Ronin Warriors - Ryo by DanielAraya Ronin Warriors - Ryo by DanielAraya
Did this over the weekend to get some fun fanart art out of my system before the new quarter at school starts! I hope it's obvious that this is Ryo from Ronin Warriors. I used to love that show as a kid!

As far as this piece goes, well I hope it shows that I've been working on the figure in motion. I'm still struggling with anatomy but I feel good about this one, a definite step in the right direction.

I used to watch this and loved the show. Tried to watch again, but the early 90's dubbing was so painful! 

Great job on this!

Cool fan art!

I watched Ronin Warriors like mad whenever I got home from school....was fortunate to find a DVD set online (it was on Amazon I think).

Keep up the very good work!

Wonderful angle, the diagonal really makes for an energetic composition. Ryo's pose looks very good as well, the anatomy looks pretty good, which I'm sure was a challenge to get right underneath all that armor. : ) I also like the demonish figure you added, it's a nice twist on a creature coming from the Netherworld. : ) And it's very recognizable as Ryo : ) Really like the BG colors and how gestural you added in the city, it's well done and adds a glow sort of effect, and also makes the scene believable as a moment in the middle of an action.

I keep stumbling across this piece, and it's high time it got added to Favorites. It's incredibly dynamic, which is tough to find in Ronin Warriors art. The gesture, Ryo's expression, the colors, everything is so well thought-out!

Anatomy is difficult, especially when insanely detailed armor is involved. I think you handled it well, especially the foreshortening on the leg and arm.

A fine job, sir!

And now I'm off to peruse the rest of your gallery. :D

Absolutely!

Well, a year and a half, that's not bad as far as paintings go. It would be fun to see the progress.

Would you do Ryo again or somebody else?
