Ryou - Weather to Match by ellana Ryou - Weather to Match by ellana
I wanted to do something with the background on this. In short - I'm not really happy with the background. He's supposed to be on the cafe roof looking down. I gave up on the roof since I lacked a good texture for it. And the snow could have been better, but I got tired of dealing with it.

This is actually Kokoro Ryou, though it could probably go either way if you ignored what the jewelry means. I wanted to try a different kind of pose, too, but I got a little lazy, I think. In the roleplay, I made Ryou like winter and snow. I think the winter sort of suits his personality. When you think of snow - it can be calm or fierce, it's cold yet beautiful. It can bite at people or make them happy. It can accumulate and stick around for a long time, or it can disappear without a trace. I'm getting philosophical. But I relate Ryou to snow in my weird mind. X-x;

Um, Ryou is the only thing done with markers in this picture. The rest is computer work.

I love this too. I really like how vulnerable Ryou looks in this. And I think the snow suits his personality too. :)

I really like the background on this. The show is very well done, and to be honest, I thought he was on some kind of roof. I don't know what Kokoro Ryou means, but I like the way he seems to glow here. So nice and shiny!

I love this <3 You're so utterly talented at drawing Ryo x.x!

I love the way you did the highlights, and the pose looks good! I almost never try sitting poses, they're too hard. xP

And I don't think the backround looks that bad, I could definately tell it was snow.

I think it's a good idea to put watermarks on your work. I mean, I would to, if my stuff was copied.
