Ever since middle school and through high school,I have always drawn these two and imagined these two as best friends (even though their character wouldn't actually get along with one another).Even so,these two never left my mind, Zelos Wilder (Tales of Symphonia
) and Ritsuka Aoyagi (Loveless
Now many of you know Zelos to be a womanizer and ignores the guys (or something like that?) and most of you ship him with Sheena.I OTP ship them too
And others know Ritsuka is with a...man and comes from a shounen-ai manga/anime. I am well aware of this,but because I was,I only read up to the kiss scene and stopped from there. However,Rituska grew on me as did Yuiko so I OTP shipped them together ever since (RistukaXYuiko).So now,these two have never left me and decided to draw them once again after some years of not drawing them.
This started when I heard these songs from these two bands.I'll give you one of each:
-Ristuka Aoyagi sings this song (plus one more) of this band "Move Along
" by All American Rejects
(and I've always imagined Yuiko to be Ritsu's drummer.lol)--> www.youtube.com/watch?v=XleOkG…
-Zelos sings this song (plus two more) of this band "Doctor
" by Cute Is What We Aim For
(and Ritsuka is one of his guitarists and vice versa for the other's band)--> www.youtube.com/watch?v=alXdsO…
yes,I know this is very strange to many of you but I'm just that weird.So... Random chibi sketches of the two!!
What is ZaR
ZaR is simply this,Zelos and Ristuka. It took me awhile to come up with something unique and creative and this was it.I had imagined that sometime ago that Ristuka used to vlog about his life and went by the username of BlackKittyButterfly
.This sprouted from my idea in middle school when I called it Ristuka's corner.A random anime character from my "anime family" vault would go up to Ritsuka and ask him questions and at times talk to him but within a short amount of time and with short replies from each person.Then one day,Ritsuka changed when he met Zelos.Their first meeting wasn't the greatest given their opinions,but after awhile,Ristuka saw something different about Zelos and Zelos was seeing something unique about Ritsuka.Soon these two opened up to each other and became band mates.Or buddies.
Same thing XD lol and now these two (who are married to their spouses [ZelEena and RitsuKo] have started a vlog of their own called ZaR after Ristuka deleted his old vlog acct.)
Now drawing them in modern clothes was...difficult.Especially Zelos.Ristuka was not that difficult since I had an idea while listening to the song (above).And had to make him look more like a boy.lol
Zelos on the other hand was...very hard only because I had no idea what he would wear.Accept the idea of the plunging V-neck line.The rest was probably the most difficult,but this is the only thing I could come up with for Zelos so,it's not that great and plan to change it (at some point).
- Zelos' head is too small
- I think I made Zelos' torso too short too...
- Ritsuka looks ok.
- I think I need to redo them at some point ; u ;
Zelos Wilder belongs to Kousuke Fujishima
Ritsuka Aoyagi belongs to Yun Kouga
