The Bone Eaters Well
(The Lake House)

This is my entry for the group :iconsesskag:#sesskag

The contest requests that we pick a film and have Kagome and Sesshomaru act out the part.

I chose the scene from The Lake House were they are waiting for each other to respond to one another letters. So instead of making a mail box, I used the Bone Eaters Well as there communication portal.

Yes, I gave him a left hand for a reason, to practice my hands and it's not like he never had a left arm to begin with. Gives you an idea of the time frame.


I still require a lot of improvement, you can see my improvements from my gallery by visiting my old profile which you can find at

I tried my best with hands, still could use lots of work, and I decided not to use vector line art, and just do it by hand, it looks a lot nicer, if anyone has a vector line art tutorial to follow with the program Paint Tool Sai, please provide me with some links. My megaman drawing is the only one I have done with vector line art.

I tried to make Kagome's background darker due to her being in the shrine, with still highlighting her hair. I have an issue with coloring dark hair, I have made major improvements though on hair. I never do backgrounds, honestly Sesshomaru's half is the most detail I have ever put into a background. The haziness in the middle is suppose to resemble the portal Kagome passes through when she jumps in the well.

It's well drawn and clean concerning line work and most of the coloring. It can use a bit more flowing in it (the blur tool is your friend), as well as darker shades and more highlights. I encourage you to throw in a bit of your own realistic style (or move forward and make one to make it more unique) and stray a bit from the anime/manga path. It's not that hard (mostly just in the head and the face). Kagome's scarf/tie in the uniform should be more to the front instead of the side. Her hair should have more shades to go with her highlights. If anything start with a charcoal gray so you can shade and make things pop more.
Like I said there should be just a bit more shading, such as shadows, especially around the hands, it could be a bit darker.
Sesshomaru's hair can be a bit longer and also have a few more colors in it. Silver hair tends to be closer to white, so it picks up rainbow like colors, but blues and purples tend to show up more in highlights and such. You can experiment with that and thrown on more white until it makes you happy.

But overall it's very well done :heart:

IT was very well done. It expressed a sad feeling like in the picture. The hands were excellent. I love Inuyasha Stuff personally. The technique is very epic/awesome. I love your technique because: 1-i suck at shadows, 2-i have tried doing art like this and failed(i am not going to post it ever), 3-i like how you showed two different scenes with them back-to-back. The impact was very depressing like just from the picture i could tell that the had a fight or something like that. It made me think that for just one pic it expressed a lot about their relationship.
