Ren by manapia Ren by manapia
Request fulfilled! I've been trying to draw a lot of non-exo people lately and i'm suffering because of it OTL so far i have taemin, yesung, youngjae, sungjong, yoona, changmin, and a few japanese actors on my list but there's no way i'm going to get through all of them anytime soon O__O so people who requested drawings from me, please be patient!><
searching for good reference pictures is hard because google image search has its limits and i'm very very picky about the pictures i use:O and i'm finding that i can only draw people i find to be aesthetically pleasing LOL this is terrible><

Edit: REQUESTS CLOSED! thank you to everyone who commented:)

Wow~~ once again I'm back TvT :iconasdfghplz:
You portrayed Ren very well! The contrast of the background and the figure plus the lighting really set the mood (I like how it is vertical and streaky ^^) they give the piece an eerie feeling; he's very bright, almost a ghost ehehe. <3
I do have a bit of advice ;v; I notice that the shadow on his neck has a bit of an outline on the left where the bright light hits. Rather than outlining it, I recommend that you use a sharp eraser to make the edge of the shadow rather than defining it with pencil. ><;; When using this technique though, you have to shade a little over the edge of where the shading of the shadow starts so you have room to cut it off when you erase it to make it precise. ^^ I'm sorry if that was confusing and my advice may be of no help.. T_T
But this piece is beautiful, sorry for bothering you ;; :iconrazycryplz:

Oh also, "i can only draw people i find to be aesthetically pleasing" LOL that's okay! It's actually beneficial because if you like the figure that you're drawing, then you're more motivated to try harder at drawing them ehehe. <3

hahaha thank you for your critique! i'll admit, this drawing was a bit rushed on my part, so i missed that area on my final clean-up that i always do at the end^^ i'm honored that you were looking that closely at my drawing! and no no, thank you for your advice:) i'll be more careful from now on~

Ren! Ren! Ren~! So beautiful. He and Minhyuk have this really Tom and Jerry-esque bromance goin' on. I'm pretty sure Ren wears the pants. He's got this ethereal beauty that you captured so well with the translucence of this piece. And honestly, you really, really don't have to draw Haruma. I can just watch random clips of he and Takeru on those silly cooking shows and get my fix. I honestly like Takeru's personality way more. Haruma's sort of ditzy...it's not his fault, but he just acts like a ditzy chick sometimes, not gunna lie! Whereas Takeru just seems way more with it and real.

ahaha i'll take your word for it! i don't know ANYTHING about nu'est, so honestly this drawing was a bit difficult for me^^; i just know that he's very very pretty^^
and ahaha it's okay, it's not like you're forcing me into drawing him or anything~ i just might place him near the bottom of my drawing list is all;3 and i know what you mean, takeru seems more real, in some sense. i reaaaaaally like sato takeru ahaha. i have a guy friend who looks startlingly like him and i always call him takeru on accident^^

Woah, your friend must be unbelievably handsome. 0_0 He's one lucky guy.

If you ever feel like drawing Takeru, seriously, by all means, have a ball. :nod: I would wait one whole year for that drawing, and then I'd commemorate its anniversary. (It's sad to think this may be ringing some bells)...

ahaha yeah he's a pretty good-looking guy, but he's short like takeru LOL if only he were taller~

ahhhhh no no don't use that analogy T____T i'm tired of waiting srsly~~

Yeaaaaahhh, Haruma's on the tall side. He's definitely got that going for him. Did you see this?! [link]
Gwaaaahhhhhh!

I know, me, too...It's awful, I don't know how much longer I can stand this.

ahhhh rurouni kenshin~ i haven't seen it yet, but the trailer made me cringe at takeru's acting>< period acting always brings out the worst in modern actors in my opinion, and it's not doing takeru any favors in this movie><;; hopefully the actual movie is good though??

Oh, wow, really? I've never thought of it like that, I suppose. They say it's supposed to be the BEST MANGA PUT TO FILM EVER, so I don't know, that's pretty high praise. I'd be really surprised if Takeru didn't give it his best shot, regardless of whether it'd do him many favors. I mean, he'd have to...otherwise, I'd be really disappointed in him.

Ahaha they always say those kinds of things for movies that are hyped up though, huh? Esp Japanese ppl, they always do that lol
It's just -- period drama acting means speaking in old Japanese, and it's so easy to get caught up in saying it correctly and forget about putting in emotion lol. Hopefully takeru doesn't do that^^; too many period-style-pieces-turned-modern movies flop because of that ~__~

Ohh YESUNG IS ON THAT LIST HE'S MY SJ BIAS I'M ANTICIPATING IT--

okay on to commentary about the pic
Since Ren is blonde and there's not really /much/ that can be done with shading in terms of that, I think that you did a good job with defining the strands and such anyway ;A; So that it looks like hair and not just a white blob (which probably would have happened if I attempted it c':)

But I particularly love how you've done the shading for shadows! The neck, and on the face... the detail is really strong, I think ^^

manapia Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2013
ahaha yes yesung is finished! i'll post him soon~^^
yes! i like drawing blonde hair because it forces me to incorporate some kind of background. it's good practice for me:) and i really dislike drawing dark hair because it just takes too much time T___T but thanks for your comment! i'm glad you liked the new technique:3

Yeah, dark hair looks like a lot of effort-- (that, and curly hair.) but I think you're doing a good job so far c:

this one looks a bit different compared with your other drawings, like..um.. even more clearly and sharper..eh...i can't explain, my poor english >< or maybe it's just me. but of course this is incredibly amazing and beautiful as always! thanks!

oh no no, your english is fine:) i'm not great with words myself, but i know what you're referring to^^ i like to experiment with different drawing styles (i get bored if i stick with one style for too long) so that might be it! anyways, glad you liked it!;)

not really a request in that you don't have to get to it anytime soon, but I would love to see you draw INFINITE woohyun or dongwoo someday * v *

ahaha honestly i don't know anything about ren so if he's as bitchy as he's pretty...lol^^;
and i've had quite a few people ask for infinite but i'm such a noob when it comes to infinite D; i don't know any members and i've never seen anything with them in it (i mean, i love their songs, i've just never SEEN them..... except their mv's) so i'll have to research before i draw them! but i'll keep them in mind;)

Ren~ He's so pretty haha How long did this take you? I find feminine faces take a lot longer (that's probably because even back when I drew in the anime style I only drew guys haha)
