Year of Water Dragon by Ay-leen Year of Water Dragon by Ay-leen
Happy Chinese New Year 2012! :la:


I wanted to draw something for the occasion and I thought about doing Kenshin Himura from Rurouni Kenshin, because the creature is a kind of symbol for Kenshin. His attacks are also named with the dragon.

Enjoy! :la:

I only see those generic-looking dragons when portraying Kenshin with his hiten mitsurugi, I've never really thought of associating him with a new form/look of this kind. But I must say that I like this a lot despite the contrast in color. I think it also expresses the fluidity of his attacks. My favorite parts are the dragon's eye, Kenshin's face, and the details on Kenshin's hair!

Yeah, that's right, the dragon reminds a little bit Haku, I thought about him while I was drawing it. :)

Elegant composition and strong coloring. I like how the water dragon wraps around him and Kenshin's bandaged yet solemn look. Year of the Dragon is quite fitting for him-- considering Hiten Mitsurugi Ryu has a lot of dragon motifs.

Nice work!
