Gah... I took a lot longer than I should have on this.

Okay. Description. Well, I decided I should get better at pencilling real life stuff, due to inspiration from several amazing dA Greats, the first that springs to mind being *nichol. If you haven't seen her stuff, I suggest you go now, her tutorial also helped me to draw that lip. I like that lip.

Sooo... I found a picture. Bloody low-res thing it was. Damnit. THEN I decided to use a4 paper and I thought "Oh, for an added challenge, lets ONLY USE AN HB PENCIL". Whatever.

STUPID BRAIN.

PS: Critique is accepted thankfully as long as it is constructive. Comments will always be replied to and favourites thanked!



EDIT; Thanks to some constructive criticism from ~geurge I'm resubmitting this with a plain background. I reckon it's a billion times better, so cheers!

EDIT NUMERO 2; Some lovely people on dA told me that this guy's Ruki from the Gazette. Why didn't I know that? I KNOW the Gazette. Gosh and darn it.

EDITO 3; Blimey. 136 comments, 57 favourites, 1500 views and counting! I'm bloody honoured, is all I can say. <3

EDIT FOUR: 151 comments, 89 favs and 2483 views. I have to say, this is astounding. Thank you all so much for taking the time to click and/or say lovely things! You're all beautiful. <3

pencil work is very pretty, though the proportion is kinda off to me, I know Ruki is wearing a really huge hat, but I still think head and hands are too small,... same problem I always face (maybe it's also the hat that's a bit too big?)
anyway, well done

Holy crap that is a good picture!

I could tell it was Ruki from the thumbnail. ...Am I really that obsessed? :noes:

Anyway, he looks really sexy in this pic, great job.
