-Fake- by starlightdevil -Fake- by starlightdevil
My first drawing of 2011 XD
So i was introduced to this BL manga called -FAKE- (this being the first BL manga i have read) and ooooooooohh I loved it soo much I couldn't resist drawing a fanart of it!

Characters: Dee Laytner (left) and Randy 'Ryo' McLean (right) from the manga -Fake- by Sanami Matoh.

Yay, FAKE fanart!  :love: I just finished reading the series (yeah, I'm late), including what is available of the second season, and am now in dire need of more more more, so your drawing made me really happy! I think you captured Dee's and Ryo's respective personalities masterfully, and your drawing style fits them very well. It's nice that your piece pictures the two of them in their working environment, because their police work is a big part of the plot, which is part of why I like the series so much. Is there anything better than the combination of romance and murder mysteries? ;)
Thank you for sharing your art! You made my day. :D

I'm so glad that there's still some new FAKE fanart out there! :) And this one turned out really nice. Haha, I wonder what Dee is pissed about this time... ;D

FAKE artists, they DO still exist! Oh, I have been in love with this series for such a long time now... since like grade 10... and that was almost 9 years ago now O.o To this day Dee and Ryo remain one of my favourite BL couples, they're just so perfect together. Now, to like kick my gushing aside and give you a REAL comment ^^;

This looks AWESOME! It's neat to see an image of Dee and Ryo in the workspace with their casual personalities showing through for once. I mean, don't get me wrong, I ADORE romance, but the originality of this is something to be marveled at. I really like the fact that you managed to capture their personalities so well, that just irritated look on Dee, and calm, but amused look about Ryo, too wonderful! Lovely use of colours as well, I really like how soft they are, it really just adds this gentle and calm look to the image, I really like it. I also think the use of "split screen" is neat for this as well, they're separate, but connected, you know? Either way, it comes together very nicely and I am really happy to see NEW art for FAKE out there. In fact seeing this makes me wonder why I've never bothered with FAKE fan art of my own :S

First off, THANK you for the lovely comment! Ive been thinking for days on how to reply in a way to show you my appreciation, but alas, im at a loss of words at your sincere joy of viewing my drawing! So, thank you again! Im sooo happy to know you liked it! I was afraid they both would look off since I cannot draw in the original style FAKE has been drawn in! So I tried to capture their essence through their expressions! Dee was easy, XD I had trouble with thinking of what kind of expression Ryo should have, but im happy that it turned out good! >w<
I'll be drawing more of these two when i get free time! The manga was fun to read, I can understand why till this day these two are your fav couple, I like them a lot as well! 8D
Thanks again for the kind words! <3

I am not too worried about people drawing in the "original style" of the creator, as long as the pure love for the pairing or series shines through, and it did here. I can imagine that drawing an expression for Dee would be most simple if only because he wears his heart on his sleeve and is never afraid to show what he's feeling at any given time XD. Ryo might be a little more difficult yes, but this works because he often does have that little smirk about him when it comes to Dee's out bursts, kind of like he's saying, "oh typical Dee." *giggle*
It's good to hear you'll be drawing more of these two when you get the time. It's hard not to love Dee and Ryo! They just work together ^_~
You're welcome as well by the way, I am always happy to encourage those who put such lovely effort into a piece <3

Oh man! I love FAKE so MUCH! :heart:
For me FAKE is a perfect example of a BL that has good characters and a PLOT! *gasp* Unlike a lot of BL that's all about the smex =__=;;

EXACTLY!!! Thats exactly what I loved about the manga, that it was more about building a relationship on trust and love rather than giving into lust.

Gah! Makes me so happy to hear someone say this! ;___;
I'm quite tired of BL's where it's all about sex and lust all the time.
Now relationship whatsoever... and just like you said, that's one of the reasons FAKE is so good :D
That's the reason why I like to have pairings in shounen-series, cause there's usually some kind of plot there.
