old school Dir en grey by pink-KILLER old school Dir en grey by pink-KILLER
A group drawing of one of my favorite bands ever, Dir en grey. This is their 'old school' look, but I thought it was pretty rad back in 2001 when I drew this (and I still think it's quite groovy!) Lesse, from left to right there's Kaoru (guitar), Toshiya (bass), Kyo (vocals), Die (guitar) and Shinya (drums). This was my first attempt at a realism group shot!!

I wish Kaoru never changed his purple hair. He looks so fantastically hot back then. *drools on Toshiya x Kaoru pics* Now he looks old. Ugh, what's with the blonde hair, dang it!

They may say 'old school' but I loved that look. Great job on the picture!
