Ryoko the Loner by zargon-yokoshima Ryoko the Loner by zargon-yokoshima
The second in what will hopefully be a series of pictures of my muse. They are meant to explore different sides or aspects of Ryoko, showcase her in some of her best known looks, and help me experiment with various things. The first was my stick art, which showed her in her space pirate outfit, and while it wasn't intended to be part of a series, I was trying to experiment with it.

This outfit is actually one she wears around the Masaki home most often, kind of her casual clothes I guess. As such, I thought it would be appropriate to draw her in it, which gave rise to experimentation with backgrounds and lighting. This piece actually came to represent my mood over the past few months. It was a rough semester for me, so that's contributed to the overall tone. I also made the realization that I actually don't like socializing with large amounts of people, and am something of an introvert. I always thought of myself as very social-able, and I am pretty good with people, but in situations like parties and such, I tend to just want to withdraw and do my own thing.

The original name for this piece was "Ryoko the Boozer", and I made sure to have a beer every time I started working on it. =P

Thank you!

I think the idea is basically that Ryoko is able to manipulate matter (to a certain extend anyway), and thus she is able to create a moving tail. This outfit is one where she mostly lays about the house like a cat in it, so it makes sense to me why they thought it would be cute to add a tail.

Holy Long Island MacArthur Airport what a beautiful piece of work you have here!! The two main elements here (if you wanna call one of them an element) are the light, shining on Ryoko saying she's the important one here and second how everyone looks up at her as if she was the actual leader per say of the household. I love how Mihoshi looks terrified to get close and of course you can't have Nobuyuki without a camera. Swell job!!

She's not drunk...

She's... contemplating.

Deep thoughts and all that.

Great work!
