This is a sketch of Morimura Tenma from the Harukanaru Toki no Naka de series that sorta came out of no where. I was sketching a pic of Ichigo and it just hit me that I had to watch some older eps of Haruka... so I put on eps 11 of the Hachiyoushou TV series (the one with the best Tenma moment in it) and had to draw his eyes. There's a scene in that episode where you get a huge close up of his eyes, so I just paused the DVD and tried to sketch them; ended up sketching his entire face. And I had to add some blood somewhere..... hehheh
This first color job was done in Photoshop. I keep reverting back to using dark tones (ex. the shadows in this pic) and such... The original version without the shadows is much brighter and you can see more detail in his hair, but... I like the darker feel to it. I'm currently recoloring this in COMICART CG illust 4 Plus so hopefully I can get that uploaded sometime, too. The only problem with that is... I don't know the program well, it's in Japanese, and I'm using a new tablet to color/draw with... so it's going to take some time and experimentation to get used to everything.
