Before there was Starfire... by themebi Before there was Starfire... by themebi
Finished Feb 2006. Heh, been awhile since I've been able to finish anything. This isn't much really, just trying to get back into the swing of things and decided to go with something light. Anyway, Ryoko (from a anime series called Tenchi Muyo for those of you too young to remember it lol) here started off as a sketch I did while I was still living in NJ. I remember doodling this while thinking about some of my first anime influences and I ended up inking it. I didn't get around to doing anything more then that though till just recently. Anyway, hopefully more impressive stuff on the way soon, stay tuned lol. =P

*update* This account of mine is no longer active. If you want to see new art by me, please go to my new DA account at :iconkabalyero: =)

When I saw Starfire flying and all that for the first time, I thought 'Hey, Ryoko can do that too.' Yay for Ryoko(and Starfire). :+fav:

Found out that she might be an alien herself and it makes since considering her ability to bend reality. o.o Still kinda trippin off that fact.

Ryoko <3 <3<3<3 <3
you're not in NJ anymore? *misses you* wah, i feel so stupid for not talking to you for so long...
anywhoooo...this is soooo awesome <3
themebi Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2006
Aww *hugs* it's ok, still got love for yah lol. But yeah... I had to move or I would have probably been homeless.... So yeah, I've been living out here in Missouri since September and I have to say... I really don't like it here. If it wasn't for my gf, there would be no reason for me to live here. *sighs* I miss the fuck out of NJ, I really do... Atleast there I knew what the hell I was doing and had a lot more people to fall on then I do here... I swear, I really hate living with my gf's family... nothing but a pack of lying assholes that talk crap about me and my past behind my back to everyone... -_-

if i wasn't having insane financial problems i'd say come live with me D:
don't worry though, things will get better. just ignore their stupidity and look on the bright side. *huggles*

:heart: I love Ryoko!

But Starfire came first. XD Not the Cartoon Network version, but still.

I just love Ryoko more though.
themebi Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2006
Hehe, I really should have clarified that. When I said that I ment it like "Everyone's favorite anime alien!" lol. Oh well, I think most got the idea =P
