Boys Over Flowers by jbramx2 Boys Over Flowers by jbramx2
So its' not a fanart or parody of the anime/manga series Flowers Over Boys, but it does have boys and it does have flowers...sorta. (what are they? etheral white sakura?)

Behold a return to my bright colors! Sorta. Okay, then Behold a return to my days of providing fanservice for the girls with pretty boys. No no, I did that with Bring Out the Ghost recently. Nevermind, More like...Behold a return to my schoolgirl roots!

Tis the Samurai Troopers! aka, The Ronin Warriors here in the US. They were my third taste of anime. I discovered them in fifth grade, some time AFTER they were taken off the air. (my first taste being Sailor Moon and third being Magic Knight Rayearth). They'd be my second taste of anime, but I never saw an episode of this show until I was in seventh grade. I had seen MKR before that. But I was a huge fan of this series thanks to my friends who had seen it while it was on air. I finally got to see the majority of the series in highschool. (JB has yet to see a couple of episodes from the beginning...)

Point is, this is an old show. :XD: One that JB shall always hold dear to her heart since it help her get through the boredom that is junior high. XD

Going clockwise with dubbed name in parenthesis, tis Touma (Rowen) Hashiba, blue-haired sleepy genious, Ryou (ryo) Sanada, passionate leader, Shu (Kento) Rei Fuan, super strong and a big eater, Shin (Cye) Mori, sea-loving peacemaker, and Seiji (Sage) Date, ever-calm and cool swordsman.

I still don't know which boy's my favorite. Most fans can pick one or two as their faves, but I like all of them. I like Seiji's backstory best, I like Ryou's looks best, I like Touma's odd personality best, I like Shin's cuteness best, and Shu...well he's Chinese and I tend to have a soft spot for Chinese anime characters. :XD:

(gee, JB, were you always this shallow?)

Too bad the show never really touched upon these details and more (fans found out about them after the CDs and OAV's came out). I found out about this in highschool after I got the internet. Arrgh, this show has a potential to be good! I wish someone would pick it up and redo it. XD; I think they made this series in response to that manga-inspired series Zodiac something, *forget what its called...* lol, I know that show in Spanish is called "Guerreros del Zodiaco" *snickers*

ANYHOO, this was drawn on Open Canvas, and inked in my brand new Manga Studio program that I got at AX. Yay, it makes such a pretty lineart. ^o^ I was tempted to post it on my gallery, but decided to color it instead. Took me longer than I expected, mostly becuase I've been busy with work and the background alludes me as usual. I was going to post it yesterday, but the background (a bamboo print pattern) really disgusted me and I went crazy on photoshop with colors and layers. XD; Somehow PINK got in there and this is the result. Poor ronins, I totally girly-fyed them. XD XD XD I actually made this fanart to use in an ID contest for one of the RW clubs on DA. It probably won't be this girly looking, so fear not! :XD:

Enjoy! X3

OhmygoodnessIlovethis! I love Ronin Warriors, and they're my favorite anime ever! XD I love how much you know about them too haha! So much info that I can say "Ooh, newness!" And I don't think I could pick just two, either XD

I love Rowen because of her personality and name, Ryo because even though in the beginning he kinda sucked, he always got through it, Kento because he's just like my boyfriend(LOL), Sage because he's just gorgeous and saves all those animals, and Cye because he's such a cutie-pie! I like them all. No reason to pick favorites XD

This is awesomely colored, by the way. The shadows and highlights are magnificent, and the individual faces are lined and structured beautifully! I love it lol definitely one of my top favs! ^^

heh heh, Seiji is sexy, much to his displeasure...he's afraid of girls! According to the series CD's, its cuz of his big sister who teased him a lot, (he also has a little sister whose too casual and indifferent in comparison to him). He's also worn his hair like that since he was in kindergarten...apparently his sharp pale eyes intimidated other children, so hiding one eye lessened the effect. LOL, i'm not making this up. Thank you btw, I really appreciate it. I'm glad you liked him. :D
