I've met you somewhere before by eikomakimachi I've met you somewhere before by eikomakimachi
This is a slightly Alternate Universe pic, kinda like "What if...". I drew this thinking about this: What if Kenshin had met a lost Souji Okita when he was a child in the middle of a road before the incident that made him met with Hiko? Well, they would probably have become friends for a while, while Kenshin tried to show Okita the right way XD.

Those two character have similar personalities, so I think that if they weren't enemies in war, they would probably become good friends. Based on this idea, I drew this pic for *hakubaikou's contest, "Friends & Enemies ".

My original idea was to draw Saitou and Kenshin after the Jinchuu saga, but I think everyone thought about Saitou. Then I wanted to draw Sanosuke fighting with Kenshin with his zanbatou, but Sanosuke doesn't have that "enemy" tag at all. I ended up drawing Souji Okita with Kenshin, representing the Shinsengumi. Like Kenshin said in the mangá, he and the Shinsengumi shared the same ideals and they only were enemies because of the war context.

Okay, enough of explanation XD. And I know, my Souji Okita is way too bishy... but I think he is good enough for a first attempt. I've never drawn anyone from Shinsengumi before.

o.o hun, I think that it is a little impossble, because Okita Souji (The Historical Character) traveled to Kyoto only until 1863, and Kenshin was already Hitokiri Battousai in that moment, but is a a ok alternative scene xD I Like it.

Please read my comment below the picture next time, for I really am tired of people simply ignoring what I write on it and asking/pointing things that I've already explained. I am aware that historically this event is impossible, the fact that the scene is AU was due to the contest's theme.

that's adorable! I love Souji's expression :) There's no way to draw him "too bishy", he always looks good!

Muito obrigada ^_^. Eu acho que cenas do cotidiano podem ser bonitas, apesar de muitas pessoas não gostarem de retratar isso por acharem "comum demais".

De nada =) mas na verdade essa eh a beleza, o cotidiano nos traz tantas opzons do q fazer ou mostrar, eh muito melhor q tentar pensar em algo mirabolante e ainda assim non obter o sucesso desejado =)

Hah! I knew it! I knew that kid was Okita Shoji!!!

I had seen this pic on Hakubaiko and was puzzling over the other character. But now I know I'm right!! Cool pic! It's really cute! I'll check the rest of your gallery and see if there are more RK pics.

RK is my fav!!! ^_^

This is such a precious idea. ^__^ Okita is generally very friendly when he's not beating people up, so I'll bet they'd get along very well. Their expressions work so well to tell the story, and I like how well you pulled them out against the BG. Speaking of, the BG is so pleasing and peaceful to look at. ^^

Bom, naum chega a ser um crossover, jah q o Souji Okita chega a aparecer no mangá de Rurouni Kenshin, quando o Kenshin conta suas reminiscências. O Kenshin, no original, só conhece Okita quando já é um hitokiri, mas eu pensei q seria legal se eles tivessem se encontrado antes. Fazia um tempinho q eu naum mexia com aquarela, entaum eu fiquei pintando esse desenho e o do Yue ao mesmo tempo para naum cansar. No final eu gostei mais deste msm.
