Hakuouki: Todou Heisuke by behindinfinity Hakuouki: Todou Heisuke by behindinfinity
:bulletyellow: About the photo
This is a portrait of the captain of the 8th squad, Todou Heisuke in his Western military outfit as depicted in Hakuouki Shinsengumi Kitan. It is a continuation of my experiments to do cosplay portraits mixed with illustrated elements. I've provided thumbnails at the bottom of the description for more examples. :)

:bulletyellow: About the shoot
First time shooting with Hannah ~Hana181 even though we've known each other forever. (Our whole families are friends with each other.) We just never cosplayed characters from the same series before. Hakuouki was actually just a coincidence, which is why she's in the Western outfit while the rest of us did the traditional Shinsengumi. ^^; We'll do something about that later on!

Some of you might recognize this pose from the game art/character sheets. Heisuke's got a bit of a funny, open-mouthed smirk in that illustration, which Hannah had some trouble copying. The solution? The other Shinsengumi and the rest of the team danced behind me as I was taking this photo, to get our little Heisuke to laugh. :lol:

That aside, she poses so well! It's just amusing how she kept making whimpering puppy noises when I put eyeliner on her. I put on her eyeliner, drew on those lines on the lower corners of the eyes, and gave her angry boy eyebrows. :fuzzydemon: I'm aware that in the official artworks, it almost looks like half of Heisuke's brows had been shaved off, but Hannah's mom might kill me if I did that. :laughing: I went for a more 'realistic' approach and gave the young captain some boyish eyebrows.

The pure epic-ness of this picture is flowing out of my computer and making a mess everywhere! :doh:

The background... do you take the picture on a white background then somehow put the picture in?

This is so nice! I love the way it's made like an illustration, it's a very nice idea (: And the pose is just so awesome! Her cosplay is really done well and I can practically feel the character radiating off her through my computer screen (: Would you mind if I used this pose for a drawing? I'll give credit (:

Usually I'm not a huge fan of copy/paste posing, since most of it comes out looking pretty dead and lifeless, but this shot really has a beautiful energy and life to it! And I do love the backgrounds you're putting on this series :heart: Wonderful~
