Hey everyone, give a big welcome to Ryo-Misaki!

Better look candid for this picture I'm taking myself.

Better look surprised for this picture I'm taking myself.

His hobbies include watching anime, drawing anime, wearing those shirts about wanting Japanese girlfriends, and working at Applebee’s.

Boy, he sure wants a Japanese girlfriend!

His anime drawings are quite professional and show a lot of talent!

Just look at that emotion!

Just look at that emotion!

Look out! He will KILL YOU!

Look out! He will KILL YOU!

Now he will belong to the ages.

Now he will belong to the ages.

Truly the work of a superb artist.

Truly the work of a superb artist.

That last one may be too amazing to truly comprehend. Luckily, Ryo-Misaki was kind enough to write out the details for all of us!

I’ve been wanting to do a picture of Oni Ryo for a LONG time now…
So, I finally did.

This character hasnt been drawn for… errrr… 2 years or so? O__o
Not since I first created him…

So, for those of you who HAVENT been keeping up with me for ages… I better explain some things about him.
(I’d like to point out… HIM. Ryo STILL is a guy… Really. Dont let the scrawny physique and girlish hair fool you… >__>;;; )

This, is Ryo Misaki.
The same Ryo Misaki I’ve been drawing in just about every other drawing I do…
However, this is a bit different…
I did mention ONI Ryo. (Demon Ryo)

Long ago, after a couple years after creating Ryo… I decided that I wanted him to have some sort of dark past, and alternate/transformed persona…
You know… like so many over done Anime cliches? Yeah, I fell into that… XD

So, I created this Demon Ryo.
Technically… He’s not a demon, though. He’s actually just a (MUCH stronger) alternate personality.
You see, Oni Ryo is actually a physical manifestation of negative emotion.
You remember how Ryo is always happy, right? Naturally, it’s impossible for someone to be like this. Inevitably, someone has to experience some anger, or sadness, or loneliness… But Ryo seemingly doesnt.
So how? He takes all of the negative emotion he feels, and pushes it away. But, not away, rather just deep down inside of him.
Because of this, he doesnt feel it… But that doesnt mean its gone.
Over a great period of time, this emotion actually accumulated and took on its own entity. (Yeah, Ryo’s technically a Schitzo. XD)

So, Ryo has his normal happy personality… And now, this deep dark, somewhat evil personality which is an amalgamation of negative emotion.
During times of extreme emotion… (Great anger, or sadness… say, from someone close dying… Or fear, maybe if he’s about to die…) This alternate personality actually surges forth, and takes over.

Thus, Ryo transformes into the other dark… Oni Ryo. ^_^;;;

There are several differences… Most notably, the eyes. They’re almost catlike… They’re also yellow… but you cant see that here. XD
His hair grows longer. The bangs that only went to his eyes before, now actually fall to below his face… and the other, longer ones extend a bit more also. His hair in the back falls almost to his waist now, as well.
His clothes color also invert. Normally Ryo wears white with a touch of black… (If he’s in his traditional uniform, and not in casual clothes. =P)
Now, they turn black with a bit of white.
And the sword. The MASSIVE sword… (An original design of mine from 6 years ago… XD Modified to hugeness due to an obsesson of the time with Ruroni Kenshin (Sanosuke’s Zanbato) and Inuyasha (His Tetsuaiga).)
The Oni actually transforms Ryo’s bokken into this sword. And, despite it’s size… he swings it with great ease. =P

You’ll notice the large presence of the Yin Yang on Ryo’s clothes here… (On the cuffs, on the neck, and on the sword. Yes, it’s actually WITHIN a Triforce… Hey, I loved Zelda. XD)
Not to mention the blending of black and white on Ryo’s clothes… It’s all to symbolize the balance…
Black and white, Dark and light, Yin Yang, Good and Evil… You know the routine. =P
See, Ryo has this other, “evil” personality inside him… So, there is this kind of balance… And that’s why I like the use of the Yin Yang. =P

So… I guess that’s enough rambling…

I had issues with this drawing at first… I couldnt even get the damned sword right! (Course, it could be that I havent drawn it in over 2 years… AND I drew it with no reference. XD)
But, it came out quite nicely. I still have a few issues with the hand holding the sword… It’s a touch small.
The face came out great… but the bang on the left should have been closer. It was ment to actually fully cover the eye.
But, it worked out. And I’m very happy with it.

Lemme know what you think! ^_^

Luckily Ryo-Misaki avoids the common pitfall of making his anime character a blatant self-insert type. This can be seen in his-

Welp.

Welp.

At least he gets lots of exercise from his job at Applebee’s, right?

Don't worry, the man is still a slim 350lbs.

He also has a collection of pictures consisting of girls wearing cat ears, which is totally normal and not creepy at all.

J-Just put on this headband!

J-Just put on this headband!

Just do it! I AM RYO-MISAKI!

Just do it! I AM RYO-MISAKI!

At least he is quite stylish.

This bag will show people that I am not an obsessive person.
