dance with the crows by Niji-iro dance with the crows by Niji-iro
My gift for the Secret Santa Event at the Nabari no Ou Community on livejournal.

I hope she will like it. I didn't know what character she wanted so I just drew Yoite like always.

I tried some new techniques out while coloring, I hope he looks okay. And sorry, I don't know how to draw birds but I like them >.< Crows are such beautiful creatures.

Yoite ; Nabari no Ou (c) Yuhki Kamatani
Art by me :heart:
Crow References from Google
Done with Watercolor, Pencil, white Uni-ball Gelpen, white gouache, Liquid masking film (first time using it). Touched up with PS.
Time taken: 5-6h

Listened to - Harry Potter and the philosopher's stone Audiobook :heart:

I asked on LJ if you had a DA account so i could fav it, but i did a bit of research on my own and managed to find you!

I did like my gift very much, the whole is beautiful, he looks very peaceful; i love the anatomy and the pose, of both Yoite and the crows, they look realistic and proportioned; the colours look very good together; i love the fact that you used watercoulours because i am very fond of traditional media, they go very well with Yoite; so thank you very much!

Just a little something, i'm a he, not a she :giggle:

Ah sorry I totally haven't seen the comment or else I would have told you ^^''

I'm really happy to hear you like it this much, it's always a pleasure to draw Yoite, especially when he's appreciated like that :D
I love to use watercolors but I think I should buy some new ones soon, somehow I'm not satisfied with them anymore ^^''

Ah and I'm really sorry about the gender-confusion. I'm so used to have female watchers and a lot of fans of Nabari are females too so I just asumed you were a girl too >.<'' how nice to see there are male fans of this series too :D

Aghhh, I didn't know about that event!!! Damn, that's my fault, I don't check LJ often enough.
... ahem...
So, this is so awesome *__* Your art is beautiful, as always. The colouring looks great :D What kind of new technique did you use this time? (want to learn too)
Btw, that was what I was going to request as a commission, a fanart of Yoite with crows xDD So I'll have to think of something different, because my wish has already been fullfilled. I'll think of something cool, promised.
(whoa, long comment, holidays are great)

Ahh what a pity. But there might be another event next year :D

Thanks a lot, for your lovely comment :heart: I'm glad to hear you like it ^^

Well I used a White Gel pen and Liquid Masking Film for the first time. Well and I tried to use a bit different colors from usual. I use way to often green/blue tones ^^''

Haha what coincidence, well if you still want a picture with yoite and Crows I don't mind at all! I love to draw Yoite anyway and Crows too :D I also like to draw cats btw. ^^''

I'm going to write you soon about the commission. Sorry I'm a bit busy around christmas and all. But I won't forget it :D
