In the last pic here, is that supposed to be Yohji on the top right?

I've always assumed so! But when she does those 'realistic' style pictures they always look really ambiguous to me, so I can't say yes with confidence, heh. ^__^;;;;

I'm pretty certain that's Yohji though. It's the other two pictures...I suspect one is supposed to be Ken (the one laying down) and one Omi (the one with the hat)...but they both always looked to me like they were supposed to be Ken...yet didn't actually look like Ken. If that makes any sense.

Kyoko Tsuchiya is confusing though. For *years* I thought the images of her Black Matrix video game designs were the Weiss boys just in random AU illustrations. I don't know why she mixes them into her Weiss illustration books.

I assumed it was Yohji, too, and going with that, can I just say HOT DAMN!

I had to look up Black Matrix. Aren't they girls? I couldn't tell!

I didn't even think twice about the one with the hat. I assumed that was Omi, but yeah, it could be either. I figure the eyes are different though, and his is wider than Ken's. They should be captioned in ENGLISH!

I know hardly anything at all about Black Matrix...just that I had these images of characters in a book that was labeled as Weiss, looked suspiciously like the Weiss character designs and drawn by the manga artist. So for a long time I thought they were just really strange and random Weiss illustrations. The pictures are in the 'Soul Driver' books too, and there they are actually labeled as being video game designs. But the first book I found them in had no labels whatsoever so it took me a while to figure it out. When I had a name to place to them I looked them up but other than googling it I don't know much. But there is a girl with demon wings that looks an awful lot like Aya-chan to me. And there is (what looks like to me) a guy with angel wings that I think looks a heck of a lot like Ran. There is also random characters that I think look like Ken, Farf, and Tot of all things. I don't know if they are just ambiguous girls or not? Some of the pics look pretty guy-like to me... I think maybe just the playable characters are girls but there are also guys in the story? Maybe? Thats just my guess. I'd love to know more about it.

I was going to scan these pictures eventually too, but they'll take me a long time to get through those books so I figured I'd get through some doujinshi first.

Anyway as for the ambiguous Weiss drawings... I definitely think that is supposed to be Omi...but in the colored version of that picture his hair is very brown, so for a while my mind just automatically interpreted it as Ken. Which is silly since there is NO reason to expect the manga drawings to have consistent hair colors, heh.

When I looked up Black Matrix, I didn't find much, but that might be me. So I don't know if I saw all the characters or not. I did notice that some of the characters did look like the WK boys.

color vs the sketches? I missed that. Going back to look again. I am so out of it!

From: [identity profile] yotan.livejournal.com


Oh no, you're not out of it at all. I didn't post the colored version. It's in the manga, which has been posted a lot more on the internet than this, so I figured most people had seen everything in it already. Sorry for assuming!!!

I can scan it tonight if you'd like to see it!

From: [identity profile] f-mystic.livejournal.com


Manga? You mean An Assassin and White Shaman? I looked a while back, but couldn't find anything. Of course, then, I may not be looking in the right places. I wanted a copy of my own, but couldn't find one then, either. Maybe I should look again.

From: [identity profile] yotan.livejournal.com


Yeah, both volumes of the Assassin and White Shaman manga have a colored section of random illustrations before you get to the black and white comic part. Where you looked at it probably only bothered to scan the story… I’ll happily scan any bit you want…but tonight I won’t have time to do more than one or two pages. I’ll do that specific one though for sure.

Honestly, I couldn't find anything except mention of it. It was really rather depressing. I'd love to see that one pic, if you have the time. What you've already scanned will keep me busy for years!

See? I don't find him very Omi-like in color! Aside from the brown hair his eyes are greenish. And he's apparently noshing on Ken's mission shirt....

From: [identity profile] f-mystic.livejournal.com


Okay, that is odd. In color, he looks like the two of them morphed together. The upper one looks more like Yohji in color than the b&w, but I like the b&w. Thanks for scanning them!

From: [identity profile] yotan.livejournal.com


Glad you enjoyed it!

I have a LOT more of stuff like this I've been intending to post. I need to start catching up on some scanning....
