Very Early IY Drawing by M-Skirvin Very Early IY Drawing by M-Skirvin
One of the ones I did when I picked up a pen and pencil after 6 years of drawing NOTHING. I think I've gotten better since then....:D

Very nice! I love how your style has changed so much, though! Now the IY you draw is uniquely yours :D

I like him my way too. I decided early on that Takahashi has her style and its her own. I need to stick to MY own. Copying another person's style is OK for learning, but not at all OK for establishing one's own artistic identity. :D A good example of this is:

I can tell an InuYasha drawn by Youkaiyume from one drawn by KrisCynical from one drawn by Giovannag from one drawn by Shuangwen. But if they all drew like R. Takahashi, then they would all be rubber stamped and then what would be the point of it?

After all, the point of fan art is not to show how well I can draw like RT, rather, the point is to show my own take on the series and its characters.

I like pushing for an InuYasha that shows many of the original facial features: Oversized eyes, slender pointed chin, small nose, arched angled eyebrows, but also give him realistic dog/human (a bit of a slight mix)ears, more realistic hair, and little things like lips that have color and greatly heightened eye detail. This keeps as much of his RT look as is feasible and still makes him look for real.

I've seen some illos of InuYasha that give him a squared man's chin. I don't agree with that technique, really. I think it detracts from his otherwise exotic appearance. But that's just me and my own point of view.:D

But, it is a unique way to present him and that's all over awesome no matter what!:lol:

So now that I've rambled off at the mouth, I should say THANK YOU :heart: and move along quietly now....:D

Well, holy CRAP, woman, for being the first thing you drew in six years AND an 'old' picture at that, it's quite pwn...worthy! XD <3 You may not be 'cut from that cloth', but I think you've got the anime style down quite well.

I respect your decision to move away from it, though, because your more developed, realistic style is absolutely gorgeous, and you seem to always outdo yourself with each new shiny piece. ^o^

Ooooo thanks for the kind words! We likes them, my precious....

It isn't literally the "first" one.... That one is another similar image but InuYasha is wearing a t-shirt that says "AKC Kennel Club" on it. I've been looking for it, but haven't yet found it....Dagnabit....

Well, I can say you were still pretty good then. But I would think your style has changed drastically in the last 6 years.

He looks more cartoony here and your draw more realistic now. A definite improvement, but still better than I can do. :XD:
