D. Gray Man Volume 20- Yu Kanda-Gift by ThePentagonDragonK D. Gray Man Volume 20- Yu Kanda-Gift by ThePentagonDragonK
Long story short, this is a (much early) birthday gift to :iconcrazyanimefreak08:! :iconballoonsplz: :iconcakeplz:

Kanda looked pretty cool on volume 20, so I decided that is what I would draw from...haha (example: [link] or this is what I mostly referred to >>[link])

It all took a process of 3 days- 1 1/2 for pencil, 1/2 for inking and the other day for full coloring/re-inking...throughout, I learned a lot about myself as an artist... and this was just really fun to draw! XD :iconkonataplz:

I think coloring it (I know, I usually hate coloring!) was the most fun...I tried my best to stick true to the cover.

Now I know, it's not perfect! And I know there are probably plenty of errors, but nonetheless I think I could've done worse...and I thought I would, but I didn't, so I'm glad! :D XD But if you close both eyes, then it's perfect! :D

Anyway, please enjoy and I thank ye in advance for any favorites, comments and just views! Happy (early) Birthday :iconcrazyanimefreak08:! ^^

[I'm posting this much early because 1) Not sure where I will be that week and 2) I anticipated finishing much later, but I didn't and 3) I'm too excited to wait! XD]

[Is his hair too blue? XD I'm sorry if it is...I referred to that picture remember!]

[I haven't seen D. Gray Man fully and in a long time (only like 2 or 3 episodes- I know, I'm terrible! XD) but is it me, or does Travis Willingham as Kanda sound kind of...off? I mean, I sort of know the circumstances around Kanda, but still, Takahiro Sakurai sounds pretty young as Kanda and I believe that fits... don't get me wrong, I love Travis to death and I don't mind the voice and character, but it's sort of funny to watch this young looking man with the voice of a full grown adult! XD]

[SCRAPBOOK: Check out my scrapbook if you are interested in the pencil/sketch during my process! ^^]

:iconimhappyplz:.... at first I thought you were asking me to kill you, but no, you were saying you were thinking of KILLING ME! XD now before you respond, let me already put your reply: :iconfacepalmplz:...

but now since I did that, you are gonna say, "That is not how I was gonna respond" or put another face palm of either Ciel or Sebastian, or another character. Maybe you'll do a mix of both.

But now since I say that, you are gonna probably come up with something else- either something completely random, saying "ha, didn't expect that!" or just more of you wanting to kill me! ^^

...love you! :iconimhappyplz: (now you'll respond with, "no you don't..." or "I hate you...", either one or both, something like that! ^^)

......I was just reading Soul Eater and they're asking Soul to play the piano, and he said, "No, I'm not good enough," and stuff, and then Maka was all like, "When you played for me that one time, you were really good," and whatever, and then Soul was like, "You only say that because your musical I.Q. is less than 0." and it reminded me of when people hear us play and are all like, "that was amazing!" but they know absolutely nothing about music......just thought I'd share that since you didn't come up with the scenario of me telling you what I was doing and/or thinking :iconimhappyplz:

haha actually thanks for replying exactly as I thought! :iconimhappyplz: XD

haha you know, as I was reading that, it was like:

"I'm not good enough"
"That one time you were really good"

"that was amazing!"

XD now what does that sound like? XD

haha but yeah, that does remind me of that...
