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.
