I went to a cool Japan Festival at my college, and I got my very first Anime plushy. ^^ Black Mokona! I had so much fun!

Watanuki! I didn't expect to see him wondering around through the gallery. ^^ He's really got that 'mystical, mysterious shop keeper' thing down packed, hasn't he? Lol.

I'm absolutely blown by this art. Probably the most beautiful Watanuki I've ever seen. I wish I could just print it and frame it. Seriously.

Wow! This pic is awesome, epic,... Every detail reminds you the works of CLAMP!!! I really love it. I suppose it was a very hard work but the result is fantastic. It's sad that there isn't a reputation system or something like that on DA because I'd given you the max points possible.

surrealgreen Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2010
Well, they have some colored inserts in the manga I have, but they don't stick to eye colors very faithfully; they seem to just paint whatever they feel like painting at that point in time! Still, Watanuki's eyes are usually blue, and Domeki's are usually gold; that's also how they're colored in the anime, and in most of the fanfiction.

This is amazing! Watnuki's my second favorite character (closely following Yuuko). It look like it should be on the cover of the next manga! And you got the clothes perfectly to! Original and beautiful. Perfect

Thanks! That's a real compliment--I LOVE their manga covers, and that was the feel I was trying to go for. I like to imagine that Yuko is in the background of this picture, smoking behind the curtain ;)
