With the completion of the last Inuyasha related image I thought that I'd attempt one more before moving on to something else......

Aside from Kagome and Inuyasha, I have always enjoyed the interaction between the characters of Sango and Miroku, two important supporting characters of the series. Within the story itself, though it seems obvious that these two have very strong feelings for each other, most of the time it seems that Miroku's rather.... "bold" behavior always seems to kill the romantic mood. ^^; And yet, I think when all things are said and done, these two will most certainly end up together; becoming truly close and comfortable with one another; Miroku's bad habits and all. :D

I was inspired to paint an image that depicted this type of intimate contact.... And so, I came up wtih this concept with the two of them lying together on the grass, naping in each other's arms. I even have Miroku's hand resting on Sango's shoulder..... And as many fans know, it's "the" hand, the one with the dangerous wind tunnel or the "Kazaana" and yet, I'd like to think even so, Sango would feel comfortable enough to allow this; that she trusts him enough, even in such a deep sleep. This also goes along with the feeling of innocence that I wanted to depict in the image. Perhaps Sango and Miroku are completely unaware that they have fallen asleep in this manner, and yet because of their connection, they are able to rest soundly and securely.....

When composing the image, I thought about creating a sort of balance much like the concept of ying and yang. The figures themselves seem positioned in a similar manner, but I thought that I would add their weapons of choice to strengthen that balance on each side. I also have a great love of patterning so I wanted the blanket on the grass to be colorful, yet hopefully not so much that it takes away from the figures themselves. As always the image is painted with opague water color.

Awesome!:) I've just recently got into InuYasha, and it's really great! I'm kinda sad that all the best art of this show is over 10 years old, but this is great!:)

Aw, well I think Inuyasha is one of those titles that will have a legacy for many years to come!  I'm so happy you were able to appreciate my work even now!  Thank you!  You made my day! :D

You're welcome! Say, I'm sorry if this is sudden, but I've noticed that there's hardly any new art of Inuyasha, and I was wondering, would you be interested in drawing more? I hope that's okay:)

Aw, I'm sorry but these days with my newborn son I don't have as much time for art as I used to.  I hope that will change some day though.  I appreciate your interest!  Take care now and thanks again!

You're the one who painted this?!
I've been admiring this for a very long time!
I never had any idea that you're the artist behind this one!
WOW!!!

Aw, thanks dear! Yes, this is one of my older works and it seems it has the most favorites and views. I'm not sure how I feel about that, as I like to think I've done superior works since then, but I'm also very happy that its still received well after so many years! I appreciate it! :)

It's old?!  It doesn't look old!
WOW!!!  WEll, it's one of my favorites!

Thanks dear! :) Yep, I painted that one back in 2005.  It's still one of my most well known pieces, though at times I find that a little odd, since I like to THINK that I've painted better works since? ^^; Ah well....

LOL!!!  
That's how it goes!

I guess it's due to the rarity of it and it's very charming.

Oh, gosh, I think you'd do fabulous Lady Oscar fan art with your style.

Thanks again dear. You're too kind!

I had to look into who Lady Oscar was, but after seeing her, I realized that I had seen her design before. Maybe someday that'll be something I consider! I appreciate it! :)

The Lady Oscar anime is my favorite followed by Inuyasha.
I've seen Lady Oscar more than 10 times.
So, you can imagine.

That's really really cool that you can appreciate older titles, as I find some of my favorites are from the early 90s and such.  I feel that anime was a bit more plot driven and compelling in those days in comparison today.  <Sigh>....  Even Inuyasha was pretty developed when you compare it to some more recent titles. But that's just me....
