:icondonotplz::iconusemyartplz:

This submission wraps up the last of my paid commissions from Anime Fannatiku 2011. There wasn't much description given for this piece but, if I remember correctly, the commissioner wanted to give me more artistic freedom to work with (which I completely appreciate). This piece also made me realize how difficult it is for me to keep my linework clean. Since this piece did not get inked for coloring or anything, it was a huuuge hassle to try to avoid smudging the overall picture.

Anyway, this image features Kenshin and Kaoru from Rurouni Kenshin (which I haven't seen in yeeeaaars). Please forgive me if Kaoru appears to be slightly out-of-character but I thought it would be slightly comical to see the Hitokiri Battōsai getting his butt kicked at swordplay!

Thanks! :)

Well, in the manga Kenshin says he's not too good with a practice sword, so gives Kaoru some advantage. Heehee

I think he just said that as an excuse not to spar with her.

Hmm. That's a possibility considering Kenshin never wants to hurt her.

May I ask your permission to colour your line-art?
Reply
:iconojansan:
OJanSan Featured By Owner May 5, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Certainly. The only thing I request is that you please provide a link back to the original or at least credit me appropriately with the original linework. When you finish it, share a link with me! I always like seeing colored versions and I will share a link to it in the description.

Thank you for asking. :D :heart:

What, are you kidding? I don't think Kaoru's out of character. XD However, I do love the idea about Kenshin getting his ass whupped by a mere girl. ;) We all know Kenshin can beat her in swordsplay anytime. :D

I love the sketchiness. Kenshin's so cute there. ♥
