I wonder if there's any information on these 2 guys here, I know they were responsible for the sound effects. Eiko also did the sound effects for The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Lucky Star, Negima! (2005 anime), and Kanon (2006 anime).
The reason for this is because one of them Eiko is my favorite since he was more serious on the sound effects in most anime series and films. Not like most of the others or like Hiromune Kurahashi who always used Hanna-Barbera sound effects in animes like Girls Bravo, Shuffle!, and DN Angel.
I don't really like the H-B SFX that much since they irritate me (especially that falling object whistle I hate with a passion).
Remember these 2 background characters from Azumanga Daioh?
They would be Chihiro's servants and helpers in Sakaki & Kaorin. Where they would be in charge of cleaning, guarding the club and setting up things. Because of this, they also go to Chiyo Chan or Sakaki and Kaorin's summer trips with Chihiro.
I'd say J.C.Staff since they made the anime in the first place, but if it's the English versions of the DVDs, then sure, put them on the ADV Films page. It's standard for anime shows to be released on DVD so it probably doesn't count as merchandise.
Sorry for the incorrect spelling on Thinpak and individual. Thinpak was spelled with a k in between n and p on Amazon for some reason. And I must of spelled individual wrong at first while finding online how to spell it correctly.
Really nice! I think Rin looks a bit like Kagura there. And it seems to work style-wise. They look pretty young though (especially Aya), was that on purpose?
Just so you know, when I drew the characters, I didn't try to make it look like the style of the anime. Rather, it was inspired by Azuma's current drawing style which is why their eyes are smaller, there are fewer details and the colouring is flat. I think the anime is based on his drawing style from when he made volume 2 or something and since then it's turned more minimalistic, you can see that in the later Yotsuba&! volumes. (I know you haven't read them, but perhaps you've seen pictures from them.)
The reason some may look young is because I only used Chiyo Chan's face to do this. Since it was easier to edit. The others are kind of hard since there are some that are difficult to remove their long hairs as well as redrawing the ears.
That's the only thing I would like help on, making teenage or adult Azumanga Daioh girls.
Oh, OK. That may be easier to do in Photoshop, if you ever get it or anything similar. Then you could use Chiyo as a base but paste the older characters' facial features onto the picture. Another way would be to resize the eyes and change their position in the face (possibly the nose and mouth as well). I'm pretty sure there are other programmes where you can do this that are free.
That's true, but I don't think it's illegal and it didn't cause any problems for me. Anyway, what I'm talking about now is simpler programmes that are not as good as Photoshop and Photoshop I actually bought. The problems with the other programmes didn't occur with Photoshop.
I've got one idea of a something for the Azumanga Daioh Spin-Off Sakaki & Kaorin, in one scene after Chiyo Chan's classmates Miruchi & Yuka found her living at Sakaki and Kaorin's new hom with Osaka, they notice that Kaorin's crush on Sakaki (though Osaka noticed in the Supplementary Lessons manga). And they imagined Sakaki & Kaorin both having a date or Sakaki saving Kaorin from gang members. Heck they also did their own drawings of Sakaki & Kaorin, which surprised Kaorin.
But the other characters (except Chiyo and Osaka since Miruchi & Yuka have told them) are still unaware of this.

I wonder though, when does that spinoff take place? I know it's after they graduate, but Chiyo moved to America. Does she move back to Japan, do you think?
This is actually an illusion anime, meaning it doesn't happen in reality since it's just a spin-off. It does take place after the graduation, but it doesn't show the main 6 characters after they graduated, instead it starts out with Chiyo and Osaka being the only 2 visiting at Chiyo's house, then Kaorin asking her mother if she wants to move out, then she asks Sakaki if she wants to live with her. Chiyo did move to america in reality, but living at Sakaki & Kaorin's home with Osaka didn't really happen. Oh and the characters are younger in the spin-off like Chiyo Chan and her classmates Miruchi & Yuka are still 10 years old (including Kimura's Daughter where she looked 6 or 8 in Kmura's Family Photo, but in the spin-off she's about Chiyo's age).
The exceptions are the prequels Azumanga Preschool and Azumanga College since they did happen in reality, but before the actual Azumanga Daioh anime and manga happened.
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.
