Kenshin and Kaoru: Lonely No More by barbypornea Kenshin and Kaoru: Lonely No More by barbypornea
Hi everyone! It was my birthday last July 10, and lately, I have been thinking of the things I did when I was still a teenager. I was a Rurouni Kenshin nerd back then (and I guess until now). I created websites with my fanarts and doujinshi of this series back when I was in high school. Nobuhiro Watsuki-sensei will always be my favorite manga-ka. My art style was greatly influenced by his works (I copied his style before :p).

That's why I suddenly thought of making an artwork of Kenshin and Kaoru. I noticed that I do not have any artwork of them in my gallery, while they were one of my very first OTPs..

So here it is... *sigh* *nostalgia mode*

This was done using Paint tool SAI and Adobe Photoshop CS3.

The pose was based on a Hakuouki CG.

Great picture, I am also a big fan of Kenshin x Kaoru. This pairing is just plain awesome.

This is so beautiful... I've made some Kenshin/Kaoru fanart too, only using pencil, but I'd like to learn how to work using some digital tools..

*holds out bowl* More please!

No, seriously, you've captured them so perfectly (and they are one of my all-time OTPs) that I actually began to tear up a little when I saw this. It is also currently my desktop background. You are very gifted. Thank you for sharing.

Also, if you find you have the time...perhaps you could upload some more of these two? *innocent face*

So beautiful! I love the shading, especially the fabric looks so soft and flowing.
Their faces are also adorable and look just right.

Happy belated birthday! Looks like we're both Cancers! (Mine's the 21st) I loved these two back in the day (still do!), but sadly, my attention was taken away from the series before I finished it. >.< Hmm, I might pick this one up again...

Thanks! Happy Birthday to you, too! :)

You should finish it. And read the manga. It's much much better than the anime (in my opinion) :) )

Thanks again! :D

Yup. I heard about it and I'm excited to see it! I've seen the trailer and it looks good! :)

But I still hope they continue the anime and animate the Jinchuu Arc from the manga.

This is so pretty! I love the gentle and sweet air about the both of them. Kenshin and Kaoru have always been a favorite couple of mine as well. I also love the detail in their hair.

Aw, very cute and great job! I was just thinking about coloring one of my KenshinxKaoru lineart that I did ages ago too. It's nice to know there's someone else who is just as nostalgic as I am. :aww: :XD:

But really, there's something lovely about these two, and you drew it very well.

So yep, favs and kudos from another RuroKen fan.
Thanks for sharing this, keep up the good work. ^_^
