FINALLY! So, for anyone who doesn't fully know yet, I've watched my first anime in years and said anime turned out to be Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid, and I'm so very glad it was. It was such a pleasant surprise and the show was heartwarming, sweet, and just downright wholesome with touches of bittersweetness to it, and just all around a very fun and feel-goods show to watch. 10/10 I highly recommend. I'm honestly pretty into the show and got caught up with the characters and the world they live in, so I did this!
I plan on doing headcanons and more art for the show and wanted to translate their designs in my style, if only so I could have a sorta-kinda ref to work with to keep the art somewhat consistent. It was a good exercise in design too, or at least a fun one! From left to right: Takiya, Fafnir, Lucoa, Tohru, Elma, Kobayashi, Riko, Shouta, and Kanna. Takiya's the only one I'm not entirely happy with and might go back and redraw him, but otherwise I'm overall pleased with how they all came out!
I'm debating on uploading each individually but until I figure that out, here's a link to their sta.sh:
Aaaaand my take on the dragons'... well, dragon forms!
With your style
With your designs
With you as animator
With you as directorù
It would be a greater beautiful looking and wonderfully written show that everyone would love!!!
I'm not asking you or telling you to draw these things, I'm just thinking out loud.
Never in my life I could thought that someone could make such a marvelous fan art. And with so much things in the right places (colors, shapes, poses, expressions).
(I haven't been on DeviantArt in so long oof, great to know people still have a problem with characters interpreted a different way ಠ_ಠ)
However, the rest of this show is amazing and you've done these characters justice!
Anyways, sorry for the ramble! Your style and headcanons are fantastic as always~ Don't let the salty comments let you down!
They're dragons. They breathe fire. A tan for them is kind of inevitable.
Honestly, my only problem with this picture is that Saikawa looks way too lanky. Maybe it's just the style, but it looks off.
The thing about Tumblr is right, though.
And they really look out of place with the characters who have been drawn exactly how they look in the anime.
Oh but let me guess, it's not a huge change right?! It'd be completely fine to make an Asian character's skin a little bit yellow, right! It's just harmless art, right!
