Sci fi/Fantasy image by

This is a pic commissioned by my best friend, Jessica. This is of her charater, Ryuuen, from a fanfic of hers. He is based off of the characters in the anime Fushigi Yuugi. He is a senshi marked with Oni, the sign of the ogre. He is many things, amoung them a blacksmith and a horseman. He also plays flute and has many musically-related friends. He has immense strength, but at this point in the story, he isn't yet aware of it. I worked for a while on this, puzzling how exactly I wanted to execute it. I don't draw many males, so I had that challenge to face. Luckily, the pose came somewhat quickly, but once I scanned it in and then made the lineart in PhotoShop, it lay in my hard drive, uncolored. Finally I decided to tackle it. I was feeling kinda guilty for taking so long with it. Well, anyway, with the help of a tutorial at melissaclifton.com, I was able to colorize this to my satidfaction (and my friend's, ^_^). Anyway, here he is, Ryuuen the blacksmith. Made in Photoshop CS3. Please comment and critique. Thanks ^_^
