Since you have done a decent job at the Tenjouin Girls in Azumanga Daioh fashion, I was thinking you should maybe draw (how you would draw them instead of on the computer unlike the previous) the Azumanga Daioh spin-offs. When you have the time to do them.
Hm ... You mean traditionally? All of the fan art I've submitted on deviantART has been traditional (at least mostly), and I guess you can tell that's the art form I'm the most comfortable with. I don't even own a tablet which explains why the image of the Tenjouin Girls looks worse, as it is much more difficult to control brush strokes drawn with a mouse ... And it would have looked better if I drew it with a pencil.
Right now I'm very preoccupied with a big art project for school, consisting of making four paintings, which is taking up a lot of my time.
How specific does it need to be? l can see why image titles consisting of only random letters and digits should be changed, but when I do rename images, they are often at least loosely related to the content. For example, this file is named "Usoya" because that's what Osaka says in the original Japanese version (I often do this to make sure the images do not have the same title).
Since you have done your own fanart of Kiyohiko Azuma's creations on Deviantart, I was thinking that I can at least help you with some ideas in case you are running out of some or when you want me to give you the ideas at anytime. But only on Kiyohiko Azuma's creations.
Cool, thanks! ^^ I'm currently working on a newer version of a drawing I did of Sakaki. I hope to upload it soon. I don't have a lot of time to draw though since I'm supposed to work with a really big art project for school for the next few months.
One thing that keeps poping in my mind all the time about Chiyo Chan's classmates "Miruchi & Yuka" are not just their resemblance to Minamo and Yukari, but also their friendship reminds me of both T.K (Takeru) & Kari (Hikari) from Digimon Adventure 01. I don't knw why but that's me.
Hmm, to be honest I don't know much about the characters you mentioned. But yes, Miruchi and Yuka do resemble the teachers. Only in appearance though, I guess. Yuka for example seems pretty shy, not like Yukari at all! xD But her hairstyle (before she cut it) looks a lot like Yukari's. I really wonder what Yukari and Nyamo were like in high school, it would be fun to see some stories about that. Yukari was exactly the same of course, but it's still not entirely obvious what she was like as a student compared to how she is as a teacher. Did she slack off when she was supposed to study, like Tomo? Did she get good grades? (Supposedly in English, at least.) It seems as though Miruchi and Yuka are supposed to look like Minamo and Yukari, and Tomo and Yomi are supposed to act like them.
Since after you have sent me your decent design of the The Tenjouin Girls from To Love-Ru, did you ever imagined any other anime characters also designed in Azumanga Daioh themed design? I have, like both Takeru (T.K.) & Hikari (Kari) from Digimon Adventure 01. Because I thought about them in their own series of segments (playing with an anime featuring Chiyo Chan, and her elementary classmates Miruchi & Yuka) where they are 5 or 6 year old kids going on mis-adventures with their Digimon Patamon and Gotomon (Tailmon in japanese). And since they would be 5 or 6 year old kids, they would wear different cloths (more like from the Digimon movie here) unlike in the Digimon Adventure series.
Not really ... I don't watch that much anime. I've read much more manga but there are few series that I really like. I have been studying Azuma's art style pretty closely though since I draw my own fan art from time to time, trying to figure out what sets character designs apart etc. For example when he draws old people he does it much more detailed than when he draws kids. There are two main eye shapes – the round one is the default (most of the characters have this eye shape, like Chiyo, Osaka, Tomo, Yomi, Yukari and Nyamo) and a pointy one (like Sakaki and Kagura has). Taller, mature-looking characters often have more defined noses and smaller eyes, like Sakaki or Yomi. I try to figure out the basics of all drawing styles I use when I draw that are not my own, then just try to apply it to other characters by imagining which features would suit them best.
I was wondering if you are still going to take a class about drawing on a computer software in college. Because I would love to see your own Azumanga Daioh Themed Character Design creations. And if you are, remember to take my only request to make Azumanga Daioh versions of The Tenjouin Girls (Saki, Rin, & Aya) from "To Love-Ru" and to send to me so I can add it to my Azumanga Daioh album collection on Facebook.
Sure! I was thinking about doing it soon. But please give me credit!
Well, the class is not all about drawing, it's about creating homepages and stuff too. It's really got nothing to do with work since I'm only in my last year of high school. I'm not sure what to work with yet or what to do when I do go to college. I mostly do this kind of stuff during my free time.
I have seen bits and pieces of To Love-Ru with the 3 Tenjouin Girls from the anime and I was thinking of them as the main antagonists of the main characters Sakaki, Kaorin, Chiyo Chan, and Osaka in the Azumanga Daioh spin-off "Sakaki & Kaorin". They would either try to beat them in competitions or races by cheating, try to kill them for revenge, or either force them to wear sexy clothes (like they do in To Love-Ru). Do you think they would fit as villians in an Azumanga Daioh spin-off?
Here's how they look (Saki has blond hair, Rin's hair is brown, and Aya's is blue):
And my own custom version where they're wearing the high school uniforms from Azumanga Daioh:
Just want to add it to my Facebook on my Azumanga Daioh/Sakaki & Kaorin photos collection. And I will get into drawing on computers someday since I'm starting to get into learning how to do 2D animation on computers in college (I'm finishing college soon and I'm planning to go to a university to learn more about doing 2D animation on computers).
Since I posted a topic forum on the idea of Azumanga Daioh spin-offs, 2 that I haven't talk about (which I won't post n the forum because it includes other animes besides Azumanga Daioh) are a new japanese animation studio that should be made called Azumanga Animation, and new theatrical anime shorts played with anime movies and japanese live action movies in Japan (in america, they would only play at anime events and some selected theaters for screening).
Click on the links for information on my Facebook.
Sounds pretty cool. You're very creative! Though isn't there already a studio for "Azumanga animation" (or at least something similar)? Why is the logo Kaorin?
What I would want the most is the Yotsuba anime. It will never be as good as the manga, but I still always find it interesting to watch anime adaptions. Though I think it might be good if it were made by another crew than the Azumanga Daioh anime was made by, because I don't think that style would fit Yotsuba. I would even like to be INVOLVED in the anime, because I think I know which approach that should be taken. Kind of slow tempo, sometimes background music, cut NOTHING from the manga and make (nearly) everything happen in the same order, go for the same kind of mood and animation style as in My Neighbor Totoro. It might not turn out to be the most popular anime ever but I sure would enjoy it tremendously. I love that kind of stories, you know, nothing special really happens, but they're humorous, heartful and put you in a good mood. The reason I think so little should be changed is that Azuma said one of the reasons he didn't want an anime is that a lot would have to be cut. But I wonder if it really would be necessary. I mean, if I were in charge, I wouldn't cut anything!
Also. Isn't there already anime shows for Lucky Star and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya? Are you thinking remakes?
The main reason why Kaorin is the mascot of the logo is because of the Azumanga Daioh spin-off "Sakaki & Kaorin" would be the first made by the company (also Kaorin is my personal favorite Azumanga Daioh character). But don't worry, Chiyo Chan is only the 2nd mascot of the logo too.
And animes like Haruhi Suzumiya and Lucky Star would have new seasons and episodes made by the company besides Kyoto Animation (same goes with using the Digimon characters from Toei Animation, and making To Love-Ru movies for Xebec).
Oh, OK. I see. Chiyo, Chiyo's dad or Neco Coneco could probably work as mascots too because of their iconic looks.
You know, you could post the Yotsuba idea in the forum too since this is a Yotsuba&! wiki too. Most of the people who have voted in the poll seem to support the idea of making an anime adaption ... Just, if they would make an anime, I think they should be careful and think it through properly so they don't destroy it. But even if it sucked, it would be good publicity for the manga and series in general, which I think it deserves.
Sorry. Do you mean on the episode pages? I only removed them because there were no headers on the other pages. But I'll fix it. Better put them back and place the pages in the stub category so that it catches people's attention. The newer episode pages didn't have any headers to begin with. I removed them from the first episode pages.
Cool! :D Kind of strange that no one has posted in the forum before ... Btw thanks again for creating "Kimura's Wife". I had planned to do it because hardly anything seemed to happen here, but then I went on holiday for a week, and I was really surprised to see that there had been so much activity while I was away XD
You're welcome. I was disappointed about this forum being incomplete myself, and not only it needed a Kimura's Wife page but also it needed more galleries and screenshots for each character. And as you cand tell from the spin-offs I made up, my favorites are Sakaki, Kaorin, Chiyo Chan, Osaka, Chihiro, Miruchi & Yuka, Yukari, Nyamo, Mr. Kimura, Kimura's Wife (if Kimura's Daughter did had an apperance besides being in a photo, I would like her too), and the other supporting background characters.
