We're not going to talk about how I squealed like the total fangirl I am. >.> Nope. I mean, I am a fangirl but normally I can keep it under wraps. xD Great job! I'm going to go stalk the rest of your stuff now. xD
Wowza. This art is amazingly detailed. I also enjoy the semi-realistic (If not borderline fully realistic.) style you have chosen. Also, the colours you chose are just lovely, I like the greyish tone too. I find the grey colours make his eyes stand out a lot more. ^^
The only thing Kenshin look similiar in the very beginning the Rurouni Kenshin manga is Jin (YYH in either manga and/or anime). That was my first thought when I saw manga Kenshin "He looks alot like Jin!" I never heard Kenshin being based off from Kurama. That's the 2nd time I've heard about it. All I know that in the Japanese YYH voice actress is Megumi Ogata and that same person did Kenshin in the drama CDs, not the anime. Mayo Suzukaze did the anime voice.
