Inishi by bleedman Inishi by bleedman

One of the coolest villains in the Rurunikenshin saga, I sorta made this as a birthday gift for a friend who happens to be a very big fan of the anime.

*shakes head* No no no, anime sucks, the manga is where it rules. The anime ending lacks closure, while the manga one is a happy ending that makes fangirls squeal in happiness!

Enishi rocked hard-core! He was my favorite male character. (Sanosuke and Yahiko tied for a very close second)

I love this drawing you did on inishi! he is my 2nd favorite character in roroni kensin.
HibernaLupus Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2010
Really nice, I love how you've drawn him. The only thing that nags me is that his sword should be longer than that, and straighter too. Plus his name is spelt Enishi (although you've probably been told that already).
If you ever feel like revisiting the Rurouni Kenshin series, would you mind doing a piece on Saitou Hajime? There isn't enough art (GOOD art) of him anywhere. Assuming, of course you've got time to spare what with SB, PPGD and GTAB and all.

Kick-ass! If you ever feel like drawing Shishio and Yumi too... that'd be cool. :D
RedFallingStar Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2010
That's awesome Lolz. I'd love to Shishio in this style, he was my favorite character by far in that series. Nice job

that awesome, i didn't know you did anything think of Kenshin
Balistik-Intsik Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2008
Enishi Yukishiro... one of Kenshin's most dangerous foes. Too bad they wasted their time with that silly feng shui saga and didn't animate this story arc instead.

Great work!
ZhangLiao32 Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well the artist's style changed in the enishi serise, so, they tried to change the style. Plus Feng Sui saga was never made by the stroy writer of the manga

Cool, he looks like one of those hot villians that everyone loves.
cartoonglutton326 Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2006
In all honesty I prefer Shishio over Enishi. Shishio at least had some integrity. Enishi is a great character, he caused
an incredibly dramatic arc in the books, he is stronger, physically I believe than Shishio, he was a great fold for
Kenshin, his power and attacks were amazing, but their is just something about his character that irks me.
Shishio wanted to conquer Japan under the law of "If you are strong you live, if you are weak you die," for himself
but also because he truely believed that truth. He believed that the path of strength would be best for Japan and
its people in the long run. And he was unwilling to compromise his belief for anyone, not Soujiro, not Yumi, not
even himself. Enishi on the other hand is almost incapable of thinking beyond himself. I see his way of thinking
as "I have been hurt and so I am going to hurt the one that hurt me, everyone he loves, everyone around him,
and everyone that gets in my way. Because, obviously THEIR pain is irrelivent when compaired to MY pain."
He is a selfish brat that either can't see beyond his own pain or is too selfish to try. Shishio was a man, Enishi
was in the end, still a child.
ZhangLiao32 Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
okay, first to the arist-
Although i don't know how you take critisism, I just have a few things to say. Enishi is in his late teens, and his arms aren't too muscley. And then about the wattou's blade [the sword's gray part]. It's too short. It's, in comparision to his body, about from his foot to his first ab in comparison. Other then that, I like the picture.

Well, don't forget that enishi thought of tomoe as his sister and mother >_>. It's really not that suprising that all he ever thinks about is killing kenshin, living however he must have to do so. He lost tomoe when he was, what, like seven years old, when he needed the most guidence?

And the esseince of jinchu. Jinchu means devine punishment by human. So, yeah, all he thinks about is his jinchu and what that entales.

And then his thinking. Of course its's childish. He's like...and i know people will call me out on this...but Enishi is kind of like sasuke. All he can think about is revenge. That's how he got the Frenzied Nerves in the first place. His maturity is so low because no one set up a guidence for what is mature, and what is not.

As for shishio...his real goal was the conqure hell because mild-mannered kenshin wouldn't be there, remember? Yeah, I respected that he thought of his goal, but he had the same stuborness as Enishi about his ideal of who should live and who should die. So in all fairness, a majority of the villans of ruruoni kenshin have one-track minds. Either kill battousai/kenshin, or "I won't change my ideals no matter what".

[I think I hit all your points. Just trying to defend enishi a little. I know he's immature and a little creepy sometimes, but he gets kudo points for saving kaoru]
cartoonglutton326 Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2008
First of all thank you for reply to my post, I've been waiting for someone to reply to that forever. Secound of all while Shishio and Enishi were both unyeildingly stubborn and selfish, Shishio at least thought beyond himself. He worked for himself but also something greater than himself, a strong Japanese empire. Enishi did not, everything he did was for him. And I don't care if he said it was for his sister. He may have thought that it was but deep down it was about him. Revenge is always about yourself, it is about your pain, and making them feel your pain. Vengence is inherently selfish. Of course another reason I probably dont like him is because his childish maturity and selfishness are qualities I see in myself. They are some of many qualties about me that I intensly despise. Thats probably a major reason I don't like him, because I don't like me.
ZhangLiao32 Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, I mean, what do you exspect from him? He's like an adict, the only thing they can think about is themselves. He can only think on Battousai. And about Shishio, he actually never really thought of battousai as a threat until Sano destroyed their ship. So, techniquely, his thick headed-ness was more about creating his empire until manga number...13-15? can't remember the volum they destroyed his ship.

Don't be hard on yourself, everyone is that way in one way or another. And if you see those qualities in yourself, then get better then what you think you are. Just saying and achknowlaging that you have less maturity and selfishness won't solve your problem.

I really can't believe I've only just come across this! This is really quite fantastic. You've got amazing proficiency of coloring and your art is, obviously, brilliant. Been reading 'Grim Tales' pretty much since it started. I've yet to be disappointed.
Not to mention the subject matter is... well, quite eye-catching. I commend your friend on their good taste ^_^ and you on your bloody brilliant deviation!
