I've been watching Saiyuki
for the past several weeks (the original; yes, I'm that far behind on anime), and I'm really enjoying the characters. Hakkai in particular is the one I absolutely adore
, so of course I had to do a fanart tribute of him. <3 He actually became my favorite character by virtue of his personality before his looks grew on me, but now I love how he looks too. ^^
This was supposed to be just a quick practice to try to rediscover a manga style for myself after spending years trying to get away from it, but as you can see, it became a bit more than just a practice piece. ^.^; Sometimes I just can't help it when I'm really liking the way things are going. I know it's nowhere near perfect and it took way longer than it should have, but I'm quite happy with how it turned out anyway.
