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
