Ranma and Ryoga by gem2niki Ranma and Ryoga by gem2niki
Before I head to bed for my next class in 4 hours...Ranma fanart!!

Sis was watching the boxsets I've bought from Amazon sale...and I ended up getting back into the series. Tho I never watched beyond Season 3 before! So mostly everything was new haha... Strange...I watched all the OAVs and movies earlier on. So now some new characters are showing up and now I'm finally figuring out who they are! Ryoga so darn cute!!!! :love:

I remember watching Ranma waaaay back in elementary.... 4th grade I think. My cousin introduced us to the movie which we watched so many times. My best friend-to-be shared the same interest and she would print out ranma pictures from the web. Which sorta introduced me to the existence of the internet I guess XD Ah good times~~

It sorta irritates me that young'uns are comparing Inuyasha to Ranma.... Ranma was first dammit!! And Sarah Strange was the first Eng voice actor for him!! Oh how I miss her voice... her voice created the Ranma I fell in love with~~

Ranma sorta fell apart for me when the voice changed... Anyways~~ watching it again, so refreshing. Nakajima Atsuko's older style is still pretty cute~

I rushed the coloring since I gotta sleep! Yikes. Maybe fix it later.

This is awesome I love this show soooo much!!! And well I guess it is better for people to compare Inuyasha to Ranma than to compare Ranma to Inuyasha (since Ranma was first and all) And I also loved his origional voice though I love Richard Cox's voice too... it took a bit to get used to his voice change. It was wierd.

Lissinater Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Awesome job!
A while back I got back into a Ranma kick. I never did finish reading the manga, and I never saw the anime either. Of course, back when I was fanatical about Ranma I hadn't yet discovered the pleasures of watching anime online.

I've never seen Inuyasha, but I will always stand by Ranma because it was the first manga I ever read. 8'D

aaahhhh!!! I friggen loooove this!!! >:3 goooo Ranma and Ryoga! you two kick ASS!!!
Ranryo82 Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2010  Student Traditional Artist
Hooray, someone who agrees! Sarah Strange was waaay better for Ranma; I HATE all the Youtube comments when I watch an episode or AMV:

Heyy, Ranma sounds like Inuyasha!!

LOL, Ranma and Inuyasha are from the same creator and the main protagonist share the same voice OMG! :D

Ooh, this new voice is WAYYY better than that man-woman Sarah Strange!

Did Ranma go through PUBERTY!!!!? O,O

gem2niki Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
haha yeah, youtube commenters are lame. bunch of ranma newbs.
illimonster Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2010
Ohhh, I know whatcha mean about the voice thing. Sarah's voice was like a perfect female version of male Ranma's, I thought... I was sad to hear it change too T_T

Ranma looks just a wee bit off to me here, but I think Ryoga came out supercrazyawesomelyperfect. I liek : D
gem2niki Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
haha this is the first time i've drawn ranma in soo long XD;; tho i think i've improved my ranma somewhat after more drawings :P

Yes! Her voice was invariably Ranma! She was a gorgeous voice actor--made him sound so simply sexy. I was so saddened by the change. T_T

Sorry, a bit late, but I just joined. I really really like your style!! Its not copied from the Manga or from the TV series. You really give mousse, ryoga and ranma a new individual character like this. Go on, show us some more pictures, please

Ryoga looks so cute here!
Makes me wonder if I really should sell my Ranma 1/2 on eBay. . .

Oh well. I need money Y-Y
Saruke Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2009  Professional General Artist
Makes me feel so nostalgic :heart: *goes to watch old eps* haha x3 Ryouga has always been my fav.

I love how you protraied the characters, I specially like the coloring and their hair xD omg their hair, looks so soft and fluffy.
Andichan04 Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2009  Professional General Artist
cuuute! ryoga was always my favorite. :love:

me and my friends also did the internet-printing-out-pictures thing. my best friend and I wanted nothing more than our own colour ink cartridge b/c our parents said it was too expensive to print out in colour. XD

yeah, I get irritated about the whole inu yasha/ranma thing as well..D:
lavilena Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2009
Ranma ½ Was one of my first animes and I love it! :la:
And now I realize haw much I miss that serie...
chibi-flute Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2009
haha i've been rereading the manga for months now.. it just never gets old! :]
Urd-chan Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2009
I really, REALLY like how Ryouga turned out here. I'm loving all the Ranma art you've been posting lately and it's got me in the mood to watch the series again.
cocodesbois Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I won't say how much I love the anime, but I do enjoy this one soooo much !
What a great personality you give them !!!
Keep on the excellent work

And the decoration on the back, so nice yet very simple !

Ranma x Ryouga! :love:

Funnily enough... when my friend was first starting to get me addicted to anime she tried with this... but I was still a noob and the first episode that I saw had Happosai in it and the old dude creeped me out so much that I stopped watching it and never went back until much later... hahaha. Which reminds me... have you ever seen Fushigi Yuugi (was the successful anime that my friend first got me addicted to)? It equals much :heart:~ 'Specially Tasuki, Noriko, and Chichiri... gotta love pretty boy harems~ And I'm sure it's right up your alley since we like alot of the same stuff... XD

Anyways... I think their hands turned out awesome in this pic. *so jealous* ... *noms on hands* =w=... And you're right Sarah Strange was the best Ranma... what's funny is that I'm kinda a subtitle-elitist, but honestly, I prefer Ranma in English. Ryouga sounds so weird in Japanese with a deep, non-squeaky voice... XD

gem2niki Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
I did watch Fushigi Yuugi back then! And we bought most of the vhs...but ended up stop buying the the second to the last we never actually finished it haha... also we got quite annoyed at Tamahome and Miaka's call to each other. "Tamahome~~!!" "Miaka!!" "Tamahome~~!!" "Miaka!!" OMG soo annnoying!! But I did love Nuriko and Tatsuki! (such a bish~)

Woo okay that was ranty. Yeah, I think Ranma dubbed was actually good compared to a lot of dub anime. They really capture the characters personality XD;; And Kuno's VA perfectly capture the idiocy of that man. haha.

Ranma's swinging ponytail is a nice touch

oishi Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2009
Aw, this takes me back. Ryoga has always been one of my favorite anime characters of all time. So hopeless, but still so cute. This is awesome.
OokamiCat Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2009
Ranma½ Is my favorite manga among them all!

I can watch and read it over and over again and still laugh at the same jokes xD But I think it's sad that they never came longer with the anime. Many great characters like Herb, Akari, Konatsu, Saffron and many others would I love to see animated. Oh well...8(

I never liked to watch Ranma½ dubbed, but I must admit that Sarah Strange did a very good job on portraying Male Ranma!

And about your picture. Both Ranma and Ryoga(who is my fav character from there) looks really smexy!
And I like how you make there hair shine and the backround is simple, but it's very Ranma½-stylish! xD Dosen't have to be so much!

Good work! I really like it!
