONG did it take you?! I saw the pencil version and the half-inked version, and those on their own were pretty impressive.

...

He's so pretty ;o; I can never pull off the defined lips thing when I draw guys, even when I want to D: You make it look EASY.

Wooooow O: That's a LOT of time. I wish I could say I worked so hard on any of my art. 8D;; It looks like it's totally worth it so far.

I dunno...it definantly took me around eight or twelve hours...but that was when I was multitasking and getting distracted, so I'm leaning closer to eight.

Definitely very Giger/CLAMPish. I can definitely tell where they got the inspiration for all those "sealed Ashura" scenes in RG Veda...

I know! I find it cool that Clamp had so many varied influences...I mean Giger and Alphonse Mucha, and I could probably find some more....

Yeah. It kind of takes the mickey out of all those silly people who insist that anime isn't art and can't possibly have artistic merit of its own. :roll:
