Miyavi means elegant

Miyavi means elegant

Miyavi means elegant by Marla
Miyavi means elegant by Marla


My first digital portrait, it's Miyaviii~ T__T (Marla + jrock = yay ;___; )

EDIT: description disappeared X(;; I used a small picture of Miyavi for reference while drawing, did sketch in pencil and CGed completely in photoshop with mouse.

EDIT 2: First, this is a male, and second, it's NOT a photograph NOR did I steal it from anywhere. Look up the original photo and compare it to my drawing, you will see the differences. I have the sketch I used as lineart for this CG too.

DarkVallkyrieWongWow, magnificent job. I've rarely seen a portrait look this realistic, and I don't think I've *ever* seen a Miyavi one done so well! Definitely a +fav to this one. May I shake your hand?

(I was gonna comment about the whole "miyabi means elegant, not Miyavi" thing, but 1: looks like people have already beaten me to that and 2: you probably knew that anyway X3)
