request: Kurama x Botan by kaskachan request: Kurama x Botan by kaskachan
:iconradioactiveshake: asked me to draw Kurama and Botan from Yu Yu Hakusho in a playful, romantic scene. I was also given a reference picture so it helped me kinda get the feel for it. I hope I was able to fulfill the request. Epic fail on the background by the way. I couldn't think of what to do for it. XD Also, I hope the characters turned out okay despite all the good references.

Anyway, I apologize for taking so long. I was on spring break recently so I didn't do anything related to drawing at all. Thank you so much for waiting so patiently.

This pairing NEVER occurred to me...TV Tropes has a link to this very page--it's not only well done, but also introduced me to a new possibility. In all honesty, given Yoko Kurama's sadistic tendencies in the Dark Tournament arc, I find that particular aspect of Kurama unlikely to work...

Thank you very much. That's really interesting to hear. I have never watched the series so I didn't know about that. Your comment made me a little curious so I started watching the first few episodes of the series, but I sure have a long way to go yet.

Well, I've actually never seen the series before so I don't know how they are like together, but I'm glad you liked the drawing. :love:

This is playful romantic for sure. A very nice drawing and great pose; great linework, nice darks and lights too. Really like the texture on this one as well. The only critique would be that there doesn't seem to be 3d space between him and her, from how she's sitting.

Thanks! It was something different to draw. I don't think I would have been able to draw it if I didn't have a reference of some sort. O yeah, I ended up altering the pose so I didn't give a link to the original picture.

Hmm..wonder how I would create a more 3d space between them. It kinda looks fine for me. Perhaps maybe more shading or does he just need to be angled more?

I don't know... have her bottom down more? But yea, it's a tricky one.

Oh my goodness. May I ask something? You do your artworks digitally, right? When I look at them, they always have this traditional, vintage-y quality and feel to them which really appeal to me and make your artworks very distinctive. Looks like a texture of some sort? It also reminds me of the widespread use of midnight blue exclusion layer when coloring icons. XD

I really love how your lines flow, especially on the hair. Coupled with your excellent coloring, it looks simply fantastic. I also like how you took the extra mile and made Youko Kurama play with Botan's hair. :iconadorableplz: That seems most apt in this kind of situation, something that Youko Kurama would do. You also managed to make them look hot and absolutely sexy. Awesome.

You've done this piece wonderfully--from the pose, to the atmosphere, to the drawing itself. Makes me feel a little overwhelmed that you granted my request. :iconrlytearplz: I love it! Thank you very much! :)

Wow, what a lovely comment. I read it over so many times! Thank you so much! Makes me so happy. It was a pleasure working on this. :D So glad that you absolutely adore it despite it not having a background.

For my works, it is digitally done. I use a texture to create a more traditional feel to it and I also soften the image too.

Heh, you're welcome, and thank you. I actually usually prefer artworks either without a background or with a very simple background, and I personally find this piece's is fine the way it is. ;) All the details needed are on the subjects themselves, so no big deal. :p

Ah, thought so. But they really look like they're colored with markers. Very awesome technique. :D

Thank you! I don't know how I was able to draw the wrinkles, but I'm surprised that it turned out pretty good too. What I especially like about this drawing is the feet. They actually look decent for once.
