Artist Comment

Well! Something simple (argh~ again!) ^_^' Due to a friend lending me the Prince of Tennis anime, an obsession has sprung. Shishido Ryou and Taki Haginosuke (links lead to their fanlistings)-- members of the Hyoutei Gakuen tennis club. And both, I'd seriously imagine, the type to exchange haircare tips in the lockeroom...

Well, Shishido we know for a fact = prettyboi. Taki... well, he looks the part. That pose (which i sort of tried to copy.. it's weird with stubby arms..), and his fanlisting convinced me. :nya: Plus, I've personally never seen a Taki fanart yet (though these chibis hardly count towards a remedy for that). So. Placed with Shishido...

Who is touching his hair, of course. I wonder if he'd be smiling if he knew what would happen to it. And I wonder if Taki would be standing so close if he knew he was going to be so soundly embarrassed by the guy...

Arty Facts:
- Despite all visual implications, this took me about four hours to sketch and ink up, and a futher three to colour. :sweat: But I'm definitely getting faster, I think. Dieter's lineart sketch alone took seven hours last time... guh.
- The usual 2H pencil > fineliner > scan > Photoshop's polygonal lasso.
- I actually liked my writing this time around. XD And so left it in. Hence, the text looks boring.
- There are more of these planned (sweet doubles, feel the beat, and silly strongmen) if I can pull them off. *fingers crossed*
- Zomg, I type too much.

    I always find the "chibi" to be adorable. This one is very enjoyable. When you place the character as themselves, it always good. I really do love the detail you show in clothing shadow. It really does help the image. And the text seems to fit the over all look, great work. Cant wait to see more.

    They look fairly confindent in themselves XD . I think you managed to give these little guys a lot of character :) . I wonder though ... if they are both so arrogant wouldn't they fight a lot XP . Your drawing makes me want to go see what the anime is about now ... so yay for you :) .

  12. Shaka Jan 13, 2005

  13. RamzaSedai Jan 13, 2005

    I love the PoT chibis, and you've done them proud. Very nice work. Keep it up!

  14. walkure245 Jan 14, 2005

    Kawaii chibis! >_< I love their cute outfits and their expressions. Nicely done~ But they aren't my favs on the team. You should do one with Oshitari and Atobe. That would be sweet~ ^_^

    Pretty funky - the drawing reminds me of the animation made by Genndy Tartakovsky - the person who is behind Clone Wars and Dexter's Laboratory.

  21. animefreak222 Jul 25, 2005
