Dawn Rises by joulee Dawn Rises by joulee
A commission I drew last summer and I only recently got the file again after transferring art from my old laptop to my current one. ^_^ The topic was an OVA-style Kenshin walking away from his bloody days of death and killing, leaving behind a ghostly Tomoe and walking into the sunlight.

The commission was done in full color and much clearer/brighter, but I will only be posting this dream-like monochomy version. Apologies if it's hard to see. ^^

Very well created. I love this.

I am working on a music fan vid for youtube using pictures and fanart of Kenshin and Tomoe, and with your permission I'd love to include this piece in it. You will be given credit of course since this obviously was not created by me. Let me know if I can ASAP and if I can't that's all right :)

Like the blurry feeling about it, but the perspective seems to be distorted when I look at the mountains and the moon.

This is really cool i like the fuzzy dream affect and I like the woman in the back she looks very ethireal also I think you did a great job with the gleam on that sword thats excilent. However, kenshin's arm looks incredibly small for the size of his uperbody and it throws off the leg size making them look really small too, im not sure which is smaller but ones effecting the other and its making him look like he's laking important parts of his body.

aww thank you! I'm glad you like it. Yeah, the OVAs have an awesome story, although I wasn't as fond of the art style. I think I'm warming up to it, though. ^___^

Woah! Awesome-ness. I love Kenshin and the symbolism here is enhanced by the dreamy quality. Actually, it might be cooler if it got sharper as he walked away, but hey, this one is just as great. Keep it comin!

I drew something like that once. Just without Tomoe. I can make out Kenshin, and just barely Tomoe. I love how you did the light coming through the clouds in the sky. A rare site indeed^^.

The darkness fits the mood.. I don't know if I'd like a brighter picture better or not... hmm.... :D

I sort of like the blurriness effect too. Maybe I should try it on more of my pictures! Alas, it makes it harder to see what's going on.
