Only a Moment by Englehart Only a Moment by Englehart
This is one of my contest entries for the Haikubaikou Fanart Contest.

--Photoshop CS2
--A mouse
--12 hours

EDIT: I won the popular vote and the category for "Best Artisit under 15!" Thanks guys!!!

I really like how this one came out actually. Although it looks awfully similar to amie689's picture: [link]
(Which is awesome, by the way. ^_^)

Kenshin's hand bugged the crap out of me! I spent 2 hours on it and still couldn't get it to look right. Hence the reason I've covered it with Tomoe's hair. Hehehe ^_^ His neck was also giving me problems, mostly because I couldn't get the shading to look right. I spent another 2 hours on that too...*grumbles* Oh well. I'm not going to change it now haha

EDIT: I tweaked Kenshin's hand a bit.

This is simply striking. The amount of detail you put into this is breathtaking: Kenshin's hair looks so silky, and the emotions are accurately portrayed. Amazing job.

Hi, I'm the artist who donated a free sketch request for the HakuBaikou's last contest, and since no one contacted me about who was the one who won it I am here to remind you that you can request anything as a sketch :)

Oh haha I totally forgot about that. XD Umm...how about Tomoe comforting Battousai? I always thought that she would at sometime or another. After all, he was younger than her, and had tons of problems of his own. (I love angst. Can you tell? Haha)

Gorgeous work! Hehe, it looks like you and I have the same problem in reverse. You have the program and lack the tablet, I have the tablet and lack the program.^^

I've also read your Red Haired Samurai fic. I don't have an account there at the moment so I'll say it here, It is my top favorite alongside older woman's "Ichirizuka" and you had better add another chapter soon because I'm getting desperate!^^

Thanks!!! (About my picture and my fanfic) And haha I know I'm terrible with updating. I've been so busy with school that I haven't even had time to draw...but I have actually started the next chapter. I've got about 3 pages written (in a notebook though.) Maaaybe, I can scan it and you can get a sneak peak. Hehe (unless you'd rather wait until I finish it)

I'll settle for either way. Just so long as its updated soon! I wish I knew how you write so well, You seem to capture Kenshin and Hiko's personalities right on the dot.^^

:iconenglehart:
Englehart Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2009  Student
Wow thanks! ^_^ I've been writing ever since I was little, and of course reading too. Reading really improves your writing a lot. (At least with me.) Although I still consider my work to be a bit amateur compared to some of the other authors on this site...have you read any of the stories by Lolo popoki? They're amazing!
Reply
:iconwanderingdragon379:
WanderingDragon379 Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2009  Student Digital Artist
Yeah, I noticed that too. When it comes to the stories I'm working on, I'll have to thank the RK fanfic writers for a huge amount of my inspirations, yourself included.
I can't say I would claim to be the biggest Hiko fan but I like Hiko/young Kenshin and Battousai/Katsura fics best because they seem to be the most well written a lot of the time.

I have read his/her works, I love them all! I think Frigid Waters is pobably my favorite.^^ I think the authors of my favorite stories would be you, older woman (Ichirizuka), Lolo popoki (Frigid Waters), itsawitch (Teenagers), Scarred Sword Heart (too many to list), eventful-event (Off Guard), and a few others. I'm pretty much an RuroKen only fan.^^

Haha the thing I like about the RK fandom is that it's pretty much cannon and there's hardly any yaoi. (Which I hate btw) And I'm very flattered! I'd never thought I'd be up to the level of the great writers of RK fanfiction. :) I'll have to get my story finished before everyone forgets about it! Haha I'll have to see when I have time. I've got to read three chapters, do two worksheets, Japanese homework, and outline an entire chapter in my psychology book. Oh, and I've got a math worksheet too. >.< School is the main reason I haven't updated yet...

Congrats on placing in the contest! I love the soft feel of this. Kenshin's hair is gorgeous.

You get a one month deviantart subscription as part of your prize for winning the popular vote, so if you could let me know when you'd like that to start that would be great. Congrats again!

Congratulations on winning the Popular Vote and Best Under 15 in the HakuBaikou contest. As part of your prize, you get two separate 500 word drabbles (or one thousand word if you'd prefer) from me. Please let me know what character(s) and/or scenario(s) you would like me to write about. Again, congratulations.

Thank you! :) Hmmm...well I think I would like to have a 1000 word drabble about Kenshin during his training with Hiko. It can be a short, cute scene between master and apprentice. ^_^ I've written 2 fanfictions and Hiko and Kenshin's relationship. :)
