I got into Persona 4 last year when I was staying at a friend's place and they got me terribly hooked on the game (though I had to stop just when I had gotten to Kanji's bathhouse!). Started watching the anime one episode a week this year and recently finished, and man, these characters are addictive.
I love them all, but Naoto is by far the coolest, and thankfully I had no spoilers! Naoto's Shadow? Even better. X3 The thing is, all the Shadows are waaaay cooler than the Personas! In fact, a lot of the Personas, in my humble opinion, look pretty lame. In Naoto's case, I was especially disappointed--a classic detective in the little boy shorts, ungh, but... but... A FLY!!? Seriously!?
I'm so shallow about my Persona 4 fandom. XD Still, pleased I finally did some fanwork, however simple. I thought of all kinds of captions for this, but I hope it leads you all to your own interpretations. ^__^ (My pairing preference, I hope, should be obvious!)
I've been wanting to try this meme for a long time, but had difficulty choosing which pairing of mine was the most shameful while still being entertaining enough to do a meme about. Keep in mind that I spend about 90% of what I draw leaves me feeling deeply ashamed (and my interests, opinions, and appearance) - So I get the feeling I don't have the healthiest concept of shame.
I drew it in the style of someone whose sanity is slowly disintegrating! Yay!
So I started with Kanji/Teddie because I thought it would be perfect for the meme: there are canon hints but it's quite out there pairing-wise, but at the same it's cute and fluffy enough that it makes it entertaining fodder for the meme. Also there is a lot made of Kanji trying to stroke Teddie's fur in the game, which just screams "shameful pairing meme" to me.
Kanji -> [link] is a tough-guy who has a secret weakness for cute animals (he knits plushies) Teddie -> [link] is... well, he's sort of a talking plush toy that became real so he could 'score with the chicks' (but he doesn't seem picky, getting Kanji to 'smooch' him and saying endless things that indicate he has a crush on Yu, our main character)
You can probably see why I ship them... I didn't see it coming either but that's the beauty of crack ships. This is not the most shameful thing from P4 that I ship, but it's up there. And it's the funniest (I think)
free time during work = drawing time. this is a doodle on my not-so-used planner then i became too happy with it i decided to color it. i started coloring this in photoshop since it's the only software i have in my office pc that can color decently hahaha
thank you for the wonderful brushes that made me felt like i was almost in painter. yay multiple layers and clipping masks!
While looking for Persona wallpaper, it donned on me that Kanji doesn't have enough wallpaper! So I decided to make my own! The full-body image I found on google images so it does not belong to me. Credit to the original artist! Please use it
