Art (c) me
Medium : watercolor, 11x17.5 cm.


Bear me babbling <3

Well it took me a really long time to finish this. In fact I just spent about a little more than 2 hours for coloring as usual. The chronophage is the sketch. Perspective and anatomy are just hell on earth =__=. Don't blame me please, I tried my best orz.

This is a different kind of watercolor pad from the one I usually use (very thin canson) The texture looks defferent, no ? xD I feel more comfprtable on this one <3.

I feel like talking a little more about the character, Maki-san. You must have seen me drawing him a lot before, no ? <3 The story happens in 2060. Maki-san is an inspector leading The National Research Institute of Police Science, the Ninth Department of Forensic Research. for short, the 9th. They look at dead people's memory to solve crimes.

He has a young and feminin look but in fact he's pretty old, I mean really. He never smiles, people believe that that is because of the incident years ago, when Maki have killed his best friend. It was appropriate self-defense. However he can't forgive himself because he IS both direct and indirect cause of his friend's death.
Well he loved that person

That book he always hold when sleeping, is told to contain a gun to shot himself when needed. He wears bulletproof vest all the time too so that he could only die from a shot in the head. He won't let anyone look in his mind even after death. That person has a lot of secrets to protect. And he have seen a lot of people's too.

Thank you very much is you have read this far. x"d <3

I maybe just be a bit in love with you *_* There is so little Himitsu fanart, it's a wonder that someone so talanted is in this fandom. Your art is so delicate and always spot on. Have I already said I'm in love?

I like the concept behind this, and you've captured Maki very well.
(I'm also jealous of your watercolour skills. I so wish I had the skills to use watercolours without my paintings turning into collosal failures...)

After looking at your fanart entry on the Himitsu community, I had to come to your DeviantART account. Holy cow... your art is so beautiful. Your skills with traditional media blow me away. I love Maki's expression and his eyelashes and the wonderful and fitting colors you chose. I love the hands, too, and the way you drew such a peaceful but terribly sad picture. I am always in awe of you. *A*

I love the troubling aspect this has. He seems so peaceful, sleeping like that, but laying
on the railroad track like that gives the impression that the character is on edge, or even suicidal.. I love it!!
