Kenshin - 15th anniversary by MorgainePendragon Kenshin - 15th anniversary by MorgainePendragon
This one costs me over 20 hours to get ready. I used coloured pencils (Faber Castell Monochromos) and took a photo of it, because of it's size (DIN A 3 in german). But for HIM it's ok, it's ALWAYS worth it. Since 2003 I loved the little Redhead-Samurai and I'm still addicted to him^^.

There's no anime or manga which touched me the way Nobuhiro Watsukis Kenshin did and still does.
The two souls in his heart, the assassin and the wanderer, fascinated me from the start. Such a sad story... Though the TV-series is pure fun to watch, I cried my eyes out while watching the amazing OVAs...

With this piece of art, using works of the wonderful Astuko Nakajima as reference, I want to celebrate the 15th anniversary of an unforgettable story, an amazing charakter and the upcoming new spin-off-series!

Please check my other Kenshin-artworks if you like. And celebrate with me!^^

I can't wait until the new series comes!!! OMG!!! *fangirl desu*

Thanks for your comments and watches so far!!! *big hug*

See ya!

Morgaine

PS: Please view it in original size!!!^^

Very nice!

And I know! So excited for the new series. I wonder if it will be on the 3rd arc of the manga or something new. Probably my favourite anime although Bleach is a very close second. Kenshin is neither good or bad and it was always amazing to watch his struggle to find some semblence of balance in his life. The music score was the best thing about it though. It was extremely mood evoking. Just sucked you right in.

Anyway, very nice piece once again. The colours are brilliant and you did a fab job with the shading.

Thank you so much for your kind words! Glad you like my drawing-style^^
I really agree with what you wrote. Kenshin and Bleach are both my favourites too^^.
I remember to hear, that the new series is about the time between the first OVA and the TV-series. But I'm not so sure either. We'll see! But I hardly can't wait any longer too...
