WK: RanxKen + Shioshiro by Asaphira WK: RanxKen + Shioshiro by Asaphira
FULL VIEW PLEASE~~ And warning, LONG comment.

OKAY... first of all, this features Weiss Kreuz's Ran (Aya) and Ken along with their son Shioshiro :heart::heart::heart:, based on Crimson-sama's fic Kind des Schicksals [link] !!!! Therefore, once more, none of these characters are mine. I loved it so much... I was very anticipated into making a fanart.

I HIGHLY recommend that fic to ALL RanxKen fans out there, because it's very thorough and beautifully written, and best of all, they have a SON *_* I SO look forward to the day when two men can have their own child. (please don't smack me.) Anyways.. the photo is based off of Chapter 6, where Hiro (yes, Shioshiro is nicknamed hiro in the fic) shows Kenken a future picture of him, Ran, and their son together. You know what's so cute? Because technically both Ran and Ken are "fathers", Hiro calls them O-Ran and Ken-to (splitting the term "otou"). And Hiro is UBER lovable.

This is probably one that I put most work on ever. It was, obviously, a composition of two parts... had to illustrate the photo first, and then Hiro. I had lots of fun with them :heart: Only... I kinda failed to do Ran justice though... He's supposed to be much cooler look.>_< I guess Ken is alright, he still maintains that energetic smile of his :heart: both Ran and Ken are supposed to be semi- Weiss Side B (with a bit Gluhen touch too) here.. and in their 30's, but I made them look 20's? ^^; As for Hiro, I had to draw him based on the descriptions in the fic, hopefully it's canon to it enough ^^; I imagined him to be a very cool bishounen (come on, with two bishounen as his father, he /has/ to be too). *giggles* He has Ran's eyes and built, and Ken's hair and smile/energy, perfect combo :love:

I had some difficulties with the coloring.. cuz I tried transitioning from CG to cel-coloring, now it looks semi of both. Grr. It looks /very/ different from how I usually color, hope you can still tell I drew it >_<; But I honestly had lots of fun with the challenges. Still can't do proper folds.

OMG OKAY I have to stop talking. :heart::heart::heart:for all WK(and non-) fans, READ THE FIC :heart::heart::heart:

[Edit/]: This pic is also dedicated to ~Miss-vampire, who drew the first Shioshiro fanart for Crimson-sama. Because of her initiated aspiration, I was inspired as well ^^

As far as weiss goes... I'll read it if its a good fanfic... for ex: this one on catsdreams.com has a hiliarious one about Aya undercover ^_6 and that one is Aya x Yohji (*wrinkles nose*) but all the stuff Aya is made to do is hiliarious... and everybody is pretty close to in character other than Yohji... *sweatdrop*... but I like fanfic ideas like yours... its interesting to see the what the mix of two characters would look like.

Waaahh, thank you so much for the lovely comment!

Yes, although it has been three days ago since the ending... I'm still totally in love with the fic. It is a beautiful story though, laugh, crying, panic, happy, it did all. One of the strongest points of KdS is how visual it is... and it's a really great inspiration tool. Thank you so much for the favorite as well. Must keep up the RanKen-ness as well x3

I agree with you on your opinion of KdS. It's very visual, it made me laugh and cry. I had a feeling about what was gonna happen to poor Hiro. I was soo sad. I'm thinking about going back and reading it again. XD I love RanKen also, I need to draw more pictures of them.

:iconasaphira:
Asaphira Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2005
I know.. I guessed that something drastic is going to happen to Hiro, but the saddest part is the interaction between him and Ran and Ken.. it's how much their relationship has built up that makes the deathblow much more painful. :crying:

:giggle: I'm even thinking about printing the whole freakin fic out to carry around... haha, there goes a lot of paper. Andu.. YEAH draw more RanKen! ;3 promotion is definitely good!

I know exactly what you mean. I love how she gradually brought Ran around to loving Hiro. And Hiro righ from the start was so attatched to Ken... :cries: I guess there wasn't really any other way for it to end though. I probably won't print the story out, ^^; but I'll definitely go back and read it again. I should probably go and finish some of my RanKen pictures that I have in progress. I'm so horrible, I always jump around in series. ^^

I've seen the story, in fact its in my inbox right now from one of the C2 alerts for RanKen stories. I just haven't gotten around to reading it yet. ^^; I've got like 200+ stories in there already that I want to read but don't have the time. I haven't read her thank you chapter yet, I'm gonna do that in a minute. ^_^ I'll try to get some fanarts up for you to enjoy.

Wonderful KdS piccie.. *nods head* your CG skills are so much better than mines... I'm so envious.... *slight chuckkle* gotta love the RxK goodyness... *shakes head* your Shioshiro is so cuter than mine.... *looking upwards* I'm currently doing more fanarts of him, but my love life seems to be taking more time than my actual real life... *slight chuckle* but I'm posting a new one, not finished, just the sketch (I'm still battling wiht photoshop.... ) in the mean time. Hope you got the time to see.

I love the piccie and the way you colored it, I suggest you to be a bit more carefull with the folds and creases of the fabrics, they usually start in an specific point, spreading in the oposite direction. It also depends of the tipe of fabric you want to color, they can vary from soft curves to straight lines.... this comming from a fashion designer so... sorry if the critisism bothers you *slight blush* take it as a little advise to improve your skills....

Your drawing skills are awesome too, at your age I wasn't even that close.... *shakes head* but again.... I suggest you to practice more with the hands... *pointing at kenken's hands* at least, for me those were one of the hardest things to draw.... but practice makes perfect.... so, I hope to see more KdS and RxK fanarts in the future.... *nods head*

:hug::hug: Thank you for 1) the very kind comment, 2) the criticism, and 3) the favorite :heart: I honestly love your critic. very much, as a matter of fact, it is very helpful ^^ I know the folds and hands were off, and your advice somehow gave me a better sense of how to draw them (at least the folds factor). And it is neat hearing it from someone who has experience in fabric :giggle: Hands are really difficult to get right, I'll practice some more. Thank you for your help and wonderful comments, and yes, most definitely keep up the KdS and RanKen fandom! :love:
