XD
Fan art based off a fan art? That's interesting.

I know-it looks that way because between it, it said "taking...taking good care of me" but when I uploaded it, the "..." became unnoticeable for some strange reason. I thought about editing it back in, but I don't really have much time for it (considering my laptop loads pretty slowly) so I left it.

Triple post? Did you have some submitting problems StrateryB? D: (or it's possible that things are loading strangely for me)

"Some reason" being Io Saotome being inconsiderate enough to make a post telling you about the triple post, and in so doing being the last poster, which removes your ability to delete the post.

Forcing me to do it.

Oh, so that's how it works. Thanks.

First attempt at trying to clean up an image, I kind of killed some of the lines.

Chibis of the characters from the project I'm doing with Gardenia and Meliona. I'm not going to do the rest of the cast because I really don't have time for them, so it's only the male lead and females. Their ears are bugging me so badly, but it's too late to fix them, and there are a ton of errors, but meh....

Oops, sorry about that. Not used to that problem. OTL And, please, call me Io, it's just easier. (And doesn't sound like you're saying my full name all the time, which is just creepy).

@StrateryB: Cute chibis. The one with the pink-yellow hair reminds me of Sheryl from MacrossF, her hair was done in a similar fashion. Chibis are one of the things that still eludes me art-wise.

Thank you. I think Chibis are pretty hard...just because you want them to look cute you know?

Haha, do what you want. It would be interesting to see where you go with it.

The axe on the top left chibi seems... off somehow. Too long in the blade and not long enough in the haft, maybe.

Hit it one the spot... Just make the shaft a little longer and you'll be fine... "if you know what I mean".

Oh, I see it. Thanks for pointing that out.

I'll remember that Lugger.

This was taken at an angle, so it may seem a bit off (you can see my orange folder there...).

Based on a true story.

When Meliona created one of the characters from our collaboration project, Sulin, for some strange reason I called him "Sunil". I continued to do so for two weeks until Gardenia finally told me his name was "Sulin". Of course, we didn't have the same reaction as Alastor (main male) and Agnese (female) but I thought it would be more humorous to replace ourselves with them. Alastor is obviously me and Agnese is Gardenia.

Image

Also taken at an angle. Pffftt, I'm sorry I use a camera for everything...

I realized we haven't elaborated on the romantic relationship between these two, Elisabet and Normin, so I decided to just sketch something up real quick. Elisabet is a yandere-when the story was meant to be more serious I thought it might be interesting, but when we decided to take a more comedic turn, her yandere personality seemed to still work in a comedic sense so I kept it. So you get the point of what's going on (although it is rather hard to tell what's happening huh?).

Normin was the male with the long red hair from the group picture, Meliona re-designed him because she became very uncomfortable with the number of "He looks like a girl" comments (although he was meant to be the pretty type...).

I have a tendency to go over my lines in red, so sorry if things are hard to see.

And-although I didn't draw this-Gardenia asked me to put it up
Image

She did this picture on the male lead Alastor and Sulin, Alastor was designed by me and Sulin was designed by Meliona.
I find it kind of interesting how differently we all draw Alastor, but out of the three of us, Gardenia draws him exactly how I want him to be.

Try to keep all of the text within the same size if you're planning to write all of it by hand.
Also, it'll be nice if you can keep the text evenly spaced within the speech bubbles.

Alastor's left fist looks flat.
