Nana Komatsu & Osaki Cosplay

Originally a shōjo manga by mangaka Ai Yazawa, The manga derives its title from the name of the two main characters, both of whom are called Nana. What sets them apart, however, is the stark difference between their personalities. Nana Komatsu (aka Haichi) has a childlike innocence and tends to lose touch with reality, while the other Nana Osaki is a strong, self-confident singer in a punk band.

Cosplayers are Kaori and Hinata from Taiwan.

Elderly would like to thank Kawaii Princess Poine, who manages one of the classiest personal blogs your likely to see. Take a visit leave a comment, and do, if you do nothing else this evening, check out her extraordinary taste in music.

3d Cosplay Poison

Character from the Video game series Final Fight. The most difficult part was finding a hat prop and realising that hats don't squash 3d hair. Accepting the idea that Poison is a newhalf, is probably never going to happen.

Fantasy Artist "Angel"

Rendered Beauty is proud to showcase the talent of "Angel", a young aspiring artist who has had a passion for drawing for as long as he can remember. Having never attended any form of art education, Angel he is completely self thought, garnering his skills from life experience and fleeting impressions.

Currently best known for his Gothic character art, with a noticeable manga element, his style is truly original, incorporating elements from a wide range of art forms. Angel's favourite characters are Guts from the Berserk manga, Ashram from Lodoss, Vlad "The Impaler" and Dracula. According to his agent, his greatest flaw, indeed if one exists, appears to be a total lack of patience leading to a frightening 14 min average in drawing time.

I would like to thank Angel and Nikolas for giving me permission to display his work. Rendered Beauty will be featuring some more of Angel's work at a later stage, till then head over to the "Court of Sir Nikolas" where Nikolas is preparing another selection of Angel's talent.
