You may have already read it in my recent journal note. I've been watching Kara no Kyoukai the past couple of days.
It's just awesome. It has a very mysterious aura to it, very dark, some times deep, the tone's very serious, a couple of the issues talked about are deep... Like the one about pain, or that other one about "flying". Stir in some awesome fight scenes, haunting music by Kalafina and some element of blood and gore -
This is the main protagonist of the show - Ryougi Shiki.
The first time I encountered this character was during the times I played with the fighter game maker "Mugen". I downloaded Shiki Tohno first, liked him very much, started to research about the game that he's from and eventually stumbled upon Shiki RYOUGI. From there I began to watch the first couple of movies of Kara n o Kyoukai and loved it. For some reason, I only decided to continue watching the rest now.
I also LOVE using her in Melty Blood: Actress Again Current Code. :rockon: It's the 2D fighting game created by "Typemoon" who also created other awesome series (like Fate Stay Night). She's addicting to play as in this game. Her juggle combos are so easy to do. And her Last Arc move... Ah... My favorite in the game.
In this drawing, I simply wanted to make Shiki look badass. With those eyes fully activated. By the way, her powers are one of the most unique I've encountered by far. I also added a night time city scene as background then smudged it into a blood smear design...
I also have an earlier drawing of Shiki Ryougi here: [link]
