Akogare no Hito by Anael08 Akogare no Hito by Anael08
"I want to become better... so that one day in the future, I will be able to act on equal footing with this man..."

-----

The title "Akogare no Hito" ( 憧れの人 ) basically means "The One I Look Up To" (or in plainer words: a person that one really admires).

In this scene of Nakamura Yoshiki-sensei's "Skip Beat!" manga, Mogami Kyoko discovers for the first time, a goal that is not related to her childhood friend, and decides to pursue it in order to become someone of equal ability to her senior, Tsuruga Ren. Though the two didn't really get along in the beginning, their respect for each others' professionalism and ability helps bring them closer together later on in the story.

I rather like this pairing and can't wait to see their relationship continue to bloom in the manga ^_^. I love Ren x Kyoko and I hope things work out well for them (*^_^*).

Anyway... I actually colored this image two years ago to make a desktop wallpaper for myself, but I had Kyoko wear a blue kimono since I didn't know what color it would be. However, after watching the recent two episodes, I now know what the colors should be and so I decided to go back and try coloring the image again ^_^. It's not perfect by any means, but I can say that I like it much better than the version I did two years ago.

(My goodness... O_O... 1000+ hits in just one day)

Love it--Kyoko is one of my favorite girl characters ever. Strong, spirited, and determined. I hope she ends up with Ren--I hate Sho.

Wow...amazing...
I love how Ren's hair has a reddish cast to it. Matches Kyoko-chan's kimono.

Really good job of capturing Kyoko's "looking up" to Ren.

By the way, is your avatar from the manga "Wanted"??

Thanks! Sorry for the late reply, it's been a while since I've logged on.

As for my Avatar, yes it is from Wanted ^__~ I love that short series, and Hino Matsuri is one of my fave mangaka. I idolize her work.
