Woooooah now. Been a long while since I uploaded one of these. But I figured, seeing how the art style is Japanese in origin, that I needed to draw at least one of my eastern characters in the style, and I have to say, I'm pretty pleased with the result.
For anyone not familiar with the series, I drew a bunch of cast characters in the style of the Okami games a while ago, trying to mimic an ink and paint feel. I still haven't really figured out how to do that with solid lines (still searching for a good "ink" brush) but the hair usually turns out great thanks to a really neat brush I found that twists and bends around on itself.
In this instance, I chose Ryuichi as my test subject because Neighpon and Shogun, but I had a lot of fun with this. I might try drawing my other eastern-themed characters in this style, because playing around with that twisty brush is just too much fun not to use it again and again and again!
