Ryoko Loves yoooooo <3
Might I introduce who is probably my most loved anime character of all time, if not in the top 5.
Its because of that favoritism that made me spend a lot more time on this than I previousl anticipated :crazy:
She's from the Tenchi serieseses... but I like to pretend that Tenchu Muyo is the only one that exists. I love Ryoko for being sexy, powerful, flirty and yet still very sensitive and loving when the time comes. She encompasses space pirate for me <3 I just always loved how snarky and silly she was not to mention the total foil for Ayeka (as a Ryok&Tenchi supporter, I despise Princess Ayeka for anything more than making Ryoko look even cooler XD)
She is where my screename came from back in 9th grade when I conjured up "Ryoko No Kalo" yay for old '90's anime!! X3

The things that gave me the most trouble: a) her hurricane hair, cuz it has been a while since I've tackled anything so spikey >.< and b) that stoopid beam sword. 3) that F$%^&##$% kiss blowing hand. *grumble grumble goes to sketch random hands grumble grumble*
OMG I gotta work on diversifying my expressions! they all look like dis :flirty: :flirty: :flirty: :flirty: :flirty:
Is the heart too much?

I do not own Ryoko, kkthnkx bai <3

LoL ya know I drew Ryoko not that long ago myself XD She had the best, deepest, most developed character out of all of them! I love her and Washu :heart: and I hated Ayeka... most annoying >_>; Ah... that really was a great show, I want the OAV so badly D<

Only advice I could give is that Ryoko has a very sharp, wild, cat-like look about her eyes. I feel like the eyes you drew are a little too round for her.
Very cute! Very nice colors!
Ryoko was always my favorite character from that show!! and Tenshi Muyo was like (besides Sailor Moon) the first anime I ever liked!!! I loved that show!! XDDD

:heart: glad you like :3
Oh man, Ryoko is totally my favorite character from the entire Tenchi series. Always has been, always will be. (Muyo was my favorite, but I liked the other two as well.)

You did a great job drawing her; she's always seemed like a character that would be fairly impossible to draw. Great job with that super chaotic hair.

I'm a big Tenchi fan. It's one of the first animes that I've ever watched. A long time ago when I was in high school(that sounds really bad, lol), I used to wake up at 6 AM to watch anime movies on SciFi. One of them was Tenchi Muyo In Love. To this day, that's my favorite Tenchi movie/show. That fight with Cain was so awesome. Anyways, thanks for posting this and good work. Keep it up! :D
