First "Destination" Drawing

As I was reorganizing my art files, I came across this:

This is my first-ever destination drawing. I drew it all the way back in 2003. I remember starting the picture just before my senior year of high school. I don't remember when I finished it, but the date displayed on the drawing was when I did.

The drawing features Keba, Jon, Rakusa, and an unnamed character. I don't think any of them are the correct size in relation to each other.

I;'m pretty sure I haven't drawn the unnamed character since. His role in the story has remained the same, but his appearance has changed a lot in my mind. I won't reveal his role because I don't want you associating the image with him.

Now that I think about it, I haven't been able to settle on a hairstyle for my character, Keba. I think I might go back to something like the one here.

Keba's Debut

Ladies and gentlemen and everyone in between, I present to you my first-ever drawing of my character, Keba.

I know I talked a lot about Keba's origin as an Inuyasha fan character. Her purpose in life was originally to annoy the heck out of Inuyasha and, well, annoy the heck out of just about everyone else. (Just wait until I post the picture of her trying to run Jaken over with a car.) Needless to say, she has evolved a great deal, but she's taken many, many different forms along the way. And I don't mean that in a shape-shifting fox demon kind of way.

This was dated 1-23-02 so this drawing is nearly 15 years old. @_@ Dang, that feels like a long time ago.

You might notice some writing on the back of the picture. I entered it into an art contest that my high school anime club was hosting. Didn't win, though. Too bad; I don't think they hosted any more art contests while I was there.
