I tried something different on my last picture, using more of a painted look, but only as a quick picture. I thought I would work into this one more, and I guess it took about twice the time. And a lot of fiddling about with his eyes. Although I believe it was worth it, for he actualy looks Japanese.
How many pictures have seen of him that both look like Ryu and Asian?
All his character pictures are anime, and the few that are realistic, either don't look Asian, or like Ryu.
I tried, and I'm proud with the result!
