I always wanted to draw Kuroh and Shiro in traditional Japanese clothing…although this one did not turn out very well haha…

I think I will draw some more of these kinds of drawings later.

Textures are from Pixiv.

This is so beautiful. I love the mixture of the cold and bright, kind of blurring light and the harsh contrasts of the monochrome theme.
How you arranged the black and white parts is just ... genius. I don't know what else to call it. There is a wonderful balance on both sides, since they each have light as well as darkness. And your style makes it look like these polar oppsites are tearing at the characters, at the same time connecting them and pulling them apart from each other. The textures are really well chosen, too. They make the theme look a lot softer than it would with more plain colors. The picture gives off an almost timeless feeling like this, comparable to old, slightly stained paper. I love that so much.
There is something about this picture ... It's hard to describe, but I feel a tinge of sadness looking at it. The facial expressions really add to the somewhat heavy atmosphere, especially Kuroh's eyes with this striking touch of color to them. I just can't help staring at them.
I'm not sure about the emblem though. I mean, it's done well ... still it kind of keeps distracting me from the characters. But that's a personal thing, I guess, since I'm not too fond of emblems in general.
I love this picture anyway, great job. I'll go and check out your other works for sure.
