D's Smile by E1L0n3wy D's Smile by E1L0n3wy
Wooo!! Product of the storm of creative energy..after writing a paper!!!!!!!!!

:heart:

One of my favorite things about the Vampire Hunter D novels by Hideyuki Kikuchi is that almost every one of them ends with D Smiling about something ^^

Usually there is a line like: "They would take pride for the rest of their life that they were the one who put it there, It was just such a smile."

D is such a very mysterious and intriguing character..He is described as being Darkness given form, his emotions are icy even in the heat of battle, and his eyes show the unfathomable depth and sadness of time...

His motivations and thoughts are so mysterious...

The fact that he sees something in humanity that is worth saving, and that occasionally can even bring a smile to his lips is almost heartbreakingly sweet!

I don't think I have ever seen a picture like this anywhere else...Probably because it is such a contradictory thing...D..Smiling...

I tried my best, and I am rather happy with the result!!

I hope everyone likes it ^^:heart:

**I put up a darker version here:[link]

:heart: ^^ thank you very much :hug:
=D

^^ I was trying to make his eyes smile too. it is hard to draw him without his eyes still looking a tiny bit sad... I think they still do in this picture too... XD but it probably wouldn't look like him otherwise ^^; heheh...

I think you succeeded very well in suggesting that hint of sadness. He has such *beautiful* eyes, the way you draw him.

LOVE IT!
You're so good at drawing D, I envy you! :stab:
LOVE how you draw him to make him actually look like he's described in the books! The manga makes him look like 23 ( :stab: ) He looks better the way you draw him, in my opinion. (No offence Takaki Saiko, the manga D is good to!) IDK he looks more like I saw him while reading the book the way you draw him lol. :psychotic:
Anyway! Great Drawing! :D
